I want to toot 2mstone's horn just a bit. I'm pretty sure he holds the record for the most miles ridden to deliver the cache.

I'm estimating he has ridden with the cache over 2500 miles....and all during winter months! That's around 5,000 miles both ways.

Now it's up to some of you other rugged Stromtroopers in NV, AZ, CA, WA, OR. Who's up to the challenge?
Awww shucks, thanks for the 'toot'.
On the way home yesterday I was actually wondering what it would feel like to carry the Cache on a warm day..............

Here's hoping someone from California nabs it next! The soonest I get four days off in a row is ten days away. I do not have buns of steel to put in high mileage days.

Made the chilly ride to St George, Utah and handed off the Med-Plt.
Thanks to you for the long trek 2mstone. Hope to see the Cache back in Utah in a year or so

Something that might be helpful is an
"I wan-it"
thread.
Riders (as some have done on this thread) would state a desire to carry the Cache.
That way maybe no one would be missed that wants to be a player.

Or...just encourage riders to do the same on this thread....

I like the idea... have a few 'buts' though. Monitoring is one of them, Title is another.
