FTF streak: 47 months
One of the first things I do every morning is check out the Geocaching Puzzle of the Day email. Imagine my surprise when today's suggestion was from a geobud! Now, ordinarily I would not chase an FTF nearly 100 miles from home base, but this one grabbed my attention. I kept trying to push it out of my mind and concentrate on my to-do list for the day. But it kept beckoning me... teasing me... taunting me. Suddenly I noticed a clue, then another, then another. The FTF hound in me took over until I had completely immersed myself in the quest of the solve. Finally, I had the needed info to make the journey and hollered at pseudo-fam RedRider99 and BackWoodsAng to meet me near my projected final. We were only able to deduce five of the six puzzle pieces, but that was enough to narrow the true location down considerably.
We made a few initial mispicks before eventually settling in on the elusive container. Once found, we spilled our ink, scored the FTF and the smiley, headed back to our geomobiles and continued on our way.
Nicely done puzzle that led me to blow off my chores and hang out with a couple of my favorite geobuds for a little while! Thanks and cache ya later, LakeBum37663!
