On this day 3 years ago SallyC and I completed the Oregon DeLorme Challenge.

My how time flies. That was a lot of fun. Perhaps I need to find a new challenge cache to make things interesting again.

Finds by date

I was reading popop's blog today and say his post for a new challenge cache.

Days of the Year Challenge

Mike had nearly 90% I only have 64%... at least I do have a February 29 so I won't have to wait till 2012, but with the way I do things it will probably take even longer then that. I do have enough local caches saved up that I could potentially complete this, but the soonest would be October 2, 2010. Here is my chart.

Another challenge complete

So I went and found a few caches today

one more
Z Trail
Very Near By

The first 4 were all in Cathedral Hills. There are a ton more there for me to find, but I went with my sister and her little dog and didn't want to drag them over every trail. I'll probably make multiple trips to get the rest. Teel is near where my parents live and is actually in the exact spot my sister had a cache hidden before. I decided to grab Very Near By later in the day so that I could complete the ABC Challenge. To complete this challenge you need to have found a cache whose name begins with each letter of the alphabet. V was my last letter. There are lots of caches around and I could have completed it a long time ago, but I was taking my time. Now I just need to get up to Albany to log the final. I have tickets for an OSU game Oct 31 so I'll probably be able to grab it then, but I might make it up there sooner.

Speaking of challenge caches I need to get over to Bend and log CCIO someday. I probably hold some sort of record for the longest time between completion and logging of a challenge cache.

October cache

Well it didn't take me long to get my first October cache. I made the short walk from my house to pick up

I Care & Eye Care 2

I might go and find a few caches this weekend. Cathedral Hills has a bunch that I haven't found. Maybe I'll get back into the groove of things faster then I expected... or maybe the rain will start sooner then expected and I won't find any... who knows.
