You know what Bruce I was wondering why my found first count had jumped. That surely explains it.
Thanks all for the nice comments. I guess I can say I did it my way. Actually while FTF's don't count for a single thing there is something special in finding a cache exactly how the cache owner intended it to be found. Also there is something about an empty logbook.
So, while I will still do some of the FTF stuff it will be at a much more reasonable pace.
Thanks again for the kind comments.
Congratulations Dick, I know how much fun you have had and I enjoy the stories.
You know Gob-ler is now over 600 first to finds. This is surely dedication to an enjoyable sport. Congrats to you and congrats to the Maine cachers that have put out all these caches for us all to find.:)
As Joey Bishop used to say..."Son-of-a-gun!"
And you find time to hunt Turkey too!
Congratulations to the "Grand Master" of Maine Geocaching!
King of FTFs
