Well, I do have a reason. I am planning for MOGA 2013 to be my #3,000. I have 
47 caches to find before logging the event proper for the milestone. The route 
I have chosen will make it easy to do without gaming the number in any way, but 
choosing slightly different routes will net me more caches, but would 
necessitate me logging MOGA when it comes to cache #3,000 before continuing on. 
I lean to doing what I have done in the past and log them as they truly are, 
but I was just curious what others do...

Are you just curious or are you planning something?

Anyway, I've only had one big milestone at 1000 (although #100 meant a lot to 
me).  I wanted it to be the Slurpin' Soup event.   I attended the event and 
found some other caches all on the same day. It wasn't exactly #1000 but when I 
logged the group of caches for that day I logged them in the order that would 
make the event 1000.

At the rate I cache I won't have to worry about another milestone for a LONG
