One of the highlights of the area is a series of three caches called The Triad. The Triad includes Groundspeak HQ, the Original Stash Tribute Plaque, and and "Mission 9: Tunnel of Light" AKA "the APE cache, as it was part of the promotion for the newest Planet Of The Apes movie. Our primary goal on Friday was to snag the HQ cache.

After we finished with HQ, we drove 4 hours back to southern Portland through some of the finest rain and traffic the Seattle area has to offer to attend a large meet and greet caching event with the local caching organization GEOregon. There were over 150 cachers there, which is 10x more cachers than I have ever seen in one place at one time.
After the event we went out and found a few night caches, before finally calling it quits. I returned to the hotel at 11:30pm exhausted after experienced an epic caching day.
