How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

6:00 PM Saturday November 1, 2008

The Hayride

The event will officially start at 6:00 PM, but the hayride will not leave until 7:00 PM. This is no ordinary hayride, it will be a haunted geocaching adventure with stops along the way to hunt the stages of a special interactive presentation of a deadly clever new multi-stage cache adventure to be released at the event. So come prepared with flashlights, courage and imagination.

The Food & Festivities

After the big hunt we will have a weenie roast at the bonfire with s'mores for dessert. We will provide plenty of our salsas and sauces for chipping and dipping along with the hot dogs and the s'mores construction material. Please bring your favorite potluck dish to share with the group. We will also provide hot spiced tea and cocoa, but we ask you to bring anything else you may want to drink. Of course, after the hayride and the food we will have lots of time to sit around the bonfire and tell tall geocaching tales and stories of the spookiest cache hunts ever.

The Contests

What would a Halloween Geocaching Event be without silly contests? Well, we are not going to find out, because we will be having lots of silly contests complete with totally useless and cheesy prizes for the winners, although we might slip something cool in as a prize occasionally. This year we will be having contests for:

  • Best Costume (Child Division)
  • Best Costume (Adult Division)
  • Best Werewolf Howl
  • Best Witch Cackle
  • Biggest Pumpkin
  • Best Halloween Decorated Geocache Container
  • and much, much more!

    This year more than ever, costumes are strongly recommended, I will not require them, but expect Monkeybrad to ridicule you if you show up out of costume.

    The Lodging Details

    Since this one usually goes until well into the night, we have decided to include lodging information for those of you travelling from out of town.
    Henry Horton State Park
    has great facilities available including primitive camping, motorhome hookups, a nice lodge and
    even cabins for rental, and the best part is that it is only about five miles from the event. I have it on good authority that there will be several geocachers camping at the park this weekend, check local listings for other events in the area. There are also hotels available in Shelbyville, Lewisburg and Columbia, but they are all a bit further to drive.

    The obligatory disclaimers...

    We do have one request. Due to the presence of our own furry family members,(besides Monkeybrad) we ask that pets be left at home so as not to cause any conflict. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    And as always, this is a family friendly event, adult beverages are welcome, but let's keep it discreet until the kiddies go to bed.

    The Bottom Line

    We look forward to seeing everyone this year, it keeps growing and this year's event should be bigger and better than ever, with more fun and surprises around every corner. So come on out and join us for our Sixth Annual Haunted Hayride and Caching Cookout, it should be a thrilling good time.
