12-12-12: The Date Of A Lifetime

 Today is 12-12-12 day, likely the last time any of us will see a date like this again.  To celebrate Geocachers everywhere are heading out to find caches and attend events in honour of 12-12-12 day.

Groundspeak is even offering a souvenir to any cachers who are active today.

Tonight I took the family to an event held for the local cachers.  We had a pretty decent turn out for our area - 30 or so folks, including two babies.

It was at a steak house/buffet, so in honour of the day I ate 12 different things (fried chicken, cucumbers, carrots, green peppers, cottage cheese, chicken and dumplings, mashed potato, sweet potato, ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies).  Afterwards we raffled off prizes, then we sat around and swapped trail stories.

All in all a fun evening spent with some geocachers - and I got a souvenir to boot.  Not a bad way to spend some time.

Here are some more pics from the event, starting with a shot of the room as folks were eating:

Festive cow being festive.

Awesome! I celebrated by taking the day off and logging 12 caches on 12-12-12. Including my first virtual and event. (blog post to follow with full details).

I must say that my favourite picture is Abby's. Especially her onesie/shirt! Good thing I'm not a FTF hound!
