63 – 28

No it is not the score of a seriously lopsided game of basketball or football. It was the variation in temperature we experienced on Sunday. I swear it had to be hotter than 63 at the event we attended in Yuma. I was wearing a long sleeved t shirt though so my idea may have been a bit off. We arrived home to 28 degrees and a foot of snow in the driveway at 21:30 hrs. It took me an hour to shovel the driveway and I have been battling the white stuff for the last 2 days now. Isn’t the diversity of everything in AZ wonderful?

Either way, the family attended the Yuma Event #6 and everyone had a wonderful time. The food was amazing to say the least. Tri Tip BBQ with coleslaw, beans, tortilla. Mmmmm good fo sure. I had also reserved two new geocoins to help pay for the event. A beautiful copper and gold coin each has the state of AZ on one side and the other has the ocean to ocean highway bridge on the other. Very neat indeed.

There were lots of give away prizes and plenty of mingling going on. I was able to meet and greet many people I already knew from past events, and met a few new ones. You all know who you are. Johnny was able to see AJ.JR which is always a highlight for him at any event. He sure do like them people, I have to say I enjoy their company as well.

The event and the following CITO made it possible for us to work on the One Busy Day: The Arizona Icon Challenge, where a cacher or team needs to get six different cache types on one day in order to be able to grab the actual cache. We were able to do this and will be grabbing the actual cache sometime in March. We also were working on the Arizona DeLorme Challenge. We picked up an additional 5 pages, which leaves us only 2 more to go, pages 16 and 17 in northern AZ.

We really enjoyed ourselves and needed a break after a rough couple of weeks prior. The date shakes in Dateland on the way home were exceptional and we recommend that anyone who likes dates stop and get one. Good stuff. We saw a few cachers dashing out behind the restaurant on the way in, so I followed and were able to grab a cache there as well. Thanks for the help Team TKW 98, couldn’t have done it without ya.

Three day weekend coming up for most. Where you headed? Are you caching? Where will we be? Guess you will have to check back later to find out.

All for now,

Mark & Johnny
