"When you go to hide a cache, think of the reason you are bringing people to that spot.
If the only reason is for the cache, then find a better spot."

New State

We added Oregon to our state totals two weeks ago. We were able to find a cache, find a benchmark, visit a waymark, and post a new waymark. It was a fun trip. We did the original stash, but really enjoyed our time along Salmon Creek in view of Mount Hood. Portland was a fun town to Waymark. Our lone benchmark was cheap. It was the dome of the Pioneer Courthouse and a lousy photo as well. I was too tired to plan for benchmark hunting or we would have visited some nice marks.

This brings us to 25 states with caches found; 13 states with benchmarks; posted waymarks in 24 states; and visited waymarks in 26 states. Its time to add a few license plates to our profile page.

Along Salmon Creek with good caches and a super view of Mount Hood

Pioneer Courthouse Dome... it really was a cheap benchmark find. The building is beautiful, but not very accessible to visitors. :-(

Portland art sculpture PoD visited as a Smithsonian Art Inventory category item

The bike tenders at Powell's Books in downtown Portland. The book spine bike tenders were creative and used. Any bookstore with over 1 1/2 million titles in stock is a mecca to book junkies like us.
