Night Caching on B Street

Decided to try a rare night cache today. I wanted to go on a hike, but couldn't really decide on what and where. I saw this night cache and decided to call Uncle Duck. The cache was on Beacon Hill just off B Street. I hadn't found his cache at the bottom of the hill so we stopped for it


Continued up the trail spotting reflectors on the way until we finally saw the double ones. This cache was well planned and while its all up hill we took our time and it was no problem. It was a fun find.

Hide and Seek (Night Cache)

I took a couple of pictures from the cache location of the City at night. Nice view any time of day up here.

Grants Pass Food Carts

I've blogged before about food carts and other restaurants in downtown Grants Pass, but I haven't updated it for a while. So Grants Pass has grown from one Vietnamese food cart to having that plus a sandwich cart and 2 hot dog vendors. I've also seen a cart called "Taste of Alaska" but never at lunch time.

The sandwich cart called "Wowzers" is pretty good. I haven't seen him around for lunchtime lately. Next time I see him I'll take a picture.

The first hot dog cart I saw is owned by Mike Machado. Very friendly and you can get a hotdog chips and soda for $4. I'll have to go snap a pic for the blog soon.

Today I stopped at the cart called Big Fat Wieners. It lives up to the name serving giant hotdogs for $3. I got the Memphis Pulled Pork dog which is a giant hotdog topped with pulled pork home made BBQ sauce and coleslaw. Honestly while it was pretty good... it was too messy for me to eat while walking back to work. Next time I'll just get a regular hotdog. The provocative name might turn off a few... it shouldn't. Try it out.

The Grants Pass city council met to discuss new codes for mobile food vendors. It looks like they will be kept off 6th and 7th streets, but that hasn't really been decided. I would hope that they have looked over other cities policies on food carts.
