Over the last few years, many of us out west have enjoyed the down home hospitality of our friends out east. In 2008 we hope to return this hospitality. The River City Geocaching & Dining Society (RCGDS) and the Northstate Unusual Treasure Seekers (NUTS) are proud to welcome all our friends, old and new, to enjoy the beauty and caches of Northern California on Memorial Day Weekend, May 24, 2008.
Wheatland, California is a suburb of Sacramento and is the setting for GeoWoodstock VI. It is nestled in the heart of the Northern Sacramento Valley, between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the coastal range. You’ll enjoy mild and warm weather during the day with clear balmy evenings. Bring your sunscreen - it can get hot, but it’s a dry heat!
GeoWoodstock is an annual get-together for geocachers from all over the world. In five short years GeoWoodstock has become the world's largest geocaching-related event. It is a relaxed, friendly, and free gathering. Typical activities at past GeoWoodstock events have included meeting people, prize giveaways, geocoin trading, travel bug swaps, and of course, caching like crazy. There have been large and small cache runs, and records have been made for the most caches found in a 24-hour period.
In 2008, GeoWoodstock is going to be all that and much more. GeoWoodstock VI will take place on a farm, echoing the setting of a Woodstock of another era. Come and hang out, find caches, take a train or hay ride, climb a tree house, slide down a couple of giant slides, go panning for marbles, or play with the animals in the petting zoo. This event will be very family-friendly! In addition, there will be many organized cache runs to fit every style. We will have cache runs catering to the wishes of power cachers, families with small kids, and handicapped cachers. There will be runs featuring large caches for trading, historical caches, puzzle caches and seriously challenging caches. There will even be tours for non-caching spouses.
Northern California is rich in history, caches and culture. Like the 49’ers who came seeking treasure 150 years ago, we invite you to come seek some of the 21st century treasure hidden throughout the area. Start making plans to be here. In doing so, note that San Francisco, the Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite are all within a few hours drive. For the adventurous with some extra time, it would be fun to fly into San Francisco airport, spend a day in that city, then drive to the Sacramento area for GeoWoodstock. After the event, drive to Lake Tahoe or Yosemite and spend a day there before flying home.
Come on out to Northern California for GeoWoodstock VI where it’s all about the numbers – the numbers of friends you make.
