Mega Day - Part 2

Yuma Mega

While wondering around the booths at the Yuma Mega event, I came across Sonny and Sandy of Podcacher. I introduced myself and took a picture with the geocelebrities.


If you haven't listened to PodCacher, what are you waiting for?! You can listen to it right on their website or check it out on itunes. I like to listen to it on road trips - while I'm caching or not. I recorded a little intro with them so you might hear me on there in the future... I'm not holding my breath, but it was still fun to do!

There was some downtime during the event... and luckily some caches nearby. KennyV and I grabbed the ones in Yuma and then strolled over to California to grab one.

There were all kinds of TBs to discover at the event. There were regular TBs, shirts, hats, signs...

Tattoos.....

....and even a Groundspeak Lackey.

S*W*A*G, the geocaching group that hosted the event provided a FREE lunch to everyone that attended. It was AMAZING. 

mega  Mmm 

Tri Tip with beans, tortilla, salsa and a delicious cookie. The cookie recipe is posted on the Mega page, I cannot wait to make some! Mmmmm!

Lunch was followed up by a raffle, where I won a sunburn. A bad one. My face is still pealing a little... After the raffle, the event was over and we immediately started the CITO. The CITO (Cache In, Trash Out) extended well beyond the section of the part we used. With so many people it was hard to find any trash. I managed to find a few small things and a lonesome shoe.

Well that is it for the Mega, but not for the weekend...........

Have you ever found anything interesting/bizarre while CITOing? Have you ever been to a CITO event?
FYI The 11th Annual Cache In Trash Out Weekend is scheduled for April 20 and 21, 2013.

  1. We been to a few CITO's. The oddest thing we've found was a motorcycle while doing a CITO in the Allegheny National Forest. The motorcycle was trashed out with everything else.

  3. I try to go every time to our local CITO. The worse thing I have found was a meth lab. Here's my blog post about it. http://wp.me/p1E1tz-3r
