Cache in Trash Out

I attended my first Cache in Trash Out event today. It was mostly a Scout aimed event, but other cachers we welcome to join. I was a little worried going there, because only 3 people had marked themselves as "Will Attend." It turns out most of the scouts had only cached a little or not at all... and them/their parents didn't have caching names... so there ended up being about 20 or so people.

We ended up getting everything in the little park picked up in about an hour. Then there was a small geocaching explanation for the kids and parents in attendance. After that, we all went and grabbed the cache that was 300 ft. away. I sure hope no muggles were around ;-P

Picture is blurry for obvious reasons... these aren't my kids!

I felt a little out of place among all the kids, but it was a fun event. It's always good to clean up the neighborhood when you can!

  1. Sounds like a great outing and cause...glad you had a good turn out. Have a wonderful Sunday!

  2. Good for you! We haven't done an official one yet. We do carry bags in the cache bag and often pick trash up and carry it out with us.
