Many thanks Mark for the many many years of service. Also thanks for your early placed caches back in 2003 for my first Vic caching adventure. Glug Glug Glug is an experience I'll never forget :lol:

Many more clear skies from AstroJohn

Thanks for your contribution to geocaching. =D> =D> =D>

I trust you will get more time to review in person many of the caches that you approved.

The first time I realised that caches were published by an actual person was when we were planning our "Happily Ever After" cache-fest and wanted to have multiple caches by multiple placers all published at once. embi was helpful and gracious and the launch went off without a hitch thanks to his help.

I've been wearing multiple pairs of reviewer socks to try to fit into the big shoes!

Of latter years, it's been mostly Bear_Left caches and the occasional importuning Victorian that have had the "Published by embi" imprint, so I guess I'll be bugging riblit for all our future placed caches!

Good to see a few smileys in your recent stats, Mark, and I hope you and your (growing) family find many more. I'll do my best to make sure that the new caches you're looking for are as accurately listed as I can make them.

Thanks for all the hard work, Mark.

You were the one who pushed for an Australian reviewer and were the first, which then led to others. Without your work, we'd probably still be dependent on the US reviewers.

Hope we will see you finding the odd cache around the place, and still attending some of the events.

Thanks embi for your massive contribution to caching.....You don't happen to keep a list of all the caches you published......would be interesting to look back on.

I'm not going to ask theUMP for his because we could be here for a very long time. :shock:
