    We are all not Doctors, Lawyers, Policemen, and FBI agents. While I might find what KK does interesting, (espicially the M&M story) many may not. No Home Depot guy ever captured the attention of a crowd.

    Bios are not always interesting.

    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    No. I don't consider this a milestone. Let those that do offer the "well done, Dan". It's like someone winning the pie eating contest. Most people don't care what people do to extremes. For those that do, that's great for them.

    Now if you found 100 caches in a day and none of them were lamp post/guard rail micros, that would be a milestone worth discussing. LOL!

    Perhaps, but for those of us who have been caching for a while, a FTF is no longer an accomplishment. Since there are dozens of new cachces popping up every day, getting a FTF is very easy to do.

    You make a good point, Dan, but not everyone would agree with you. I suppose it's a difference in perception between people new to geocaching and "old timers" for who geocaching milestones don't have the same significance as they did a few years ago.

    If you like something in your life or think something in your life is interesting, guarenteed there's at least one other person who thinks so too. Your profession may not interest a lot of people, but I hope it interests you, and so it's nice to share, but more importantly there are other aspects to a bio than what you do for work. In your case, you have a great story about weight loss, bonding with your son over geocaching, meeting Nikki, etc etc which are interesting stories that can touch others!

    And Karen is also a kayaking guide and in my opinion an avid biker, these traits are not only interesting to many they may be helpful if someone has questions. So see, there are other interesting things about you other than jobs.

    What life do you save when an endangered animal is eating an endangered plant?
    DNFTT! DNFTT! DNFTT!

    If the animal is endangered ,
    the plant is probabally already gone,

    I'd save Steph by giving Hiram a beer
