2015 was a pretty weak year for Pam & I as I spent a lot of the year building my stamina back up after my sicknesses in 2014.
|January 2015 West Virginia Earthcache|
We did manage to found just over caches during the year which is a very low number compared to other years for us but we did have a few major accomplishments. We attended 2015's Geowoodstock and then took a major geocaching trip up through New England and picked up quite a few of geocaches that had been on our "must do" list for quite some time.
|March 2015 muggles!|
We were a sponsor for GCHRs Annual picnic and had fun greeting everyone who visited our booth at the picnic.

So, enough of the small talk, let's get to the main reason for this blog. In our second year of caching, while traveling back to Suffolk from a day of caching, we would talk about the best cache of day. It didn't take long for this to develop into The "COVETED" SNAP!!! Cache of the Day Award.
|Papa got caught in a geocache at Geowoodstock|
The idea of a Cache of the year came to us in 2011. We took each of the winners of the Cache of the Day and laid them all out and eventually came down to 3 or 4 best of the year.

In 2011 we took a trip to Pennsylvania and visited GC59AF: Thousand Steps Cache. To this day both Pam & I think of it as our best cache ever and it was named the 1st SNAP!!! Cache of the Year.
|We are in this picture somewhere!|
The 2012 winner was in Smithfield, VA, GC3PTB0: Smithfield's Porcine Parade.
