Yep, we did it too. Like you SHAOLINWARRIOR, we live in a geocache rich area of the state... our problem is we've cache out all the area around work and home, so a few of the days we had to drive out a bit to find caches. But love the game!

First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.

I completed the 31 Days. Im very fortunate to live in a VERY active GC city. We have some wonderful people that spend so much money, and time placing caches and holding events. They really made this challenge fun. My favs were the Thur night ice cream events.

got it .... day 29 of streak, 26 in August. It helps that I am new at this because there are lots of caches to choose from. Who would have thought one could have so much fun looking for spiders with hidden packages and rooting around trash can at bus stops!

Unfortunately I didn't get started on this Challenge until the 13th with my work schedule being as it was. Since the 13th, though, I have gotten every souvenir, I think I might make it to the end! I have new cache publications delivered to my e-mail so that helps.

I can keep going for a few more days but am quickly running our of nearby caches. I've had several published but that doesn't help me. Today I took 5 little ones out on a 2 mile hike to get a cache. Good exercise but so many short legs don;'t move to fast.

I suppose lucky for me, I haven't cached out my local area yet (it helps that I'm a relatively new cacher). So far the streak is going strong, though a hail storm almost prevented me from getting one today. emoticon

Got all the days so far. Whooooo Hooooooo

ADAPTOR, I try to combine caching w/ traveling. The first week of this challenge I was on a trip. Before I left I went on GC site and put in the destination zip code to ck on caches near my hotel or place of business. I was able to get one ea day after my business, or on way to hotel or dinner area.
You may be pleased to find something unusual to see as well. I found 2 real small parks, with some VERY different structures of interest. Good Luck.

I need 14 days to fill up my August grid so I am working on that. Going on the 3rd for sure for a night cache. Going to Kansas for MINGO on the 10th and 11th...the rest I have to go mostly 15 miles away into the mountains or 40 miles away in another direction.

i certainly hope to! its going to take some careful planning as i, like most cachers, have cleared out the area around my house. ive never maintained a streak before though, and damn but those souvenirs are a great motivator! ive found mine for today - quite close by, actually, i walked the 2 miles. it was one i had dnf'ed in the past, but saw that it had been found recently, so i tried again. lo and behold, there it was - don't know how i missed it the first time!

im really trying to combine my caching with my running - there's this fantastic trail nearby that i haven't completely cached out yet, so i figure i can pick some of them up one by one on the way back to the car.
