Sounds like a wonderful day! 1500 is awesome, I only just passed over 400. Way to go.

We went to an event today and there were over 100 new caches including night caches. We did 3 series...one was 24, one was 5, and one was 7 plus we got 1 other one and the event. 1 more cache will put me at 1500. Yee ha!

Eat, pray, love, geocache...

I have got to try a night cache sometime. Seems like it would be a great challenge.

A bunch of us got together and did a night cache tonight. I actually did it twice with two groups. It was a blast!

Got to do my first ever multi-cache today. It was a blast. It had a whole story line with each cache telling a little more of the story and then we would have to make a decision. Based on our decision we would get the next set of coordinates to go towards. The story line was about the Zombie Apocalypse. Sadly, on the 5th cache I became a zombie! But it was a ton of fun and generated some very interesting discussions.

found nine new caches today, moved one geocoin along, and introduced a new person to the hobby. All and all good day.

No...I got tripped at work. Hit the cement with my right knee, right hip, right hand and wrenched my shoulder. Taking pain meds and no lifting for a week. There went 2 more days of no caching but i did get Missing Trestle 1...he had to replace it. I need one sun-tues-wed. Tues I go to Cruces to the dr. so that should be good.

How you doing?

Had a nice hike this morning. There was a new cache off of Baylor Canyon Rd just on the other side of the Cruces pass. Tried for FTF but it looks like birddroppings beat me to it just this morning. Wish I would have got there a bit earlier, I'd have liked to met him. No FTF but still got 7 caches.

My knee isn't bad...it was my legs from the knees up and my right big toe...LOL...at least I can get out of the recliner now....that must be what doing 100 squats feels like....I need to get out and get some maintenance done...haven't cached since that day either. Oh well...next year will be the big goal to finish that grid. My right shoulder is still a bit sore. How about you?

Remember that maze box you were talking about yesterday? Elsey (Thaddaeus) showed up to work this morning with it. His first words were "Look at this amazing cache container I found online".
Oh, and I'm still picking cactus spines out of myself from yesterday. Thanks for the hike!

Oh good, sparky is coming too! Always good with more company! I'll gas up and load the step in the truck today so I don't forget it. Cynthia and the kids had to have it until they got used to climbing into their seats, and I bring it camping to make it easier to unload gear, lol.

Sure I could drive. How close do you want to get to the canyon mouth? If we park at the powerline trail I can bring the van... lots of room, but a farther walk. If you want to park as close as possible I can bring the cachemobile... it's a Suburban so lots of room again, though I may have to bring you a step stool. So 0800 on Sunday right?
Approach from the S huh? I was looking at the satellite and NE looked like an ok approach, but the satellite and the ground view don't always look the same once you get there and I've been known to take the wrong/difficult way.
Looking forward to the trip!

We could go like 8 am....dogs are fine...how much room do you have? Sparky is not sure if he wants to go but could you drive? I know Necki said it's easiest from the south....

I hope you get FTF on my new one....you can either do it on the way out or the way back....

when in doubt look for the pipe on the south side of the "trail" to get down to the wash....mine is before you ever go down to the wash.

let me know....I can use that one for my 10 year grid :)

Kimmie: I'd like to do more each day, but I'm trying to limit myself to just one a day during the week to try and fill up my calendar for 365-days... unfortunately I've missed yesterday and today :( so it looks like a year from now till I do that one. My plan is to try and knock out more on the weekends, or a few harder ones that I can't get to on work days.

Val: Sure thing. I see you have another cache on the way out to San Andres, the wife and I will probably knock those two out Saturday... how early do you get up, I'd be willing to grab Off The Beaten Path with you on Sunday morning... if you can make it that day do you mind if the dog tags along?
I had thought about asking if you wanted company on your San Andres hike the other day, but ended up being unable to make any runs at all that day.

I decided yesterday I was going to see just how many caches I pass on my way to and from work. There are 38 different ones for me to hit so yesterday I made 4 park and grabs and in one of them I came across my first trackable which was a Geocoin. I swapped it with my own travel bug :) One of my coworkers said I'm addicted and I replied with why yes I am! I also told him that Geocaching is like eating cookies...you can't have just one. lol

I hope everyone is having a good day!

Started working on the new Sherlock Holmes cache by Sexyboo. Found the complete story and made some notes. Took a guess at the coords but I am just clueless as to how to apply facts from the story to get the coords.

Wanna help???

Going to the Bosque event on Feb 23rd.

I had high hopes for the weekend... a FTF still waiting up in the hills and a canyon multi-cache run I've been wanting to do. Didn't get to make either run :(. Soon though... hopefully. Grats on the successful runs!

