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 caches all over the world. He started caching in October 2005. He was the first to find and log the Texas County Challenge which has a cacher find a cache in all 254 counties in Texas. He also worked with Groundspeak to develop the Texas Open Spaces Program which allowed all cachers 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.
