Kilted at Geocaching Event

I attended a Geocache event today. The theme was wear red for Valentine day and that way others in attendance would know whom was with the group. I normally attend in a kilt so today was no exception. Geocaching is an activity that is attracting other "kilties". I have run across others but I am the only regular participant that wears a kilt in this area. Today I ran into another local cacher that wears a kilt. He was not wearing one for today's event but I hope he attends future events in a kilt now that he knows there is someone else in the area. Some guys don't want to be the only one wearing a kilt. With this group kilted Geocachers is nothing new. There have been others in this area before me. I appear to be the only one still in the area that is actively caching in a kilt. Or at least attending the social events in a kilt. So guys dawn the kilt and get out in the world.

We held today's event at a local pizza establishment. The owner came around and took pictures. They are working on a Facebook page and have been taking photos of customers, especially groups, that frequent their business. The owner, a lady, took an interest in the kilt so my picture will end up on their Facebook page at some point. I was unable to find the page so I guess it is not online yet. All in good time.

Today was an excellent day for Geocaching as the weather was sunny and about 50 degrees. Heat wave from what we have experienced in the last month. I went to the Geocache event at the pizza place but did not go after any caches.

I think I met the "wear red" requirment:

You have guts to do that

I stopped at the grocery store this afternoon. As I was walking back to my car the young lady collecting carts said to me "you have guts to do that". "I like your kilt and glad to see your wearing it". I don't know if she has has been in the store other times I was shopping.

In the store a lady made a comment about it being a little cold but at the same time a young lady walked by in what I first thought was a mini Utilikilt but it was not. The skirt was mid thigh, no stocking or socks, wearing 6" high boots. Now I know she had to be cold but the lady dismissed that and addressed the "cold" comment to me. Go figure.
