Wednesday Night Ghost Fright!

So, it looks like your old pal soup has the Goldmember!.

 

This meeting will be centered around Portands Shanghai Tunnels.

What does that mean? GPS and Ghosts! How cool is that? (its VERY cool Mr. Soup!)

 

Here are the gory details: I need at least 15 people to attend. Cost is $11 per person. It is worth the money. Flashlights are provided. Once I get a decent headcount, I will then work out the payment info with everyone(on a later post).

 

I am still trying to contact the tour operators on a specific date. Right now, I can say it can be any day.

 

Email me at soup_r_man@hotmail.com and let me know if you can attend. How many others you might bring, and if Wednesday is a good day for you.

 

And dont forget to bring enough snacks for Scooby, since he is possessed!

I've always wanted to check out those tunnels. While I'd like to attend, it's difficult for me to commit until I know when it will be (kids). Put me down as a strong maybe.

 

btw, after reading some of the stuff on the 'Scooby is possessed' site, I don't know whether I should laugh because it's a joke site, or cry because there are actually people who believe that stuff!

 

I especially enjoyed reading the general rules section.

That is the best time I was able to get for a tour of the tunnels. This gives you ample time to check and/or change your schedule. It is a blast, and well worth the $11 bucks.

 

If your interested, I need to know ASAP. I will have to figure out the payment info (I gotta pay them a week in advance). I trust "most" of you...

 

PLease post here if you are planning on joining us for this treat.

 

The responses I have so far...

 

Bodoni and Jenny

Slinger91 (hopefully)

Me

 

and maybe 6 of my coworkers.

 

And as an added bonus, I will place a virtual cache in the underground. Find a ghost, log a find!

 

Lets hear from y'all. -C

that's the day before my first day of summer school. summer school starts at 8am and it's organic chemistry, so showing up reeking of gin ranting about ghosts may not be the best form. so put me down as a MAYBE unless you move it to a week later.

 

kisses, lauren

 

If there's gravity, then how you explain birds!?!

Looks like some folks (TJ, Oregone, Lauren, and possibly others) are having trouble with this date.

 

The date is not set in stone (since I havent recieved a callback from the tour organizer).

 

Is there a date that would be better for everyone? I would like as many GC's to attend as possible.

 

How about you post what dates you CAN go. That might be easier

Ok, looks like as long as I have the event after 7pm or so, then most people can make it. When I return from my little holiday, I will call the Tunnel Tourguide dude. I dont understand why he has not called me back... too many bong hits

 

Anyway, have a fantastic 4th everyone!! Dont set yourself (or anyone you like) ablaze.

 

Those "snake" type fireworks are AWESOME baby! icon_rolleyes.gif

Soup and all,

This is dasein here. This is my/our first post here ever. My personal computer geek "Mr. dasein" is already snoozin' (has to go to work tomorrow, and I don't...ha ha), so I hope I am doing this correctly. We'd sure love to hookup at local cachers' Wednesday night get-togethers. Per previous post in same thread, so far it sounds like PDX Shanghai Tunnels July 17, 7:30pm? That would be good with us. Pretty much any day (ever), 7pm or later would be great. We have no kids (on purpose), just 4 great pets, so as long as we know a couple days ahead of time, we're there. Our good friend Shmoe, who we introduced to geocaching a couple weekends ago, will also be quite interested, I'm sure. So that would be 3 of us, possibly a 4th. Looking forward to hearing more.

Well, postpones it anyway. They (tourguide) finally left a cryptic (fractal?) message on my answering machine stating that the 17th would not work due to some rug or quilt show (sounded like rug).

 

Honestly, that is what they said. icon_razz.gif

 

Anyhow, they mentioned the 24th of July would be better, at 8pm. Its a Wednesday. I havent cemented the deal, since I cant contact them tonite (the supernatural needs an early bed time).

 

I know DenaliNW, TJ, and Oregone will not be able to come icon_frown.gif Howz about the rest?

 

Oh, and do you want have an interim GoldenSpike meeting? Maybe at the "White Eagle"? They have ghosts there too. icon_wink.gif

Soup,

Count dasein in (both of us) for July 24th Shanghai Tunnels. Been trying to get ahold of Shmoe to see if he's free to come too. Will let you know ASAP.

 

We'd sure love to get together with the group tomorrow too, but this is such a super busy week. Who knows, we could wind up meeting you afterall.

 

Until whenever icon_rolleyes.gif,

dasein

(I just put the little rolly-eye guy above 'cause I thought he was cute!)

The 24th will work for me, but that will reduce my count to just one. Tomorrow will not work though. I'm taking my Sis and Bro-in-law to see Frogz. If some of you meet at Absolutely again you might want to call the Hollywood Bowl and see if they have A/C. It's only a couple of blocks away and right at the Hollywood MAX stop. I hope you have fun! I'd like to bowl again . . . in a COOLER place!

Are there still ticket available for tomorrow nights show (well it's 3am so tonight's show)? Maybe we should all do that?

 

Has anyone else noticed that the whole Geocaching thing has kind of dropped into the background and it's just kind of a social thing now? icon_wink.gif Not that I mind... Geeting to know all of you is like finding the greatest cache ever icon_biggrin.gif heheheh

 

Oh.. And LaurenCat.. I left a note for you. Did you get it? icon_wink.gif

Well, those herb-heads hiding in the underground tunnels are STILL not home! icon_mad.gif I am going to continue to bug them.. constantly. For now, just figure we WILL meet for the Shanghai Tunnels on 7/24 at 8pm. I will give the important details in a couple days.

 

As for tonite: I dont think I can join y'all. I got band practice for a show this weekend.

I run the lights.. >switch on, switch off<

 

Interested? I could hid a cache there.. Hmmm..

It will be July 13th, 2002 Saturday at the Mt. Tabor Theatre. Band is named Logos Eye. Always lots of fun. And I got a LASER!!!! LOOK OUT.

For some reason, I think that should be the new tagline under your picture icon_smile.gif

 

Tungsten just called and said that he would like to meet up at the Rock Creek Tavern at 8pm. Actually, he said he'll be there even if anyone else is or not. Sounds like that's where I'm gunna be...

 

Come and join us!
