Today was the day that we (the geocachers known as Sensible Shoes) finally reached 400 finds. It’s taken us 8 1/2 years to get there, but get there we did. We’ve been saying for the last couple of years that “this is the year we get to 400”, but it hasn’t happened until today.
We were at 395 this morning, and found three more before lunch to get us to 398. All the caches we found were either in or very close to playgrounds, so the boys had a good time too, riding their scooters and playing on the play equipment. We even got to climb “Bluluru”!
Seeing that today was my last day of holidays before returning to work, I thought it would be nice to reach our 400 milestone today. So after lunch we headed out and got the remaining two to get us to 400. The 400th find was near a park that the boys love going to, but unfortunately their favourite piece of play equipment has been fenced off (presumably for repairs), so we had to make do with the flying fox. After a couple of turns each we headed off to celebrate our achievements, and as we were walking to the car the rain began and only got heavier once we were in the car. Perfect timing!
Now that we’ve finally made it to 400, our next goal is to reach 450 by our nine-year cacheversary in May.
