It's sometimes better to be lucky than good.  I didn't think we had a chance with MaggieB, mtp, and MB around...lurking somewhere.  :(

We only had time for one this morning, but if we had gotten up about 15 or 20 minutes earlier, we might have had time to go after this one too.

...there were 26 slightly chewed travel bugs, and a rubber button that looked like it came off of an Etrex  ;)

;D

I had to read this twice before I finally got it!  We actually were 2TF on that cache.  We found it on the way to the E-Rock Challenge.

Go after "BD" sometime when you really need a lunchtime cache.  The grub nearby is cheap and good.. ;D..one really great thing about our neighborhood.

I finally got my first FTF on Heavy Metal. Mr. Trog of Team Troglodyte and I found Muskrat Love together, but he is the one who spied it first so I guess he gets the FTF on that one. I also have a FTF on Soccer Anyone, this morning. You have to find Heavy Metal and Muskrat Love to get the coords for Soccer Anyone. Problem I am having is Soccer Anyone is not listed on Geocaching.com for me to log it!

Texas Native - The waypoint for Soccer Anyone? is GCQ685. It has been archived - that's probably why you can't find it.

It is so weird not seeing Red Eye Rebels on the FTF list.

We got so used to Ray being on the top of the list.

I guess we'll have to start placing some caches offshore, so Ray can get back into the groove!

Nah, don't trouble yourself.......I am too busy with other stuff, like solving those puzzles down your way.  I appreciate the kind words though, it was weird not seeing my name either.  It does appear this addiction is somewhat cyclical, ask SockPuppet.  I may be back someday............ >:D

Nope that isn't the right one. The one I found is by TXHawgHunter and is in the Conroe area. It is brand new. I got an e-mail from him and he said it should be posted in a few days because there was a problem witht he way he listed it.

I finally got me a FTF today and it was the BEST dern cache if I say so myself.

I haven't logged it yet, but it was put out by Houston Control and the name of the cache is "A View of Texas Independence" it's a letterbox cache and I finally got to use my chili pepper stamp ljtxhiker gave to as a gift.

Oh my gosh it was a great caching day thanks to Houston Control!

After noting on 'another local forum' that Pepper was dropping peppers on the east side, I took an hunch and paid a "maintenance visit" to my Texas Independence cache.  Bingo!  Jackpot!  Woo Hoo!  Got me one of them highly sought-after coins!

THEMELMAN;   GRANGERFAM;   FIVE SECRETHUNTERS;   COPPERFIELDROSE   and   ATMA   logged in 3 FTFs each

I  hate to complain about the bookkeeping since I do so much of it and probably have lots of mistakes, but . . .

Unless I've got something wrong I had 3 FTFs in March.

Since I've never made the record sheets in this forum before, I hate to let this one slip by.

Yes RER was quite the FTF hound searching for cachings at nighttime.  I think I was essentially shutout for FTF in March on GC.com but I know I had several on TC.com.  I am glad there are others who are very enthusiastic about getting a FTF.

Yes, Thank You much for the stats....it was quite an experience for us to be grabbing so many in so short a time...and there were a lot of times when Mrs. OSC was still sleeping while I was out grabbing a lot of them at around 3AM....I had a case of Red Eye!  O0

...but if you read my DNF log for GCW02H you can see how going for a FTF can get you in a little trouble!!!  ;D
