Magic Convention, Space event and of course....Caching!!!

These last few months were quite busy as we were in the middle of getting ready to move from Vancouver Island over to the mainland, I also attended some geo-events and a magic convention.

Three of Clubs Magic convention:

What a great convention. This convention takes place in one of three city's each year, hosted by the respective magic club.(Seattle, Victoria, and Vancouver- Hence the name "The Three of Clubs")
Last year I was the VP of the Victoria magic circle and we hosted the Convention. Myself and 6 others were on the organizing committee and we were in charge of running the convention and making sure everyone attending has a terrific time.
This year it was in Vancouver and since I am moving over this way I volunteered to help run things.
I was one of the guys that helped keep the convention running smoothly( well almost smooth). I ran the sound and camera for the shows, speakers, lecturers, and special guests. Everyone had a great time and it was one of the best "Three of Clubs" conventions ever.




 


 







This is the Space event that myself and 80plus other cachers attended:

A travel bug was being taken up to space by a teacher as a classroom project.
Yup its true!!! A Geocaching Travel Bug is hitching a ride with astronaut Rick Mastracchio straight to the International Space Station. The mission was to launch from Kazakhstan at 4:08 GMT on November 7, which is November 6 at 8:08 p.m. here in the Lower Mainland. The TB is now up in space. Very Cool!!!

Still maintaining my cache a day commitment. I'm still going on day 349, just 16 more till the end of the year. I always take lots of photos while I am caching. Here are just a few.
 







 





 
 
I have been working in Langley area, and it seems there is a couple of different Tree climbing cache series. I have grabbed quite a few after work, some have been easy, others were a bit harder. Although I was able to climb one of them up about 30-40 feet, I came to one that was closer to the ground but the tree was such a shape that I could just not get started up it. But as it just so happens, I had something on the truck that was able to help me as you will see in the pic. Hey, I saw no rule saying these could not be used. LOL!!!
The Easy way to climb!!


 This one was fairly easy to climb but quite high up, I was not even sure I was in the right tree until I was up about 35 feet and spotted the cache container.
 
 
I want to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas, and an awesome New Year!!! 

 

 
See ya next YEAR!!!
Keep on caching!!
