One of TXGA’s most beloved cachers, txoilgas spent his entire life in the oil-and-gas industry, which allowed him to hide and find geocaches all over the world. He started caching in October 2005. He was the first to find and log the Texas County Challenge, which requires a find in all 254 Texas counties. He also worked with Groundspeak to develop the Texas Open Spaces Program, which allowed all geocachers in Texas to own and maintain any cache in a remote location instead of one single cache owner. (And Texas has got some remote locations!) We lost him doing what he loved to do; hiding and finding caches in Oklahoma while working on the Oklahoma County Challenge.
