  1. Keep in mind that if you pick small towns with no large airports fares are going to be much higher. With convenience (airports/hotels/car rental) come congestion.

    Also, with kids and holidays, different areas/states take different holidays, so perhaps summer would be best for most if this is an issue.

    Okay, so the San Francisco Bay Area has it's share of urban congestion, but we do have:


    • two major airports (SF and Oakland) both connected to BART (one of the best public transportation systems bar none) which provides incredible access to most any spot in the bay area sans traffic.


    • and a temperate climate which means a great location just about anytime of the year.

  2. I think it would be great if the next Geocoinfest was a whole weekend long event. I didn't get a chance to meet half of the people who attended and that really bummed me out. I'd prefer for the event to be anywhere in the West or Midwest. Since I'm from a fairly small city I found the traffic all around the area a bit overwhelming, it'd be nice if we could have it in a less trafficed area.

    It would be great if the geocachers with children could attend also without having to pull their kids out of school. The first weekend of spring break might be nice or sometime in the summer too.


    I totally agree! :(

  3. If we do it February again, a warm climate will be appreciated! Vegas would be great!

    Somethings to think about. It was about 85 degrees F Saturday for the event. Temecula has all of the amenities of southern California, weather, charm, great caches, nice scenery, but not the crowding, traffic and other problems of LA, SD, OC, or even Las Vegas.


    I would vote for another friendly town, at a time of year with good weather, and no bugs....


    There are many suitable venues in the San Francisco Bay Area... anyone in THEGBA reading this thread? :D

  4. I can't believe it's over! There just was not enough time to meet and talk and trade and cache with everyone. It was just plain fun. Congrats to the event committee for organizing such a wonderful experience. This was my first event ever and it was really a thrill to finally match up real people to the infamous geonicks of forum members. Nicolo, Nero, Whitebear, Nscaler (showed me his geofairy), The Moop Along, Jake, Raine (thanks for the personal), POS, MustangJoni, and The MooseMob (my secret cupid!) just to name a few. Thanks for the chilis georeynozos. And thanks to all the vendors that sponsored all of the nifty swag.


    Then, the icing on the cake, geopoker! Great fun was had by all. We started out way to serious at table #1. (thanks to TMOCM for posting a picture of the table seating chart - elsewise I'd never of known with whom I had played against) We all played very conservative and table talk was kept to a minimum. With winning hands few and far between, I was pretty much blinded off the table soon after the first break. Yes, that was me sitting next to you Atlantagal; I never got to say a word to Dorkfish, though you kept your eyes hidden under that baseball cap most of the time, you got the nod as the real player at the table; and if I'd known that I was sitting next to Crazycavelover, I would have asked you to give my regards to Fluttershy and please thank her for my bee. BUT, the real kicker is that my wife Camilla made the final table and ultimately landed sixth place! (thanks to TMOCM again for the event pics of her sitting next to AG at the final table) Congrats and thanks to SouthBayDay for winning and for his generosity. Camilla adds an extra thanks!


  5. :laughing: Yippee! Took a leisurely two day drive to get here. Had an outstanding chiliburger at Mad Madeleine's and bought a cigar at the smoke shop. Really anxious about playing poker. :huh: Still haven't been able to decide what coins to put up for ante so I brought all my coins to choose from. Can't wait to meet everyone! :P

    Here's how LE's will work. In about a week I will open reservations. 1 week later I will snapshot the reservations, and enough LE's will be ordered to cover reservations at that time. Reservations placed after that point will still be filled, but will not be eligible for LE's. Also LE's will not be reminted after that point (thus the "limited" part of the name :rolleyes: ).


    So find a partner and combine your order to get your LE! You've got about a week to figure it out :o


    Is there any chance you can put this off until after Geocoinfest? I don't know about anyone else but I personally will be offline for almost a week and will likely miss the reservation period.


    Hate to miss a crack at this new crake... :huh:

    arrgh! :blink:

  8. The order that geocoins are listed on a profile by it's graphic id # (or better yet I suspect an unseen id number that closely represent (but not completely) the ids of the graphics (icons)) is pretty much the order that they were made, or atleast submitted for approval to gc.com. I've maintained a list here, but stopped updating it when gc.com created their new trackables section as it now lists all of the icons.




    I guess everyone's hitting your site Res2100 because the server won't let me in! Says you've exceeded your data transfer limit. :unsure: I hope this isn't a burden on you because I'd really like to see the list. Please don't take it down. :P
