  1. hahahaha It's cool, I didn't take it as a prick comment. I will make sure to put it right in the middle of Irvine Lake =)

    So today was a day of excitement, then heartbreak.

    Finished getting my taxes done and having lunch in Yorba Linda so decided to check on the geocache site. Was a great hike as its a beautiful day. Please see pics below:

    Then I pulled these beauties out of the ground.

    I was absolutely stoked as Wake n Bake is one of my favorite beers of all time. I hurried home to put the beers in the fridge. I was getting out of my car when the plastic bag I had put the beers into, felt it was done with its duties as a tool to carry things and the bottom gave way.


    Which resulted in:



    Now my carport smells like WnB and I have been pouting ever since.

    If you are sitting inside today and you are not enjoying the outdoors, you need to get out! Maybe you could even go seek out this site if you are feeling surly. ;)

    Just got back from the geocache site. At first it was tricky, but based on the coordinates and wandering a bit you can find it. I used my iPhone to find the coordinates. kmatlack left a pretty good stash, and I left a barrel-aged beer with a nice tulip for the next person. I didn't have any other 12oz bottles, so I'll make it up on the next one.

    Very cool.
  5. Went up there yesterday. Beautiful hike. Took me a while to find it as I'm without GPS unit. But had a nice time searching. BTW watch out for Rattle Snakes.:eek:

    Any updates on this lately?

    Do I need to go restock this thing with some Cantillon to get people motivated again?
