No, kidding! What a letdown. I'm very disappointed in him. Mad

No, we're only aspiring cachers. But my wife thinks I am ready for a 12 step program.

We were just having fun BTW.

But I do ask the question.. when you're at 93, why wouldn't you attempt to find 8 more??

You ever cached until you felt like dropping, or until you felt like death was just around the corner? I know for me I've gone until I didn't care if my GPS suddenly exploded requiring me to stop.

Maybe I'm ready for the 12-step program too?

This begs the question (which probably should have its own thread spun off if it generates responses): What's your highest one-day total? I'd have to check, but I think mine is around 15. Pretty wimpy.

If you tell your wife you were out drinking to cover up your caching you may have a caching problem.

I dream of such adventures. But inevitably, I always have to be home before I am able to maximize every minute of a good caching day.

My top caching day is 41. My second best is 37. I think I've had one other day in the 30's and dozens of days in the 20's. On the day with 37, I was actually attempting to break the 41 in a day record but I lost my focus while trying to attain county parks (some challenge or somethin).

I know I can easily break the 41 in a day mark with the correct cache dense area and if the wife is out of town. I plan on doing that in March or April once the snow is gone. Two different bike trail routes in Wisconsin, similar to those that Bobcam did in TX, though not as long.
