Continuing the saga, Bobcam is on vacation in Texas this week. Take a look at what he bit off to chew on:

Zoom out about 4 or 5 clicks:

That's sweet! I am headed to TX for two weeks in July. You just help me plan one of my day trips. If you make it there, you HAVE to go to W's home town of Crawford and visit Tonkawa Falls Park. Bring your swimsuit and a picnic lunch. It's a hidden gem.

Razz Check out this email that I got from him last night (it doesn't mention that he found 50 on his drive down there!)

Quote:
Had a GREAT time today. Met up with a couple of "Good Old Boys" early on and we tackled the trail on our bikes. Just finished my logs this morning. Ended up with 87 finds, not too bad but hoping to surpass that today. Grabbed 65 or so on the trail yesterday and planning on finding the rest today. That trail is unforgiving, pretty wild.


Yeah, he's a maniac. No question about it.

I think that train already left the station.

The pace Bobcam is at per day, is pretty incredible. An average of 13.3 everyday. At this pace, he would pass up Arcticabn around May of 2009.

Looks like he might have that top spot locked up today...

I think you can make that "will have", unless Artic is out caching his ass off today! Laughing

I'm still a recovering cripple. Can't wait for him to pass me although. Youth, speed, availability of time all are on his side.

He already knows I support him on his quest.

Actually, there's a lot more to your gracious reply there, Dave. When you got most of your numbers, there wasn't the cache concentration that there is today.

Here's what he hit yesterday (zoom out a click or two) : http://www.geocaching.com/map/default.aspx?lat=32.925433&lng=-96.489617 not to mention the infamous Chapparal Trail that he hit on the weekend.

I'm also guessing (but haven't verified) that your T & D averages would generally be higher... maybe even much higher.

All of that said... he did get the #1 slot at about 10:30 this morning, and my hat is off to him... he worked extremely hard for it.

Well density doesn't have a thing to do with it. If anything, I should have what he has plus 4 years more. He has had an awesome run and is moving at an unbelievable pace. I've been on top of this pole since March 2006. Time for me to step aside.

I'm still caching but life has overcome my caching career.

Life catches up to all of us eventually.

He's logging as I type (9:10 PM). He was 3 caches out of first two minutes ago. Now he's two back.
