      Team GeoJewett (Evan, Eron, myself and my wife) just passed 200 finds.   I find a good portion of them, but both my boys are equipped with "eagle eyes" and easily spot many caches before I ask "Do we need to read the hint?"  when they go out hunting with me.   There favorites are the medium and larges ones, because they like to trade stuff.

      Thanks again to a great community and contributions to this great sport -- we are having a blast! :)

      My family and I just started this crazy hobby 2 months ago and we just found our 100th cache  yesterday.

      Thanks to Doc Geo's class through Texas Parks and Wildlife I brought home something fun that the whole family loves.  We've seen cool things, met nice people and I'm looking forward to finding the next 100.  

      My three year old just asked me if we were going treasure hunting when her dad gets off work...  You won't have to ask him twice.

        And no worried about thread hijacking... I thought the story about the family name was interesting...

              Congrats to you guys!! I just started last January and have been caught by the bug myself. So far it's been a fun ride but what has kept me going strong is the wonderful events the centex cachers have hosted!! It's so much fun to talk to the ones who hide those tricky caches and put a face on that evil genious!!

                Wish we could make it.  Evan and I definitely want to make it to at least one event and then many more after that. Unfortunately, I am down in Port A, but having fun with my family and some friends.

                We picked up a couple of your caches in Cuero, and I plan to pick a bunch in Port A tomorrow,  I need a break from the sand.  

                I will be going with the family in August to DC and drive up to NY, and you can bet that we will be picking up some caches then as well.   Then, later in October, I will be flying into Seattle, WA for a family wedding, and will visit the geocaching Mecca there. 

                GeoJewett will be out in spirit, while you'll party in Austin without us!

                  Sorry to here that we will miss meeting you all this weekend, but as long as you are caching and having fun, that is all that matters. Wow, it sounds like you have some great caching adventures ahead of you. Be sure to keep us in CenTx posted!
                  BTW, keep looking for my "way out of the way" caches. I have a challenge planned that involves finding my hides. Do a query to see where they all are. More info on that soon!

                  On the topic of milestones and progress..

                  Team GeoJewett (Evan, Eron, myself and my wife) just passed 200 finds.   I find a good portion of them, but both my boys are equipped with "eagle eyes" and easily spot many caches before I ask "Do we need to read the hint?"  when they go out hunting with me.   There favorites are the medium and larges ones, because they like to trade stuff.

                  Thanks again to a great community and contributions to this great sport -- we are having a blast! :)

                  My family and I just started this crazy hobby 2 months ago and we just found our 100th cache  yesterday.

                  Thanks to Doc Geo's class through Texas Parks and Wildlife I brought home something fun that the whole family loves.  We've seen cool things, met nice people and I'm looking forward to finding the next 100.  

                  My three year old just asked me if we were going treasure hunting when her dad gets off work...  You won't have to ask him twice.
