Fifty-seven

Sorry it's a long post with a ton of pictures, bear with me

It was just a couple of months ago when I broke my record for most geocaches in a day. 42 caches seemed like a lot, and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to break that record... but I did on Saturday!

KennyV and I headed up to Globe, Arizona and then up Pinal Peak for our geocaching adventure. We spent 13 hours and 40 minutes covering 254miles. Along the way we picked up 57 caches and reach an altitude of 7840 ft.

About 2/3 of the way up the mountain Just Hike(@JustHike) and skraeling(@sbrews) caught up to us. It was nice to see some other cachers along the way. We took turns leading the way, and continued to cache our way to the top.

Another great day of caching and another record broken!

    The pics are awesome and the number of caches that you found in one day took me my first five months to get, lol! Love it!

  8. WOW and double WOW. I think I am doing good if I get 3 in a day lol.
    We managed a couple in Vancouver when we were there a couple of weeks ago, so I was chuffed at that as it was a first for me outside the UK. Very Very well done Erica and thank you for the lovely comments on my blog.
