    Right back at ya kid. Your caches on Deer Isle are still quite vivid in my mind . . . and I will be back someday to "finish" some of them.

    As for the roof ladder, to paraphrase Agent "The truth is out there" Fox, "They're out there, Scully." Just dropped off one yesterday in fact. And I have to tell you each time I drop one off or make one I think to myself, "Becket is still trying to find one of these darned things. I wonder if this will be the one."

    Most definitely . . . that was the first overnight geocaching trip that I've done with the express purpose of said trip being to geocache . . . well that and a bit of education for my kid brother.

    I've also enjoyed searching for a couple of caches with you. If you ever want to get together and do a day of geocaches and don't mind towing around a fat, balding guy this summer just let me know . . . I'll even let you make fun of my Magellan and the maps showing that I'm standing halfway in the Penobscot River.

    Thanks . . . something tells me though that we'll be seeing your name here with 300 finds before long as you've got the geocaching bug and got it bad.

    Well, I kind of, sort of did just start caching . . . I started last July. Registered on July 4th and found my first cache a week or so later. I vividly remember hoping that I might be able to break 100 caches in my first year . . . foolish grasshopper that I was . . . never realized I would enjoy this hobby so much . . . and have this many before the first year was out. Thanks for the kind words.

    Same here Bruce . . . but since I don't do the events as you know I guess it will have to be on the trail . . . although I had a Big G's sandwich this past weekend and I have to say I may have to reconsider my "policy" of not doing events. Wicked good sandwiches.

    I know what you mean . . . we "talk" here, read the logs, etc. and don't live that far away and yet we have never met except on line. Incidentally, in case you or anyone was wondering, I'm a real person and not a sock puppet.

    Thank you . . . and I have to say I have enjoyed finding your many caches just as much . . . and I have truly appreciated your tips just as much. Sudonim and I both thank you for the "we were looking in the right area" tip for Magic Fingers.

    Thanks for the congratulations, words of encouragement on the column and on my signature item ladders. I found one of your geocoins just yesterday incidentally . . . I am sure it will only be a matter of time before you find a signature item as I slowly and steadily expand my geocaching trips further and further abroad as I explore this great state.

    24 in one month or so isn't bad at all . . . when I first started my goal was to get 100 in a year (even though it isn't about the numbers. ) Little did I know how addicted I would become . . . in fact my only complaint about geocaching is that it cuts into time spent ATVing. Trust me, before long you will have lots of caches under your proverbial belt as well if you find geocaching half as addicting as I have found it to be.

    Jake - congrats on 300! Thank you, too, for the caches you have placed and your sage advice when I have asked. Enjoy a wonderful summer.
