Night Light and In the Night Garden - Fall 2013
« on: September 26, 2013, 23:00:33 »
A few people have indicated that they haven't found one or both of these caches put out by CocaColaCacher.

Since it's getting darker earlier now, I'm looking to organize a group outing to do these caches in mid-October, perhaps a pre-GAG warmup.

Night Light is a traditional cache that was set up to be found at night.
In the Night Garden is a multi that has to be done at night.

I was thinking either Saturday October 19th or the 26th.  October 5th is also a possibility.

Anyone interested post in the thread and indicate your preferred date.

I'm in if I'm available. I've already found Night Light (during the day, even) but not the multi. No preference on date at this point as I'm equally likely to be busy or not on any of them.

I will come along if available, I would like to do a night time maintenance run.  I quite enjoy walking along to this cache, I've done it a few times.  ;)

Great idea Blackrose67! Count us in!

Like GreyingJay, we have already found Night Light, but have been wanting to do In the Night Garden for quite a while now.
Maybe it would make sense to start with In the Night Garden?
We haven't found nearby "Sleepy Hollow - A Night Cache" either, so might be interested in doing that one as #2 instead. Or save it for another time.

So far we are available on all three dates.
I would suggest we attempt to find them earlier rather than later, that way if the weather is not cooperating we can use the other days as alternates and/or optional dates for "Sleepy Hollow - A Night Cache".

Keep us posted!

October 5th is no longer an option for me.

My wife has to work that day and I have to pick her up after 6:30.

If it ends up that I'm the only one that hasn't found Night Light, I can do that one some other time.

I'd love to go, but I have hockey and soccer, and I'll be all over the place in the US, and Toronto for a bit.

Post when you guys are planning on going (When there's a date) here, and I'll see.

Right now it looks like the 19th is my best option, as I will be heading up to camp for a work weekend on the weekend of the 25-27th.

I agree.

We'll set the 19th as the date to look for In the Night Garden, and depending on how long it takes, Sleepy Hollow - A Night Cache as well.

I'll do Night Light some other time on my own.

Count us in for the 19th.
What time/parking coordinates?

Parking coords would be the posted for In The Night Garden, just west of the old railway overpass on Roberston Road.
There's a small area where a couple of vehicles can park.

By the 19th, the sun will be setting around 6:10. I think it should be sufficiently dark by 7:30.
I've only done one other night cache that used fire tacks/reflectors (oddly enough on October 19th, 2012 during GAG18) , and I did that one well after 9:00.

After Thanksgiving dinner tonight, I noticed that it was pitch black by 7:00 PM.

My wife is not working on the 19th, so I won't have to go and get her.

Anyone object to meeting at 7:00 PM instead of 7:30 PM?

No pb with changing to 7PM.
But I am a bit concerned about parking. If the meeting point can only accommodate a couple vehicles, we won't all fit there.

I went by there a couple of times this weekend and there is enough parking for at least 6 vehicles.

Yeah, lots of room for parking in the "lot", plus there's still the wide road shoulder. I wouldn't be concerned.

I will see you guys there at 7pm.

Recent finder says things are still good with the final but I'll still come along to check things out.  I'll be there.
