Guess we need to come out of our shells and meet more people. Not far into the book but it is great. Hope the sale did really well and we are sure to be there next year.
    Enjoy the book and keep reading on GCM for information for next year. I suspect there may be some new twists and a bit more formal information.

    Until then - cache on, cache happy! LA

I, personally walked through three times. Bought Wife a bunch of puzzles, and I got hit up by some very persuasive raffle ticket sales girls and stand a fair chance at some nice looking quilts and baskets. Also, never have won a 50/50 raffle but got into that as well. Bought an awsome large book of kennebec Journal papers dated 1929 ( I'm a sucker for that stuff) sure to be hours of great reading. Sorry we didn't meet any fellow cachers, but we are too anti-social to attend any events yet so we don't know many faces, I guess we will have to do something about that. Also, thanks to the young gentleman that we paid for the puzzles (that said he was from Portland) mentioned a big sale in Bingham. Anyway, Thanks for a great time.
    HehHeh . . . as a recent born-again convert to geocaching events (I used to be a "I don't do events" heathen) I can tell you that events are rather pain-less . . . the ones I've been at have all been low-key and if you're a wallflower it's no big deal . . . in some ways it's really nice to be able to put faces to the names . . . even if I don't remember who the person was the next time I see them.

    I have to say I really enjoyed going up to Vic's and Cheryls -- it was the ideal combination of comraderie with old and new friends, camping, caching, kayaking and volunteering to help a good cause . . . something I definitely would do again . . . the only thing I would do different is neuter and muzzle the Chihuahua.

    Do you have to reintroduce yourself to you in order to shave in the morning?

    Well . . . after not showering for a day and not shaving for a couple of days, camping, kayaking and caching . . . it was a bit of a shock to take a look at myself in the mirror when I got home . . . hair was all standing on end and I was a bit grubby.

    Jake...Cheryl will hold the little bugger while you do it. 'cause in all fairness Chris the dogs owner said he'd like to castrate the guy who snored all night in the tent next to his.

    Chercacher and I would like to thank all the geocachers who helped to make this weekend such a huge success. At last count we were nearing thirty cachers who either volunteered time working on the sale, helped to set it all up, or showed up to buy some treasure, a raffle ticket, 50/50 ticket, or simply to support our cause. We appreciate you all. Next year with all of your help it will be a bigger and better run sale. A very special thanks to our own Lacy who sold all those 50/50 tickets all weekend long for a grand total of $1320.00...as already said we are already accepting donations for next years sale... get in touch with me for info or to schedule a pickup. Vic and Cheryl.

    HehHeh . . . I'm not sure which was worse . . . the Chihuahua attempting to have his way with Jr. or the guy with the sonic snoring all night long -- although I must say I never heard the guy snoring.

    I still haven't got the phone call telling me I won the 50/50 though Vic . . . I have big plans for those winnings . . . gonna get me one of those fancy Garmin Oregons you know.

    In all seriousness, it really was a lot of fun: caching, volunteeering for a good cause, meeting up with old friends, making new friends, kayaking, watching Chihuahua Porn, eating good food and camping . . . definitely hope to do this again next year.

    I'll have more for you, whenever you're ready and whenever we go back to BBH.
