Come and join me for coffee at my favourite coffee spot before we hit the highways, biways and trails to enjoy a day of Geocaching.

Time: 10:00am - 10:30am
Location: Starbucks, 1114 Henderson Hwy

Apparently, morning events are quite popular. They make great events to hook up at before heading out for a day of Geocaching. So come, grab a coffee, hang out on the patio or parking lot for 30 minutes and then head off for a day of caching with some new Geo-Friends.
