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?

    Congrats on the Milestone.

    GC1GZMQ Ring Ma Bell was my 1000th. It was a puzzle cache created by Tiger Tracker with the final cache location in downtown Moncton. The cache has since been archived :0

    It is great to find a special cache for a milestone. And I think you have mor Pushkin caches than we do. One day we will make an attempt at some of them

    Find #1000 was not a real big event for me. I didn’t plan on any special cache. But it was good to get. The cache was one in a series placed by Belladan. His dog series. It was cache ” Barking Up The Wrong Tree ” – GC2TNM6.
    Part of my log was ” No banners,no flags,no cake,no need.I hit the four digits.The smiley is on my face “.
    But I do remember doing the series with Rev Slippery, Incepit, Zonker and Snake9. Sometimes there doesn’t need to be a milestone cache to get when your out with a bunch of great people.
    But I did choose specific caches for 2000 ( Geocache–Canada’s 1st geocache – GCBBA, which I got with Cableguy ) and 3000 ( Maritime Mega II – Caching the Capital ).

    I know you must be thrilled triple ccc. 1000 is a long way to go. Once you hit the four digits you feel like you hit the big time.
    Congrats and welcome to the pros.

    Congrats on the special milestone. My 1000th was Canada’s First, CGBBA, which I did with EBE51, who was doing his 2000th.

    My 1000th was in PEI on the yearly caching raid with Ron568, Rev Slippery, and paulandstacey. It was a pretty uninspired cache on a guardrail but they took my photo for the milestone anyway. GL2KK88W

    If we’re talking milestone caches then I think my 2000th would rank as the best one so far for me. The Original Stash Plaque out in Oregon. GL41CYDQ

    1000 caches is a lot of caches. Even with people with numbers far beyond that, having 1000 finds says that you have definitely put some time and effort into what you’ve been enjoying.

    Our 1000 th cache was not memorable. A cache with bad coords on an ATV trail in Notre Dame.

    Strangely we were really excited by our 50th find, which was also our first FTF. Notice the smiling faces
