Couldn't pass up the chance to meet with fellow cachers even if it was the coldest day of the year! But the lodge was cozy and the company, of course, was the best. So good to see familiar faces again and to meet a few new ones. Looking forward to tne next meeting.

Although I did miss most of the outdoor activities (ok, I wimped out!) I did get to see the falls under ice. After viewing it only in the other three seasons, it was quite breathtaking!!

Thank you, DX, for the lovely afternoon. Can't wait for the next!

Had a wonderful time seeing all our geocaching friends. Wished we could have cached with everyone else; but we found all the caches prior to this day. Hope to see you all at the next gathering.
Thanks for the great day.

The man and his hat were there. It was great to touch base again with the past geocaching buddies of the crowd and to meet a few newbees to the sport as well. Games, activities, a band,refreshments and a bunch of little ones with grinning faces highlighted my day. That is until my arm was twisted to go caching.

It has been a while since we've had a chance to do anything that pertains to caching... This was time well spent. We enjoyed the company of old friends and we met some new ones. A bit testy on the outside today but the warmth of our fellow cachers made the day bearable. Thank you for a great day and the quilt was extroardinary.

A beautiful winter day at the Erie County Winterfest. We very much enjoyed ourselves, the honor of signing the quilt, meeting other cashers, seeing all the activities made this truly a special day. True to her word DX challenged provided 2 bags of delicious popcorn as our reward for logging in at the event cash log. Thank you, it was nice.

I'm not sure how to log this but I was there!

I met a bunch of new cachers including Roadkill (yes that hat does exist...), Balloonpilot, Chickenlips, Brogan, Dekaner, Burkmom, and, of course, members of the Hilton Family.

Thanks for the fun get together!

OH Man! Just found out about it. I made other arrangements just yesterday. Dang it all to heck. For now, put me down as possible but improbable but I'll see what I can do.
