GeoCraig's Caching Adventures

After some time off, I'm back with an update.
On May 31, 2007, I logged my 3000th cache, Reed All About It.
When Elin (EMC of Northridge, CA) found her 3000th cache, I joined the celebration. So I figured there would be a little symmetry if I found one of Elin's caches for my #3000. And I didn't want to find a lame lamp post cache for the milestone. Elin had recently placed a cache on a trail, so I stopped by on the way home from work and picked it up. The cache is in my right hand. At least the bottom of the cache is pictured. I didn't what to show the entire cache because that would give it away.
The trip to 3000 has taken about 6 years. However, after finding my first few caches, I took about a year off. So it has really been about 5 years. It has taken me to some very interesting places across the country (14 states--see the map below, ignoring KY and IL and adding NV), some strange parking lots, a few pairs of torn pants and wrecked shirts, and too many cases of poison oak.
I really don't want to know how many miles (or gallons of gas) I've traveled. I have enjoyed to journey, proving that "not all who wander are lost."

A Great Caching Trip
Saturday, February 04, 2006
On a very enjoyable trip with my wife along the Central Coast to visit with our daughter, son-in-law, and grandson, I hit and surpassed the 2000 cache mark. #2000 was a very nice cache northwest of Cayucos---Hole Hunt. The weather was beautiful and the views great. A perfect way to celebrate #2000.

A Fine Joke
After Dana (Might Dee) did my Simi Valley Park cache series, I guess he thought that I needed a refill. He placed this cache--Endangered Kodak Moments--nearby. It is a quick find. However, the logbook is in one of the cans--and you have to find it. Of course, I only had 5 or 6 left when I found the log book. And, as an added bonus, I got to do it in the rain.

First Cache of 2006
Hollywood Sign was my first cache of 2006. It is located near the Hollywood Sign and was a short 10-minute walk from the car. The air was clear from the recent rains and I wanted to go farther, but was short on time.
2005 was a good geocaching year. I found 871 caches, including several in Alaska during our 30th anniversary trip. I'll probably reach the 2000 milestone in February or March. This has been an enjoyable hobby that has taken me to some interesting places.

One of the Reasons I Like Geocaching
I needed some exercise, so on the way home from work yesterday, I did Dunhnh, duhn duhn-duhn... --a quick walk of about 1.5 miles roundtrip in the hills above Glendale. This is what I got to watch on my way to the cache.
