Where's Dwight the Puzzling Monkey?

After extensive discussion about how to share where Dwight will be, Dwight, Mrs. LANMonkey, and Mr. LANMonkey have come to the agreement that his plans for the day will be posted as a note on his cache page, and as long as he's with the LANMonkeys, he'll "dip" in most caches he visits. That way, anyone interested in finding or following this silly simian will know what he's been up to, and where he's planning on going.

As the LANMonkeys don't cache by smartphone, it's challenging to post/respond to updates in real time.

Dwight the Puzzle Monkey - Watershed Park

So tonight Piggy, the LANMonkeys, and for a brief time, Dwight the Puzzling Monkey, are caching in Watershed Park in Delta. We'll likely get there around 7:00pm, and look forward to grabbing a few in the park as dusk settles in and then going for one or both of the night caches there. Thanks for checking in! Cache safely, and cache often. Team LANMonkey

100 Geocaches in 1 Day



Team LANMonkey & Donner teamed up once more (we do that a lot) to see if we could find 100 geocaches in 1 day on our bikes. We had a slight advantage in that we hadn't cached the Boundary Bay Dyke Trail area yet, so that was over 70 possible finds right there. However, it was also a long ride!

So why would we try and find 100 or more caches in one day? Mrs. LANMonkey has her eye on a challenge cache (Your Caching Chronology - GC42TRJ) and the requirements are 100 caches in one day, 300 caches in one month, and 100 continuous days of finds. Since June gets an extra weekend this year (does it every year? I don't know.) we figured it would be the perfect month to try for the 300 - and what better way to start on 300 in a month than to get 100 on the first day of that month?

Yeah, we're a little nuts for our geocaching.

Cache safely, and cache often!
The LANMonkeys
