Congratulations! That number is so mindboggling.Without mentioning names , what was the most exiting, worst muggles, most frustrating, funniest, furthest from civilisation, most expensive due to unforseen disasters,etc? :lol:
By the time I retire there'll be so many I'll need another life to find them all!

Well they have just left the Pork-Quarters after a few bottles of SA's Best ! :D

They seemed pretty ordinary about their 2000th! Even planning it perfectly so Vector was the 2000th, But officially Alex's Happy Birthday cache was also the 2000th if you take the 2 x GCA caches out of the score.

I suspect the score may get a bit higher pretty soon from the conversation we have had tonight, theres a heap of SA caches for them to find before they head off in 5 days !

Good luck on the 2100 guys !

Incredible! Congratulations to you both. And such down to earth and nice people as well :)

(Peter, you can now stop saying I need a life :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: )

Seriously, wish I was retired and had time to travel this great country and do it. I can think of a hell of a lot of worse ways to spend retirement.

Thanks to all. We always enjoy caching in SA so we were glad to be able to reach our second kilocache there. Special thanks to those teams who have provided a big part of our fun over the last few years, including Biggles Bear (78 caches), muzza (67), Piggy (61), Freddo (60), Alex (54) and 2 Dogs (43), to name just a few. Hopefully we'll be able to keep going for a while yet. We're still learning, still enjoying, and trying to postpone, for as long as possible, the day when our personal terrain rating declines to 1.
