Uh, in case you didn't catch that...
FTF! (Fourth To Find)
11/29/09 - that's the last Find (well, qualified Find) Not quite but nearly 4 years ago. And I've been wondering for that entire time, nearly the entire time I've been caching, if I might get that "FTF"... This was among the first Challenges I ever saw and pursued. It remains among my favorites.
With the exception of SCUBA caches deep in Lake Travis, within a 40 mile radius this cache has the longest current streak without a Find. Er, HAD the longest streak. That streak just ended. Nothing within 40 miles has sat active waiting longer (above water).
This Challenge has introduced me to some spectacular caches, for which I'm grateful. It's also made me terribly curious about the caches that archived before I got to seek them. Still, to this day, I would like to find those.
Big thanks to SoaringEagle for all the work surrounding the Centex Awards the related Challenges.
I won't even go into the story of actually trying to find the Final once I qualified - that's a long fun story all it's own (picture the parting of the red... stems). It's fours years in the making and is way-big-serious thrilling to finally be able to say....
