this past Saturday, I hosted the Lonely Cache Game Event in Wisconsin Dells. Due to the spotty weather, I wasn't sure what the turnout would be, but ended up with nearly 40 people attending. the only downside was the lack of LCG participants that actually attended. only one other team from the top 10 made it to the event. even so, everything went smoothly. besides the coins and other prizes I brought, Team Deejay donated 10 more, plus MrRRKing donated quite a few ready-to-hide containers. we ended up with 32 door prizes for 23 teams, so everyone went home happy. Deejay also had a chance to distribute a few coins to the monthly winners who hadn't received them yet, and I mailed the remaining coins to the rest of the top 5.
although I won't be playing nearly as much this year, I'm already looking forward to next year's event, although we'll see who steps up to host this time around.

this past week i finally surpassed 2000 finds while on our honeymoon in Belize. it took quite a bit of planning for it to happen down there... throughout december i slowed down my finds so that i didn't get to close before the trip, but as i neared the departure date, i realized i probably wouldn't have a chance to find as many in Belize as i originally thought, so had to go out an extra day and find 10 more. it ended up working perfectly. we found a cache in Guatemala and then 7 in Belize. for number 2000 we rented a golf cart to explore the island, and we ended up on the very south end getting 7 caches along the way. i doubt i'll ever have another milestone cache like this regardless of number...
