OK. I've heard about it, but I've never been to it.

It's only a 5 hour drive and I might be able to go if the sun and the stars align.

If I can go I'd be on my own so I'd like to hear about what the deal is, what goes on, how does it work.

Whether you can go or not...it is best to signup for it...as there is additional paperwork you need to complete...and it costs nothing to complete that paperwork right now.

Some people compete. Some people power cache. Some people just sit around and socialize.

I'll be in the power cache and socialize camps. Besides, 8 events in one weekend? Tough to top. 8? ok, maybe it's only 6.

If you're into power caching and socializing and up for splitting some fuel, I have a Tahoe with only two of us. I am already acting as the driver. Also have all (but one) of the puzzles solved.

Bart, I may do this. I tried checking the web site but the censor software at work has blocked me. I'm checking into time getting off from work. I'll email you or anyone else car pooling when I know more. Sounds like fun!

For anyone just now making plans and finding everything full . . . the husband and I each made separate reservations at the Super 8 in Centerville for Friday and Saturday nights. I don't want to just cancel (his) reservation in case someone else can use it.

Outside of the question on cars and two questions to the puzzle owners, all puzzles solved with my own effort.

What's this I am hearing on FB that some of the puzzles were moved? Is that true or just BS?

I got the message from Boreal Walker that some may have been moved...he is going to check his solutions...I may have jumped the gun about about the "alarm"...was tired and received the new late last night...I will "update" the page again when I hear from Boreal Walker...

I've been in contact with most of the puzzle hiders and you would think that they'd warn me, and everyone else, knowing that people are prepping for MOGA road cruising.

That is what I was concerned about...I know there is a group of us locally that have been in puzzle mode and to find out some could be changing...rather frustrating...
