Don't know how we missed this one......Ekidokai has quietly gone past 500 found. Congratulations Mike! So. the question is......how many of these were at night?

Im willing to bet if you counted all the caches that Mike has revisited while introducing people to the sport that he'd be well over 1K. Congrats Mike.

Congratulations on reaching 500! And I agree, I'll bet many of those were at night. I used to read where Gob-ler would use the aid of his cell phone light to assist, but I've never heard of people signing the log by the light of a cigar. Keep on trucking mike, and like Tom Beaudette "We'll leave the light on for ya."

Way to go - but isn't it like a ghost to just spirit past something? Congrats, Ekidokai!

Congratulations - I'm so glad one of your 500 (WOW!) finds was one of our caches, even though I did have to watch Kaching Karen "drag you up a mountain" to do it!! LOL! You're certainly one of the good sports that makes geocaching a good sport!

Wow, thank you. I don't do many things quietly.

Many of the high muggle area ones in the cities were done at night. You'd have to check the police reports to get a better idea how many. Some of those poor people are still shaking. All the State quarter ones I think I did at night.

The scariest was Arizona State Nickname. I almost slid into the canyon a few times at 3AM.

You guys are too funny.

Come to think about it I have revisited many caches many times. Between the SALT Institute documentary, the radio programs, the paper and the magazines, some caches have had a lot of exposure.

Yes I have signed many by cigar light and set one or two on fire knocking my ash into the cache. Damp logs are not all bad.

I think this was the only one I got to do with the owner. It was a privilege meeting and caching with you. Good sport, I don't know if I'd say that. Stubborn might be more like it.

Congrats Mike. Thanks for all that you have done for this hobby.

I have not payed much attention to my own milestones. This was one I did plan out. The GPS Adventure Maze in Baltimore Maryland. If I get to 1K it probably will be a GRC or LPC.

The best part about the eclectic things I do is watching how big the eyes get and the little screams that come out of big burly cops, firemen, EMT's and other municipal officials. I tell them ghost stories, tails about geocaching, cemetery adventures and things like that all day and then driving down the road my Nuvi goes bing and I have to stop and run off into the bushes to find a cache. Most of the time I can't pry them out of the van after dark, but if I can get them to try it, once is about all I get.

As for ding things for the hobby, I don't really think I have done anything that special. I'm just really glad you all like the hides.

Well now that's not so hard . . . I mean I cry like a little girl every time I watch Old Yella and I still refuse to watch any Friday the 13th movies. ;) :)

I'm a little late reading this Mike, but had to say Congratulations to you on a big accomplishment and thank you so much for all you do for the rest of us. I loved doing the SMR series...only wished I had waited till they were all out before doing them.

Congratulations Mike! You were one of the first Geocaching people we met (at Gobler's going away event) and are definitely one of the nicest!

Congrats, Mike. In a sport/hobby filled with oddballs, you're definitely right up at the top of the list. :):):)

Again, thank you all so very much. This would be so boring without all of you. I feel so privileged that you have allowed me to participate in this great adventure.

As soon as things dry up a bit I'll be up there.
