I'm thinking I need to introduce Kabs to "Glacier's" number. Smile

I think Kabs already knows how to count to 10. Laughing

Just found "Love Shack" GC1G0F7 today.
That makes our total finds 749 on the 49th day of consecutive finds streak and it also happens to be my 49th birthday.

Random amusements about my current find count, 601. It's the first prime number after 600 (the last one being 599, so 600 is snugly surrounded by them), and a centered pentagonal number.

As an added bonus, the year 601 of our calendar equals year 8 in the Bengali calendar... 8 being my favourite number Very Happy.

Also, if my find count was my credit score, I'd have just barely squeezed past the "high risk" category Razz.

Maybe not quite so arbitrary, but my next find is apparently going to be number 666. Methinks I'll have to come up with an amusing cache to fill that spot Razz.

That'd be a perfect one for you Kabs. Especially in winter, since you can cross the river and shorten your walk. Careful on the x-country ski trails. Bush crash instead, like you love to do anyways. Smile

Damn... that would have been awesome. Wish I'd have known of that cache days ago, or even last weekend. As it turns out, I'll be full-on busy between now and to tomorrow... so number 666 is going to end up being the event at Assiniboine Park Razz

Besides, original documents indicate the number of the beast was 616 anyway Razz

Speaking of arbitrary numbers, it's interesting to note that our current membership sits at 1138.

There are enough geeks around here that'll know the number is important in current pop-culture thanks to George Lucas. After his movie THX1138, the THX became a brand unto itself and the number 1138 kept showing up as obscure references in his movies.

I'm on the cusp of finding post 711. Anyone know of any caches hiding at a 7-11 anywhere? Or a slurpee-based cache somehow maybe?
