For the love of the FTF


For the love of the FTF

    I received an email from my brother (ISME1922) today letting me know that he had found 62 FTF’s on a new power trail near his place in Green River, WY. As the author of the great blog site WWW.IGOGEOCACHING.COM he was stoked to get all of these FTF’s. He grabbed 9 late night finds after they were published and 53 more on 5-8-2013 before he had to turn around and go to work for the day. We here at livelovecache.com are stoked for him. This is a huge milestone since one year ago there were not even 62 caches within 20 miles of his house.
          The new power trail is called the  Ghost Rail to ATL series. This was placed on an old rail road bed that has since been torn up. The history of the rail bed was that South Pass was used by United States Steel to reach their Atlantic City iron ore mine. This 76 mile railroad was operated between August 1962 and October 1983. The crossing was at 7550' and the mine was at 8430'. To see more info or to view the caches you can look up GC48GHM.

These FTF’s were hard earned for ISME1922. The weather in Wyoming can be horrible and today was one of those days. He said the rain and snow made the old dirt road very slick to drive. He slide off the trail a few times and though he might get stuck many more. He said by the time he got home his truck was covered in mud inside and out. We all all know that it’s a small price to pay for the thrill of a FTF.

    On on of his slide off the road adventures he accidentally ran over on of the geocaches. It sank in the mud and was not damaged but it made it a little harder to find. For the most part he said this was a very easy to find series and he cannot wait to go get the rest of them. With the thought of over 300 caches still to be found in the series I almost want to go out and help find the rest of them. I think I will just let the victory of this run be his.

     Congrats to ISME1922 on you excellent day of geocaching. may there be many more days like this in your future bro. To all our great readers you should hop over to his blog WWW.IGOGEOCACHING.COM  and let him know what you think.

I just talked to Isme1922 and he has been back out on the trail to find more. He now has 141 FTF's from it. He has plans to go out and get a few more. Awesome job bro keep up the good work.
