August Caches

This month geocaching.com is running a 7 Souvenirs of August promotion. You get a souvenir for finding a traditional, mystery, multi, CITO/Earthcache, event, and virtual or other odd type. Plus one for getting all six of these types. So far I have one for this cache.

Oakridge GeoTour #31 - Shadow Bay

Found this one on my usual camping trip to Waldo Lake. I went to this cache in the evening when things calmed down at the lake, and while I was signing the log another set of geocachers showed up. Always fun to run into other geocachers.

Anyway I think I might try and get the other cache types I need this month to get the other 6 souvenirs. We'll see if I find time this weekend.

In the meantime here are some pictures of food carts


This one is Eurodish. Obviously they serve traditional polish food, and its pretty good.


The Midwest Pizza Co is a pretty damn good pizza cart. Deep dish style, and hot dogs. Its probably my favorite cart in the Mississippi Marketplace now.


The Sausage Shack has all sorts of bacon wrapped items. I had a bacon wrapped corn dog which looked better then it tasted. This cart is hardly ever open it seems.

And last is Potato Potato. It was ok, but not really my thing. My pal Frank loved the place though, and he's sad that its moving to another pod outside of our "lunch zone"

A night of caching

Daveydude and Biggieet_al were in town today. I met them downtown. We tried an Egyptian food cart for dinner and then went and found a few geocaches and a munzee.


Here is Kelly waiting for his Gyro at the Gyro House. I enjoyed my food. Kelly found a piece of plastic in his... like from a produce bag. That was after they forgot his order so Dave and I were left waiting for him. It was a busy place since they were one of the only carts open at the time. I'd try it again.

After that we found

Grab a Cache, Grab Some Lunch, Part Deux
Grimm Season 2 5 The Good Shepherd
Top Score

The last one was a really old Virtual in a cool retro arcade/bar. Played a game of Frogger and called it a night.

6 Months... of food carts

Tonight marks 6 months since I moved to Portland. I haven't done much geocaching, but I have ate at a lot of food carts. Maybe I should just make this a food cart blog... here are a few of the most recent


Kargi Gogo is a Georgian food cart. That's Georgia as in a country between Russia and Turkey that was part of the former Soviet Union. I had the khinkali which are dumplings full of beef and pork. You can't really go wrong with that... and they were pretty good. I think I'd like to try the cheese bread as well.


This is Portland Masala which is an Indian food cart. SallyC actually introduced me to Indian food and I have been a fan ever since. This place sells packaged Indian food in super markets... then they decided to open a cart. I had the chicken curry and the lamb curry. It is a good amount of food for the money and it was pretty tasty as well.


I tried Island Grill Hawaiian Barbeque just today. This is a Hawaiian food cart. I had BBQ chicken with macaroni salad and rice. It was good, next time I'll probably try the teriyaki chicken as just the BBQ was kind of plain even for me... and I like stuff plain. I'm still looking for a Hawaiian place with Korean chicken as good at North Shore Hawaiian Plate in Klamath Falls.

A cache for 2014

I found my first cache of 2014

By The Content Of Their Character

Of course that was on Friday. Its nice to have a  little daylight after work. I tried to find this cache last year 3 or 4 times and it turns out it was missing.
