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."
