This is a no-frill meet-and-greet event. Please read the description below for important details.
How crazy of a geocacher are you?
Think of all the things you've done as a geocacher. Think of how you react to things. Just, well, think.
Have you ever forsaken something you were working on to fly out the door for an FTF?
How many times have you said "just one more" as it starts to get dark and then cache for several hours more?
Do you get the cold sweats if you go a week or two without a cache?
Have you found yourself wandering around in the woods way after midnight searching for a cache?
If any of these are you, then you might enjoy this event.
See, this event is more of a study. I'm actually curious how many people will show up for this event. Though just a simple meet-and-greet with a 1/1 rating, it's actually not all that easy.
It's at 1 a.m.
You read that correctly.
This is not, in any way, kid friendly. If you like to sleep before 10 p.m. or something, this isn't for you.
But, if you're a cacher looking for a fix, then this might just work for you.
My goal is to have a 24/7 cache (or two) out and available that night at the event. Then after the event, you can go snag the caches (or not) on your way home. I may even ask to have them published at like 11 p.m., if the admin is someone who stays awake that long!
Look on the bright side -- this event is on a Saturday night (well, Sunday morning technically, but you know what I mean...), so if you're out and about, just stay up a bit longer and come sign the log.
Do it, you know you want to.
The real question, though, is can you resist?
A study in geocaching nature is what this is all about. I encourage notes from people who won't be coming, too, as I'd love to hear the reasons you won't be coming.
Note: This is a normal meet-and-greet. No frills, no nothing. I'll be there, at a minimum, from 1-1:30. Possibly a little longer, depending on who shows. But this event will run for a minimum of 30 minutes.
