Jasmer ChallengeActually, as of today according to one source, there are only 115 active caches worldwide hidden in 2000. And I found 9 of them - the last two I needed this past week!
Popular in the United States, the Jasmer asks geocachers to find one cache hidden in every month since geocaching began in May 2000. To give you a sense of the difficulty of this challenge, there are under 150 caches hidden in 2000 still enabled. Geocaching road trip, anyone?

We did make a point of visiting the Indiana State Museum. They are known for their 92 County Walk exhibit. Encircling the building and the grounds, each county of Indiana contributed a piece of artwork that represented their county (Fountain County contributed a fountain. Henry County contributed a 3D plane. LaGrange County had these cool pig reliefs). We walked around this mammoth structure hunting out this artwork in the dark - such a huge variety. Some pieces were embedded high up on the walls. Some inlaid in the steps down to the river. Look high! Look low! Look around that corner!
The one below made me laugh out loud. As our flashlights panned up the museum wall, about 3 stories up we lit up the Delaware County exhibit! Hard to see in the grainy photo, but, yes, that is Garfield staring back at us! What a jolt that caused! Delaware County is the birthplace of the Garfield comic strip! What a hoot!
