The Official 10th Anniversary NEPAG GeoEvent Photo
Which we aren't in, because we were, as usual, late. Because we were finding a geocache. LOL!
I am not sure we are really cut out for most geocaching events.
First, we are almost always late. When we travel an hour or more (and almost all the events we attend are 1.5-3 hours away) we geocache on our way there. That's kind of the point for us.
LOVE these smiley rocks for paperweights - what a great idea!
I picked up a paper for the photo scavenger hunt, and we did find several of the locations while in the park, but we quit when we couldn't find the "colored markers" at the locations, to fill in on the paper. There were probably instructions we missed, because, you know, we were late. As usual. :-) Not a big disappointment, we were more interested in geocaching than a scavenger hunt.
Now normally I make pretty detailed lists of the caches I want to tackle in an area, but at events, Datruck usually ends up chatting with someone, and we typically then end up caching with a group, so I didn't bother, assuming this event would be the same.
There were two geocaches listed in the park - one right near the pavilion, and one a very short hike away. We hiked first.
Then we decided to head to the nearby cemetery caches, where there were such beautiful stones and statues - it was fun to walk around and great locations for caches!
So, once again, we were late getting back.
We did win a couple of the chinese auction items, and I had fun taking photos of all the dogs who attended the event.
The schedule said they would announce who won the most creative cache contest at 2:25, so we were anxiously awaiting that - wanting to see the containers... but either we missed that too, or no one entered? Again, I just don't know.
The event ended with lists of the new unpublished caches being handed out.
The raffle was very large, there was PLENTY of food, and lots of activities. I can't fault the event organizers here at all, it appears they did everything they could to make this an awesome event.
But I had a lot more fun at the CITO in NY the next morning. :-)
