I'd go with the red wig and pumps, Bert, and maybe add a tiara for the picture...

 

Go, Bert, you can do it!   O0

12 of 31.  I almost did not make it today, but I thought I would try for a cache after seeing a movie with my daughter, and I found it, during rush hour...YUK!!

I have been managing to keep the streak going, thankfully we have a few in our area I had held off for a rainy day, or day light, or whatever so now they are being found.  Next week we will be spending week on the road to Florida and back so hoping to twist my mom's arm along the way... She won't have much of a choice when I am driving  :laugh:

Day before yesterday we encountered another cacher at the cache. It was neat! I've launched a few more trackables.

Keep up the good work, and if you come to an event you'll meet a Lot more cachers ;)

I must say, this August thing has been cool from a CO perspective too. The series caches have definitely experienced some lift even in the heat of Aug.

Activity must be up all over.

I didn't think I would like it, but I've swapped teams.

I've managed to do it for 14 days, but going out for these 5-10 mile bike rides in this heat every day is getting old.  I've even had to resort to LPCs, which I normally avoid like the plague, but still refuse to climb on playground equipment.  Normally I must sign the log before I take credit, but the other day I injured myself climbing a tree and logged the cache anyway, hoping the CO would take pity on a short guy in his mid-70s.  I promised not to litigate for my injury.  Fortunately, tomorrow is my meals on wheels delivery day so I can drive to a cache without wasting gas (another thing I refuse to do when geocaching).  Good luck to all of you that are accepting this challenge.  It's going to get tougher. [:D]

I'm still 14/14 and except for a few muggles this morning the going has been fairly easy for me.

What's the name of this tree-climbing excursion? I'm feeling monkey-ish  ;D

(On a less lighter note, I hope some rest & other OTC solutions have brought you some relief & it's not more serious)

We've been to a few a while back, couple of Flying Saucers and a couple down here in the SugarLand area. Now that we have the Rim to Rim to pontificate about, maybe we should look and see what's coming up. :D

I'm earning my souvenirs via FTF's. I've been doing cache-a-day for quite awhile now, so I wanted to up the challenge a bit for myself so I could feel the pain right along with everyone else. Lol. It helps that so many caches published in my area while we were on our honeymoon. My general hunting radius was waaaaay too far out before that. I hope everyone is enjoy this fun August challenge. It sure has brought some people (and caches) out of the woodwork.

It seems the flag series turned out to be something people have enjoyed for this challenge. I enjoy reading the logs and knowing I could help others.  I have to drive a bit further on some but we keep finding them day by day.

Yep, the flags were perfectly timed, me thinks. I know it was frustrating for you that PR held onto a big chunk of them for three weeks, but it still bore good fruit. I know it was painful for me to see all of them publishing around my home area while I was in Colorado. Lol
