that is awesome! I love the smoke!

Wait... let me get this straight.... 1000 caches in the train and another 700 on the trail road. And not a guard road in sight! I'm in awe!

I have NO interest in the ET highway, but would love to do this these! I just need to take october and november off to do it.

Sweet!

I think I agree completely Geek. Just one question, what's a guard road? Are you saying they'd have to be hiked. If so, I think your 2 months could be right, just not sure those are the best months to go (as I'm sure you're well aware).

I discovered this gem earlier this week..... solved the first 36 of the 50 puzzles and am a little stuck on the others. I have an idea/direction on how to solve them but so far the answers I've found just don't fit in.

 

Anyway, it's only about 3 hrs. from Houston so something AB-SO-LU-TE-LY feasable for a day-cache-trip!

 

Anyone else in the crew already taken a crack at this one (either solving or finding :))?

I was aware of the star, but have only solved a few. I know a couple of people who've done it and probably still have the solutions. :coolsmiley:

 

Let me know if you decide to make a day trip to go get them.

We did those with the 143 ones and a bunch of others on a long day of puzzles to break 100 in a day.  Doing 143 and Star series in a day is totally doable.

Sorry Larry, I solved them all this morning (thanks again ZHR!) and my lovely wife offered to go out and do a little road-trip while they were still fresh in memory... now who could resist that?!?

 

So, here's the result of a wonderful day of caching:

I'm glad you were able to grab them so quickly!  I read one of your logs, and agree that it is a beautiful area.  We love the back roads in the area, and there are a lot of good series in that area.  This was a good weekend for a road trip!

We did the Louisiana Star last weekend.  It took about 50 miles of driving (with only two input errors that were minor), but it was fun.  It took us all day, but that makes 3 stars for us.  When we did the OK Star, I had put ALL of the coordinates in wrong.  When the first one was in a back yard, we figured out our (my) mistake.  We re-arranged our schedule and did that star a few days later when we were on our way home.  That made it easier to sign the final for the OK County Challenge.
