SETX Spring Fling

Village Creek State Park, Lumberton, TX - Site #6 - 2 nights.  ~160 miles from home

I headed out for the campground on Friday after getting off work at 3 pm.  I had the camper all loaded up and hooked up to the car on the way to work.  It was about  a 3 hour drive and when I got there the office was already closed for the day. I would just have to pick an open site and check in the next morning.  I met a cacher named MudFrog and he offered to help me get the camper set up.

After everything was up and ready to go, we went over to the Pavillion for the first event. I met a few more cachers from the SETX area. We ended up at the campsite of P.J. Trahan and family.  At 11:00 pm, the new caches posted and we hit the trails.  We found one FTF. We looked for a long time on others with no luck. We found some poker run boxes though. We were on the trails until 1:30 am.

I got up later that morning (which would have been early had we not been up so late already) and hit the trails again in the daylight.  One that we couldn't find had already disappeared and it had been replaced. We found it with a few other cachers.  We saw TheKJun1 on the trail and he was keeping a sharp eye on a snake up in a shrub. One person stayed on snake patrol and the rest of us looked for the cache.  I found it!  FTF for us!  This park has a lot of really nicely kept trails.

I then gathered up all of the GxProxy stuff and headed for the Pvillion for the main event as I was setting out a table for them. There was lots of good food and good sales. I didn't win any door prizes though. :(

The after-event was at P.J.'s campsite again.  Several of us went to find a night cache and a letterbox hybrid - my favorite!

Sunday morning, I picked up a real letterbox (not a geocache) and the TPWD Parks Challenge cache and then loaded up to head home.  I stopped on the way home to add another virtual cache on Opencaching.US.

This was the event of the chiggers!  Everyone is itching and miserable.
