1 31 August 2014 sfcchaz Found it

DudleyGrunt and I came down to North Carolina to seek some OCNA caches. They are many, many OCNA caches in the Charlotte area and we wanted to seek them during the current contest going on the OCNA site.

Today I found 45 OCNA cahes, 5 Groundspeak caches, 1 GPSgames.org cache , 1 Opencaching.com cache and several possible Terracaching.com locationless caches.

This was a quick find. TFTC

Was down from Maryland with sfcchaz for a (mostly) alt-caching run thru Charlotte.  This was day two, after a surprisingly well attended 0630 (AKA o'dark thirty) event at Krispy Kreme (maybe that explains it).
We had a great time and definitely plan to make a return trip some time.
Thanks and Happy Trails!

Tags were very faded, but was just readable.  Not sure how artistic my pic, but who's to judge?

Thanks and Happy Trails!

My first BIT cache. I think the people working across the street thought I belonged there.
