Tough time of the year to pass the big 1K!
Must have brought your shovel along with the GPSr :)

I knew you were close but to do this in the winter (without going South) is a great achievement. Congrats and on to many more!

Congrats on the milestone. How many inches or feet of snow were all those caches under? I know about several of them. ;)

Congratulations to you guys!!! Hard to find even the ground this winter. Was a lot of fun caching with you at the Mess-lost-ski cache.

Congrats Team Richards!!:cool:
Impressive, especially when you're spending Saturday afternoons taking other cachers to caches you've already found!!:eek::) Thanks again for being fun guides!
Here's to many more laughs, finds, and coins!:D

Congratulations to the Team for the huge accomplishment! You are all an inspiration!

In your honor, we'll start a new thread called "1000 reasons why we love geocaching."

Way to go Team Richards. As I struggle along trying to find one more to hit 250 I am inspired by you folks, Gobbler's 3000 and the thoughtful group that plays this game. Keep 'em coming and thanks for the clues you have provided to this newbie as I continue my search for "plastic pleasures." (Careful with that one kiddies!)http://geocachingmaine.org/forum/images/icons/icon10.gif

Thank you all for the kind words. It has been a lot of fun I don't see that ending any time soon. We sure did have to dig out quite a few this winter. I think the funnest one was one of the piano keys.
I was at ground zero and there was nothing but snow. I turned to leave and my foot went through the snow up to my...well past my knee. When I pulled my foot out I saw I had stepped in the middle of a guard rail..... found it!

We need to thank you all, because we wouldn't have gotten that many cache with out all your help.
We're very fortunate to have met and become friends with so many great people.

Just for giggles I googled Plastic Pleasures, I would strongly recommend the faint of heart not google it. But on the other hand I just ordered one.:D

Then please don't until after bedtime - this is a family sport! There would be a lot of explaining to do.

The one find that sums up the Team's tenacity was 42 16 MINUTES EVEN, GC17R58. This is a small rock hide a key placed in a grassy field at the top of a hill in Portland. Hard enough, but then it snowed before the cache was found.

To entice people to look for it through the snow, I posted a $25 cash bounty. Many folks looked, but Team Richards made several trips and shoveled off a large area, before laying claim to the FTF and the bounty.

This typifies the effort put forth by the Team, congratulations guys!!:):D

I just cam ein from shoveling three roofs that all had over 2 feet of snow.
Although finding 42 16 was a lot of fun, sitting here now I can't believe
I SHOVELED A FIELD!!!! Now those are the things you remember.

All I can say Dave is good for you, if I was not so busy that time of the year I probably would have been there helping you.

I would have enjoyed that ...and I'm sure it wouldn't have taken so long to find it. :)

Yes, The cache was Beachcombers two lights challenge and the park was beautiful. We went and did a few other caches in the area and walked on the beach it was nice to feel dirt and feel the sun.
