On Sunday we: Kevin, Adele, Mikayla, Angus and I went to our first CITO event. CITO stands for Cache In Trash Out, which meant that besides caching we were going to do a clean-up.
Cleaning up Lovely Logan (CITO) (event cache)
|The event site|
I arrived at 10am, registered and waited for the rest of the family to arrive. One after another people arrived, picked up bags and gloves and started picking up waste around the area. I was a bit worried that there wouldn't be anything left by the time we would start, but...... I shouldn't have. After the family's arrival and a cuppa together we only had to walk a bit further than the others to find two bags full of trash. After a long walk in the heat of the day we returned just in time for the raffle. We deposited the bags and sat down with a cool drink in waiting to receive a FTF, but that wasn't going to happen. :-(
A FTF, received in a raffle, is your chance to be a First To Find of a cache, of which you alone are given the co-ordinates well before others receive them, hence your best chance of a FTF.
Lovely Logan Crestmead Tour Whereigo (whereigo cache)
After the raffle we were going to enjoy a BBQ lunch, but the group doing the wherigo cache was leaving and asked if anybody wanted to join them. As I am still learning I didn't mind joining in and I must say, it was worth doing so.

Lovely Logan Traditional Lay Low (Traditional cache)
In the meantime Kevin and family went in search for a traditional cache, of which I hope to get pictures later (if they have taken any) and also a virtual cache.
Shoot the Hoop (virtual cache)
I returned to this one with Kevin later, because it was necessary to have my photograph taken. Have a good look at the picture. A thunderstorm is looming, but we avoided all the rain until we did our webcam cache, and even then it was a brief shower only. We were lucky.
|Don't believe for a moment I was trying for real..... ;-)|
When they returned we were going to try our hands at a multi cache.
