We were hoping to be a part of this planning meeting but were out of town and hope that the RCGDS will keep all of us in the loop. We too have been to two GeoWoodstocks and had a blast. We think we can do this and put on a heck of a gathering. It will take the planning and cooperation and volunteer efforts of lots of folks on lots of levels. We (Rock&Crystal) will be all over this if it comes to Northern CA. We got the cache density (and can certainly do some more), we have the airports (folks do come from all over the world) and what we need is an area with motels and camping available too, as folks will road trip from all over the country, too. We can probably expect 1500+ cachers for this mega event, ESPECIALLY if it's in CA... We go the cachers, too!! From our recent experience at GW4 we would suggest that "communication" should be our key watch word as we put this together to make it the best ever GW. What say you other NUTS??? R&C

I'm all for it. I'm willing to help on whatever level
I'm needed. I say let's do this. I'm going next year
wherever it is anyhow but it sure would be nice to
have it in the backyard. We definately have the
density of caches for it. Blucruz
