FTF's are fun!!!I got a notification for 3 new caches today(March 15) and took off to go grab. When I got to the first one, I realized my app did not download all the info or hints. All I had to go on was the map and the ability to navigate.
All the cache pages that I saved had no info whatsoever. Very weird!!
I was still able to find them all and claim the FTF!!! YAY!!!
I left some of my Pathtags and trading cards in them all for others to enjoy!!

Finding these 3 FTF's has put me at 4998 Finds, only 2 away from 5000. I was planning to get #5000 in Las Vegas, but that trip has been postponed for now. Need to look and see what cache I want to do for my 5000th find somewhere local.
5000 Finds!!!YAY, I Just hit a milestone of 5000 finds since I started caching!!!!! I was planning to get it in Las Vegas this coming weekend, but since our trip was postponed, I decided to find a high Favorited cache here to grab. I was sitting at 4998, and called Susan to see if she wanted to go grab a couple of caches with Oliver and I. I looked at my list of most favorite caches in the area, and found 2 very close to each other, like on the same trail, 200 metres away from each other. Lol.
We went to Richmond and grabbed them both. We went to "RichmondC150#06-Sticky Situation which was in plain site, and then headed down the trail to grab my 5000th cache called "Ensconcement Interchange" which was also in plain site but locked so muggles could not access it. Between the 2 caches, they had over 300 favorite points.
Here is the "Video" of my 4999th and 5000th cache that I got with Sansue and my little boy on March 17th/20

Puzzle cache solvingSo lately Oliver and I have been hanging out at home because of the ever changing world we are living in right now. This was posted on the British Columbia Geocachers Association (B.C.G.A.) page;
People are still permitted outside if feeling healthy. Take your current Health condition into account.

April CachingSo as I have stated above, we have been getting some puzzle caches and while we were out grabbing several today in south Surrey some new caches got published near my place. Obviously not enough time to get back there to get the FTF. We did a cool cache called "Rubik's Cache" where the first stage, there was a Rubik's Cube in the container. It was mixed up and it had Numbers etched into all the faces.
Here is the Video of me solving the cube at this cache, as well as some other caches we did.
Right after we made the find and signed the logbook, I got a notification of another new cache. This one was only about 5 km away from where we were. Yay, lets go!!! We headed there, and headed down the trail to a cool little lake in the middle of a residential area and got the FTF!!!!
