In just under 17 months of caching I managed to get 500 caches! Beanie
I'm proud of myself because over 350 of those caches were done without a car, by going either on foot or public transit. And the other 150 were in cars with other cachers in a group. Yay carbon reduction!
Also 350+ of the caches were done with a 9 year old Garmin Etrex 12channel GPSr that doesn't work under tree cover and gets horrible accuracy when it rains....

Now to try and get to 731(extra day, leap year) by April 8th so I can average 1 a day for two years. Very Happy
