Congrats. Shunra on your 400th!

You lucky guy! Caching in Europe. How much fun that would be!

Congrats to Shunra. When I saw the mention of a lame micro I thought you might have done this one, which is right on the Thames. I don't have any finds in the Eastern Hemisphere, but I do have this one and this one that are right on the Prime Meridian. It was really cool to walk down the meridian using the coordinate display on my eTrex yellow to go from one to the other at Greenwich.

One I really enjoyed in London was St. Etheldreda's church. Did you happen upon that one?

Sounds like you had a great time. It is too bad that most London caches are virtuals though.

Yep, I did that one too, but I didn't consider that one lame. At least not in comparison. And it was a beautiful spot, unlike in Hyde Park, where there is one under every other bench.

Gotta leave something for next time... I'll probably rent a bicycle then, though.

Yep - a few minutes after midnight. It was the first of the 36 caches of May 22nd.

There were a few virtuals, (many of which were inacessible at night), and some virtual multis leading to a real cache, but most of what I did in London were micros.

I did not check the date on the Green Park/Hyde Park cache that you did, but I don't think that was in place when I was there a year ago. The reason I thought Father Thames might be considered lame is that I could see it from 150 feet away due to the blue color. It was not a very good camo job. That may have changed.

When you get to Greenwich on another trip also consider A Shipless Mast in the Docklands. It is a tupperware (or equivalent) and not too far from the tube station near the Thames pedestrian tunnel to Greenwich. It is actually closer to the tube station two stations before the Greenwich stop on the Docklands Light Railway.

Edit: spelling

Yeah, I've been to London, but 1979. Great city...very interesting. Now you get to add geocaching to things to do over there and that's what I'm gonna do when I do get back over there. It'll be my tour guide.

If I had really really wanted to, I could have taken one of those park benches. There's so many of them around that nobody would have noticed. And chances are that there would have been a micro sticking underneath as well.

John Evergreen is joining me, Cathy and Blindleader tommorrow for some caching in Issaquah. We usually just do Mult's or Hard Evil's together.

I'm trying to talk EGH into doing a 1/1 for his milestone! <_<

BTW WeightMan... I like your saying on the bottom of your posts. I am my own worst critic about my grammar and writing. But hey, isn't that why Engineers invented spell-checkers?

I'm sure this can be better answered by some cachers who have done some good ones down there.
There are two in Oregon that I hear alot about. Not sure of the GC #'s though.

One would be the place that the first Geocache was ever placed. I think they have a small monument there.

Another is called The Pipeline (I think). It's suppose to be great! Evergreen or EraSeek.. you guys know about this one don't you?

Thanks KFam and everyone else who's put out those 400+ boxes!

Much fun has been had by all.

But, shhh.... the milestone hasn't quite been reached in my mind...

For the purists, I'm going to pick up my 400th box on Sunday at Slinger's not-oft-visited *rivers and lakes and am QUITE looking forward to spending some time caching with Just Mike and Slinger once again! (There will be no biking involved so we should be o.k.)
