If you follow tradition, the gift for a ten year anniversary is, of all things under the sky, aluminum. You could buy your loved one some real nice aluminum siding or the fuselage of a plane. Neither is very practical, unless you’re not the interested in making it far into your 10th anniversary.
Geocachers celebrated 10 Years! this past weekend in a much more suitable style, with CAKE. They offered the loving gift of thousands calories and a five minute sugar rush, not kitchen foil. Smart choice.
There must be some nerve bundle deep in our cortex, some where near the command and control for your blinking and breathing, that mandates we snap pictures of the cake at events. You should see the pictures on our Flickr and Facebook pages. Australians know how to make cakes. And lets not forget about the pastry stylings of geocachers in Denmark. All were impressive.
What’s more impressive might just be the people who showed to eat the cake and celebrate ten years of geocaching together.
This decade has been quite a ride that spread geocaching from a lowly cache in Oregon to every continent on the earth and even to the International Space Station. More significantly the family-friendly adventure has spread inward, to this little nerve bundle in the cortex. Not only does the bundle fire control commands for blinking, breathing and urges to take pictures of cakes, it’s where geocaching has found a home for many.
