The following is a chronological consolidation of posts and microposts from August 6 through August 25, 2022.

Waiting for my ride to Johnston.

Departed for Seattle a few minutes after 6 AM.

Lunch at Culver’s in Brookings, SD.

Got my first North Dakota geocache find a few miles back down the road.

Passing through the outskirts of metropolitan Fargo.

Headed west across North Dakota for GC 551, the state’s oldest active geocache.

Arrived for the night around 9:25 pm in Miles City, Montana, about 70 miles past our intended stop.

First cache of the day: Headed to GCHGZZ in a rest area in Montana.

GCKHRJ: Was not on our original list but a really quick stop and well worth the time out.

Just departed from the headwaters of the Missouri river state park in Montana and the state’s oldest pair of geocaches. Check my track logs on for more details.

Stopped for dinner in Coeur d’Alene at Rogers Ice Cream and Burgers.

Excellent company for the reviewers lunch after the APE geocache at Snoqualmie Pass, Washington.

Relaxing and catching up in the hotel (the Maxwell near the Space Needle) after a great day of geocaching, hiking (10 miles or more) and lite travel.

No time to blog! Attending the Geocaching 20th Celebration.

Southbound on I5 to the Original Stash SE of Portland.

Grabbing a quick lunch at McDonald’s.

The apex of an epic road-trip!

Winnemucca ETA is 11:35pm. Never have I seen so many stars.

Tom’s reaction when we popped over the hill to see the Bonneville salt flats was “holy shit”.

Posting an updated itinerary for eastbound day 3.

Planning a lunch stop in Grand Island with Heartland Cacher and then on home to Iowa so Reviewer Smith can get back to Illinois this evening.
