Can't wait to get up there Gimpy, I've had the quantity on my trip but the quality ones are few and far between, from everything I hear you guys have some great caches up there.  So I'll have to make a weekend of it, maybe right after I get home and before I start working again.  Granted I'll be broke, beaten down, and starving but hey I'll at least know I can spend a few days and hit some great caches.

Hey.....To celebrate the return of our wanderer, why not create a progressive dinner caching trip for mikechim?

Granted I'm not the best cook around (I'm better known for my quilts) but I can rise to the occasion.

Something like breakfast in Buffalo, lunch in Akron and dinner Rochester.........with coordinates for each cachers house that is participating rather than their address............

.......Once we get this whole buying and selling the house thing done........I'm hopiing for a Hilton adventure......New Zealand sounds most excellant.......just gotta find a speech and language conference there so I can connect it to work.........

Dx you are a genius. :smart
The progressive meal and crash point caches will be a first. Count Road Kill in. Not only do I offer a meal (or two) but also a place to crash just 4 miles from Letchworth State Park and the 6 or 7 caches there. As I see it, all Mike has to do is to say: Ill do it and contact those who make offers. If you want Mike to contact you, place your offer and e-mail address here in this forum. Lets start the ball rolling.

Mikes Road Kill Cache Stop. :wave
1 or 2 meals, a place (spare bedroom) to crash, a cache day with Road Kill (doubling as a tour guide to Letchworth) and it can be any day of the week.

Mike - I would be honored to be selected as part of your progressive cache tour.

Road Kill - rsafford@frontiernet.net :grinnin

Hey Roadkill........

Me a genius?  Wish I could find a blushing smiley

But YEAH lets do it..........

Here's my offering for the merry wanderers parussal

Mike's Akron stop and Tolkien talk

Mike you can check out the very best caches in Akron (ok so they are the only ones) and at the same time spin some Tolkien tales......the young ones enjoy talking about the characters.  Butterfygirl is most interested in Tom Bombadil.  she made points with her upcomming 6th grade teacher just by mentioning Tolkien!!!

So count us in for a meal or two or three, a place to hang and a part of your progressive cache tour.

Mikes on the move!

He left our place yesterday and is headed North through L.A. and up to Sequoia National Park.  Im sure hell be happy to get back among some real trees. (I know hes looking forward to getting back and seeing you guys.)  Things are really parched and dried up down here.

I didnt have time to go caching with him but he graciously visited a few caches I set out. Check out his log for Cedar Creek. http://www.navicache.com/cgi-bin/db/displaycache2.pl?CacheID=353

I dont think I could have kept up with him if I had gone. ;)

Wow thanks everyone that sounds great, I'm definately up for it.  Would type longer but I"m out of time, hunting a Tolkien cache out here (can't touch mine *I say humbly*) and locked my keys in my truck.  Just stopped for a sec, off to Stanford, Berkeley, then the golden gate bridge (alcatraz if I can get tickets) and up to redwoods.

Greetings from Denver everyone,

Actually have a little more web time here.  The time spent down at Rob's was a blast especially that last cache, I highly recomend Rob's caches when your down there.  As you may or may not have noticed my travels have picked up speed.  Unfortunately while I as at Rob's I found out that my grandfather (whom I'm very close to) has terminal lung cancer and only has 3 months left so I've dropped 95% of my trip plans and am hurrying home.  So no Mexico, Yosemite, etc and no more backpacking trips or really any exciting stories.  Just dayhiking for a few hours in the parks i do hit, checking out the grad schools, and doing 1 or 2 caches in every state that are on the way.  Staying with my friend  Maggie in Denver for the 4th then heading out the mourning of the 5th and hope to be home th 9th or 10th.  Ahh well, it was a fun trip while it lasted.  I'm still definately up for the trip out to NY, though it will probably be a little while after I've been home, accessed the sitation and spent some quality time with my grandfather.  But I repeat I will definately make it to the Navicache area this summer, and can't wait to meet all of you, or in DX's case see you again.

Driving hard,
Mike

Greetings everyone from Vanderbilt campus in Nashville TN.  My trip is pretty much done, driving from here back home (after hitting caches in TN, KY, and WV of course).  Been spending the majority of my time the last week driving.  Did visit my friend Maggie in Denver for a few days including the 4th.  Played sand volleyball at her buddies apartment (took me a few games but I got back to form, well not totally but it could be argued I was the best player out there, still didn't have my serve though).  But that was sweet got to play sand volleyball which I love, ate ohh did I eat, 6 hotdogs and 2 pieces of chicken, plus chips.  Plus after the game the two girls from the other team that we were playing joined me in the outdoor hot tub (one of whom a decent blonde had been flirting with me all game)  :^: before I get a bunch of virtual high fives of DX rolls her eyes at me  :0o the blonde quit talking to me all of a sudden (strangely enough around the time her fiance showed up) and the other one's boyfriend had been on their team playing.  Ahh well....
My poison oak also started in Denver, must have picked it up in Southern CA somewhere, it's a pain and getting worse, never had oak or ivy before.  Also had to remove two ticks from..... well the last place a guy wants to remove ticks from, a few days ago in Arkansas.   Anyway time to hit a TN cache, check out campus, and hit the road.

Happy Caching
Mike

Great to have you back. :wave  Can't say as I really missed you though. Seems you left a paper trail of interesting reading to keep us all entertained. So when do your start your Western New Your tour progressive dinner caching?  Are you game for the game?  :)

I am definately game for the game, not only have I been looking forward to meeting everyone, and finding some great caches, but I can't pass up food and loding!  I had originally planned to do it basically right now when I got back, however I see me waiting a few weeks now so I can spend some quality time with my grandfather.  After that I'll schedule off work for a Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday or something like that and I'm all over it.  Contrary to my nature I'll kinda sorta plan it out and post at least a week in advance and sort things out with everyone beforehand.

Thanks again everyone and it's good to be back,

Mike
