FTF bug and contest reminder.

 

ftf10213

With winter on the horizon, we have been trying to get our FTF fix before it’s too cold. I know you are all waiting on the Wendover or BUSt event post. I am working on it but I must admit I have been spending my logging time chasing the FTF’s.  Hopefully will be finished today!

So it started on 10/21/2013 when my e-mail notification beeped and we were within a mile of a new cache called Utah's Biggest Cat House. We were not sure what to expect however we were pleasantly surprised with the great favorite point worthy cache by rdyklwt. He did a fantastic job and included my favorite cache traits,  good location that went with the name, Super SWAG that matched the name as well as a great container. All of the details were covered.

Another thing we love about a FTF is the “FTF event.” Often times you will run into other cachers and the encounters are worth the traffic laws that were broken on the way to Ground Zero. We were met by HaloCure, she is one of our Favorites! Pictured below.ftf10214

After using my blogging time to cache, I was planning on blogging no matter what on 10/22/2013…..that is until my notification alerted me to another FTF within 4 miles of my location. SO…day 2 of FTF happened instead of a blog post.

Small SWAG Trading Post by Tntsnow listed and we were off. I love it when the kids encourage me to go for it. Our 5 yr. old was alseep in the back seat and the 13 yr. old (McAwesome) navigated the way. We raced to GZ and when we arrived we noticed another person in the park so naturally we started running to the cache. We located it quickly and let out a victory cheer when we realized the log was blank. Another Favorite point worthy cache.

This fun was just the beginning….wow….after this we went to Freemont Street. We took our dear friend Sean the Survivor. He couldn’t make the trip so we took him with us. This Album is to Survivor Sean

 

Some people think they would not make a life size cut out of themselves….I know I would after that night…everyone thought he was a Duck Dynasty Guy….sorry he is just our friend that happens to be a Dirtbag! Ok after all of that fun…you have to wait for more of Mega event, let’s just say I almost won GeoCoin Poker…More to come.

HUGE REMINDER…..in just a few days we are creating our own fun….Wendover or BUST. We hope to see you on our event on wheels. Please come see us.

Lots of love and will see you all on the bus, the rest of the event will be better, including the Dirtbag story.

Happy Caching!

HOLY SWEET CACHE TARDIS 10 TB Vortex

tard  This Holy Sweet Cache is brought to you by the talented Halocure & Family halocure. GC4059W is their family project. It is so important to their family they even created a Facebook page just for this cache. I think any cache with it’s own Facebook page is a HOLY SWEET CACHE.
00day18.100day18.2day25.5
     We first found this Holy Sweet Cache when it was a lot smaller, a micro to be exact. We still loved it because the FTF race was stiff on this one…between us and RN&Terrier, bad thing was she walked to the cache…ouch.
     It was placed on October 27th 2012. Since then it has been the home to over 79 travel bugs. On 6/9/2013 this micro grew into a beautiful Travel Bug Hotel…nice size cache. This is one example of a cache that thought it could and did!

     Halo spoke of the transformation, “the inspiration for turning it into a TB hotel was when I went to Michigan and found several really nice TB hotels that were locked and had TBs in them since they were more secure.”
This has been their family project. I also think a cache that brings a family together as a team is a HOLY SWEET CACHE. They love Dr. Who and it shows. The family just had their first path tag made and it goes with the cache theme:

Make sure you visit their Facebook page for this cache. https://www.facebook.com/tardis10tb.
We are getting so excited for all the caching fun we have planned. Working hard on caches & SWAG for the Dirtbag Geocaching Society booth at Geocoinfest in Las Vegas this weekend.
Don’t forget there are a few seats left on the WENDOVER or BUSt event on wheels. The Bus leaves for Wendover on October 19th 2013. Reserve your seat today!
Happy Caching!
