Geocaching Block Party 2013

Shannon and I decided to go to Seattle on Aug 17th for the day to check out the Geocaching Block Party 2013. Before we got down there, we had to pick up a few caches so the block party would be Shannon’s 1000th find. We also did a little shopping as well. Sooooo we were just a little late, but caught the tail end of it and still had a great time!

Blue Moon Burgers… We’ll be back for you later! Great food!

Signed the board to prove I was there!

Like I’ve said earlier, Shannon and I arrived really late, but it was still cool wandering around the area. They had different booths, free swag, and a bunch of food trucks.

Now that the huge crowds have cleared out, it’s time to do some caching/sightseeing! First stop was the Aurora Bridge. They’re always great to photograph.

A really awesome geocache. You had to find the combination to be able to get into it and sign the log. Throughout the night we were impressed at how much time and thought were put into these caches.

We also found the troll that lives under the bridge. There was also a new type of “test” cache they released. It’s called Lab Caches. You go to the area and find a secret geocaching code or phrase somewhere… And you type in the phrase/code on the website to log it. Interesting idea, but not sure if it’ll catch on.

Random awesome artwork we found! Love it!

Thank you Groundspeak for hosting such an awesome party and all the time/effort put into setting up the caches, venue, etc etc. Will definitely try to be back next year! And hopefully I’ll be there earlier next time.
