We were caching the day away, and we realized how close to a milestone we were. There's many of disputes as to what constitutes as a milestone, but to us.. they're special every 100. This one is probably one of the most special ones because of Goldie. We planned out most of the day to make sure that this was #1600 for us. We had made it outside of the house that was listed, and were extremely apprehensive about going in. We sat in our car and read the description a couple of times, just to make sure we were at the right spot. Well, moment of truth.
We walked up the driveway, where there were a couple of kids in the garage. We said hello, and asked if there was a cache in the back yard. The one guy replied "Cash? You want cash?" Couldn't help but laugh. The guy in the driver's seat of the truck, looked back through the window and said "Yeah, there's a cache in the back yard. Follow the bricked path, and you'll see it." We thanked the guys, and made our way to the back yard.
We were trying to be careful where we stepped, because of the snow, we couldn't tell if there was stuff we could potentially break. We made it to the cache. Nice big container with lots of stuff in it! LOVED IT!!!! Signed the log, and wrote a little note inside kind of like the old days, placed everything back in the container, and sealed it up.
On the way back to the car, a guy came stepping out onto the concrete. Goldie! We said hello to him, and it was nice to talk to one of the geocaching legends without the distractions that normally occur during the cache bash. It was nice talking to him, but we made sure to keep it short as he was only wearing socks outside, and we were all bundled up.
We enjoyed this cache very much. The best part was just getting to it. The talk was great too. Thank you Goldie Diggers. This is a cache we will never forget. TFTC
