A couple of years ago I made it my goal to one day "cache out" Oconto County. I almost completed it last fall but had a pesty DNF that put it on hold but I had at least whittled the number down to single digits. Then this fall tc54915 put out her power trail in Forest Co. that dipped down into Oconto Co...cleared those out last month as well as all but one of the remaining unfound ones...and no more surprises occurred until early this morning. I achieved my goal from the comfort of my own bed when Wis Kid archived that pesty DNF that was hanging over me. Mission accomplished Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Congratulations, Rod! Isn't it wonderful when those DNFs disappear and you didn't have to do it?

Congrats on clearing out the entire county, and done in a very unique way. Now if you haven't done so already you can try to close out all of Menominee county - it only has one cache in it, a virtual! Smile

The best part is that it was accomplished from the comfort of your own bed! Life is good. Congrats!
