Hey, it was down to 88 yesterday.  Given that was at 10am, but the previous days it was already mid 90's by that time.

Looked up the weather forecast for Washington for the next 10 days.  I think it gets up to 72 the day I leave.  The other days it ranges from 66-68.  :2funny:

Midnight Geocoin Madness is a coin buying/selling/swapping/admiring event.  Watch where you park...  :-\

Soooooo.  From the way it seems, your vehicle got hit and you exploded?

Where's the particulars on Midnight Madness?  I'll start searching now for it.

It looks like several of you are going to the extreme for hurricane evacuation.  :2funny:

For those going to GW, have a great time, and we'll see you when you get back...if we haven't floated away by then.

Too funny!  I can sympathize with you in regards to a particular Texas Challenge not too long ago.  I'm still ticked (not to confuse with ticketed) about that.

No HC's car got booted and then he exploded...... :veryangry:

Donna and I were waiting for HC at the event, we had seen him and then they made an announcment for people to move their cars from certain parking areas.  So HC ran to check on his car, (I read the *Do not park here* signs so I knew ole stucky was safe!)  Then Donna and I were waiting, waiting....45mns past, waiting....  Then here comes HC...never heard anyone cuss so much in 3 minutes!!

The coin event is the *MOTHER LOAD* of all coin events....  You will see alot of eyecandy...be able to do some trading of coins, pathtags or even buy them.  It is alot of fun until the firemarshalll throws everyone out because the room is overcrowded..  Hopefuly we will not have  that problem this year!!  :-)  They will have a special coin you can buy at the event too, it may be limited, but you will be able to spot the line where they are selling it.

Give me a call from time to time.  I'll need a lot of hand-holding.  And, if you can get an extra coin from the madness thing, I'll pay you for it.  :)

I'd like to somehow compare notes as to what the best caches are in the area.

Does anyone have a list of particularly spectacular or unique things in WA, Canada, or nearby areas?

Here's some of my pictures I've taken so far.  They don't have descriptions, but you can get the idea:

Here's a better description of some of the pics and what caches they went into:

The event has been alot of fun!!  Original Stash, Ape Cache, phew walked up a mountain with switchbacks!! and tomorrow HQ!!

Yes, Patty had an impacted tooth and I had to rush her to the nearest ER to get a doc to see her and some meds.  The rest of the group cached and (had a beer) while we waited for Patty to be released from the hospital.  Scary moment, but all is well...

Here's a video about how Geowoodstock got started and it has pictures of GW8.

Look carefully, and you will see an apparent list of coin / TB codes as well as someone from the local area.
