Pete and I have visited 68 Centennial caches so far, and along the way have met some wonderful other cachers, such as "the tc life," that we met on Whidbey Island. We had been following them all day, logging the cache immediately after them. It's fun to finally run into a cacher and put a face with a name. Through a brief visit we learned they would be at the Ape Event, and we saw them again that day. Making friends, and having fun exploring beautiful places we might not have seen otherwise - one of the best benefits of geocaching.

We certainly enjoyed this GeoTour and hope that the State Parks Commission or some other group will partner with WSGA to do another similar tour. I know it was a lot of work by all, including the WSGA, and thank you for your hard work on this project.

We took a trip to Oregon during Labor Day week, and did a GeoTour around the Florence, OR area. After seeing how much thought and work went into our Centennial Parks GeoTour, I can tell you they could learn some lessons from us. GOOD JOB!!!! Thanks again to everyone involved in this project. Peach & Pete.
