Tarryall's Sweet 16 - July 2nd in West and Southwest Posted June 25, 2016 July 2nd will be 16 years since I placed Tarryall (GC18) for Colorado's first Geocache (actually it was originally known as a "GPS Stash" back then, but that name wasn't felt to be something that would grow the sport / game in good direction... lol). Anyway, for the last few years, I've been meaning to have a "party" of sorts for Tarryall, and I figured a "Sweet 16" for this year could be fun reason, plus Tarryall's birthday is on a Saturday too and basically part of the holiday weekend. My plan (which could change, but I'm going to try to hold to this) is to get up to Tarryall by 10am, and just hang out for a chunk of the day. I'll bring a cake (or cupcakes, not sure yet, but what's a birthday party without some sort of cake) for anyone that happens to show up that day (whether they know about this or not). NOTE: there is road construction on Park 77 with long delays from recent logs, (not sure if they are doing that on the weekends though) so plan accordingly. May be better to use Park 31 (dirt / washboard) which comes around to Park 77 to the north of Tarryall, and then come back south to it (but then I'm not even sure where the construction is at right now so that may not be a good option either. If anyone knows for sure, let me know). We are planning to visit Tarryall on July 1st, on our way from San Diego via Durango. Looks like we may be too early for the festivities, but I'd be really grateful for an update on the construction. I'm not sure our vehicle will be able to handle the washboard road!
