Thanks for the stats PP. It is fun to take a trip down memory lane. Many of my finds were a result of your fun and interesting caches.

In 2005, I had never heard of geocaching though I had my Garmin GPS 12 Map since September 2000.


There is no adventure without risk.

My heartbeat would increase when I saw a new geowyz! or Dreamcachers cache come up. Also enjoyed the Bosun, CaptJ, and ParkerPlus caches.

 It was just one more opportunity for you to leave me a "Hi Kathy" note to show you got there before me.

I forgot about those notes. :) DO you remember Cache Abels would put second place ribbons when they were FTF. They are a great couple. Lettie is a kick and Jim is a true southern gentleman.

In June 2005 I found my first cache. At that time I still lived in the Netherlands and had owned a GPSr since 2001, but had never heard of a terrible addiction game called GeoCaching.

8 Years later I am at 1548  :) 's and still VERY active.... it took me almost 7 years to reach 500 finds, but only 1 year to get the other 1048!
