Andrew (@dangerkitties) and I both reached our 1,000 milestone on this vacation to New York / Iceland.  

 

Andrew - New York City at the Intrepid Air and Space Museum.  He was so happy he got to see the space shuttle and take a picture with his space shuttle geocoin.  The cache wasn't all that exciting (it was a piece of paper stuffed under a rock, not even in a container), but seeing the shuttle made up for it I hope.

My 1,000 was at a lighthouse on an "island" off of Reykjavik, Iceland (aka the northernmost capital in the world).  The island is only accessible for a few hours per day at low tide when a rock and kelp outcropping is passable.  Otherwise, you would have to swim.  We made it out there at 7:45 am before the sun rose and trudged through the snow to get this cache.  This is the place where people go to see the Northern Lights, but unfortunately, we didn't see them on this trip.  Oh well, we still had a lot of fun and got in a lot of caching! :)

I bet Iceland isn't a country that many American cachers have. I used to travel globally a lot, and I only ever got to fly over Iceland. Never landed there for anything. Is there a country souvenir for Iceland?

TW - yes there is a souvenir. It came out during the celebration for the 2,000,000 active geocache.

Secret handshake?!? Nobody taught me that....

I still have Iceland in my 'to visit' list.

What a nice pair of caches to hit the major 1k milestone! Very very cool!

I'd love to hear how the Icelandic lighthouse became the target sometime.

Well done you guys. We'll done.

You should definately talk to my wife kalvey about the lighthouse cache as it is a very cool story how to even get to it! --- GCKA0T
