Thanks everyone! The treasure box which was opened, when I unwrapped a GPSr on Christmas Day in 2005, has given me much more than a few hours of fun. It has allowed me to meet many, new, wonderful friends, participate in some of the most treasured events of some folks lives, see wonderful new places, travel and so much more.
Once I realized some folks had goals of "numbers" mine were actually quite modest. How I have done an average of 500 caches per year is beyond me. Some have been alone but some have been with family and others with friends. Each one has been a treasured memory and/or journey - just some have been better than others.
Now, if I could only learn to stay upright and on my feet! LOL
