Mega Metro Conference in Colorado

We have had a great few days here at the beautiful Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs for our annual Mega Metro Conference for Pastors and Wives.  It is wonderful to get together with good friends and discuss ministry issues and helpful ideas to take back with us to our places of service.  The weather has been outstanding and the fellowship even better.  You know you have really good friends when they consent to go "geocaching" with you in the Colorado mountains in their heels dressed for a luncheon at the Glen Eyrie Castle!  We walked and walked...went across a stream (after taking off my shoes and socks and rolling up my pants legs) but when I got to the next stream it was much deeper than the rolled up pants were allowed to take on and we were still .1 of a mile from the cache so we turned around and went to the luncheon without locating the cache!!  What a bummer!!  However, through the ordeal I was able to hook two more newbies to geocaching...Jena Floyd and Leigh Lowery.  They are such great troopers and great friends.  BUT!!!  The next day, we were able to go out again and located two caches!  This time, Leigh, Lilliana Lewis and Bobbi Jackson went with me. They are pictured with our find, "The Wise Guy".  It was an owl in a tree with the cache underneath.  A great find and a great time on the hunt.  If you haven't tried it yet, you're missing a great fun time.!  We leave for California tomorrow morning.  More later......
