Hunting For Treasure

After finishing that Memory quilt, I decided to play hooky tonight and go on a cache run with my Sis!

Don't worry, though, I'm hoping to have a few more quilty things to show you this weekend!

Happy Friday!

Cache In, Trash Out (CITO) on Earth Day

Looking back, I realize I forgot to share some pictures from Earth Day 2013.  Me and my fellow geocachers from around the world participated in trash clean-up events, giving back to the community.
Over 640 CITO events were hosted in more than 12 countries. Over the long Cache In Trash Out (CITO) weekend on April 20, 21 and 22, more than 12,000 geocachers met friends, picked up garbage and cleaned up the environment.

The contribution can be measured one old candy wrapper or one discarded bike tire at a time. All geocachers combined to pack dumpsters full of waste that had been polluting the environment. If each geocacher picked up just ten pounds of garbage, we all helped clean up at least 50 tons of trash around the world. That’s a staggering 100,000 pounds (45359.2 kg). (Groundspeak)
Me and my buds returned to Belle Isle (that beautiful gem in the middle of the Detroit River) and cleaned the interior roads. 

And, as always, we ended with food!

I'm very proud of the big hearts of my fellow Michiganders!
