Because I wrote a lengthy log on the cache page I figured I would share that log here instead of typing out a story here. So here it is:
"Wow, it has been a long road to this one. Over the course of 3 years we have cached and cached, but never really gave any thoughts to finishing this particular challenge. I remember in October of 2011 I had decided to go for Giant Pickles challenge for 50 straight days of caching, and went for 107 days total... I kick myself in the arse for stopping there, cause I totally could have gone the 366 straight days with ease.. But sadly that is impossible now.
But it was in September of 2012 that I decided to look into this particular challenge to fill in the 366 cumulative calendar grid on geocaching.com... That looked easy enough, and when I looked at the calendar grid I was disappointed to still have so many empty days to do even with the previous 107 days done.
The biggest obstacle for me was the fact that I am a fair weather cacher. My wife is cool with caching in any weather, but I hate hate hate rain. But I braved it up and worked away at it. And that was when I hit the biggest snag of all.
Looking at the grid again I realized I was missing a day on the very day I was to get married... July 13, 2013! There was no way I was going to find a cache on that day right? WRONG!
Not only did I hold a photo flash mob event for the local and not so local cachers, I also attended a CITO in the morning of it and got a FTF on a tribute cache placed for me and my wife... Now how is that for dedication lol!
Anyway, by this point I only had a few more cache days to get done, and on 07/26/2013 my wife and I headed out the door to get "GCG56G - Shortstop" by Roswell. This was the last day we needed to have the grid complete and have cache finds on every possible day.
With that done I decided to save the find of this challenge cache for the first day of the "31 Days of Geocaching" on August 1, 2013.
So today arrived, I awoke early to get a head start on the day. Tried to wake the wife up, but she wanted to sleep a bit more and told me to go by myself. Did my homework and decided to park at a little known shoulder and trailhead a mere 470+ meters away. Walked my way to GZ, but the GPSr lied to me and had me walking in circles in the wrong area. Decided to look at the map: zooming all the way in, and realized that the GPSr had me a good 70 meters too far. As a hint, use my picture of what I found nearby to find it easier.
Once I did that, it was a super easy find and the cache was soon in hand. Signed the log, snapped a few pics and was on my way.
Thanks for the challenge, it was worth it."
