Thanks. It was cold day (mid-20's), but not really any wind. So, not bad. Glad to be able to make it an OCUS cache and finally give rob3k finds on three of his caches.

On the way home from GeoWoodstock IX, I made a detour to make bpratt's A rose is a rose is a.... my 2800th geocache - 2580 Groundspeak, 156 TerraCaching, 46 OpenCachingUS, and 18 Navicache. This was exactly 1 month after my 2700th find.

It is crosslisted on GC.com, but I was sure to log the OCUS listing as the milestone and posted my log as a note on GC.com. It was a fun cache and would recommend it, if you're in the area.

I found 11 OCUS caches, during my GW9 weekend, btw - almost 1/4 of my total OCUS finds.

Call your OCUS milestones in to Podcacher Podcast. Every week, they read letters or play voice mails from listeners and there's no law stating that it has to be from geocaching.com only. I usually listen to the new shows on Monday mornings on my commute to work.

Listen to shows and see links to show notes at http://podcacher.com
Call them at 206-A-CACHER or email them at podcacher@gmail.com

Just noticed I hit a sort of milestone this past Saturday. I now have exactly 250 non-gc.com cache finds.

170 TerraCaching + 53 OpenCachingUS + 27 Navicache.

I'm hoping to hit 300 by the end of the year.

I recently hit 3000 finds. I'm just a bit confused when.

First I thought is was Who's Buried in Grant's Tomb-James Buchanan? (TCD4Z) on Columbus Day (10 Oct), but then when I got home and was catching up on my logging from the weekend, I noticed that I seemed to only have 27 Navicache finds, not the 28 I'd thought I had. This was per both my NC stat banner and my profile page. I thought it was wrong, so I manually counted my Found longs on the NC profile page and came up with 27.

Urgh!

So, I figured I must have just been wrong. It was OK, though, since cycleangela published 2 new OCUS multi's near home I could go after this past Saturday (15 Oct). I even called Podcacher and retracted my previous milestone voicemail and called in a new one, when I found MPEA - Connecting the Trails (OU0353).

Since then, I have confirmed that I did have 27 Navicache finds BEFORE I logged Mile Marker 45 - Shire Town Frederick (N02541) on Sunday, 9 October. However, I don't know why my NC stat banner does show 28 (as of the last couple days), but my Navicache profile page still claims I only have 27. Only thing that makes sense is that the stat banner (which can lag behind) finally updated late last week, just before some NC cache owner deleted a previous find of mine. I'm trying to check with PCMedic and Scout to see if there is anyway they might be able to help me figure out which NC cache find I'm missing.

Sometimes folks tell me that one reason they don't mess with the "alternative" sites is that it would be too hard to keep track of. I guess I'm getting little bit of that now.

I believe I now have....

2738 GC.com
0174 TerraCaching.com
0060 OpenCaching.US
0028 Navicache.com (or 27)
0003 GPSgames.org
3003 TOTAL FINDS

Find #1000 - and it was a OCNA cache by DudleyGrunt - and we were FTF! Doesn't get much better than that. http://www.opencaching.us/viewcache.php?cacheid=683

Congrats! Great for it to be on OCNA and glad it could be one of mine. Sorry the museum wasn't open.

I'm also the first here to find 10 OCUS caches. Who'll be the first join / pass me?


How many of those are OC exclusive? I think the novelty of this site for me is as an alternative - not to find preexisting GC caches. Just me - I've found my first and I hope to find many more OC exclusives! So far so good!
