    Default Did you hear! Hollora went over the 2k mark....

    I was with Hollora today as she finally topped that 2000 cache find milestone. The did it on a nice hike out there in the woods. The 2001 cache Pocomoonshine Package (GC1785) by Will, Brian and Betty (1.5/2). Glad I have joined you on more than a few hunts. And good news!! She only fell once.(OK twice, but I didn't see one of them) Way to go LA!!!
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Congratulations. LA, We're happy to be included in some of the memories you have found while caching. Until the next find.

    Sheesh! i needed that one for the 2001 cache too!

    We tried to call you earlier for a "phone a friend" but over there you probably didn't have too much cell service...

    grats on the milestone!!!
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Congratulations Lois-Ann! I knew 2K was just around the corner and here it is. You're an absolute joy to attend events with and all of your efforts that you do for the cacher's community are so appreciated.

    So......and you knew this was coming......you've done TWO THOUSAND caches! Which one was your favorite?
    Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.

    Yes, I knew the question was coming and I started this answer once and the mystery computer God closed my browser so I hope I can recover some of my thoughts. The list was long.

    Hard to pick just one favorite - so here goes (in no particular order): Today at Pocomoonshine Package (thanks Mainiac1957!); caching with my son for #500 on Bald Mountain; with Macfriends on Mt. A for #700; Geowoodstock 5 in NC (caching with the gang from ME at night); caching around Flaggstaff Lake with Francis Family and Ms Amara this fall (and kayakingloon - thanks for the vision with Team Richards to do the Useless Event - and get us up there caching!); a day on Monhegan Island with bgrffjake and becket (miss the TGIF days guys); finishing the Maine DeLorme Challenge with Cache Maine (miss caching with you Cameo - OMG Aroostook County in the rain!!!!??!!); my first find - The Pound in Orrington (thanks Parmachenee); going to Islesford - caching the island and then kayaking over to Warren Island for a weekend camping event: caching on VinalHaven Island with wellsuh and doing all the caches on the island (not just the one at the Ferry Terminal) and loosing my PDA on a trail (no Team2Hunt doesn't have that as a solo trait) - thankfully not far in; the Night cache by Zoltarus in University Forest (that is awesome - loved it!); caching in Quebec City during the Mega Event and going to Morancy Falls for the International Fire Works Shoot; caching in Alaska this past summer and many more.

    I feel good about - if get me to the area, I will probably remember it, even after 2000 finds. From Coos Canyon, Thank A Teacher......and the list goes on and on, there really are few caches I haven't enjoyed (some may have frustrated me - but we came out ok in the end).

    If there was a memorable guard rail cache, it would be one of Mapachi's at one of his places where the view is awesome but folks just usually speed by (yes, IMHO some GRC can be memorable). Many of these I have taken and posted photos.

    Last but not least - my favorite, very favorite part of the sport - is the great friends and people I have met through Geocaching. Geocaching entered my life just before Ralph and I had a life changing event happen. It was this sport, addiction, hobby - whatever you choose to call it, which got me through a very difficult time in my life. It was something which my adult children could enbrace and we have never looked back. Still having fun.

    Thank you all for your support. I hope my little list might temp some of you, if you haven't done something I mentioned to perhaps consider it. I am always willing to talk cache - so just ask.

    Cache on - cache happy and thank you all for your well wishes.

    Awesome! I was going to break 800 today, but I'm down with the flu. Sigh.

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    When we spoke on the phone today I had no idea you were about to make the big leap. Salute!! Way to go, Lady, that's pretty cool.
