We need to be serious here.  There are only 34 days until the SETX Octoberfest! There are still plenty of things you must do to prepare.

Day 34: Duct tape all moveable windows of your vehicle shut.

The reason is obvious.

Has someone begun brewing the *SETX Octoberfest beer*  I know one of our fellow geocachers has a *micro-brewery* or a *still* somewhere out there.   :D


Not only has it been brewed; it's also been consumed by Mrs. Davarle.   How else do you think she comes up with this stuff?



NOOOOOOOOooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOO!!  :D

I'm betting on a still out in the pines somewhere in the area.

You might just end up with an oversized Travel Bug in your backseat.

If you are going to SETX Octoberfest, do not use this holiday as an excuse for procrastinating.  After all, there are only 33 more days to go.  To insure a fun, safe time you must act now.
33 days- Buy permanent marker to write your name on yourself so that they can identify your body.  

Maybe I am being a little too cautious, but, let’s face it, there will be a few who will not survive SETX Octoberfest.  Remember how long it took them to identify manofnofingers73?

You may have had a busy holiday weekend, and maybe you can’t even think about planning for the SETX Octoberfest, but there are only 32 days left to prepare.  I can help you.

Day 32-Wean yourself off of flaxseed oil.

Please start today.  You wouldn’t want a fate like the Mucilaginous Buddies.  :o

Maybe we shouldn't just do initials on logs any more.  We wouldn't want to be confused with the Mucilaginous Buddies

The SETX Octoberfest is only 31 days away, so make sure you plan in advance.  Here is what you need to do today.
Day 31-
Buy the ingredients to make the dish you will be bringing.  I usually bring everyone's favorite: borscht.  O0

Yes, it was me.  I bought 50 lbs.  I figure one lb of beets per person.  I didn't want to make too little, and see the disappointed people like when we ran out last year.

Don't I remember.  You were inconsolable.
Now I don't want to be accused of any favoritism, but I will save an extra big helping just for you.  I don't want you to run out of tissues again.

The SETX Octoberfest is only one month away.  Don’t despair if you haven’t been preparing.  There is still time.

Day 30:
Practice saying the following in a convincing tone, “Officer, it was only one squirrel.”

You wouldn’t want what happened to OneSquirrelCloser last SETX Octoberfest.

On a side note, I understand that they should be done with their community service any week now.  O0

You know, OneSquirrelCloser does not attend events out of the Park and Gab portal.  I think they may have attended a Snoogans event once, but they were at the corner gathering seeds and grains for winter.  I think you may be confused with *Squirrel Puppet*.

I think you are right.  Now that I think of it, he did look rather Puppetty.

SETX Octoberfest is less than a month away!  For your safety, please plan ahead.
Day 29:
Plug in local hospitals into your navigation system.

Let’s face it, several of you are never going to make it back.  I can’t save everyone.
Remember last year?
Mrs. Captain Kirk had just finished the last strenuous ritual, and started clutching her chest, then fell to the ground.  At the same time, Mr. Mucilaginous Buddies got a paper cut.  I had to choose who to help.  It was an easy decision. I placed a nice clean Band-aid on the paper cut, and … um…. well Mrs. Captain Kirk was just another statistic of fate at the SETX Octoberfest.

Practice the chicken dance now so that you will be really good at it for Octoberfest.  You wouldn’t want to embarrass yourself.


Is that a "geocaching game"?

How about the FTF dance?

No.  Remember last Octoberfest when they made fendmar dress up as a chicken and lead us all in the chicken dance?
They said that no one could have any water unless we all participated.  How could you forget that?  

 Please tell me there are pictures!  :2funny:


Here's a video of Fendmar and Georeynozos


And then 2 newbies made it into the finals of the chicken dance.



That video is hilarious! :2funny: Is this event more indoors or outdoors? Would a geopup be able to attend this one?
