First Event Cache

I attended my first event cache here on Okinawa yesterday, and I had a great time. I met some great new people, and was able to put some faces to the names that I have been seeing online for the last couple of months. Thanks for the pointers PJ!

I took the kids with me, and they got a kick out of seeing some of the very extensive geocoin collections that other folks have. I bought my son his first geocoin, and excitedly placed it in a cache this morning. In our haste to get it on its way around the world, we failed to take a picture of it. I've asked the coin company if they have any stock photos but, if they do not, I'll have to go get it out of the cache I placed it in, and snap a pic of it. It certainly suits him.

Here's a picture of the whole group. I promise you, I am in this pic somewhere. (click the image to view it full size)

Awesome! Events are great times. (The group shots are one of my favorite parts of an event, to be honest. I missed one at an event I attended not too long ago and was pretty disappointed about it. Never again will I miss the photo!)

Good to hear you had a great time. If you are into discovering coins and TBs, these things are awesome for it! I was at a small event this weekend and will have a report on that and a day of caching in the next day or two on my blog.

Glad you had a blast. It's always good to get out and meet other cachers. Careful though -- these events are addicting!
