G and J
I know that I have met G and J on more than one occasion. Or, it could be old age creeping up on me. Snooping around their profile I see that they have one event claimed, so I must be hallucinating. I know for sure that I did see them there and had a quick chat with them. Very lovely people. OK, back to snooping around their profile. (BTW, one of the perks of doing these right ups is that I get to check out everyone's profiles). Here's an interesting stat: Over 99% of their finds are traditional caches. I know you might not think it's interesting, but I would find it hard to hit a 99% milestone in anything! Read on to learn more about October's Cacher of the Month.
