Right now I am planning on the first or second week of March...whichever my job okays. Will post here when I know for sure. I will have enough time to do the whole series.

Been told there are 2500? Not sure about that number. If i have the time and money I would definitely join you for the Route 66 series!

He could ONLY find 1000 in a day on the ET? Will try and break that just to beat log dawgs record

FYI That was done by the crew who went out after I placed that cache just to rub it in our faces. 

 

 

Hey I was almost strangled to death trying to reach the goal of 1000, but we did it.  And yes, we did it because we wanted to *Rub it in Log Dawg's face*!!  :2funny:  O0

Just go place PQs at the start, Rachel, and Tonopah.  Maybe a few others.  That way when you zip through them all, you can do any of the numerous offshoots.

not including the geo-art :)

I'll probably never meet that challenge (and have no real desire to), but I think I may hide a challenge cache in Log Dawgs back yard that requires someone to find 1009 caches in a day.  >:D


And you can only look for it after midnight :)

 

Isn't everything after midnight?

Be sure to dip a couple Cachestacker TBs on all of those you finally log. I heard he LOVES seeing those discoveries flying in on .1 mi at a time geocache runs ;)

( Kidding of course. )

Drop it, pick it up and dip it at each one. Might as well set a record for log entries

You won't come back with blown back white hair and beard will ya?

I've heard things about some special portions of that area. I thought I'd share what I've heard at various events where our houston geocaching elite got loose lips after one too many Arnold Palmers ;)

First, don't forget the TP ! Or be prepared to sacrifice some socks/underwear.

Second, don't fraternize with the shape shifting aliens. No, that isn't really who you think it is.

Third, watch inception just before u go, just in case. There's important tips if you nod off.

Fourth, "they" LOVE Slim Jim's, and Pickled Eggs.

There's more I've heard, but it's just may be foo, since I've not braved the ETH personally... in this lifetime... that I can recall.

When I lived and worked in Saudi Arabia, they always had us carry the following items in the back of our vehicles:

  • first aid kit
  • matches
  • 5-gallon container of water
  • 5-gallon container of diesel (for extra fuel for the vehicle and for the other reason mentioned below)
  • two spare tires (one to use if you got a flat, the other to burn -- if stranded -- by soaking it with diesel fuel and lighting it....the thick black smoke makes you easier to find by the search and rescue teams)

Can alien skin be used as TP? Just a thought while we're on the topic of resourcefulness.... :)


Deep Woods Off....my most commonly used cologne...

Be careful if you go for NV oldest cache XKD-380 (somewhere around ET 1150's) My walking stick set off a coyote trap. Looked around and found a second trap close by. Got the heart rate up a bit.... :o
