Actually Dan I am not out on the trail tonight. It was a very long traffic jam filled trip home from Maryland and watching the Grand Kids and caching. I did two on the way out of Maryland to bring the total to 4998. I plan on doing the other two sometime tomorrow afternoon.
Needless to say it has been a fun filled ride with many memories. The greatest part of it surely is the people I have met along the way. Even with the bumps in the road along the way it has been a great experience.
The many friends made here in Maine is a memory that will long remain with me.
As for the numbers, well, they are a part of the whole experience, but on a whole the numbers are meaningless without the people they represent along the way.
Thanks Dan (one of my many geo-friends!) for your kind words.
I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!
