When all was said and done, Ms Sunshine and I got 75 caches from the series, including the final puzzle. Some caches required wading into armpit-deep water, but we were able to get even a few like that (without any cottonmouth attacks). Others, we were not able to get at all. Great series. I recommend doing it now for the extra challenge. :-) I would recommend working backwards from the parking spot near element #85, but you may have to walk all the way back to your car. All in all, I think we did pretty well for a couple out-of-state cachers! It wouldn't totally surprise me if Ms Sunshine decided to go back and get elements number 1-8, which we skipped. I think we're in good shape for qualifying for our challenge. Thanks for the tips, Houston cachers!


That's totally awesome! Glad you liked your trip to Houston.

Y'all come back now, ya hear!

I noticed today while updating GSAK that you had grabbed a bunch of them. Congrats on the challenge completion. You earned it.

You, sir are a dedicated cacher. A model to be emulated in these wet times.

Got the challenge! It was an FTF, too. That was the first time I've gotten an FTF more than a year after the cache was published.

So who's headed to MN? Hey, Nov64, here's another challenge for you that involves a roadtrip. I'm sure Scott won't mind. :angel:

I'm thinking seriously of starting at 99 and working my way south in the morning.

What morning would that be Bert?

I still have some of the elements left on my list....

Tomorrow morning.  I'm thinking of parking on the north end off of Tanner maybe about 8am and using my bicycle.  I need the last 20.
