Today marks my 50th geocache find. I know it's not a huge number considering the fact that I started 7 months ago. But starting a new outdoor hobby at the same time as having a young baby and winter soon after that can slow one down.
I know that other geocachers tend to pick a memorable cache to do for their milestones. Mine? It was just a step up from a park and grab near a carpool parking lot (GCPD8T). I chose this cache because it was hidden by a cacher in Ontario with the 2nd most finds:
I figured what better way to mark s small numbers milestone than by finding a cache hidden by someone lits TONS of them. Who knows, maybe some of the geocaching skills will transfer on to me. I know I know! But a man can dream!
On my way to making my 50th find I placed my first hide. I just filled out the submission form. So check back and I'll update this post when it's approved. It's nothing fancy. Just a quick P&G (park & grab). But I thought the location was interesting.
In the next few months I plan to place many more caches. As a matter of fact, I'm currently planning a series of caches. So stay tuned to my blog posts with the geocaching label.
My first hide has now been published. It's called 'Telemarketing' because there is a phone booth (a rarity these days) with all sorts of advertising stickers all over the doors. Sadly it only has 1 find so far. Around here once the FTF frenzy has cooled off people take their time to grab a new hide. I think the D1/T1 rating puts people off too. I might bump the difficulty up to a 1.5.
