woot. I found cedar beach first. Now I have show my daughter it so we can be even on caches. It scared me when I saw a log entry but it was just a start log;) Happy caching.

thanks, it was a good feeling and I introduced a friend to caching. He already ordered a GPSr and will be working NJ with his son.

Congrats Lefty,
I was ftf "mariners park" cache on Deer Isle yesterday. I was really surprised too, it was posted new on Sun. w/ one of the Jeep TB's. I thought there would be a swarm when I got there. The only swarms were the mosquito's.
Now I just have to figure out where to leave the Jeep!

Woohoo! Way to go, Lefty! Be careful, if you catch the "FTF Bug" you'll start looking for them at odd hours or picking them up on your commute to work. It's highly contagious... :o

Congrats! It's quite a rush isnt' it :D We beat Bluegrass Gyrl by five minutes not long ago. She was inputting coordinates into her GPS as we were walking to our truck. Now that we have our FTF and knowing BGG and us live close by, we'll relax and know she'll usually beat us. !

Congrats Lefty on your First FTF...what a blast huh? The anxiety you get as you reach for the logbook and wonder if your first or not is intense! Keep caching!

Congrats Lefty on your first FTF. Guess I gotta start looking again, at 57 FTF's been waitin for some others to catch up. Homemadezinnias have been getting a bunch of FTF's lately. I got a FTF in Boothbay area that had sat for nearly three months (all Summer) last year. Just regular cache that had slipped thru and no one spotted it. I didn't dare put FTF in logbook because I thought the logbook might have been replaced and I had printed out my sheet when I saw thecache come up originally. Very strange !!! Keep on caching, I'll see you one of these days.

it's so cool to get a ftf! i really earned the ones on mt waldo. i am still wondering whatever possessed me that day to go do those caches - it wasn't even about the ftf. i really enjoyed my last (5th) ftf in the machias area. it was at a beautiful place. congratulations, lefty!

Thanks everyone. I got lucky and happened by gc and noticed it wasn't to far away so I grabbed my buddy and took off from work. Cost me 1.5 hours of comp time but it was worth it http://forums.speedguide.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif
