Bgrffdave has never been known to do anything the easy way. I knew he was going to pick a significant cache for his 100th. He did so today doing Groleau's Eagle Mountain Cache. Not only did he do it, he brought along his wife (ALinMaine) and his sister and her family (Francis Family).

That may not seem like a lot until one realizes, the youngest member of Francis Family is 10 1/2 months old (and was in a backpack with bug netting). I (Grandmother), missed this great adventure as I was returning from a trip to Portland. Have been promised if the TB is not retrieved, I will get an escorted trip to the cache.

Congrats to all my "kids" on a family day of caching and a milestone! Here's to many more memorable days.

Those were the good old days, but we used "snugglies."

It's a lot easier to cache when the kids are all grown up, but we still go out as a family to find caches.

Congrats on your 100th cache!

I remember the "snuggly" very well. I used it to carry my oldest when he was 6 months old along a 3 mile undergound adventure in the "Mammoth Caves" national park in Kentucky. Sure brings back some fond memories.

Congrats on your 100th cache as well.

Congrats on your 100th. Nice to see families caching together. Long way to go, to catch the old one.
