26705Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] So long ... farewell ...
- Aug 1, 2008I was also on that fateful mission and was glad to see you coming back
out of semi-retirement. Really sad to see you guys leaving us, but
definitely wishing you the best in your new location.
I'd love to adopt some of those fun caches, but so many of them are on
the other side of the planet (ie, north Austin!). ;)
I definitely 2nd the idea for a send-off event. Even if we can't get
an official GC listing, an informal one organized through the group
would be a good idea.
And it looks like the next time I take the train from NY to see my
friend in Connecticut, I need to plan some extra time to go find an
awesome filler cache or two!
