The Second Milestone (250)

So time has obviously passed, and many more caches were found.  But with that the second milestone became a reality, and that was the 250th.  That cache was "GC2HABH - RACE10 - Eeek! Not another one! by Landsharkz", and we found this on October 30th, 2010.

We arrived at the cache site and got ourselves ready to head out, and RVTraveller and iflyrc2 (with both their wives) pulled up beside us.  We as a team headed out together to the cache site, and after a decent stroll down the beach we found the cache.  We really got a laugh out of this one, and the warning that if this was found by muggles would lead to this cache being archived made perfect sense. 

It was a great way to have found this.  It would have been really funny to have found this with Just Leafy, but it was way nicer to have been with an impromptu group!!!  To read the log CLICK HERE.

Beware the Witching Hour is Nigh!

We had been eyeballing this since we got our first taste of night caches. Just Leafy and I could not understand the starting spot as it seemed to be in the middle of the road, but at a recent event we got a hint from alyseluvsmike and all was understood.

On October 23, 2010 we headed out with a team of people just dying to get this done.  Came out with pracademics, Just Leafy, alyseluvsmike and meleakett. We started out the journey into the night armed with our lights, glow-bracelets and a sense of adventure.

All was well as we trekked into woods placing our glow-bracelets on branches as we went, making our way to the final. Some of the terrain was a little tough to navigate as the ground was wet and moss and mud made a lot of the area slippery. But in the end we made it to our destination and found the cache.

With the signing and rummaging through the bevy of goodies in the container done, we headed back out of the woods. But then it was man down, well in fact woman down. Poor Just Leafy took a spill but luckily with no injury, in fact she thought the fall corrected her back problem a little.
After following our glow markers back out and collecting them on the way, we headed off to enjoy some food and beverage at the 4 Mile Pub.

Thanks go to  alyseluvsmike for staging this get together and getting us all out to get this one off the list!

On October 10th, 2010 we celebrated 10/10/10. GCGV hosted thier 10-10-10 at 10 event at Serious Coffee in Veiw Royal, and this particular event was special to us because it marked our 200th find.

This was one of our earliest events (our 3rd I think), and we had a blast!
We got to meet so many new people, and learned so much about puzzles and multi-stage caches. We forged some new friendships, and started planning grand adventures.

Thank you GCGV for such a fun event!
