Opening Day in Aurora

I had hi hopes for this day with all the rain that we got the few days prior to the hunt.  As we made our way down the ramp it was on.  I said to myself i was going to make it all the way out to the farthest corner where not to many people make it to.  I got about 3/4 of the way out and couldnt help myself anymore i had to stop and look.  It wasnt until about 10:00 that i found my first meg.  I was off to a good start.  Me 1 Wife 0   LOL.  Then it took about 2 more hours and i hooked back up with my wife to see how she was doing.  I guess it just wasnt her day.  So we kept on with the hunt and started making our slow journey back to the ramp.  It took us about 2 1/2 hours to make it back.  And thats when i started to find all my other ones.  I still havent gotten the BIG one yet but it will come in time.

Congratulations on the fantastic hunt! I never saw you again after the bus but I'm glad I didn't slow you down in the pit. There must be some GOOD Pungo out where you were. Content Quality : 10 of 10
