The last thing I stated in the last blog was - I will let y'all know when we pass the mark!!! Well, we are now at 8013.
We started out on April 19 with the 3rd Tuesday event in Portsmouth. My son was a guest speaker and had a great presentation with loads of information about all sorts of pests, bugs, plants, and reptiles we all run into while geocaching. #7990
Our next find was a quick grab here in Suffolk as we needed a cache on April 22. #7991
Next was a CITO event and a cache at the same location on the 23rd. Cameramoose held a really nice event, had a good turnout and cleaned up a cemetery in South Norfolk. #7992 and 7993.
Sunday the 24th we teamed up with jtmlam59 (Jim and Lynne) and managed to knock out 19 caches which took us past the 8000 mark!!!
It was a nice day and we cached in and around the south-side of Hampton Roads. Not only did we pass 8000 finds but Jim & Lynne actually surpassed the 10,900 found mark as well.
The winner of the "COVETED" SNAP!!! Cache of the Day Award was steve-n-kim with their cache "Swirly" (GC68RXX). Oh, and by the way, the answer is clock-wise!
Our 8000th cache was not planned out to be a particular one. We let fate determine which one it was and made up a list - used a program to figure the shortest route between all the caches on the list, and then our 8000th find just happened to be Park n' Play (GC5WMD3) owned by 22track. Thanks for the hide!!!
Till next time!!!
Stay Safe & Keep Caching!!!
