I was surprised finding a couple of FTF's today VIA E-MAIL notification. IN THE DAY. Rolling Eyes SurferJoe would do his thing, and then came early evening everyone would be notified via e-mail and regularly met at GZ for a surprise group find and FTF party! Now its phone apps 24/7 for one or two finders able to make the FTF within minutes of publishing prior to others making the attempt. Sad

If you're not first, you're last. That's the FTF game. Cool If you can't get there first you need to change your methods. Those FTF parties were fun though.

I remember that! 2009, FreiGuy and mnfishnutz and I were competing over the Plymouth/Maple Grove publishes. We'd sit around at 5-5:30 pm or so waiting for emails to come in saying "Surfer Joe published..." and just hoped it said either "... .05 miles from your home coordinates" or at least" miles WEST of your home coordinates." Very Happy
