WE HAVE ARRIVED

Well, it has happened. velocache.net is now a fully operational battle station. Prepare yourselves.

Before I digress, which I am known to do, let me start off by giving some credit and handing out some thanks. This would not have happened without you all. You know who you are. Thank you. The new site would not be in existance without Buttars, if you run into him, give him a hug and buy him a beer. HUGE thank yous to the veterans out there who have kept this afloat in times of trouble and triumph...I have personal things to say to you that will have to wait until we have a face to face.

At the pokercache party on September 19 I would really like to take a bit of all of your time and preach a little about "the game". We'll see, I will probably just get drunk and cry a lot.

SO. Go to the site. Familiarize yourself. It is different than the one we play on now but can do all of the things we do now AND MUCH MUCH MORE. You will need to create an account. It is free and always will be for players. I realize some of you have already been in and have looked around but it is time for everyone to come on board. Texting from a phone to the site works. E-mailing too. There is a great forum feature that we can all cache ourselves in as well. This site is still in beta. It is not finished so now is the time to see if we can break it.

For now, play around. Posting "real" caches is not off limits but I think it might serve us better to get really comfortable with the new toy before we go "live". Post pictures of your cats and dogs. Go to the forum and talk about bikes. Have fun.

LOVE to you all. -A. Mortician

I was touched to see so many velocachers today at the memorial for Mr. Chu. I hope we helped raise the visibility of bikes at least a little so we don't have to convene again under such sad circumstances.

This cache is in a place safe from cars, but not from Bromus tectorum seeds in your socks.

#29 Found














Thanks Treker, nothing goes better with a
Bud Light than an Audubon bird call.
Needed a better memory or I phone for #24
but think I was close.

#33

Been thinking about stashing something here for a while. Love this spot.

Get it!

Oops! Forgot to attach the other photos...

Cache Math...

Where have all the caches gone???

    10 ORIGINAL deployment tubes (when the game was changed to deployment system)
+  7 more deployed by Wino (due to not enough caches in circulation)
+ 11 deployed by Captain Fran (the muppets)
+ 666  (found by Triton over a week ago, waiting for redeployment) 
-------------------------------------
=  29 deployment tubes!

-  1 in Spokane (probably won't see ever again)
-  1 from Jimbo (lost in the foothills)
-  2 Legitimate MIA tubes (animal and #16)
-  3 from Mal, Anonymus, and Cockey Bitch? (waiting for deployment, all found over a week ago)
-----------------------------------------
=  22 tubes...

5 are deployed right now............ WTF, am I missing something? I just wanna play!

Thanks Gypsies! I'm going to assign the bisque to my lunchpail and the condom to the dustbin. (Its wrapper looks a little bedraggled.) The jaw harp will come in handy at Rockygrass.

Sorry it took so long for this one to be re-deployed.
I've been moving and haven't had time to post.
Good luck riders. GOOOO!!!!!
