Yes indeed! I will get one of them on the way home from work tonight, so I am changing my tune! Bring on the souveys! (I'm such a wishy-washy guy!)

Since I have a bunch of freshly painted Berty tubes (with lids!), maybe I'll add to the mix for ya Bert.

I've picked up about 50 for P+ that I will get to him. As long as I can get more, I'll gladly share. They take the 20 ounce size Gatorade/Powerade bottle caps, which don't come with them and will hold a whole sheet of paper with ease.

I went through the trash can outside the control room at work and picked up 15 or so Gatorade lids.  They keep a cooler inside stocked full of the stuff on hot days.  O0

That is awesome Bert!  Reuse is even better then Recycle!

 

I'm looking forward to finding them!

 

 

By the way, my day 3 was a FTF at 6:45am on an ammo can under an abandon railroad bridge in Sienna Plantation.  Who'd thunk??   ~windknot~ apparently.  http://coord.info/GC4HFEQ

I'm three for three right now. The area around me is mostly dead but there are few here and there I can get. I also teach guitar in home so that allows me to drive around and get some more that are out of Baytown. This will be hard to pull off but I'm definitely going to try and get all 31.

Fourth day of my August streak. I've mapped out the next week with caches in Bellaire and SW Houston. I just had published 13 new caches. 4 just outside our neighborhood and 9 in a park near the Westpark Toll Road.

 

BTW Bert, I just painted the 3 Bertie tubes you gave me when we did the Mid-town bike trail. Looks like I'll be placing them in a small park that used to have some caches that have been archived.

We're enjoying it. When we go out caching we usually have a "destination," so we actually have a lot of caches unfound in our home radius, making it all a bit easier.

Stan plans to use those 9 in the park  along the Westpark Toll Road for 9 of our days since they are near his work.  Normally these would be ones that we'd get all at once but we'll use them for the streak.  Streaks really cause cachers to be inefficient with their caching, so after the 31 days, we'll go back to caching like we normally would.

My current streak is only 10 days and that was 3 years ago. I routinely work about 300 hours OT per year and its just danged hard to go after a cache after working a 12 hour day, especially in the heat of summer. I'm at 390 hours OT already this year and I missed the first two days of August due to the heat and work, so if I head west this evening after work, instead of going home east, I can get 1 today and that will give me 9 in a row. I will do it unless it becomes ridiculous and on my off days, I'll cache as I usually do - scorched earth style!

We're up to 11 (of 11).  Our previous streak (not that we paid any attention to it) was 4.  I don't think streaks are our thing.  Neither are power trails. :stirpot:

I thought the same thing.  Stan had to tell me it was a magnifying glass.
