Well, it has happened. 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

Thanks to all

One reason I joined this game was to have incentive to ride. Like the Tarahumara Indians running for their ball, this game has been a great incentive for me to ride. I set a goal this year of 1000 bike miles by this Nov 1, and I reached it today, several months early, in a large part due to this game. Just wanted to say thanks to Bart and Brook for starting the game, all the players for playing, and to all the great people I have met so far. Ride on!


  1. Oh, Slim you changed your name and have become so sensitive but I do agree with you except not on the Tarahumara thing. My question to you, what is the ratio of find to miles.

  2. way to go T___. You are an inspiration, really. Thank you also for your words, they mean a lot. I am back from my Portland mission and ready to do it to it for awhile. THANK YOU ALL for showing me that this little baby can truck right along without me. This would NOT have been possible by WINO and HUGE thanks need to go out to him right now.

    Be expecting a big post up from me in a few days. Don't worry, no changes in store whatsoever.

  3. spoting0 - not sure, that will be data for next year's spreadsheet. A mental guess would be 15 miles per cache average.

  4. Wino did a bang up job. Things were pretty much the same.

  5. Welcome back mortician, congrats Slim, and big thanks Wino.

    I gotta get back in the game . . .
