Our first event.

Sorry for not keeping my blog up to date and sharing my stories with you.  I know a lot of you have been blogging away and I thank you all for that, there have been some really good reads out there since the Christmas period.

We went to our first event cache towards the end of last month.  It was our first time meeting fellow Geocachers and we really didn't know how it was going to go.

We got there early, in fact we where the first to arrive.  I was unsure what we where going to do when we all met up.  It was in a pub so that should have been a big give away.  We didn't realise how many people where going to be there.  With well over 100 people, even most of the regulars that meet up said it was very surprising to see so many there.

We got talking to a few people, Starlitwolf and her husband dobpet, beauchief and lfc4eva who are both in the coin mileage competition (just for fun) that I do the graphs for.  And also a big mention for countrymatters, who organised such a great event.

I took a few trackable numbers down to discover which I found quite entertaining.  Starlitwolf and dobpet who also brought their son along had him running round the carpark getting trackable numbers from cars.  Great idea the stickers in cars to make them discoverable.

I think for my next event we will try and speak with a few more people and discover more of the trackables.

Really enjoyed it.  Look forward to the next one.  GCK978 - Banish the Winter Blues

  1. Events are a lot of fun. I wish I could do them all, but I do go as often as I can.

  2. You will have to try and make our camping event in September Fermi

  3. Glad you had fun, I can't wait for mega events in the summer

  4. You never forget your first event. Glad you had a great time. Stinger said it best.. The summer megas are a blast.

  5. Interesting idea about trackable numbers on cars with stickers, but I'm not exactly sure what you meant by that. Can you explain?

  6. Its a really good idea, it is probably easier to show you rather than explain so here is one on GC

    You can discover his car!
