Will be heading to the block party.  Been a while since I can make a mega event and never made any to HQ.

Planning on giving a Milestone and Extremes Map to HOUSTON CONTROL and to one of the co founders of the ET HWY mega series at a local event during the same weekend.

So looking forward to it.  :cheers:

Which event?  Would like to be there if we can.


There is no adventure without risk.

Awesome time at the Block Party!  A special thanks to cajunabear for delivering my custom Milestones Map to me during the trip (OK, he had to give it to me at baggage claim at IAH yesterday, but it still made the trip).  I managed to get the old and special caches in Oregon on Thursday: GC12 (placed 5/12/00), GC17 (placed 7/21/00), the Original Stash Tribute Plaque, GC92 (placed 10/22/00), GC142 (placed 1/7/01), and GCA5 (placed 11/4/00).  Attended the Block Party Saturday and got 11 cache types in a day, including the new and limited edition Lab Cache icon.  Got another old cache on Sunday morning with the hike up to GCD (placed 6/21/00) and topped it off with the hike through the tunnel to the Ape Tribute cache and a find on another oldie, GC79 (placed 10/7/00).  A lot of walking, hiking and climbing, but incredibly fun!

Cool!  O0

 

So were your lab caches temporary caches, or were they new spins on traditional caches?

The lab caches were basically code word caches that you accessed via a web page on your smart phone. 5 of them involved taking a tour of local microbreweries (and sampling the beer!). They call them lab caches because the were basically beta testing a new cache activity at the Block Party and they were only available for a couple of days.

Quotes.  Meaning as normal as he was.  For him.  It's all relative.
