The short version of this story.....

I was on my first FTF hunt. It was in a park long after dark. I saw headlights where I didn't expect them so I took an alternate route through the woods to the cache. Found it. See a name on the log that I expected - a Beta tester - so I toss it aside. I'm all happy and do a quick trade. Then I look at the log. Who the heck are HiDude_98 and GeoMire? ARGH!!!!!!!

So now I'm not as happy. I'm walking back on the trail I had intended to take. I see headlamps on two people coming off a hillside. I start thinking - there's a puzzle cache up there. So when I get close to them I see a FJ Cruiser. I holler out "Are y'all geocachers?" They holler back "What do you think?" and both shine their headlamps on the license plate which had 3 letters - FTF.

It was there that I was introduced to HiDude_98 and GeoMire. And where I saw my first vehicle travel bug (the whole hood), and having multile GPSrs, logging by phone and even by laptop which was mounted inside.

Yes, these two guys are serious cachers. And at that time they were rockstars because I only had a handful. I was on cloud 9 when they invited me as a conolation prize to go grab a few caches. Never mind that this was a Tuesday night, after 10 PM, we all had to work tomorrow, and those two would have over an hour drive to get back home, and they weren't stopping when I left them.

That Tuesday night meeting was the inspiration for me and a couple cachers to go caching on Tuesday night like they were doing. That went on for over a year. We haven't done it in years, but every once in a while we talk about "getting the band back together."

Besides HiDude_98, Mrs Captain Picard and JMCz also live in my area. They all used to be rockstars with their bazillion finds. But now they're just Paul, Julie, and Jerry, and they're just as interested in hearing about our adventures as we are in theirs. And by "our" I don't mean just the people I know, but all the newbies as well. You don't have to have 1,000's or even 100's of finds to have some great stories to tell.

Great interview!
