Ok, I didn't "take the bet" but I sure took a shot at it today. Wink KB, you need to update your odds. I got skunked on this one too. Mad At least I don't feel too bad about missing this one, except I was looking in the day light.

23 caches visited, 16-found, 7-DNF's, and only 2-FTF's that Arcticabn was all over the place, and seemed to be about 12-hours ahead of me. Guess I should not have slept Shocked

I wouldn't worry about FTFs anyway, let em burn their gas less efficiently in the rush Wink

I'm waiting for the Rochester breakfast buddies, by then I'll see how long it's taken people to do the series and see if it can be done in the timeframe afterwards.

FTF's were not my objective of the day. As KB laid out the gautlent and the odds to find a particular cache along a road I used to frequent south of I-90 I figured what the heck. This was a beautiful day to be out caching, and once I got off the interstate and hung on the two lane roads, it was even better. Interesting things to be seen in the small towns. LeRoy looked closed up, until I got to a church on one end of town, cars and Harley's all over. Harleys all decorated up and really pretty girls in bridesmaids dresses standing out front, looks like all 900 turned out for the day.

Hey KB, I see there are several new caches right where you said they would be. Now all I have to do is come up with the time to chase around down there. Get to Albert Lea to visit the In-Laws, but usually have a car full of people that think I am nuts to run around in the woods, and getting them to stop for a cache chase is tougher than just about anything.

KB's post looks like stacked up Cookie tins.

Sometime before July, I'll be back down there, doubling the amount of caches on Route 56, and camping in Adams. HEH

KB that sounds great, I have to get back that way to find those I missed, this will give me a good reason for the road trip.
