Geo Monster Ball 2011

We had a blast at the Geo Monster Ball 2011 held in Lynden, WA.  It was a geo caching event. 

Geocaching is a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices and then share their experiences online. (from )

We met lots and lots of  people from all over. It was the first time for us to do an event like this. It was really neat to meet others at all the different caches. We all had to swap stories. It also good for us novice cachers to get more info.

This was Nonna and Pappy's first time caching.They were such good sports.  They spent the whole day helping us geocache.

The first cache of the day for us was Lettuce Go Caching.  The clue was in a plastic lettuce. The title of this one just cracked me up. 

A lot of the caches were in plastic food. There were also a few in plastic hands.

Pappy even discovered a cache in a giant spider. 

The end of day, we all met up at the Lynden Pioneer Museum which no one in our group had ever been to. It really is a gem.  I would like to go back when it isn't packed as they have a replica of Main Street.One of the best parts was it had a honeypot.  Of course, I had to get my picture by it.

We ate dinner there and explored the museum. Many were there in costume both adults and kids. It was a lot of fun. We completed a scavenger hunt for clues to coordinates where there was one last cache. Unfortunately it had a few us stumped for quite a few minutes. But alas someone had better geo sense than us.
