On a quest for 1000

Dad and I started caching the same day, on August 3rd 2003. But because of work schedules, and degree of obsession with the game, I racked up the numbers while he enjoyed a more sane pace.

But today he was within 10 caches of reaching that great milestone of 1K. So while testing out the new setup, we started picking up a few. Then it became we picked up enough to set him at 999.

Oh what to do?

I sent out a Twitter request for suggestions and was soon standing beside Catch the Wave, a water cache that I'd heard much about. We looked, headed down to Chevron to get the needed supplies, and were soon back at Ground Zero.

Teamwork got this cache in hand with only a half gallon rather than the usual gallon and cheers went up for his 1000th cache find.

Not a bad day at all. :-)

Today, 12/20/2009, we found:

Sign Of The Times 4 (FTF at 12:21p)
A Partridge in a Pear Tree
Two Turtle Doves
Three French Hens
Four Calling Birds
Five Golden Rings
Six Geese A-Laying
Seven Swans A-Swimming
Catch the Wave
