In regards to my avatar, I really like it. I think it portrays someplace where we all have been before. Endlessly searching for that micro that could be in a thousand different cracks, testing your addiction. Elusive darn things sometimes, ...caches.

Yeah, but the wailing wall has got thousands of little "logs" stuck it it.

No guess claimed today.

I got one find today, LB got six.

Half-Canadian has laid claim to tomorrow.

Wow! I did some nice caches today! Puppers, I Dig! was very cool!

 

In fact I did a little pushing today. 26 finds, 3 dnfs. I hit Little Blue's "Welcome to Fall City" for #900! I am now at 904! Maybe I put LB off for one or two more days.

 

Say, is there really a trail going up "Wow, What a View"? I saw some on top but I sure didn't use one going up and lost one going down the other way. :anicute:

Woohooo! I must say, I don't know how you do it. 26 is a record for me. and yes, that is a lot of work! You'll catch me before long.

 

Half-Canadian had today claimed. Noone has tomorrow claimed.

Hey, if you continue to have 26-cache Sundays you won't have to write that concession speech anytime soon!

 

BTW, I'm going to be in Kentucky (on business) on the 27th (our "chosen day"), Please broadcast the statistics on the World Wide Web so I am not kept in suspense. :huh:

Checkign the stats out...EraSeek has 910, CG has 895, and LB has 885.

Yes but I know for a fact our Little Blue was out and about today caching like crazy, we even passed her on the Evergreen Bridge she was headed West, we were headed East.

I was headed to work, and then I was headed home. I did go out after I got home and tried to plant another cache, but it didn't work. Hmmm. Surface was aluminum and had some sort of oil on it that instantly nutrualize the glue on the backing of 2 different types of velcro. Nothing seems to stick. Have to re-think it or find a new spot. Still at 910 and will be for probably two more days.

Blah- started the day (well, after lunch and much Fraggle Rock watching with the girls- this is their Spring Break) with a DNF very close to home. Got fed up with caching close to home from that DNF and we headed over to Seattle (after a McLunch break- see above kids' Spring Break) where the caches are in parks that don't require lengthy walking with a 4 yr old and 7 yr old. Well, started that with 2 DNFs! (Probably muggled-eh! :blink: ). Ok, 2 1/2 hours later, zero caches found! <_<

 

Then we settled back down and got about 10. The girls found many parks with slides (hey, the coolest was at Swedish Hospital!) and I got to sign my name on some paper in boxes. Sorry we missed Pepper and the gang!

Yes you are looking good. You will win a Geocoin from me and LB and I think a bug tag? from her.

...another one bites the dust. <_< I bet I'll only be a day or two off, too. Good luck, all!

Ok, after looking at their respective stats, I notice that LB has 16 virts, 6 events, 5 webcam, 2 LCs, and 1 CITO. That means she has a total of 866 real geocaches. Era has 20 virts, 7 events, 1 webam, zero CITO, and (cough) 8 LCs, for a total of 874.

 

Therefore, the true score right now is LB at 866 and EraSeek at 874. Using my calculator and six pieces of scratch paper, I find a difference of 8 geocaches separating the two.

 

If one considers that LB is a bit more spry that Era, I think this should be over very soon.

Criminal, in the interest of accuracy :ph34r: I should come clean and fess up to having one EarthCache find- and while supercool, was indeed a virtual. No paper to sign! <_<

 

So I guess that would make our difference 9 caches in that view.

 

BUT, as to our relative 'spryness'- I remember a certain Mr. EraSeek who sprinted past all of us on the hike up Teneriffe and only stopped to find the caches on the way up! :blink:

As I said before "All's fun in love and war", you should know that Criminal, and by the way, where's your guess? I don't recall seeing one! Wiling to throw lemons but not willing to take a risk? Come on, shoulda jumped in and joined the fun.

 

PDXmarathonman, to keep up that pace I'd have to quit my job and get a divorce! (beside I like having faster women chasing me :lol: )

Thanks! I had a fun day with your caches today! Helped chase away the rainy weather blues. :D

 

Just looked for 7 today- too drippy for the kids to be out much. So the pool lives another day! (Man, I have to not watch who has what day or I'll feel bad for everyone who doesn't win...) B)

 

Wow, doesn't it feel weird to have over 900 caches? Now 1000 doesn't feel far away at all! When I started caching that seemed insurmountable! Mind boggling how quickly they all add up! :lol:

 

I'm glad I was able to find your cache for 900!

Criminal, I do agree actually that some of these are not real caches. In "real" I would include viruals, webcams, and the rare locationless ( those that are not reverse caches). Where you truely seek a coordinate with your GPS is the key. It could be argued that at least a logbook is required and I can live with that also. In that case you would be correct. Reverse, events, CITO, in my book are just numbers.

 

But we are doing fun. So who cares.

Well, since you're obviously not interested in putting up a decent fight :lol: I'll have to console myself with the fact that WeightMan had his pick in just ahead of me. Otherwise, I would have picked the 16th. Yeah that's it, that's the ticket. B)

Don't just give up there's still lots of time left tonight!!!!

Seriously, it's been a fun amusement watching this thread.

Alas, had the weather been at least 1/2 way nice (ironically, next week looks beautiful!), we would have started earlier and had a decent chance of breaking the barrier. There were so many boxes on the screen up there and it was hard to stop the van from heading over to them! :D But it was not to be. Sorry, Wander Lost! B)

 

Tomorrow I'll see some of you at CITO and you can either applaud me for stretching my time out there or admonish me for not getting out and caching, depending on the date you chose! :lol:

 

We live to battle another day!

 

(On a side note, my 4 yr old is now issuing caching challenges to all she meets as an odd by product of this game- just be forwarned! She has recruited her imaginary friends Dernell and Super Littlefoot to be on her team!) B)

I was really only kidding about prizes, I must have missed that part. I thought we were competing for bragging rights.

 

I 'try' to cache with a 3 year old, I applaud you for being able to get any caches with a 4 yr old!!!

If Little Blue makes it on Sunday, You guys can keep the coins. We're just in it for the glory. :lol:

I'm witl Kfam on that. Unless, of course, there is a Moun10Bike coin to be had someplace. I'm just in this for the bragging rights and I may just have them.

 

Now you go out and cache your little heart out LB. Find lots of them on Saturday before and after the CITO event.
