I believe we have a record holder amongst us. I just noticed that The Lil Otter has hunted 44 caches in the last three days, so I did a little research.

Lil Otter is averaging over 100 caches per month, which I believe is far in excess of the next closest rate on the geocaching.com forums. There have been discussions on how long it has taken cachers to reach their centenial cache, and I don't believe anyone did it in just 48 days!

The next 85 were done in just 10 days!

Well Done Lil Otter!

(slips on a wolve's pelt)
What is she.. some kind of nut? (grins)

The hour is late and I was just made aware of this topic.. I'm a lil' shocked that my activities have been noted.. I truly enjoy caching and did warn a few that once I ran out of ones near me that I'd be chewing down Milwaukee like a piece of cheese (smiles).. but alas.. all caching 'vacations' must come to an end..
I'm heading back home tomor.. today.

But once I have my notes/fact sheets back in order.. expect more SE activities from me when I head down for GENCON.. (I'm staff/sysop online for a British-based company and I HAVE to be there) but will make it a point to sneak away to finish some of the caches that I didn't find time to do this go.. I'm as well looking forward to the picnic.. will sign up as soon as I get back to my own computer.

I really enjoyed the learning experience of how you 'southerners' do caches.. gave me alot of ideas to play with..
And.. last but not least.. I couldn't have done this without all those cachers that placed these creative caches.. just wish to thank the few that gave me a bit of help when I was stumbling...

FAST FACTS for my 11 day SE Wisc. Vacation..
-I dropped 12 pounds of sweat
-I put on 1635 miles on my car(still have to drive back home yet 160+)
-My dog is not a geocacher (grins)
-I left most days at 10am/returned at dark
-My excitement about caching and finally finding a sport that I can do solo has not faded..
-I'm not a fitness nut.. I just love the challenge
-I'm still afraid of heights
-I still refuse to snap my picture at caches
-I got injured four times
-I found stolen foodstamps and a bike at two caches (turned them into the police dept)
-I lost my reading glasses at the end of The Yellow Brick Road.. (chuckles)
-I ate once per day (my normal anyways) and made sure to eat at McD's to get toys (to trade) when I ordered a 'Happy Meal'
-I smoked like a fiend back at the car
-I drank 6 diet dews per day
-I walked alot..
-I was scared only once.. (I heard a man's voice in the bushes.. but it was Jthorson on the cell phone that I thought was hung up)

Hope this was a helpful training lesson for any that want to walk a mile in my shoes (grins)

~The Lil Otter

can anyone guess how many miles I walked these past 11 days?

Guess who's coming back down to Milwaukee area? (grins) I'll be around for Gencon gamers convention this week and will enjoy bringing my travel bugs to replace the ones that I took back home the last time I was there ...
oh and if any wish to watch the Otter in action (grins).. drop me an email with your phone number and if I'm free I'd would love to meet a few for a hunt or two.

I have not put together "amazing" or "complicated" caches for others while on the road.. but have realized that each place I travel to gives me an opportunity to repay those that worked so hard to set up all the ones in their backyards.. so naturally.. most will be simple virtuals or my famous micro's with no pencils (grins) because I'm so far from home with those. But it's these "Thank you" virtuals that I enjoy the most... to find something amazing near another cache that I can share.. really makes the trip exciting when I return home to set them up. I've just returned from a LONG weekend in Milw area again.. and have 7 more virtual/micros going live any day now.

I just wish that each that came up by my neck of the woods would find a special spot to share with me... it's always fun to find one close to home.. Most of my day trips takes HOURS of driving to get to a few to do. I won't give up this sport/hobby til winter shuts me in (otters HATE the cold).. and I am NOT ready to cross over to Minn/Iowa/Illinois til I have gotten to all the ones I feel safe heading to in Wisconsin. (sorry UPNORTH.. I push my limits solo most days caching.. but I do need a solid Cell phone connection and it's still tough for me to drive more than 2 hrs home after a full day's hunt).. but ya never know.. I'll head where Wisconsin Geocachers send me.. God, this is such a pretty State.. and I see NE just STUFFED with caches.. so tempted (grins).. can't we have a geo-campout up there in Sept?? (grins)while you all sleep I can play at my peak time (total nightowl otter).. that way my new FS.. thingy works for 2 miles and I can always hollar to get help off a ledge (grins)..

There's an interesting discussion going on in the geocaching.com forums about Lil Otter's many virtual and micro cache placements. Check it out at http://opentopic.groundspeak.com/0/OpenTopic?a=tpc&s=1750973553&f=3000917383&m=1080975135

Li'l Otter is making a sweep of the northern Wisconsin caches before the onset of winter. She has been away from the internet and will have a chance to respond when she returns to her access point.

I just found something I found amusing while looking at Lake Petenwell Cache by Kidzplay:

June 30 by The Lil Otter (397 found)
I really enjoyed the area too.. just so you know.. it's my 60th cache to find.. sorry that I beat you two (grins towards the Hotdogs)but I waited a couple days hoping you'd beat me to first finder..

Well I did honestly wait a few days (7 days to be exact).. kept looking at that cache and hoping that the Hotdogs off trail would log it soon.. finally realized that they weren't about to so I even wrote them.. (grins).. nothing worked so I had to go on the hunt.. didn't realize that I beat them by a few hours til I read their log post (smiles).. each cache has a special memory for me.. but this one really was fun knowing that they called me sneaky (grins).. so cute..
~The Lil Otter (almost retired for the winter but will brave it tomorrow.. oops today.. tagging along with Miata on his hunting trip here in my neck of the woods)

Seems the Hotdogs and Little Otter have a bit of a local rivalry going. If she waited 7 days, why couldn't she wait a couple more hours (sneaky otter)? It's fun following an otter around the state, but this is the closest we came on a hunt (I always put the time of day on our logs for just this purpose). Out in the boonies here we rarely meet other hunters on the trail unless we know they will be there. So in our spare time we otter watch.
