That is absolutely amazing. It doesn't seem that long ago that there were only 5000 in the state. I know there are some that remember when there were only a handful in the state... To publish 10,000 in two years is hard to imagine.

If that isn't enough, also keep in mind all of the emails outside of approved caches he needs to deal with, the caches that require time that go unapproved for whatever reason, his followups on so many disabled caches, etc, etc.

SJ,
I'm sure you didn't start this thread just to receive thanks and congratulations but you are deserving of both.

Thanks Surfer Joe. Your dedication to the sport is well documented. We are lucky to have you. 10,000 is a might number.
