Even More Las Vegas

I got back from my latest Las Vegas adventure yesterday. Probably my most balanced trip to Vegas so far as I came home with most of my money and some of my "losses" were actually spent on food and asprin.

Once again I spent some time on the Nevada forum and Moose Mob arranged a caching trip. I have to be honest and say most of the day I didn't know where the hell we were. I know we went through Searchlight, Laughlin, we could see Bullhead City accross the border with Arizona and even found a cache just accross the other border in California. It was a fun day with over 40 caches found.

I have yet to get my camera out and see what the pics I took look like, but I'll post a couple of them once I do.

Permission granted

Soon after asking permission for my Earthcache from the Lakeview BLM it was granted. So that was easy and mostly painless. They were very quick, but it has taken me a few days to get around to actually typing up a cache page to submit. Earthcaches are submitted and approved differently... you submit it right through the earthcache website and if they approve they submit the cache and later you adopt it.

I learned something while writing up the cache page. I'm not a geologist. Sunstones while interesting to find are really pretty boring to explain. I almost fell to sleep just reading about them... and most websites only have a brief description if they bother to put one at all.

Well anyway I submitted it so now its up to the GSA to decide if it meets the standards to be an Earthcache.
