Cacheapalooza 6

If a geocaching event goes over 500 attendees, it qualifies as a mega-event!  This year Cacheapalooza became Mega, and so we got our first Mega icon.

We went with Laurie, Chip and Dylan, and their friends Mary,  Bob and Andie.  It was a perfect day - not too hot, not too cold, bright and beautiful.  Dick and I got there early, and were signed in by our friends Sue and Gary (Sugarwar).
 The first thing we did was go to a class on GSAK, which was a total waste of time.  We didn't learn a thing!

Laurie brought lunch for everybody, and we had a fun lunch. We sat at a picnic table in the shade to avoid the noisy family in the pavilion!  After lunch we cached along one of the wonderful paved trails in Jonathan Dickinson State Park.  Sixteen caches were found for the day.

We all had dinner in the evening in the big pavilion - pizza, chips and cookies mostly.  Then they held a marathon raffle drawing that lasted for at least 3 hours.  Dick and I left before it was over - it became deadly dull.

All in all, it was another enjoyable Cacheapalooza with friends and family.
