Finding 1000 Geocaches
We recently went for our 1000 cache find. We have been saving two waterfall caches near Truro for our big milestone.
We left early morning to start our adventure. It was a easy walk down the railroad tracks to the furthest cache in. This is where the adventure started. We bushwhacked in about 250 meters and looked for a good place to climb down the 100 foot ravine. The climb down was not that hard if you slid on your rear. We hiked up to the waterfall and was it ever beautiful.
We stopped to admire it a bit before looking for the cache. It was a super quick and easy find because the hint was excellent. This was our big 1000. We shared some high-fives and fist bumps and took some pictures. It was a great feeling to finally the big 1000.
We then hiked back up to the train tracks to get the other cache we had passed on the way in. The hike was good and going through the woods was easier then the other one. It had a longer ravine but the climb down was easier. The find was more difficult because we forgot to read the hint to find out it was on the opposite side of the river. Once we found that out it was a short climb up a rock face and then it was right there. It was another amazing waterfall as well.
It was pretty uneventful from then on, just a simple hike back up to the railroad tracks and back to the car. We went for 5 caches nearby and we only managed to find 3 of them. Got a3 Pushkin and two other caches for the day.
What did you find for your 1000th find?
