My Geocaching Getaway
This weekend was a fun one for my wife, we elected to take Friday off and head to Southern Utah. Down to St. George to the event was the goal on Saturday, but I had no other plans.
I did have a few that I will throw lists on tomorrow night. I made a list of all the virtuals and earthcaches on the way down and back, we made a trip down to Richfield to stay Thursday night, then over to Cove Fort, and south to St George on Friday. Then Saturday was the event, and through Zions, and north up highway 89 until we hit Richfield to see family. Then we came back on Sunday.
The even in St. George was great. It had a ton of people in attendance at there breakfast. I counted about eighty people in the photos. It was a big crowd and I am sure the Golden Corral was happy for all the money that geocachers brought in for them.
I actually took some of the UNPC coins down to sell. We had to scramble to get up and get over there. So I forgot about them completely.
There were so many that I wanted to visit with that I missed most of them.
I should have grabbed a t-shirt that Tico Jeffrey had made and sold to many of the people that were attending. I did not think of it until it was too late, maybe another time.
I want to give thanks to everyone that was involved. It was one of the best events that I have ever been to.
There are a few events that are larger, one or two of the UTAG events have been near this size, and the Potters Ponds event calls out a group of people that is larger. Some of the events up north in Logan tend to be near this size as well.
However after a long winter and people dying to get outside and actually do something, the timing of this event, the nice weather, hosts, and people who attend make this the best getaway in Utah.
I recomend it to all, and hope that schedules allow me to come down every year.
In the next few days I will post some of my other experiences on the trip south, It was more than I could list in one big pile, so if you want to see what else happened, stay tuned.
