I go at it all year long. My best month usually is February but that is because we take a weeks vacation and head to Maryland (thats where I am right now) and usually the weather is a bit easier there than home or Maine. I have logged 189 caches since the first of the year and that I think is a bit below normal for me but then again I am getting a bit older.
FTF's? I still do them and still enjoy the thrill of being the first person there to find the cache just the way the owner intended it to be.
I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!
