I still have my old Delorme maps. You were close on the technique. I wrote the GC# (Minus the "GC" - had that figured out long before the boys at GSAK) in ink and then ran a highlighter over the caches as I found them. All of the waypoints were placed with precision, I compared them using USAPhotomaps. Usually I updated the book once a week, some weeks were crazy with 10 or 15 new caches so I had to do it twice a week. Ah, the good 'ol days.

Man, look at that cache density! I bet you could get 10 in 1 day if you pushed it
With a run like the SMR, I can't imagine it'll be long before a Bi-Centrum Challange shows up. It's hard to believe that now someone who has never cached before or is just starting out could go out and hit the 100 cache milestone as well as wrap up two major challenges in one day. I just feel a little sorry for the folks in the southern part of the state who have to travel so far to hit it.

Maine Geocache Hider Timeline (Yet another odd use macro) which lists all Maine cache hiders by join date. For a reference on that list, D&I Joined on Sept 28th, 2002 - the same day GC72EA was placed.
Heh, I was just thinking I could make the macro list the caches that were placed on the day each cacher joined.

It isn't me I promise!!!!
The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.
