C*C 1000!!!....and Farewell
In Iowa, United States
How Geocaching Works
CACHE IS NOT AT POSTED COORDINATES!!
But feel free to park there, (when allowed)!!
As I was preparing this cache to celebrate my geo-friend's achievement, I found out they were soon going to be moving out of the area. While beginning preparations for their move, unfortunately, geocaching would have to take a back seat and reaching the magic "1000" will be delayed. I am confident they will reach this milestone at some point in the near future, so I have decided to go ahead and place this cache in advance of that goal as a "farewell tribute" to acknowledge my thanks for their mentoring, friendship, and contributions to the Clinton caching community.
UPDATE 9/11/11: This is no longer an "almost" tribute!!! Cosmic*Cachers hit that magic milestone today while finding GC2BFKV "Challenge of the Century - Streak". This was an appropriate choice for their 1000th find, as this cache requires finding one cache a day for at least 100 consecutive days (see description below to see how they did!). CONGRATULATIONS COSMIC*CACHERS FOR REACHING THE 'FOUR-DIGIT' CLUB!!!
I know I speak for all geocachers in the area when I say,
***SPECIAL TRIBUTE CACHE***SPECIAL TRIBUTE CACHE***
"You will be missed".
I don’t know if I can say they’ve “done it all”,
Cosmic * Cachers have been caching since December of 2007. They are based here in Iowa, but actually made their first find in Texas. Since then they have cached in 13 different states, have logged over 50 FTF’s, and most recently began a quest to fill in their D/T and Calendar grids with over 70% complete at this point. They also completed the 100 Day Challenge (finishing at 170 days!! ), while enduring an unexpected medical issue. They are consummate cachers with an adventurous spirit and have placed several quality hides. One of their hides (Puppy Luv) is a popular local seed cache that has produced nearly 30 new caches in Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Texas and California. Cosmic*Cachers are also a member of C.A.G.E. (Clinton Area GEocachers) – an informal local geocaching group created to promote and maintain the top caches in this area.
but they’ve definitely done “a lot of it”!!
This is a tribute cache commemorating Cosmic*Cachers reaching their 1000th find. You are seeking a standard silver ammo can, representative of this achievement level. This cache is initially loaded with some really good “cosmic” related swag – so be sure to bring the kids for “take something, leave something”. C*C (as they are affectionately known) always enjoy a good puzzle, and have a reputation in this area for putting out some really fun puzzle caches (check out their profile), so of course, this tribute cache needed to symbolize their contributions to the local caching community.
Solve this puzzle and you will be honoring their accomplishment of reaching this level of geocaching success.
Cache is located at:
Good Luck, and Happy Caching!!
(No hints available.)
More Cosmic Fun!!
