What a weekend GeoWoodstock was!
This will be the final in my series about the event and the weekend full of geocaching. I’m going to do a wrap of sorts here to talk about some numbers and such. I’m still looking back and enjoying the weekend that we had down there and can’t wait for the Geocaching Block Party in Seattle in August.
But, I wanted to do a tally of some things we did this weekend:
- 5 states (New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia)
- 150 caches found
- 11 events (including one mega)
- 3 Earthcaches
- 3 Mystery caches
- 2 Virtuals
- 2 Lab caches
- 1 Letterbox
- Of all those found caches, a combined 9,445 favorite points!
I also reached the 4,000 finds mark, and set a new record by finding 85 caches in one day!
In the end, it was one heck of a great time. Two of us are tentatively planning a weeklong road trip to GeoWoodstock XIV next year in Denver. It will include many states, lots of caching fun and a trip to remember.
I haven’t done many road trips like the one I’ll eventually start to plan, but I’m hoping for an epic week full of fun and crazy geocaching, maybe a baseball game or three, and maybe even a disc golf round or two.
This GeoWoodstock was great in that I got to catch up with some people I met at my first GW, as well as others I’ve met through the years. Geocaching is a cool community full of people from different backgrounds and lives. It makes for a diverse and fun crowd. My hope is to make GeoWoodstock an annual trip to catch up with friends and utilize it as an event that becomes one I can’t miss.
This year was a fantastic event. Maybe the 2016 event can be find No. 5,000!
