First Trip to Aurora

So I've been drooling for the past year over all the finds you guys post from Aurora.  Finally it was my turn to go.  I had an excellent time and even met a few folks from the site.  Although I didn't find nearly as much as some of you experts, I was happy with my haul.  I was also happy that I was able to make it back to and up the ramp without passing out due to heat/exhaustion.  Bring lots of water if you are scheduled to go in the next few weeks as it is still hot out there!  After battling roaches at the EconoLodge, I hit GMR the next day.
