Thanks for the info. I wasn't able to do any caching in Morgantown though. Never fear, I'll be back soon enough.

After a couple more finds today, my matrix on the previous page has been updated ... down to 14.

  • I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make when they go flying by.

GCX9B5, PYOW PYOW HACK HACK HACK, looks like a good group effort if anyone can figure it out. It's a 4.5D, 5T. wvangler found that if you google the title, it's monkey speak for, "Let's get out of here". From the logs, the terrain looks like a lot of fun.

I looked at that one when the FTF was still available and never came up with anything more than "Let's get out of here." If someone can get more than that (and has the equipment needed for the final), I'll be glad to join in.

I'm down to 13. I updated my matrix on the first page to reflect the empty squares.

Now to go make some extra money so I can chip in for gas. :???:

Wow! Looks remarkably similar to mine ... and will be even more so after Chimney Top!

By the way, can everybody see the matrix in my original post? Not the one in SSPG's quote of my colored one, but the black carbon fiber-looking one in my first post. For some reason, I didn't see it when I was online at work today, but I can see it from home (the image is stored on my server here at home). :?:

Successful completion of Chimney Top Cache yesterday leaves one less empty square on my matrix.

12 left.

I updated my chart. I knocked off another 5 terrain. I now have 11 squares to go. I headed for Pittsburgh with 5 Fizzy caches loaded and only had time for 3. Of those I only found 1 :sad: I tried 2 different 5D, 1.5T caches and couldn't find either. I'd rather do 5T than 5D.

Chimney Top filled one more in for me, too. I'm at 13.

I know what you mean about the D5's ... a real pain in the arse! :evil:

Good day today with SSPG and CLCombat. I knocked off 4 more squares and got to use my climbing gear. :grin: :cool: My matrix on page one has been updated ... 9 more to go! :mrgreen:

Which 5D/1.5T did you get? I DNFed two of those last weekend. I did have a good day Saturday. I went after 3 caches on my Fizzy list and got all three. I got 2.5D/5T, a 4.5D/2.5T, and a 4.5D/5T.

Went all the way to freaking BFE, Virginia to try to get GC1TQCB Needle in a Haystack (5/3.5). Spent 1.5 hours on it before it got dark. So ticked off right now. I'm in Martinsburg tonight, at least I hope to knock out some VIPP stamps tomorrow to edge closer to a jacket.

We did The Legend of Geeky Ssid for the D5/T1.5. It's right between the 2 that you DNF'd last week.

We may have to look at the D4.5/T2.5 that you did.

I hope to log the 4 we found later today if I can get the time.
