|Big announcement on the Geocaching.com blog!|
I shouted to all and asunder SHOW DETROIT SOME LOVE! SEND ONE THIS WAY! Little did I know that one of the trackables, a Revenant shield, had quietly crossed the border and was nestled safely in the BIG Orange Travel Bug Convention Center in Niles, Michigan!
A trip to Niles was in store....
Once we heard one of these elusive trackables was in Michigan, plans for a road trip filled Facebook! This is like a current day "Ape Cache" - a piece of Hollywood stepping into the geo-world - and we wanted to see it before they disappeared forever.
Last Saturday, MaxB on the River, owner of BIG Orange, dropped the trackable at a local event in Volinia, Michigan (a mere 149 miles from home). Road trip! Into the car and heading west on the adventure were myself, TaGeez, RayQix, PaRaDiZ, and Kachehuntr!
We're going to see it!
Or maybe not.
Imagine our shock and wonderment when we pulled into the park and NOBODY WAS THERE! A 3 hour road trip and we missed it? Did I really have the time wrong? CRAP!!! And no internet to contact MaxB or the event CO because we were in the middle of nowhere!
So, what do you do? Well, geocache! Virtuals, Large caches, and oldies! Views of beautiful dams, railroad bridges, lakes and small town centers.

Much to our joy MaxB messaged us to say they were home and had the trackable in hand. Off to Niles we head! What a trifecta! A Large travel bug hotel, a piece of movie magic (trackable) and meeting MaxB on the River! What a lovely couple! They told us the tale of bringing the prop to Michigan and their vow of silence until Geocaching.com's announcement was made. Fun! Fun!
Check it out!
