MOGA 2007

MOGA (Midwest Open Geocaching Adventure) 2007 was a weekend long geocaching event held at Mark Twain Lake, Monroe City, Missouri this year. There were 60 geocaches to find around Mark Twain Lake and if you take a look at the topographical map you'll see red and blue flags. Each flag represents a single geocache and where it is hidden. The difference in color was for everyone who participated in the competitions. Blue flags were for the 1-person competition and red flags were for 2-team and 4-team competitions. My wife and I competed in the 2-team competition and found 17 caches in the 3 hour time limit: a tie for 5th place. We were 3 away from tieing for 3rd place. The terrain was tough as we had to hike down and up ravines, go around inlets, climb rock face, etc. A total blast. We hiked many miles in three hours.

We camped Friday and Saturday nights, we ate at the MOGA Pavillion for our meals, attended the meet-and-greets, went to the evening activities, saw tons of geocoins, and met a lot of geocachers from all over the USA! One geocacher in particular was from KC who owns a business holding 16 KC CHIEFS season tickets! There was so much to do and the entire weekend was so much fun. We found a total of 35 geocaches during the event and hit our 500th find over all (over the past 3 years).
