The NM Geocachers Are Awesome!Jul 02, 2009

We just returned home from a fantastic week in New Mexico and during our trip we were able to meet up with an awesome bunch of local Geocachers at a Meet and Greet event in Albuquerque.

The New Mexico Geocachers are so hospitable and accommodating that we’re still talking about it!

The NM Geocachers Are Awesome!

Here’s how it all began… :)

A couple of months ago we made plans to visit New Mexico, in the Albuquerque and Santa Fe area. One of the first things we did after our flight and hotel arrangements were made was to seek out some caches. We found from past experience that there’s no better place to start than at the local Geocachers website so we went to the New Mexico Geocaching website forums.

Once there we found a thread that was started by Goldfinch& Lady Goldfinch from Lansing, Michigan who would be visiting around the same time as we were. They were inquiring if there were any local events during their visit. Now here is where the New Mexico Cachers really start to show their true colors – since there were no local events in that time frame they quickly put together one to coincide with their visit and appropriately called it An Albuquerque Welcome!

Here’s a couple photos from the event:

The 2009 Geocaching Kickoff Into SpringMar 23, 2009

We had a great time on Saturday at the annual Nova Scotia Geocaching Spring Kickoff. It was a fantastic afternoon of getting together with friends and family!

This is the fourth year for this event and it gets better every year! As in past years it was held at Curly Portables in Enfield, about 30 minutes outside of the Halifax city core.

The 2009 Geocaching Kickoff Into Spring

This year saw the biggest turnout for this event with 102 Geocaching teams signing the log. This translated into a total of 161 people attending! There were several people from out of province, from as far away as Ontario, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. There were even some Geocachers who arrived that did not know that the event was going on – they logged in, met some new folks and had a great time!

We shared a table with our friends, the ‘Geotrekkers’, and spent the afternoon exchanging caching stories, travel experiences and caught up on recent news. We had a lot of laughs as we spoke and joked with other cachers who dropped by our table and those we met as we walked around dropping by other cachers tables. We also had a great meal. Yes, it was definitely a party. :)

In addition to the great food there was a bunch of prizes to be won, a 50/50 draw and a Travel Bug auction. The door prizes included carry bags, caching goodies, t-shirts, a ready-to-go Geocache, a set of unactivated silver provincial ACGA coins and more.
