899 and counting

Got back from Bend Yesterday without a clue at how many caches I had... turned out I was just one short of 900. We had at least 4 no finds over the weekend that could have pushed the count up.

On Saturday SallyC and I drove all over Central Oregon collecting sections for the Oregon DeLorme Challenge. We went from Brothers to Prineville, to Madras, down to Redmond and back to Bend all before the event. Our finds for the day:

Sylvester's Fool -a- Palooza
Sylvester's Bar & Grill
Fairview
Through The Dale
Fair & Square
Neo's coolest weapon
Willow Creek Bison Cache
Westside Madras
Canyon Beloooooooow!

On Sunday we took off for home taking a northern route to Springfield. Stopping for just a few caches along the way. We made a brief stop in Eugene for lunch and to the museum to view a 10,000 year old sandal. Then we stopped for a couple caches in Curtin and Drain before calling it a weekend. Finds for the day include:

You've got mail
McKenzie Airstrip
Would you like to adopt me?
I'll Pass
Under Cover

I now have 34 of 76 sections needed for the challenge.

Sounds like a fun weekend cache hunting. Getting ever so close to that 1k mark. Just think...with the current 250,558 caches worldwide you only have 249,659 to go. Better get an extra battery for the GPSr :)

Have a great day!!!