I went out GeoCaching both Saturday & Sunday this weekend and had a pretty successful weekend. Saturday we set out for 6 and found 4. Sunday we didn't really have a game plan but we hit 11 and found 10. I also found my first 2 Path Tags which was pretty cool.

I might go do San Andres after work wed. It's a mile hike in and a mile out once you get to Frenchy's Wall.

Laborcita Canyon to Fresnal Canyon Rd. The water crossing between Steep Hill road and the trail head wasn't too deep, made it across in the van but wouldn't want it any deeper. Continued on up to High Rolls on the way out, roads were clear.

Got our 300th cache today! I wanted to get the FTF on "Home Sweet Home #3" for #300, but wasn't going to be able to make it up there today, so we took the dog for a walk and grabbed another.

I figured out how to update the profile thing after I saw the link in your last message... now I just have to wait 3 days for the pocket query to unlock to update the FTF's (I have 5 so far).

I just found what has to be your house yesterday too... I was on the way home and as I was crossing Florida, I remembered I wanted to try Alley Cat again. When I tried to take a shortcut to turning around, I saw your tracker and a yard full of armadillos. Finally got Alley Cat btw!

Yes, we're premium members. Poked around a bit in the profile thing... that where you just type about yourself? Haven't really used the pocket query thing much. I'm the computer illiterate one in the family.

yes, on your personal profile....if you scroll all the way down to the bottom of your page it will say edit your geocaching.com profile. i forget are you a premium member? it uses your my finds pocket query and then after you create it you update it on geocaching .com...

Didn't think I was going to get my cache for the day... wife got tired of hiking on the way to the planned cache so we cut it short and headed home. Managed to make it back out just as the sun was setting and grab a quick park-n-grab to fill in an empty spot. Dog is doing well after the coyote trap!

Well, an eventful day for us... Took the kids, wife and mother-in-law out for a nice easy hike north of Dog Canyon on the Power Walk trail. Soon discovered that the area had been set with leg traps when my dog stepped in one. Nothing like listening to a dog howling in your ear and kids screaming and wife yelling while you pry one of these babys off. Surprisingly enough, it didn't break his leg, just cut it a bit... needless to say we cut our caching trip short... and that guy is missing a trap. Got him cleaned up and bandaged, we'll see how he is doing later.

Yeah, I called one of the guys and he said the CO probably messed up the logs when he replaced them all. He told me to go by what the gps and website said. It worked out so I guess that's the way to do it. Going to go back on Jan 19th to finish them.

We found about half of the Heroes series. The problem being what cache my GPS said it was did not match the log sheet inside the cache....made it very confusing....but I should have hit my 1000 and got more than my best day of 40....and we found the fun way out thru the tunnel under the highway by accident too!

I called the wife and had her drop off a TB I had in the van at a TB Hotel near the AZ border. She felt bad enough for leaving me without a vehicle that she did it for me. That got my cache for the day. I'll have to check out the Pupfish one... hopefully I can do it without having to look up boring stats with your hint!

Uuuugh... no cache success today. Wife and her mother went to Arizona to pick up step-son, youngest daughter at friend's house, oldest daughter at work... I'm by myself today, time to go get some caches done! Wait a minute... wife took the van with my keys... the keys to the van and the cachemobile are on that ring! Ah, well, I still have the wife's car, I can get some non-off road ones... where are those keys? Oh, they are in the wife's purse... on the way to Arizona. I am now stuck here at the house with two vehicles outside that I can't use and I don't really feel like hiking around town after my seven mile caching hike yesterday... sigh.

Just checked, it's still not out. We got the four around the bark park area except for the Pupfish one. I don't really follow sports and am dreading having to look up stats to get that one figured out. Don't think I can pull my fat belly out for a cache tonight, cooked up a prime rib roast... mmm, it was good.

If you have good tires you'll be okay on that road...mr LIABOK could drive all the way back to where the cache is and you only have to walk about 80 feet. my Tracker doesn't have snow tires...lol...the ice is what got me. sure wish he's publish yours today....there used to be a cache near the bark park....you didn't find a fake log there did you? It was so old it had to have been archived. I meant to go back and pick the log up but I never did.

hmmmmmmmmmm...i think when i found it it was on the side of the crosspiece facing south too so you had to be facing north to see it and only like the 2nd one from the dirt.

Eat, pray, love, geocache...

Yep, I went over the underside of the stairs clear back to the dirt and forward to where the ditch dropped off to where I couldn't see up on the ledges. Had a 120 lumen flashlight, it was pretty bright under there, had to turn it off when cars would go by so as not to attract attention.
