Wow. Would you believe I wasn't even targeting this cache initially on my geo-trip? I've found lower-id caches, and I already have a May 2000 cache, but with so many favorites in the area, this one popped up.
Then I realized how close to 1000 I was and thought... "no way". I promise I did no cache manipulation over the last two days (except grabbing the 3 other nearby caches first), and am proud for this to be my 1000th find!
Some caches bring you to a great location. Some have awesome containers. And some, like this, are just full of history. I love how the actual GZ here is almost a shrine to caching. Who knows. Maybe we'll be back for the 20th anniversary next year...though it is quite a long ways from home.
Thanks to everyone who has helped keep this one alive (as well as all the favorited caches nearby, without which, I might not have found this).
