This number does seem a bit unreal, but it’s a testament to how continually fun and fascinating geocaching is.
I went to the Yucca Valley/Joshua Tree area last weekend, and amid about 150 finds, I clocked #15,000.
This little gem of a cache, placed by the Wheeler Dealers included this lovely container!
Triple Crown Road
I tooled around the desert with a small and merry band driving 4x4s:
Tricky Dick, 6ftzpr, TerraGirl, MIBAlienhunter, The Devious Max Power, me, Team Showstop, Ranboze (kneeling) Not pictured but with us: Anna and JCee.
Showstop led the crew this time with his 4-wheeling expertise and knowlege of the lay of the land. The weather was warm and breezy, and the wildflowers were really starting to bloom. Ranboze took a number of excellent photographs, including one of our shoes thoroughly coated with yellow pollen. Please take a moment to check out her photos:

I’m impressed: she even knows the names of all the flowers!
We were all brought together this weekend for an event hosted by the Wheeler Dealers, who are prolific and creative in their hides!
TRASH in..CACHE out!
At one cache that we actually couldn’t find, I saw what I thought was the container… but it moved!
Other caches to highlight from the weekend are:
Tortoise Island – not a real one, this time
Heavy Metal – a big yard full of quality metal sculpture art
Log Only – yep, I got to sign the LOG (with a felt pen)
Super Size Me – on an abandoned drive-through board
Lost and Found – featured a truly unique Cache to “find”
California Welcome Center – Yucca Valley – check out the great paint job on the container and the many displays for visitors
My caching week continued with a quick local find by the inimitable Mighty Dee:
