Tonight, I found my 6000th cache. Keep Going… is very close to my home. I wanted the milestone cache to be a hiking cache, so it was a good pick. Since it was very warm this afternoon, I waited until the sun set and then made the short half-mile hike from the trailhead to the cache.
Find #5000 was on October 10, 2009. Since #5000, I had my best single day of finds–105 on January 2nd–and my best single month–January, with 280 finds. The farthest cache that I found in these thousand was Sit’in On Top of the World Earthcache GCQ7YR in Costa Rica–2728 miles away–and the closest find to home was Learning Process–.38 miles away.
The thousand included finds in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Washington, D. C., Maryland, and Virginia, as well as the two finds in Costa Rica. Some of the DC caches were found during the record-breaking snow storm in February. Also included were the only 2 Event Caches that I’ve attended.
Geocaching has taken me to some very nice places. I hope that will continue for the next one thousand finds.
Here are the stats:
