A gift from the Frog



I recently received an unexpected gift from Groundspeak, the company that owns and runs geocaching.com. It's a glass award to mark my five years of being a volunteer reviewer for their web site. During those 5+ years I have published close to 6,000 geocaches, which comes to approximately 100 per month. I don't know how many others I have reviewed but not approved, but I'm guessing it would be an additional 10 percent to 25 percent. Sometimes you encounter people who just seem to have a grudge against me, geocaching.com and the world in general. But by far it's been an enjoyable "job" and it's been great to meet and/or talk to so many interesting geocachers.

Congratulations, Ken! A well deserved honor for all of your efforts.

Yeah we all decided to chip in to get you something. We each threw in a little cache here and a little cache there. :-)

Cool award! I'm proud to have been a part of both the 6,000 approved and the 10-25% not approved:) You do good work!

That's a neat award Ken. You've earned it. What's that about a "grudge"? lol If you think about that or take some time to look it up, it will come to ya.

Keep up the great work!!!

Ha! No, I wasn't referring to your cache called The Grudge.
