Portkey Mile

Some of the kids on last week's hike had taken the stamp and pad from PORTKEY MILE Letterbox Hybrid, I didn't know until we got home so today Kristie and I hiked back up to return it. It was so beautiful up there with even more fall colors.

We went exploring after we dropped off the stamp, we saw some grouse and woodpeckers, we bushwhacked up a crazy hill and hid some caches... it was a lot of fun!

Maple Canyon

Kristie and I took her family (her kids, her siblings, her sibling's kids, her Mom) on a gorgeous hike up Maple Canyon, we stopped at all the geocaches along the way, the kids got to ride a horse, it was a great time.


It's been a hard couple weeks full of hate mail, threats of suspension, more cache stealing than ever and just a general uprising of the usual "enemies" and their new recruits... I'm not really sure where to go from here..... or what to say.

Is it too much to dream of a geoworld without geodrama?

Some cachers try to find a cache every day, some try to see how long they can do that... my best was 166 days in a row before I missed a day, that was hard... so I am impressed with people like DrJay who have huge numbers... as far as I know the top in the world are :

1. frivlas - 1,969
2. DrJay - 1,358
(and about 10 more with over 1,000 )

10-10-10 Event

I had a lot of fun at the 10-10-10 Event. Brian (PeanutsParents) set up a fun game where we had an hour to go look for at many "10's" as we could find, I was on a team with Justin and Loralee and we got 3rd place with 115 10's.

I had my monthly Springville hot dog event, called it Halloweenies this month (thanks to the Morty's).

firennice brought his new camera to show off, it was awesome. He took the above photo is Kristie and I.

I like these traditional events, it is fun to see the local cacher friends so regularly.

Fort Heber Corners

Some new caches in Heber I was excited to go get were hidden at the locations of the corners of the old fort, Fort Heber Northeast Corner #1, Fort Heber Northwest Corner #4 and Fort Heber Southwest Corner #3.

I am reminded of a couple of my caches...

I also got Heber's 'Gross' Cache while in the area.
