The North County Cachers had one of our “regular” events last night, if you can call “whenever the hell we feel like it” regular.  As usual, the pizza was edible, the beer cold and the company outstanding.  Thanks everyone for coming.  Waterlassie did a great job working everyone up into a lather with the white elephant gift exchange and the predictions contest was a big hit.  I do have one vote for a best prediction that I feel got short shrift:

This is a paraphrase as I don’t have the paper in hand:

“I resolve to improve my emerging clairvoyant FTF abilities to the point where I am actually at GZ while caches are being hidden by the owner”

-dougandsuzy

I think it didn’t win because it is more of a resolution, but doesn’t he already do this?

To the folks coming here for help with PQs, software, how-tos and resources like log templates for the first time: welcome!   Shoot me a note if you have questions and I will write them up if I can.

Happy Caching!

It has been too long.  Too, too long.  I missed the last two local events (trust me, that really does suck) and I have been getting grief from fellow cachers about my prior post something like a month ago and several bits of reality have conspired to keep me both from the trail and this blog.  First off, this is my house:

My House, Sort Of

My House, Sort Of

Normally I would do all that fancy crop, zoom and highlight but you can see by the fence and distinct lack of a roof that really this is not so much a house as a pile of crap masquerading as a meth lab.  Or something.  It’s looked like this since March.  No- let me rephrase that…

…we didn’t have the official “this is probably a condemned property” fence until 3 weeks ago, and some of the roof was still there (and the meth lab is a new addition brought in from other sources) but you get the picture.  This is a problem.  Don’t worry, we’re pouring concrete this week so it should rapidly improve from “meth lab” to something just below “public nuisance” in just a few weeks.  The tent we’ve been living out of in the field near 76 and Canyon is weathering well.  “Crazy Mike” says hi, and “wharrgarble!”.  He’s got an accent, don’t you know.

Meanwhile, I actually made a few (22) finds yesterday, some with great pics I want to share.  Somebody has been busy dropping little mint tins while I’ve been out of pocket.  I like it.  I also heard Dougandsuzy, Waterlassie and Kawikaturn were all out of town on the road this weekend.  I gotta get me some of that weekend out of town caching.  Sounds fun.
