Oh man- thread has been dead for almost a year! Well, my friends, today I revive it! #800 was GCQANE, The Young Hero, in New Lexington, Ohio. It took tremendous amounts of planning, diligence and self restraint to land an MMM on the right cache hit. But we did it! YAY!

Taking a page out of ScoutingWV's book - I'm planning something SPECIAL for 854.

Our senses of humor are waning....I aims to revive this thread ONCE MORE.

Got #1300 tonight....yup- magnetic micro! Picturesque - in Wayne County. Also happens to be our 55th county completed. Woohoo!

I have worked VERY hard NOT to be a member of the MMM club. Several times I have sat on x99 caches for days while new caches were published around me so that I could get my milestones at significant caches. Its just the way I play the game. 1/1 keyboxes in guardrails are fair game for me too, not above that, but I like to make my milestones cool hikes or really hard ones. However, I still cannot claim exemption. After a look at my milestones I see that I did not adopt this wonderful philosophy early enough and milestone #200 was GCZTK5 I-77 Southbound Rest Stop and #300 was GC1GZGV Elite (in Parkersburg)...I believe both were park and grab magnets.
Indecision is the key to flexibility.

I >>normally<< have lost count and don't know where I am. #1000 was an exception ("Because it's There"-and it was a toughie for fat boy). #1300 just happened to fall in place - it was finishing 55 that made it special.

But just in order to garner strange looks and derision, I will aim for magnets when aware of found count. I'm wierd like that.

Well I am posting to get my 3 seconds of fame. My #200 was at Seven Generations - GC16KKT - on First Street in Harrisburg, PA and I found it on 9/20/2008. It was a bison tube with a magnet attached to it and stuck to a large metal structure.

Checked the records and we qualify for the mighty Triple M Club. #200-GC1YFAM-Sparky the Fire Dog and #400-GC2CEVJ-Fallen Soldiers. Pay more attention to cache title than cache type. Just can't wait to see what #600 turns out to be. :question:

As I read this I had to take a look and see if I made it or not and it seems that I do and guess who the cache owner is, none other than WVHunter himself. It was number 300 for me GCZ2YF and the cache name is Spotted pony :eek:

I haven't found a micro in almost 2 months ... unless you count the cache last month that was changed from a small to a micro after I had found it (had to open my big mouth) ... and today, while finding all 7 cache sizes in a single day, I saved the dreaded micro for last. Yes, it was magnetic and it just so happened to be #3100. :roll:

Got another Magnificent Magnetic Milestone today ... #300. But this time it was my 300th DNF. Could see the cache, but the recently crumpled guardrail made it inaccessible. Well, without a big crowbar anyway.
