The Dark kNIGHT GC5ZDBZ Is a D/T 4/5 cache. The terrain rating was for the knee-deep water, downed trees, swamp, poison ivy and nettle patches. The difficulty rating was for the mosquito population (no kidding! I wore a head net!) and the red herrings -- there were three sets of trail markers. You had to pick the right color to follow or start all over again. Several friends later reported they bushwhacked the length of the woods and forged a swamp only to see the dreaded "frowny face" and having to start all over again.
TaGeez was exhausted from the day's adventures so he stayed back at the campsite. I tackled this monster with Mr. and Mrs. Ratspazum and Mr. HookedOnYou. On the down side, we were one of the first groups to do it so there were no geo-trails to help us out. On the plus side, I was engulfed in mosquitoes in my entirety. I looked like PigPen on Charlie Brown. And when I'm attacked, I become really, really focused.

DAY 2 - Poker Run
Even though we had hours before the Poker Run, TaGeez and I are in the habit of awaking early. Being the coolest part of the day we took the opportunity to complete the 10 LAB caches that were released the night before and then do some early morning caching.
The Hulk cache was the best one on the grounds! The green container fits snugly into the bird feeder and only appears when you push the smiley face. I heard Mrs. Ratspazum jumped because they experienced it at night and the flashing lights were more visible. We enjoyed bringing the family back here later to experience it.

|10 new LAB caches were released Thursday night|
TaGeez and I were #17 & #18 of 903 completions

We had a hoot on the Run with Ratspazum and the family. The stops included the Brown Bag (we revisited this specialty food shoppe the next day), a winery, an Antique store, a general store with ice cream (built before the Civil War), and the Historical Museum. Conveniently, one of our stops was right near Mom's Diner again so we had to stop. Yum!

We may've scared away Ratspazum for next year!
