Hi all, it has been a while since I posted in here but since I have made plans to attend the Block Party, I wanted to see who else going. I was going to drive and considered renting a camper for the trip but then decided that the time to drive there and back would take too much of my vacation days so airplane tickets are booked for us, hotel is reserved and I just need to rent a car. If anyone else is going and want to meet up some while there, Brandon & I would love to share the experience.
Welcome! Its feasible to to stick with your streak from the beginning - I started with mine a little over a month after I started,( July 30th 2013), so just take Kirbydox's advice & keep the ones close to home available! :)
Oh! & don't worry about sporting your EBay buy! I still geocache exclusively with my iPhone #cachingonthecheap is good to me!
Welcome! Hope to see you on the trails or at an event soon. If you continue on your streak I would suggest NOT caching out the area around home completely. It's nice to save some of those for those terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days when you need a cache but don't feel like driving 20 miles for the nearest one.
