View Full Version : GeoWoodstock IX - 7/2/2011 - - General Thoughts

07-05-2010, 08:36 PM
Well - GW IX is up and running on - here is the link ( Some of the GCM folks have already posted a "will attend". I suspect being on the East Coast ~ this will be well attended by our contingent.

GMC has the major tread open and a chance to open individual treads for specific topics. I hope this one will be for general information and general questions.

Let's open others for topics such as car pooling, camping, etc.

And if you have never been to a Mega Event - there are some folks here who have been to many - and some who have been to a few. Nothing like a regular event but worth attending. This is a good forum to ask questions for sure.

Thanks BRDad for opening this link!

Mega ho! Lots of trouble to get into at one of these things.

Mega ho! Lots of trouble to get into at one of these things.

Not sure what you mean here but yes, a ton to do and many options with a year to plan!

How many people from where in Maine, for how many nights?,........ and options of a Cyr Bus road trip might prevail........who knows. There would need to be an organizer but with stops in Lewiston, Portland and perhaps Portsmouth on down through - it might work. I am sure if you could fill the bus they would be able to give you a price.

One thing for sure. If Maine folks want to go to a Mega - this is a great option!:)

The bus thing is easy. Rented many buses. But that would be for a one day trip? I'll be looking for more than that.

Get on chat and we can talk about it there.

This week I will be off to non-caching ventures - but enjoyed chatting with Eki today when he picked something up from me. This is a possible venture if there are enough folks who don't want to make the drive themselves.

I went to Geowoodstock with my daughter, sister and her husband and son. We shared a campsite with TAT and did some caching with him. We had a grand time at the event and I'm even considering going to next year's, since it's in Penn. It was fun meeting the cachers from Maine at the event.

We are planning on going to next years in PA. Going to take my parents and then after the event we are going to niagra falls to my brothers on the canadian side for a couple of days caching there.

I just reserved our hotel for the weekend. Friday to Monday. Got a decent rate for what they are offering. We plan to camp the second part of the trip. I will be working on those plans soon as well. It will be nice to see so many Mainers at this one.

I am also hoping to go. Look forward to possibly catching up with some of you or meeting those in person that I have not met yet.

Registrations is finally available!! Woo Hoo!!

We have already reserved a campsite. Hopefully all this snow will melt by then :p

We hope to see you ALL there!! :D

I was going to alert everyone. Yes it's finally posted. We are all registered as well. Word to the wise. Book accommodations early. Many including myself had hotels booked last August. Many may be full.We have been working on our itinerary this afternoon. Have e-mails out to the campgrounds we want. Two nights in Lancaster area, and two nights in Clearfield and one in Ontario. This one is going to be tough to do PQ's for. I just need to start working on it I guess.

I would definitely be interested in knowing more about the bus trip. Unfortunately, I have much pending and in limbo with Les' heart work up and need to reschedule his hip surgery, so I won't know until much closer to the date.
I'd also be interested to know if anyone is doing a carpool/cache there and back type camping trip...That sounds like even more fun!
And, who knows when, where and GC code for coin fest?? That's my other goal!

Thanks, Barry! Are you going to either of those?
That would be a dream to just spend all day looking at coins!!

If you love Geocoins you may want to start reading and visiting the forum for them on That is how I ordered my new coin (see my new Avatar). You many times get information about coins coming out, coins you never knew about and there is a lot of information there. Even if you can't get to Geocoinfest - this forum will let you explore a lot.
