      No offense to GeoMire - but Getting the Gooose was one of the worst days we had geocaching. We only did the last half, but every one of them was exactly like every other one. If you sole goal is to increase your smiley count, then the Goose is for you. But there are so many amazingly inventive caches in Austin (like Mike's science series or the multitude of very clever puzzle caches y'all have thought up in your diabolically -twisted minds), and caches in beautiful places (like Emma Long Park, BC Greenbelt, etc), that I would hate for an out-of-towner to think all we do here is tie non-camo'd film canisters to fence posts.
      That's my 2 cents. Like I said, the Goose series serves a purpose, but I don't think it is the best showcase for what geocaching in Austin is really like.

      If you have a car and a couple of hours, you might consider a series called "Getting The Goose".  You should be able to pick up 50 finds in about 2 hours and get back to Austin City Limits about 45 minutes later.  If you do the series, start at the NORTH end (Getting The Goose #1) and go from there in order, they are set out to work with the way the roads are laid out.
      Also, we will be having an event that Saturday (GeekFest) which starts early, so there may be an opportunity to stop by and say "Hi!" before going and catching the tunes.
      In any case, I hope that you have a great and wonderful Austin visit.  And stay hydrated! <G>

      Hi folks. I'm a geocacher from the Northern VA/DC area who will be in
      Austin for the ACL festival. I am going to t-r-y to put in some
      geocaching time early on Saturday and Sunday, and wanted some
      suggestions for interesting and probably not too hard caches in the
      area (given the limited time and lack of sleep I expect to have at
      those points....)

      And I would enjoy meeting any fellow cachers at ACL.

      Thanks for your time, and I look forward to meeting some of you in a
      couple of weeks.
