Another find for [b]Team 500 +[/b] along [b]THE[/b] [i]mother of all power caching trails[/i] that resides on the CA and Nevada border for some April Fooling around, geocaching style. [b]Team 500 +[/b] consists of [b][green]Team Geo-Rangers and Peasinapod [/b][/green] with the trip goal of finding 500+ caches in a single calendar day. Two ardent geocachers, one vehicle loaded down with provisions and TOTT, and the best intel planning that money can buy! Countless hours finding geocaches and the requisite exercise that goes with it (lifting swag laden ammo cans) has finally paid off! We started at exactly midnight and cached the trail all day long, finding [b]626[/b] geocaches for a personal best. It proved to be a worthy physical and mental challenge to give it our all for 24 hours straight, realizing an average cache find every 2 minutes and 18 seconds. Also, no LPCs were attempted or harmed on this day! There was some collateral damage done to the 4WD Geocaching Utility Vehicle but Peas was prepared for that contingency, so it didn't really affect the daily outcome.
Other highlights of the day included awakening a bird at the old Natural Air Conditioning cache site, meeting [b]Moose Mob[/b] on the trail and his bio-fueled SEMI loaded with large torpedo tube caches (we slipped in some signed log sheets when he wasn't looking), greeting geocachers from Big Bend, Oregon, Redding, California, and Dylan's Pirates in their cool looking red jeep (maybe it was white but just covered with trail dust?!).
We would like to thank the cache hiders for a wonderful challenge and the significant effort that went into executing a first class geocaching adventure! Four Thumbs, WAY UP!!!
We would also like to thank our wonderful wives for the approval of the kitchen passes and their encouragement to attempt to set an unofficial geocaching world record. Without their support, we would be otherwise spending our time mowing the lawn, trimming the hedges and working on tax returns like everyone else who doesn't geocache.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH; your cache is greatly appreciated!

[b][purple]Cut and Paste Logging Disclaimer:[/b][/purple]
[red] All geocaching logs have been entered using the services of Cecil B Monkey Enterprises, so please forgive the impersonal cut and paste log. We at CBM Enterprises believe that all geocaches published by Groundspeak are truly great and worth seeking so please do not let this C&P log detract from the noble undertakings of cache hiders and good looking admins that volunteer their considerable time to make this endeavor wonderful for all, especially power caching trails. To conserve precious log sheet space, [b]Team 500 +[/b] was noted on all logs for caches found. Final caveat: [b]WARNING: PEASINAPOD and TEAM GEO-RANGERS are highly trained geocaching professionals, so please don't try this at home or anywhere else for that matter! [/b][/red]
