Thanks everyone. It has been a great ride, and while pure numbers caching is not my thing as much anymore, the numbers still add up over time. Sometimes I cache with friends, sometimes I cache alone, but my favorite type of caching these days is caching with Lauryn. I dont get many when I cache with her, since she likes to stay at the good places a lot longer than I normally would, but I am liking her approach to the sport: stay and play at the interesting places.

For the 20K milestone, I went out with Lauryn and we got just 18 that day, but we had fun looking for the type of caches she likes. She likes short (400 - 800 feet) walks in the woods to ammo boxes in the woods filled with swag for kids the most, so when I cache with her we go for as many of those as we can find. She also likes fun and interesting places like the giant eyeball in Angelo, where we got the 20,000th.

Lauryn doesnt like WSQs at all, or PNGs, though I do like to get them myself. So when I cache with her, I have to leave most of those for future trips. We also went to the Slayton museum in Sparta on the day we got 20K, and that is a great cache for kids. She also likes caches in parks with play equipment, so I do those with her as well.

Anyway, changing styles of caching keeps it fresh and fun for me.

Awesome! Congrats on 20,000! It was fun to be a part of finding a couple of those 20 grand with you, over on the island in MI.

Congrats Ralph on a lot of caches. That's a lot of logs! So glad you are enjoying caching with your girl. Fun! I bet your favorite all-time cache of those 20,000 was Power Island, right? Razz

Congratulations on 20K, Ralph. Sounds like your favorite caching partner has it all figured out. Stay and play at the fun places, and take pictures of dad.
