International Geocaching Day

Saturday, August 18th was international geocaching day and since Erin and I have been doing a lot of geocaching lately I figured we'd try to cram as much into this day as possible. We started with the pancake feed at Bean Days in Horace. I'd heard about the this from a couple of guys at work and figured it would be fun to swing by. After pancakes we headed out to do some caching in Hawley. There were a couple of caches North of Dillworth that we stopped to get along the way.  This was one we found, one of our favorites of all time.
Pour water in to get the cache, it also recycles the water so other cachers don't have to bring their own

We had a few DNFs in Hawley including one that we had a long hike to. Once we found the trails we were suposed to be on it went a little more smoothly. There were lots of berries along the path.

After that we headed out to Detroit Lakes for an event at Zorbaz. This was our first geocaching event, and we weren't quite sure what to expect. Initially we had some trouble locating the group, but the event organizer recognized us from some pictures we'd  posted online and invited us over to join the group. We had fun talking about various caching experiences and met a few of the people from Fargo.

After Zorbaz we went and did some caching near Dunton Locks before the mosquitoes forced us out of the area. After that we picked up a few caches around the lake and grabbed supper before heading home. For the day we wound up with 24 caches and extended our consecutive day streak to 48.
