Off Road Fun in McCloud


Spent Saturday up on the LPPT – translation: Lemurian Playground Power Trail!  A series of Geocaching Power Trails that intertwine all around the McCloud and Mt Shasta area logging roads.  The Link: GC4H8J1 LPPT–Starts Here!

I had some favorite caches that I came across too:

Checking for Geocaches on the way home and saw that there might be a chance to grab an FTF (First to Find) so I mapped it on the GPS and headed towards Hedge Creek Falls!!  And YES! I scored the FTF!!

Munzees in Gilroy

What a fun place to Munee!  Teamed up with YoursTruly, Hans415 and OldZee and headed South to Gilroy.

Munzee held an Event down in Gilroy at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in 2013  Lots of Munzee’s were deployed so there were a lot of Munzee’s to capture!

We spent the entire weekend tracking down Mystery’s, Diamonds and Virtuals, what a great weekend.  Met up with Fisherwoman for lunch on the last day and then headed home.  I was hoping to “Level up to 102” while I was there but by the time we started home it wasn’t in the bag.  Looked at my numbers and OldZee and I put our heads together thinking maybe it was doable on the trip home??

Well I – or rather WE did it!!  I leveled up to #102 – Very cool and it ended the Weekend Gilroy trip on an up note for me!!

Summertime in NoCal – Caching and Fishing

July and August has been very busy with Fishing trips and Geocaching adventures. From sunup to sundown we have been out the door at what we call “zero stupid thirty” and on the trail or on the river, hunting down Geocaches, Salmon, Munzees, whatever is the challenge at the time.

In July Munzee had their 2nd Anniversary so they were publishing birthday cakes, the challenge was they were only active for 12 hours and once they were gone they were gone, but once you “captured” one it was 100 points!!

August brought the 31 day challenge for Geocaching, your reward is a new souvenir for everyday that you find and log a cache.  Find one a day for the month of August.  In the middle of the month was International Caching day that hosted its own souvenir.

August also brings the return of the Salmon up there on the Sacramento River.  I have some great friends (who happen to be Geocachers too) that took me Salmon fishing!!  When we weren’t fishing we stopped along the banks of the Sacramento and either grabbed a cache or placed some!!
