DarrylW4 & Firefly03 Break 2,500 Finds

We hit our 2,500th cache find on Saturday at the Burton Veteran Memorial (GC9875) virtual cache during a swing across the tip of the thumb. We started the day with 2,499 finds, found 46 caches during the 14 hour trip for a total at the end of the day of 2,545. We're looking forward to hitting the 3,000 soon, and is calling for that milestone to fall by the end of this summer if we keep up our current pace. It's very possible -- we're only 186 finds from hitting our total for 2008, and 277 from our all-time best of 801 in 2007. I'd like to have at least one calendar year where we would break 1,000 finds. That's only 476 more finds for the year. Perhaps we can pull it off in 2009.
