I'm so tired, I can hardly write! Trey, Tanya, Chuck and
I cached big in Yuba City today with a large group of mostly San
Diegoans. At the end of the day, 7 of us were still standing, and we had
127 caches logged! That's all of our personal records! It was lots
of fun, but I'm glad to be almost asleep.
The actual GeoWoodstock event was AMAZING! They were really, really
organized and had so many activities and seminars. Trey and I sat in on
the Advanced GSAK class and decided we do things fairly well. There were
a few things we learned. One of the tidbits from the Basic GPS class was
that the signals don't pass through your body well, so if you carry your GPS
on your body, you may have some signal lag once you get near the cache and
hold it out in your hand. The event was held at a pumpkin farm that is
set up like a party/event/fairground type space. It was very nice, since
I had worried that a private venue wouldn't be able to hold us all. Not
sure what the final attendance was.
Jeremy was there. I heard he was supposed to be manning the serving
line for dinner, but I don't remember seeing him. I DID direct him to
the porta-potties earlier in the day, though. I guess that's my brush
Paul did so-so in the Poker Tournament and Tanya finished second in
Bunco. I was one of the 50 cachers selected to be in the photo
collage where you had to guess the person's geocaching name.
The big downer of the day was that it was very cold and windy and I had
to change from my skirt to jeans. I guess finding the Geocacher of my
Dreams just wasn't meant to happen Saturday. Sigh. We cached
all the way to the event and all the way home. The caches between the
event and Sacramento were so well visited that there was absolutely no
mistaking where you should stand to find the cache, but it made for lots of
impromptu meeting up on the road and gave it a really festive
atmosphere. I was SOOOoooooo frozen by the time I got back to the
Oh, and NudeCacher was there.....with his clothes on!
I'm going to BED!
