CAPITAL Cache

CAPITAL CACHE
The idea is to get at least one picture of every state capital building in the continental U.S. with the Cache and rider posted at:
"This thread"
Suggestions;
1 – Try to pass the Cache on within a week.
2 – Remember to post your pic and short story. Group pics are encouraged.
3 – Multiple pics of the same capital are fine.
4 - Make an entry in the notebook/thread.
• Name/handle
• Bike
• Miles ridden to get Cache pic
• etc
5 – Take a trinket, leave a trinket. Try to make the trinket “state specific.”
6 – PASS THE CACHE!

You don't need to get a capital pic to move the Cache....if you take it and get it closer to someone who can get the pic that is ok too! (Just be sure to put your name in the notebook)

Just 24 miles round trip for me to get this pic.

Utah is a "Pretty Great State"

You have to look close to see the Cache in my hand. Who wants it next?

I'll watch this one. Could be neat to see all the state capitals. Olympia isn't all that far from me.

Nawwwwww....the idea went over like a lead balloon. But, if you post a capital pic, maybe someone else will post another...and on and on..

Actually, as Mythbusters proved, a Lead Balloon actually does fly.

I like the idea of this cache, but never get up to Carson City.
If I ever do I will, but the Utah capitol is easier for me:mrgreen:
