Early January has mostly been about outliers. Outliers being caches located in more remote areas and usually some distance from other caches. They are what remains after finding caches in denser groupings.
Bring Your Lunch Geocache
Seven caches in Coos county and western Douglas county were my primary targets:
One of the most oft-stated benefits of geocaching is making new friends. I can truly say that you who are a part of my regular geocaching adventures have become welcome friends. If not for geocaching we may never have met – a sad thought!
Group at Trail head
Group geocache outings are usually the most memorable excursions of each year. From 2013, the standouts are hikes at Upper Table Rock, Humbug Mtn., and Golden and Silver Falls – kayaking events at Eel And Cleawox lakes – a geo-tour in Florence – and many impromptu group hunts after our weekly geo-breakfast.
Speaking of our weekly gatherings, as I write this post we are approaching the sixth anniversary of our weekly geo-coffee! The group size has ebbed and flowed over time but early in 2013 it seemed to bust out! Lately, it seems to have shrunk a little but I attribute much of the long term unity of the south coast cachers to the camaraderie built over these six years of regular visiting.
Steve & Nancy long ago coined a phrase we use a great deal around here – You Meet The Nicest People Geocaching!
Amen to that!
Looking forward to more group fun in 2014 – bring it on!
