PLEASE PERFORM A Pocket Query and update your electronic devices to include all GooTech caches. We'll have SOME paper copies available, but if you have yourself dialed in SO MUCH THE BETTER! Bring something for the raffle, if you'd like to share, and something to put in a cache container so we can give away a fully-stocked cache for the winner to hide. Bring a sense of fun and adventure. Come one, come all! Since placing his first cache on June 15, 2007, GooTech has placed 96 caches (and growing), many of which have really stumped many of us. How do EYE find them? Think of THE most obscure possibility, and look there. Works ... sometimes. In honor of GooTech, Poison Oak Cachers invite friends, family, old-timers and newbies for a group hunt followed by pizza at a local gathering spot.
Meet at the coordinated by 9:45 a.m. to regroup, carpool, and head out on the hunt departing at 10 a.m. Return at Noon(ish) for lunch and storytelling, travel bug swapping, raffles (bring goodies for the raffle, too, please), fun & games for the whole family.
EVENT HISTORY: GooTech doesn't know about this event...yet. Some of the Poison Oak Cachers (PointSalJim, Geo_Cat, OreoPony and I) were hiking the Buchon Trail awhile back and I told them about GooTech caches. They were up for a cachin' day down here stormin' the Goo.
We figured on spending a day at it (some of the caches are mind-boggling), but came up instead with making it a group event. Will we each find all of his caches that day? Not in time for lunch. But who says you can't go BACK out after lunch?
Here's what I envision - Meet up at the pizza joint, team up and fan out. Reconvene for grub at lunchtime, swap stories (but no spoilers!), then either head back to the responsibility of real life, hang out and relax at the parlor or hit the Gooey trail again.
Will Master Goo add new caches in honor of this event? I don't know! But somehow I have a feeling he's got something REALLY diabolical up his sleeve and has been waiting for JUST the right time to lay it on us...
