Breaking Records and Reaching Milestones

Last weekend was a big geocaching weekend for me. Not only did I find my 800th geocache... I found 105 geocaches in one day. While that may seem like a lot... it's nothing. The two people I went with have found 500+ in one day! And I'm sure they will beat their records when the do the ET at the end of the month.

Sadly I didn't take many pictures. We were constantly hopping in and out of the car, and a lot of the caches were the same. While I know many people aren't fans of numbers runs, I did have a lot of fun. The road trip, company and love of the game make it all worth it! I don't think I have any goals of beating my 105 record though. I was ready to go home around #70 ;-)

All our finds were about two hours away from Tucson. We were in the Scottsdale/Fountain Hills area near Phoenix. Cache to cache we traveled a total of 55.5 miles over 6 hours and 56 minutes.

Most of the caches were right off the side of the road. Some we could see before even getting out of the car, some we had to do some searching. While I enjoyed Saturday, I think that the number runs are much more appealing to me if there is some better scenery. Comparing the "number runs" I've done. I much preferred the Blinky Series in the middle of the desert and the drive up Pinal Peak.

  1. Oh my goodness. I find like 100 caches in a year. 100 in a day... I'm getting dizzy...

    Congratulations!

  2. My best one day total was 49 caches. I write individual logs for every cache I find, so there's no cut and paste for me, and my goal is also 50 words per log entry.

    That would be tough to do for me.
