What an incredible adventure. Peasinapod, Team Sand Dollar, Team GeoRanger and I (="Team 1K+")set out with the objective to complete the entire ET Trail in one calendar day. Starting at midnight, we logged 0001ET and I promptly got myself tangled up in the barbed wire fence! However it was no worse than other caching injuries I've encountered and off we went, visiting every single cache along the way. Where possible, we also grabbed nearby caches that could be done quickly. We were always careful to pull completely off the road, though we were really surprised, on the long weekend, that there were so few cachers taking advantage of the opportunity. Really had to be vigilant to watch for the cows on the road, the black ones were very dangerous, hard to see unless the last moment. Aside from the ubiquitous cows, we saw about a million small lizards, 4 baby horn toads, about a dozen antelope, several horses, and one disabled spacecraft (see photo). No snakes. We had really optimized for fast caching, and made great time. A couple of caches had not had their top rocks replaced and had blown away in the wind so were replaced. Not counting the non-ET caches, our total time to complete the ET Trail was about 20 hours and 15 minutes. When we finished we decided to go to Tonopah to try to increase our one day count as much as we could. We ended up with 1564 caches in one calendar day - a record I'll not equal again for a long time, if ever. I'd like to thank my caching team members for bringing me along on the adventure as I was the junior cacher of the group with 'only' 4000 finds when we started. And especially thanks to the CO's for putting out this wonderful trail of caches.

infoA letterbox is another form of treasure hunting using clues instead of coordinates. In some cases, however, a letterbox has coordinates, and the owner has made it a letterbox and a geocache. To read more about letterboxing, visit the Letterboxing North America web site.
