Power Caching with the Ventura Kids!

2 07 2009

Last Sunday, I decided to chronicle my day of power caching with a few short videos taken throughout. Riding along with the Ventura Kids was full of laughs and logbooks, as usual. We ended up with 96 finds. Whew!

I begin my day of caching with the Ventura Kids.

Our first find in Redlands is a light pole.

The Ventura Kids discuss their “rules” for geocaching.

I get to see the expert technique for finding a cache in the ivy.

The long walk back across the park…

We meet up with The Devious Max Power and TerraGirl, who join us for the rest of the day. Sandy shows just how FAST the VKs are at finding – truly.

We encounter literod at a cache, but he opts not to try to keep up.

We’ve found way more than 10 caches per hour, so Sandy “lets” us have lunch.

Here we are at Rubio’s – this is a photo, not a video, I know. Judging by his smile, I think this is Steve’s favorite part of the day!

We encounter MissAmerica1 and Pacholik at a cache.

At the end of this clip, Sandy finds a cache with a bug on it – check out her reaction!

We search for a cache near a large fountain and pond.

We DNF the fountain cache.

Urban off-roading!

At the last cache of the day, I run out of room on my camera’s memory card!

Until next week, happy power caching and Happy 4th of July!

I found that fountain cache that you guys DNF’ed. Before the Bash it was about 25 feet off down from where everyone was searching. I like the videos.

“Are there fish in here”?
I think that I will forever attribute this to Elin. I’ve covered enough trail with you to known the value of a single cache. If there were fish in there, it would have made for an exciting video as you cleared the crowd out.
