RE: [CentralTexasGeocachers] How's THIS for a GC number??? "WEEE"!!!!!!
MessageThat's right, come have a sWEEEt time out in the country in the Texas heat on June 24th.I am really looking forward to hosting this event to honor Wayne and all he has done forgeocachers in Central Texas and geocaching in general. We will have lots of activities tokeep you busy like mending my road, installing my fence.... ok, maybe not... how about...geocaching!We'll have lots of temporary caches placed and a new, permanent night cache!We have plenty of room for parking (and camping under the stars on Friday and Saturday nightsif you wish). We will have a port-a-potty available and more in the house if needed... (it's about900 feet from the parking/camping area to the house....)Wayne and Candy will be bringing their new open bit BBQ and we'll be roasting corn, hot dogs,hamburgers, and if you find some fresh road kill, heck scoop it on up and put it in on ice tokeep it fresh... ;-)When it gets too hot, take a nice refreshing dip in my pick up truck... that's right, don't miss yourchance to experience a real redneck swimming pool - a pond liner in the back of a pick-up truck!(Make sure and bring your cameras!) Sipping chilled wine while lounging in the pick-up swimmingpool under the stars... as the embers of the bonfire start to fade... A perfect end to a perfect day....We will have limited electricity available (two outlets) and one water faucet.There are trails to hike and clearings to stop and rest in (not that a geocacher needs rest whenhot on the trail of the next find....) There's plenty of animal life here... lots of cottontail rabbits andsongbirds and yes, we have fire ants, scorpions and I've killed a few copperheads... we have a hawkthat lives up high in a pine tree behind the house....In the weeks leading up to the event I will be treating existing fire ant mounds, but please be carefuland consider putting your tent up while you have daylight to see .... we also have lots of shady areasfor tents also...If you want to go and do your own thing, Bastrop State Park is 15 minutes away and has 6 Active caches in it.Bastrop has 5 caches of its own an there's two more in nearby Buescher State Park. Or perhaps you want tobring a boat out to Lake Bastrop or canoe the Colorado River (you can put in at Fisherman's Park).There's lots to do....Now we could use just a little help to ensure a fun time for all... Please RSVP using the cache page andlet me know if you'll be bring anything for the dinner such as a watermelon, side dishes, plates, plastic ware,cups, paper towels, chips, snacks etc....If you have a football or horseshoes to toss or a Frisbee to fling, or any other ideas, bring them....And no, I did not pay for this waypoint! It was just meant to be. Fate... Now you don't want to dismiss fate do you?So write it down... GCWEEE !!!See you there! Errr... I mean here....Doc Geo(Barry)-----Original Message-----

Yep, that's right! GCWEEE is the number for Wayne's 5K Celebration.
Mark your calendars for the 24th for an ALL DAY AFFAIR. Include Friday
and Saturday night camping if you are so inclined. Activities will
include finding illegal caches, as many as we can cram on to 10 acres,
swimming in a Texas Redneck swimming pool (a pond liner in a pickup
truck), eating a good ol' fashioned Texas BarBeQue, and seeing how many
Ribs Wayne can balance on the top of his head (not really, NONE of us
wants to suffer through THAT!!!). I'll let Barry fill in more details.
