- Hey everyone, thanks for asking....Texas was fun, lots of great folks and interesting places. Frankly GW4 was not as well organized as GW3. Lots of caches and lots of people and lots of bad drivers (you think CA is bad)! We are again talking about the possibility of doing GW5 in northern CA. We got the caches, we got the people who will help (right?), we just need to find the right spot... some where between Chico and Lodi ought to be good! LOL We could do this! We (RCGDS, NUTS, maybe BADGE and CVC) plan to submit a proposal to the powers that be, we'll be looking for some folks with ideas (what you'd like if you went to a GW event, etc... from both folks that have been and those who have not).We saw long horns (really long horns!), came across a cotton mouth (water moccasin) snake at a cache, had fun with chiggers and ticks and poison ivy. Think RoamingBull's brothers were on every street corner! ;o) We did a cache near Texarkana... Nix Creek Series... and you'd never guess who logged it about May 3rd.... bobolu!!! YES, OUR bobolu!!! It truly is a small world of geocachers!! We'll get some pictures up shortly. Saw the "grassy knoll"... very touching!! Lots of cowboy history down there. Hot and muggy! Plenty of great caches and some not so great! One day we walked the bridge out of Rockwall northeast of Dallas. It's a 2+ mile bridge over a lake and 20 caches along the way... now THAT was a series (and it sure stuck out on GSAK maps) !!! Lots of historical/virtual caches. Everybody seemed real cordial and friendly except maybe on the road! Saw some squished armadillos, but no live ones, and geckos and bugs we'd never seen before... we stayed in Waxahachie and there were fireflies there... we loved them!! Don't think we'll be complaining about caches being placed in poison oak anymore... down there it must be a rule!! We now have added 4 new states to our list of states cached in... TX, AR, LA, and OK.Food was great most places, and the highlight for us was dinner at "the Plantation" in Waxahachie... a haunted old house. Jacqi swore something poked at her leg... twice during dinner. (It wasn't me!!) :o) Michelle swore the doors were moving back and forth. TexMex in Texarkana was pretty good too.Coins were big this year as compared to last, that was one major change. Communication hit some bumps at GW4, something we'd really want to do well should we take on the task of GW5. Anyway, that's it in a NUTS shell (what else?) catch us later and I'm sure we will have stories to embellish. Later, Don & Jacqi aka Rock&Crystal----- Original Message -----From: RaymondSent: Thursday, June 01, 2006 8:09 AMTo: email@example.comSubject: [NUTS] Geowoodstock?!?!?!?!?

- MeoGeo's got the record!! Vomiting in three states. Crazy4Bats only lost it in Florida and Georgia last year. We teased her the whole time in Texas because there were Waffle Houses all over the place... the place she believed she got sick in Florida! LOL We too, got to see the largest peanut... however, we have it on good authority there is actually a bigger one in Georgia... but it was the biggest for along time, AND anyway, it is a virtual!!! :o)----- Original Message -----From: EscapadesSent: Thursday, June 01, 2006 5:22 PMTo: firstname.lastname@example.orgSubject: Re: [NUTS] Geowoodstock?!?!?!?!?Hi Raymond, thanks for asking!We flew into Oaklahoma City on Thursday (we actually flew over the Grand Canyon...that was neat!) and spent Friday visiting the Oaklahoma City Memorial (where the Federal building was bombed). What an awsome memorial! We then traveled towards Dallas, making sure to swing by and bag the virtual cache at the World's Largest Peanut (just had to do it!)We decided to go to the Friday night meet and greet that had been listed as going until sundown and when we arrived, there was nobody around. We soon found out that at the last minute, they changed the location. Even though the new coordinates has been updated on the web page, we didn't get them because we were in route. Several others showed up as well and then we found some handwritten coordinates that had been left behind of where the new location was so off we went. We found the new location but not very many people there so we stayed a while then went to visit Lil Devil and Angel who were camping in the area.The GeoWoodstock event was not exactly in the same league with GWIII but was fun anyway. It's always fun to meet other geocachers and renew acquaintances with those you already know. Several people that we meet in Florida attended so we got to visit with them again. Several of us Californian cachers took a little side trip over to find the first cache placed in Texas. Lil Devil and Crystal had to test out the green briar patch...we appreciated them sacrificing themselves to the cache gods so that we could claim this cache as a find. We had a very good day but boy were we tired at the end!Sunday, we visited the JFK memorial in Dallas then vwent to Fort Worth. Maggie got to sit on a real Long Horn. We ran into JoeGPS there in Fort Worth and he indicated that California was certainly going to be considered for GW5. He is the person who started the GeoWoodstock events and has a lot of say regarding where the GW events will be held so I believe that if a good proposal is submitted, we can be the hosts! It is a big undertaking but I know that we can certainly pull something together that will be much better than what Texas offered. In fairness, JoeGPS did tell us about somethings that occurred a couple weeks before GW4 that caused things to not run as smoothly as it should have. Considering the problems, things went well. (California cachers can do better though!)We headed home on Monday, our little MeoGeo was sick the whole day. She vomited in Oaklahoma, Arizona, and California all in one day...that has to be some type of record!Anyway, all in all, it was a great trip! I will post pictures on the NUTS page in a GW4 photo album ASAPGail (Escapades)
