That will me be doing my part for 101010. There is an event at the end of the month. I wonder if I can get to 899 before then?

No one tries to make you feel that way it’s just a reaction to all the talk of number of finds.

I never cared one jot about “the numbers” until I started going to events, and met all these people with thousands of finds under their belts….for the first time ever I felt the need to prove I was serious about the hobby and figured that meant I needed to do some of these big series and increase my find count. But you know what? I really didn’t enjoy those 14 average caches in a circular trail around some farmer’s fields anywhere NEAR as much as I enjoy one amazing cache at the end of a decent hike in a fascinating place.

So I’ve gone back to considering one great cache found in a weekend to be a success, and couldn’t be happier :)

We’ve been caching nearly 3 years now and are up to the lofty heights of 179 finds. But I can live with that :)

Enjoy!

Sarah
