EnPleinAire's 3,000: That's what she said! Traditional Geocache

Parking can be accessed in the parking lot close to the trail at the Popular Creek Equestrian Trail Parking off of Schaumburg Road just little ways from Route 59. For most of your journey you can walk the nicely paved trail leading to your destination, be sure to watch out for the flying grasshoppers.
In an effort to recognize those who pass a major milestone, Special Ed and FallenFaery have started the tradition of placing milestone caches. Caches will be placed for every 1000 found. It's just a small way to congratulate local cachers and their efforts.
This cache is dedicated to EnPleinAire, a wonderful cacher to who has been by my side on quite a few caching excursions.
Cache is painted in camouflage colors, green and brown to hide it among the foliage. This cache has fallen down but can easier be spotted under the tree branches of the fallen tree. There were many people who made this cache a success and they are as follows:
K'wren-provided certificate and swag
macwin11se-ammo can and final hide
BDSmiley-final hide and carabiner
Throughout our journeys there has been a running joke going on through our group and through geocaching in general, "That's what she said." I remember when macwin11se, BDSmiley, EnPleineAire, and myself went caching one night around Lombard area the jokes were said and they kept coming EnPleineAire wanted to write them all down. I will try to keep this PG not to offend anyone because this is all in good fun. Pretty much in any situation that could arise you can make a That's what she said joke.
While we may never know the exact origin of the phrase. One of the earliest, if not first, occurrences of That's what she said in popular culture can be traced back to 1975, uttered by Chevy Chase during Weekend Update on the first season of the popular sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Live".
Recently, many people have come forward with stories allegedly passed down from generation to generation regarding either the ancestor witnessing or telling the first instance of the joke. Here is a list of quotes alleged to have resulted in "That's what she said."
“Your tongue is extremely gifted.”
~ Shakespeare, to an actor, during an audition.
“I think nine is all I can handle.”
~ Beethoven on his symphonies
“Yeah, I survived, but look at me, I can barely walk.”
~ F.D.R. on his polio
“Sure, I get sweaty and flustered, and my voice is shouted hoarse, but I think it's worth it.”
~ Hitler on his speeches
~ Random U.S. Marine on Pearl Harbor
“It looks like a gigantic mushroom. I think that thing could seriously hurt a lot of people.”
~ Harry Truman on the testing of the first atomic bomb
“How the hell did that penetrate both of us?”
~ John F. Kennedy's last words, spoken to Former Texas Governor John Connally
“Stop pounding me so hard!”
~ Mike Tyson to Evander Holyfield, shortly before "the incident"
By adding That's what she said it makes it fun!
Upon finding a nano in the woods, "That's so small. How can anyone ever find that?"
Night caching - "Where is it? I can't see it."
Off-roading to a cache "Faster Brian. Go for it!"
Finding an ammo can - "That's a big one."..
When trying to place a log into a nano someone would say it doesn't fit, "That's what she said!".
When katydoodle was soaked by Cave of the Winds in Niagara Falls she exclaimed "I'm so wet!" That's what she said!
On that same trip EnPleineAire had gotten soaked as well from the falls and exclaimed "I'm taking my pants off now!" That's what she said!
While trying to climb a tree you could exclaim "it's so slippery!" That's what she said!
Sometimes you will encounter a soggy log while trying to fit it into a pre-form, you may exclaim "It doesn't fit!" That's what she said!
Usually it's all in good fun but be sure to be careful to have a context for the joke not to offend anyone. So leave an appropriate comment keep the joke going!
