A High in Florida challenge would have a goal of 4,000 feet instead of 400,000 feet Smile The highest point in Florida is 345 feet above MSL. There is a virtual cache at that point: It's All Downhill From Here (GC7199).

I used to have a cache (GC1096R) hidden at the highest point in Broward County (where I live), at an elevation of 29 feet above MSL. Unfortunately, it was muggled when a homeless person made a campsite at the location.

Great show. Here is a challenge cache like what was talked about using the cacher names as an alphabet.

I'll add my voice to trailer hitches as bumpers being a bad idea. A few years ago I was in a big interstate pileup. I was towards the back and managed to stop in time, and thought I was safe but then I was hit from behind and pushed forward into the truck in front of me. His trailer hitch went right through my radiator. Then he accidentally released his brake and jerked forward... and took my radiator and most of my front grill with him. Totalled my car.

On the plus side 17 cars total in the wreck and no injuries.

Great show - some good safety tips. Blue is a triathlete and wears an ankle ID when she's out training. Might be a good idea for solo cachers as well? They have a lot of nice options to wear on your body or your shoe.

You forgot to mention to your listeners that a foon is the opposite of a spork.

Also, a foon is a melee weapon in the online RPG called Kingdom of Loathing. Does Sean play KOL?

(FWIW - KOL is how I discovered geocaching.)

Foon is also the name of a California cacher. http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=db17e537-c51f-4490-91f5-a1bfade2b15e

I've got the bags packed and heading out the door to Kansas. Just a quick question. What's higher in elevation, the LPC at the Walmart or the LPC at McDonalds?

Seriously though, as cool as the challenge cache sounds, keeping up with what the top 100 highest elevation caches are could be a real challenge on its own. If I lived in area where this type of challenge could exist I'd sure encourage someone to create the challenge so I could go find it!

Re: Florida's lack of elevation, Sonny could NOT stop commenting about it when he came to visit me while we were dating. All he could say was, "It's SO flat and there are NO hills!!" Very Happy

That's totally true ... if you stay near the coast. But Florida has a rather hilly (comparatively) center running down most of the peninsula along US-27 that most Floridians never bother to see. One high spot along that ridge is Iron Mountain - located near the historic Bok Tower Gardens - and topping off at a whopping 295 feet above MSL.

Oh, wait - I forgot you were from Orlando before you were from San Diego. You know of the hills, then Smile

Now if we could just get Sean to pose a phoon while holding his foon.
