Target # 50 - Goodbye, Joefrog I can't believe it's coming to an end... I've had lots of fun running this cache. Special thanks to Motorbug for the opportunity to adopt it from him, and thanks to everyone for helping me enjoy it! I've laughed with you all and gotten to know many and more of you off-list. There have been a lot of changes for me while running this cache, and I was very thankful for the friendship and variety this cache offered me. You've kept my spirits up during some very hard times, and I'll miss that. This hobby has truly changed my life, and introduced me to people I will treasure the rest of my life.
The target for #50 WAS going to be "Love Incarnate, Love In Action," where you find something that embodies LOVE and happiness. It could be anything at all -- a baby crying, a wedding, a family portrait at your Christmas tree. If you want to show me what love is to you, do it! But instead, for this target you're going to have to do a few things... anything more is up to you.
First, take a pic of yourself (and your family, if you can) with a sign that says "Goodbye Joefrog!" Be creative with the location and the sign. Make me laugh, show me things you want me to see, and for everyone else to remember. As always, at least two pics are required.
Second, I want you to tell me a story... what was your favorite target, and why? Your favorite Dash memory? Tell me! I'd love to know that your life was improved as mine has been.
Finally... say goodbye. Lie to me and tell me you'll miss me! Remember to stay in touch, folks... it's been lots of fun.

Target # 39 - Life Imitates Art Imitates Life I've seen these statues around for ages -- now YOU have to find one! For this target, you must find a permanent statue of a person, where the statue is "imitating life!" A statue sitting playing checkers, sitting on a bench beside you, skating statues, fishing statues... hopefully you get the idea. But here is the catch... you have to be in the photo, posed the same way as the statue! If the statue is playing checkers, you should be playing checkers in front of it. If the statue is a ballerina, you should be on tippy-toe beside it! All statues must be sidewalk or ground level -- no climbing! It must be permanent (no yard art) and publicly accessible. Please try to tell about WHY the monument is placed where it is. Yard ornaments and non-permanent items will be deleted without notice, as will attempts at abusing the target's wording trying to find a loophole. If you have any doubt about the find, ASK! AT LEAST TWO PHOTOS ARE REQUIRED, AS ALWAYS. One photo must include your GPS.
Clarification on "Life Imitates Art Imitates Life." Posted 8/18/05
This is not added criteria -- only clarification for what is expected. The object of this target is not simply to find statues of people, but to find an accessible statue that seems to "interact" with the public.
You also have to pose in the same way as the sculpture! A recent log by "chelemybell" and "Capt Biggins" are perfect examples. See the photo next to the target description for yet another example.
Expires when the lights go out, December 31, 2005.
