YIPPEE !!!!!!!
A school cross country meet was rescheduled due to rain so I was free to leave town. Headed south 2 1/2 hours to an event and picked up 20 caches in the area.

My original goal was 25 but luckily there were several schedule last minute changes during the month so my own total = 62
Team total = 414

Got a hard one today -- took us three tries. First time, we mis-projected a waypoint. Second time, a flood carried off the container, someone else had unearthed it and left it in another location for safekeeping. Third time was the charm, but almost a let-down after so much work!

I had 4 kids under 4 yrs old. The street is not child friendly - no sidewalks so I'm a streetwalker when I walk there - but not with the little ones. Although we usually walk about a mile or two each day (broken into 2 trips).

Slow month for me - can't even set a goal yet.
Got 1 on 9/1, then 6 yesterday on a mega- puzzle tour with a couple friends. It was a 20 mile loop for a puzzle cache, (and that's 25 mi. from home) and fitting in some on the route just to add #s. What a fun day! The puzzle was a lot of effort, but we got it. Nice unexpected hide in the woods after all the clues were downtown urban types.

Spent 6 hours on those 6 finds, but it was fun!

My total is 6 so far in September.
My goal is 35.

Haven't had as much time to cache as usual, but the weather today was so nice, I had to get outside! One I found today was in a cacher's yard. Of course, she saw me wandering around in her yard turning circles and had to come give me a hard time! It was a nice cache and made me laugh alot!

Sorry, I didn't mean to use an unusual term. In think the term belaying really just means to wrap one end of a rope around a tree or something stabile.

We use it to mean fastening a rope around a tree and then using that to hold onto when climbing down a very steep slope. We don't fasten the rope to ourselves. There is usually one person on top and one person below. Sometimes if the footing is slippery the person below might hold on and the person above might pull to give a little assistance with the climb up.

It's much simpler than it sounds in my clumsy words!

BTW, I'm the upper partner and my husband is the lower partner. But I think by next summer I might be light enough to reverse that!

I think it's tying a rope around your waist and jumping off a cliff. MAYBE a few more details involved then just jumping - but it still scares me. LOL

a rope for belaying would scare a few pounds off me. Definitely sounds like a 5 to me. Around here everyone thinks their caches are harder then they are. They usually drop the difficulty after a few days and a few comments from the finders.

I found 12 on Saturday after heading 75 miles NW.
Today I took the kids 115 miles E and picked up 22 caches. Several of them were puzzles. I'm starting to get kind of fond of them.

Yes, I'll put the challenge info together soon. I'm thinking of starting it on the first day of Fall - Sept 22nd. I got a lot of positive feedback, but not really anything about what people liked/didn't like, so I guess I'll have to figure it out myself :)

Don't give up - I'm not far ahead of you!

Go for it, Relevart, Middle Kiddo decided to come Sunday, which was the day we planned to go caching. But I'd rather spend time with him. Possibly we can go somewhere on Monday, but I'm not getting my hopes up!

I gave it a good run for the money, and there is always a Fall Challenge, no?

I know what you mean - I was just in Pittsburgh and was amazed and overwhelmed by the cache map. How would you possibly ever get anything done with all those caches tempting you? LOL

My friend's grandmother used to have an Alaskan Husky named Kenai. He was a really cool dog - looked like a wolf.

Not visiting...I live in Kenai, Alaska. Love to geocache but lots of land means lots of space in between caches so big numbers are hard to get. I am amazed to go to a new city down south find so many caches in one place. Maybe I'm more jealous than amazed:-)

RATS! Turns out we will probably not be able to take that trip this month. If we don't travel, we won't get any caches, but if we do, we might get a good number. What to do... Maybe best to go without a caching goal for the month.

September is usually a tough month for us, but we were given an "overnight caching trip" by our Kiddos for our Anniversary, and we MAY do that in September. So I'm going to say 25.

I will have to take a trip to get to any caches so if I do that I will try to grab as many as possible from whatever town I go to. My August goal will be 25, probably high since I'll have one chance to travel this month unless the kids schedules change.

We are building a deck in our backyard, so I haven't cached for 3 weeks. It's killing me! So I am not sure when I will get to go again. Should be done with the deck by the 19th, so maybe 15-20....

I am caching with some newbie girlfriends on the 20th.
