    If the photos are not released by Noon on Friday May 28, I will be deleting all of your found logs for the Star Wars series... ;-)

    I think that is probably one of the major reasons both Lee and myself like the multis. We like the risk of not finding one of the stages; one find on a 10 stage multi is more adventuresome to us than 10 'guaranteed' finds. To each his own here, but I will still maintain the comparable multi will more often than not create more memories - But less smileys!

    This whole multi discussion actually brings up another thought. If a person were only able to hide one a year, there might be more multis because a hider could have several hides that way; a loophole of sorts. But if all or most hid multis for that reason, people probably would lose interest. Variety is key.
    When Iampaw, Martes, HockeyMom and I did "The Agonizer" last fall, we never did find the next to last stage but we still found the final.... we are smart like that ;-)

    I didn't see this discussion yesterday. So here's my 2 cents worth.

    First, lexmano is the antithesis of Joe Bornstein. If you see Ed on TV it will be about caching. By the way, Ed's done 46 of the 48 lower states which is no small achievement.

    Two of my most favorite caches have to be Battleship and The Lair of Serious Tool. But now I will add Bruce's Micro in the Woods. Not everybody would ever agree but these are three different caches that reflect three different personalities. If you've done all of them then you'll understand my comment.

    The power runs are not always about the numbers but can be. There are a lot of logs about the fun of being with fellow cachers for these "series" type caches. There's no denying that if you are about 60 caches from a major milestone, a day chasing these caches will get you where you need to be. I think it's disingenuous to deny feeling a level of satisfaction when you hit the bigger milestones and a milestone is a reflection of hitting a NUMBER so the count if undeniably part of the game.

    And this thread now has more twists than any multi I've done!
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    The only issue I take here is a group should be able to have fun finding any cache(s). I was part of a large group that went and found 3 caches on Monhegan which was fun. Lee and I went with the pjprebs to Gulf Hagus and had a great time. And then there is the recent trip to Halfmile. I'm assuming if a bunch of us hopped in a bus and drove to Madawaska and found one cache which was the lamest GRC possible we'd still have a good time. A few times a bunch of us local cachers have met up at a local restaurant for dinner (no finds involved) and had a good time. It's not the series caches that create the fun, it is the cachers.

    And if 1000 means more to a given cacher than 999 or 437 or 162 than that is fine for them. For me, every cache is a milestone of some sort, the major ones are the caches which challenge me - physically or mentally. When I get to the peak of a tough climb or locate a tricky hide and get that feeling of accomplishment - that's one of my major milestones. Sometimes they come one after the other, sometimes they take many finds. I'm often lousy with analogies, but let's compare it to Rick's trek. 2,178 miles. One person could easily claim each 100 miles is a milestone, another person may use individual mountain peaks, another may use the shelters as milestones. When I take a trip out of state I don't watch the odometer and speak out 100 miles! 200 miles! 300 miles! as we pass by, instead I note state lines.

    I'd be game for making that - I love to make ice cream and have a freeze (cept it's a hand crank one).

    My Lexmano-Boreinstein crack was me being facietious. Nothing more nothing less. And I am sure that Ed knows it...

    And Dan, thank you for your compliment on my Lair of Serious Tool cache :-)
