Summer Dreamin’ Don’t Let the Cachin’ End!
Come over and pitch your tent for the night or just come to socialize for a few hours.

Thank you to everyone who came, braved the weather, stayed, enjoyed breakfast, and helped to make this a success. Cache On - Cache Happy! A few folks have called to ask - will this be canceled? The answer NO. I have a couple of EzEUps and it's a go. Perhaps won't be a social if there is rain or a drizzle but it will happen. So will breakfast in the AM Sunday. Come, drop in, sign the log book, get a smilie - camp if you want and if it's raining or drizzing - the rest is up to you. This event piggy backs on the The Last Cache Bashe of Summer 2008 event. It allows folks to gas save by camping out and staying in the area, inexpensively, for another day of caching. If you are not a camper, it gives you a second event in the area in a different venue, at a different time of day for the sharing of geo-fun.
Chances for Geocaching talk – TB/Geocoin trading table – cache container swap (last year there were a few cute containers brought to swap – please think about bringing one) – swag swap (got swag and want to swap, bring some and take some) – place to camp – caches nearby - fire ring at night – large grassy are for tenting – lots of caches in the area – and perhaps help with use of GSAK, wireless and paperless caching. Plenty of grass for camping, there will be a port-a-potty, hot tub will be available and you may use it, caches nearby if you want to do a run, table for TBs and coin trading and/or discovery, cache container/cache supply swap table, caching discussion, wifi available on the deck, pot luck supper and then coffee, tea, hot chocolate and light fare on Sunday morning.
Event will be held – Rain or Shine – come prepared for the weather – bring your swim suit and towels (if you wish to use the hot tub). Talk about caching, enjoy the companionship of other cachers, meet people who put out caches or just come to swap travel bugs, coins or discover them. Take a night walk and do a few local caches – all within 2 miles.
Event starts at 4:00 P.M. and will end with a “Cook’s choice” breakfast on the deck between 7:00 A.M. and 9 A.M. on Sunday morning. From here, everyone can take off to return home or find caches on their way home. The closest cache is within ¼ mile and walkable from the camping.
• TBs Coins and other trackables should be placed on the designated table on the deck for swapping, trading and discovery.
• If you have personal coins you are carrying – please share them with others.
• Cache container – swap – there will be a table available if you want to bring a pre-made container or anything which may be fashioned into a container. Bring one and take one. It will be fun to see how the juices may flow with imagination here. Also you may bring logs, short pencils, pens – anything to contribute so we can get supplies from one another to make new caches. Swag is also welcome. Put it on the table or location designated. Be fair with one another when considering what you take and try to make your swaps somewhat equal. Does anyone have any unique containers to swap? Have we camoed some containers and just didn’t have a place to put them? This would be a chance to get some containers into the hands of some who might be willing to place them. Please consider participating by bringing something for this part of the fun.br>• WiFi – Paperless – GSAK all this stuff. There should be plenty of folks at this event who may help you and bring your laptop and try it out.
Food is always part of a Geocaching event. The evening meal will be pot luck and at no specific time! I will have one grill to use and anyone is welcome to bring another. Nothing special is planned but if everyone posts what they are bringing we can plan accordingly.
Please bring a cooler as I do hot have extra frig space. Also, there are several take outs in town and I will have menus available. On Sunday morning, I will put together a buffet breakfast. It will be light fare. No one needs to bring anything (except for your supper contribution) unless you are a picky eater or want something special. Things will start going out between 7AM & 8 AM.
