ArkGeo 2008 Annual Social

Yeah, I was out having fun this weekend. The Arkansas Geocachers Assoc held their annual meeting at Lake Catherine. It was my first time to meet these people you only know by their caching name. There was plenty of food, caching and prizes to be won. Yup, I picked up a couple of prizes!

This is the educational table. You could compare your GPS features with others. Find out what programs people were using to store or organize their caches. I found out the clue to solving the We Forgot! mystery caches in Rogers. Sneaky, very, very sneaky!
There was also showing off your geocoins. "CacheMates" definitely has a nice collection. Unfortunately, I didn't stay for the hotdog and marshmallow roast. I missed out on a very special event.
The "Wake" for "Uncle Elwin" and the scattering of some of his ashes was a new experience but now he can call Arkansas home. You had to have been there.

I'm really looking forward to the next years Ark-Geo Event somewhere in Arkansas!
