Congratulations! Those take time and determination to finish. They are also a lot of fun.

I have done both the Missouri and Kansas. I have also done the Kansas 105 (finding a cache in every county of KS) and very close to finishing the MO county challenge.

This last year I have been caching while riding an adventure bike. Because of that my finds have dropped but I have been enjoying the experiance a lot more.

You can check out some of my caching rides here: http://picasaweb.google.com/ajayhawkfan.

Believe it or not, but I just found out about geocaching this week. Yesterday a friend and I found 3 caches in 30 deg sunny weather. Had a good time. I ordered a hand help for further fun.

I would like to get in to it a bit, then spam my job a little bit.

Just back from Prudhoe Bay, IMO it was really worth the trip, AK is a beautiful place & you need lots of time to take it all in. I'm looking forward to returning & exploring some places i didn't have time to ride.RIP Ron Melton

My buddy and I have been geocaching for several years now. Our job requires that we travel several months out of the year so we get to hunt all over the country.

2 years ago we decided to design our own coins. Our first one was the Skullduggery coin:



Last year we came out with the Roulette coin:



This one was cool because it came to a point on the back so you could spin it just like a real roulette table.

Our latest coin is the Sprocket coin. We did it in three colors, orange, blue, and green:









I have several of the Sprocket and a few of the Roulette coins for sale. If anybody is interested, please check out my thread in the Vendors section.

went out today

Took the girlfriend on a geocaching adventure today. Learning to use my 60csx, but seems so easy after originally trying with an etrex. Found 3, DNF 1, and could not cross a flooded creek to get another. Thinking we should start doing just motorcycle themed caches. Getting my girlfriend to design something for a new cache. Might pick up one of those sprocket coins in blue for us yammie riders.
