Frox, Fribble, and I set off on a quest to find 57 caches today. We left the house at 6AM, fueled up on 24 oz coffees and a dozen Krispy Kremes at the Holiday, then hit the caches. Froz forgot his boots so he had to cache in sneakers all day. We hit a couple of hard caches at Slippery Cliff and Weird Story, but most of the caches we hit were in nondescript parks with short descriptions, because honestly we didn't have time to read any caches with long descriptions or do any multicaches. In fact, those parks might not have been nondescript at all, we really didn't even look around. We really appreciate this cache, the 32nd one we found today, because without it we could not have found 57 caches in 8 hours. At the end of the day, we had found 57 caches with 1 DNF. On the way home, we stopped off at a great local watering hole and logged all the caches while we relaxed and wound down

Better than 32 of 57, no?


Bravo,......author, author, clap, clap, clap

I still believe that my comment holds water. The uninventive cache owners are at just as much fault as the uninventive cachers.

It all depends.


sounds like both of my caches!!! I told you I'm going to archive that one!!!

i have topped myself. in submitting my log of epic proportions for the following cache:
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=3a5e5524-67bc-4579-b4a0-cee23595c950
i was told i exceeded the 4,000 character limit for a log. that's a first for me. so i cut about half of the log and submitted it as a note.

LOL, as the owner of that cache, let me tell you, the epic log of logs that hardware posted made my week! I *really* appreciate you taking the time to do that, it's a great story and I'm glad you had fun despite the mosquitos, darkness, and other setbacks. Thanks for sticking with it!

In regards to this thread, as great as hardware's log is, I also really liked the following short entry, which also brought a smile to my face:

May 21 by Ko-tis-vey (283 found)
Well OK I found it after 3 visits, lots of tantrums and a little pouting. Very well done.I'm soooo glad to have this one OFF my to-do list. took an unactivated Geocoin. Left "Daredevil" TB

OK, so I'm pr'bly biased, what can I say? Wink

knowing it took a more experienced geocacher 3 visits to accomplish something i managed to do in one night, in the dark, warmed my heart a bit. how i managed to avoid the list of first-time strike out victims is beyond me. as i mentioned in my post, the geo-gods were smiling upon me.

Ko-tis-vey has the gift of being able to convey his entiire expereince in a minimum of words, and if you meet him on the trail, he's a really nice fellow as well.

As far as hardware's log goes, well, I just had to read the whole thing a couple of times. Even though I was dying to log L. Mtka Leech.

You make numbers by your finds. You make your reputation by your logs.

I think it just depends on the cache & the time I have at the cache. Usually, my actual log in the log book will be a little shorter compared to the online log. I think a lot has to do with space, neatness, etc. The fact that I can type a lot faster than I can write long hand I am sure has a lot to do with it too.

Cache on....

I've been meaning to do this for awhile...

You can now read "recent" logs in semi-reverse cronological order:

Some Recent Log Entries

These are updated sporadically (about one per day), and come from about 1000 caches near the Twin Cities and some locationless. There is no guarantee that all logs will appear here. Still, its a nice mix of whats going on out there. Good for reading during dead time at work.

SB will appreciate that there are no logos on the page, so he doesn't need to panic when the boss comes by.

There is also a link to this page from http://mngca.rkkda.com

It's fun to read the new logs of caches I have found before. I've always done it, but it was always hit-or-miss whether there is a new log. This is a great addition to http://mngca.rkkda.com

I love Rouster's logs:

"Rouster"

They're one of my favorites, and I'm not joking.

Rouster!

One of my own most favorite logs was at team-deadhead's 12 Cats and it pays hommage to two prominent local cachers (Moe the Sleaze and Rouster!)

Hey, "I resemble that joke"!

What did you expect when you cache in Wright County, or Sherburne, or Anoka...
