For weeks, Hui-chen and I planned on going to the geocaching woodstock as previously blogged. We were going to ride up to Taipei with our friend Michael Turton and his wife, and camp out over night for the event. At the last minute the situation changed due to a family emergency and we weren’t able to camp out.
When Hui-chen and I left on Saturday morning our front left tire was almost flat. We took the car across the street to the shop where we have our car work done.
With the tired fixed we met up with the Turtons and went in their car up to Yangmingshan where the event and the geocaches were.
We drove up higher on the mountain to find the next cache on the list.
After these 2 caches we went to the “base” which was a private home owned by Mr. and Mrs. “X.”
Here we are in the parking lot of the restaurant. Mr. X and his wife took the entire group out to dinner at a local restaurant. I feel bad because I didn’t get a chance to thank Mr. and Mrs. X for their gracious hospitality.
Enjoying conversation about the day’s activities. Seems that just about everyone knew who Michael and I are from our previous geocaching adventures.
I’m just kidding around with the photos I took. I found the geocachers to be a very nice group of people. I would like to do more activities with the geocachers in the future.
Now you know that I’m going to show some of the food, right?
Suddenly, we had to leave for some reason. I didn’t realize that we were going until we got into the car and I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to anyone. So, please accept our apologizes. Hui-chen and I wanted to hang out with all you geocachers but it was impossible.
Originally we had planned on spending the night there, participating in the Sunday morning event and then attending the grill party at noon. Disappointed, about not having attended the morning treasure hunt, and not wanting to spend more than 4 hours in the car driving up to Taipei and back on Sunday morning for the afternoon party, Hui-chen and I decided to have our own private party on the roof of our home.
Here we are under an umbrella out of the hot Hsinchu sun. The wind was blowing and it felt nice and cool. There is a bottle of Thai rum hiding behind the Coke, and we polished off the whole thing ourselves.
You can see a lot of interesting things from our rooftop cabana:
I want to thank RJT for organizing the Geocaching Woodstock event, and Mr. and Mrs. “X” for their generosity in opening their home to the event. Mr. X treated everyone to dinner and I feel embarrassed because I didn’t get a chance to even say “thank you” afterward. Please accept our sincere apologizes and thanks.
