I didn't know Txoilgas had passed.
Good on you completing that big challenge!
I'm just too haphazard a cacher for that sort of thing.

Many of you probably know that Texas now has a Delorme Challenge cache (GC2WBQZ) located in Denton. I didn't know about it until I met the late Txoilgas in December to sign the TCC log. He was the first to finish the challenge in January just before he passed away. Well, I finished it about a week ago on my way to Colorado and completed the log in Denton as STF yesterday and wanted to share it with all of you. It was a great honor to join Alan on the log.
Anyone working on the County Challenge should get a Delorme atlas because it is so easy to get a county and miss a grid just a few miles away. When I ran the GSAK macro for the Delorme after finishing all the counties, there were 8 grids open. The challenge has 69 grids, but a lot of them are small slices along the state line or just a triangle along the border.
I has to retrace the miles to get 3 in the Big Bend (be prepared to explain geocaching to the Border Patrol although some knew about it), one along the NM line, each top corner of the TX panhandle, and 2 near Texarkana. It was worth every mile. What a game we have here!!
