For me the highlight was finding a Dreamcacher cache or getting a FTF to get my name listed on the geowyz board of honor. High Five is still one of my favorite caches as was Circumcenter. Both cachers happened to be geophysicists.
I remember the old time events.
One of the first events we attended was held at the home of usmorrows. It was pot luck and everyone brought food and lawn chairs to sit around a gab. There was also some caching style games and prizes for the winners. We were fresh off the farm back then and enjoyed every bit of it.
We were so star struck to be in the presence of the geocaching leaders for all of Texas. usmorrows and geowyz were the top cachers in the state with about 600 finds each. I remember thinking that it would take us years to ever get that many caches.
Ah, the memories!
