10! Years

Being the geonerd that I am.......I had to make sure that Craig and I went to an official 10 years event!  Geocaching began 10 years ago outside of Portland, OR. (Go Pacific Northwest!).  Living about an hour north of here it seemed the most logical place to go for a 10 year event.  So that is what we did.  We headed to Redland, OR for the local event, 10 Years! Redland, Oregon (GC23VJF).

The hosts of the event placed 10 caches in the area surrounding the cache site.  If you found all 10 cache you got a special raffle ticket at the event.  So of course I had to find all 10 of them.  We drove down to Redland early so we could make the finds.

Yet another photo of thee group.
What a pretty view.
What a peaceful spot.

Looking into the culvert.
After finishing the 10x10 series we found a couple more caches.  Had to stop in a cemetery right?
Why is there an umbrella over the grave site?
The spread at the event.
Will we win anything? (I won 2 things!)
Setting up the group photo.
Photoburpee and family.
A TB I picked up.

When we got down to Redland we ran into a couple of local cachers, Photoburpee and his family.  We enjoyed hanging out with them from cache to cache.  It was also nice to get to know each other a little better. We had a lot of fun!
