There's an "event cache" coming up here on Okinawa. I will get the opportunity to meet some of the more experienced geocachers that hail from here. I'm eager to meet some of the very nice people that I've communicated with indirectly.
That's part of the beauty of this "sport." Everyone that I've met has been very nice, and I'm lucky to have known them. I hope this event carries the same weight.
Since I quit smoking in March, I don't need much of an excuse to go to a cookout, so this event is a no-brainer for me.
Here's to hoping that my fellow Okinawan cachers are all as nice as I think they are.
