All Quiet on the Western Front July 20, 2009

Sorry folks, the summer is here and guess what…

…the surf was better than the caching last week!  I know, I know, sacrilege.  But hey, when the hills and trails are in the high 90s while the beach is 75 and sunny with a breeze and chest high sets I don’t think there’s much to talk about.

Call it a survival mechanism.  I don’t like dying of heatstroke.  In the mean time, a whole mess of new caches have been published around the house.  My existing caches are getting lots of summertime traffic, which is s a good thing, and it sure makes all those maintenance trips worth it.  I’ll get out again this week if the weather cools off.

I’m out.  Seattle Wednesday-Thursday, Albany Friday, reunion on Saturday.  Maybe I can get a little caching done in Seattle and Albany.

I finally got back on this AM.  Looks like there was a fire near/in the same building as the Groundspeak data center.  That link will take you to the forums where status notes are posted.

I would expect some delays in the PQ and notifications features while all the backlog is processed.  Find logging is a bit slow, too.

Update: here’s a more full-featured news article. Happy Independence Day!

I can’t navigate to either geocaching.com or groundspeak.com.  NSLOOKUP won’t resolve the name, either, so it looks like the intertoobs have just “forgotten” about us.

Is it just me?  At home I’m on Cox San Diego.  You?

Let’s assume you are inclined to come to our infrequent Geocaching meet and greet events in North San Diego County.  What kind of educational topics might you be interested in seeing presented?

Weigh in, you might obligate one of us to do some homework!

There’s been a little conversation brewing for a while on the NCC Yahoo! group regarding a summer meet and greet at our usual hangout.  You can read all about it, here.

The call for a proper “breakout” session or two around route planning, hiding techniques and so forth is out there.  Depending on interest level, I’d be willing to step up and deliver a talk or two.  Why don’t you head on over to the Yahoo! group and register your interest so Peg can give me a shout out to prepare for a nice presentation?

I will toss up a poll and see if I can’t get some real interest going.  We’d love to have a whack of people up for a midweek gathering.  C’mon, you know you wanna!
