I wrote a note on this one which is 4 miles from my house today and I will go out there this week and check to see if it is there.  The owner performed maintenance on it last year and moved the coordinates which is a good sign:  Down by the Bayou GC2HTBK - was last found on 5/14/11 by Darkness09 with four DNF's since.

I went out and found these two today. Both had become untethered and had wandered and/or become covered with natural debris. While I was in that general area, I grabbed an FTF on one from a week ago that was off by 80 feet. One of those days where things were just going my way. I love those kinds of days...

 

GC1P1D6 Journey to the Center of the Woods

GC2765K open shortest path first

I hope that you'll be having one of those days for the day of the Texas Challenge.

 

 

Ironically, that's the exact same thing I was thinking on the way home from the area. Lol. Seriously...

GC2245 - All my Ex's live in Texas is off the list.

 

Had this one solved for quite awhile, just never had the right opportunity to go looking for it. The better half is off this week for spring break, so when I got home yesterday I asked if she was game for a hike to look for a cache that hadn't been found in three years, she was ready to leave before I was!

I agree, Russ. It's become my other favorite caching thing to do. I like chasing FTF's at one end of the scale and hunting down the oldies at the other end.

No, I save those almost exclusively for the light of day since they usually require a deeper search. I only pillage FTF's at night. The early bird may get the worm, but the bats have all night time fun.  :)

Looks like I need to get busy. After weeding out the ones that appear to be long gone and the ones that are either too far or aren't worth messing with (pretty much all of them in the Highlands), I see 21 of them worth pursuing. I'll get on that Oh Mighty Slave Driver. :)

I guess I should've been clearer. They aren't worth messing with for me because they are so far from my area, and the one time I stopped in that area the guys were driving cattle from one section to another, and one of the guys was clearly not happy that I was there. Maybe others have encountered something similar and that's affected people going after them? I don't know....that was just my experience.

GC2WE5E - Under the Un-Bridge is off the list as of this morning!!

 

Have had this one solved for quite a while but have held off getting it for two reasons. The first being it has not been found in over 32 months (love finding old forgotten caches!) and the second being we needed this rating to finish out our DT Grid. Since this cache hadn't been found in so long we really wanted it to be the final cache found to fill our DT/Fizzy grid!

I got a wild hair that since we were so close to filling the DT grid, it would be kinda neat to have it filled before hitting our 2000 finds mark, and since the better half of the team is in Virginia and DC visiting our daughter and son-in-law and planning on getting a bunch of virtual caches later today and tomorrow, I figured I'd better get it done this morning before she went caching in DC today, so the other daughter and I hooked he boat up and ran over this morning to go search for this one, hoping that it was still there after over 32 months!

Pulled the boat up to the bank, tied off, and went looking. It didn't take but maybe two minutes from the time we got out of the boat until the log was in hand, had the coordinates figured out pretty much spot on! Find #1993 and DT grid is now filled!

What is a DT grid? I mean, I assume it has something to do with terrain/difficulty level but is there an actual grid, like the delorme?

If you check your stats on geocaching.com it shows your finds broken down by difficulty and terrain--your DT grid.

I got a wild hair that since we were so close to filling the DT grid, it would be kinda neat to have it filled before hitting our 2000 finds mark, and since the better half of the team is in Virginia and DC visiting our daughter and son-in-law and planning on getting a bunch of virtual caches later today and tomorrow, I figured I'd better get it done this morning before she went caching in DC today, so the other daughter and I hooked he boat up and ran over this morning to go search for this one, hoping that it was still there after over 32 months!

Pulled the boat up to the bank, tied off, and went looking. It didn't take but maybe two minutes from the time we got out of the boat until the log was in hand, had the coordinates figured out pretty much spot on! Find #1993 and DT grid is now filled!

 

Russ, that's absolutely neato that you were able to sync things up like that. Congratulations on both the find and the completion of your grid. Awesome story.
