What better way to start the New Year than to dive into GSAK. SLAGA’s Basic class was a tremendous success with over 30 cachers of all levels in attendance. Everyone learned new “tricks” that will ensure 2016 is their best year.
Kid Dylan, forever the math whiz, calculated that the total caches found by all attendees was 103,881. GSAK can’t be in better hands. Listen to just a few of the many positive logs.
Curious GEOrge3: A BIG Thank You to Major134 and Brantole. The course documentation with "by the numbers" instruction that included screen shots with red ellipses and arrows was incredibly helpful to me. I went through it several times prior to the class. I wouldn't have even tried GSAK without a class like this. Thanks again.
Kid Dylan: I want to award a fave, nothing short of awesome. thanks loads to everyone, especially the Major & brantole!!! great job
Mean Gene: I use GSAK a lot but still learned things I did not know. Thanks Major134 and Brantole for hosting this class and the professional looking handouts.

Day 10 - LFrank 4:25 pm
get home, just before three, and notice the Day 10 Cachemas cache has yet to publish. I wanted to get the code, so I waited for it to publish. 3:06 pm the notification came up. I download it to my GPS, scan it real fast and notice it is a projection, so I grab Denmothers PDA and out the door I went. As I'm driving I look at the map and notice the first waypoint, to the multi, is at the entrance to the West County Mall. I must be effing insane to be going here after 3 in the afternoon. Why didn't they do this at 10am? So I arrive at the entrance, 3 million other cars, who also do not know where they are going, around me. I'm in the wrong lane...........U-Turn! I now find a parking spot, get out and head towards GZ. I'm looking for a peace symbol so it must be at the sign. I catch the walk sign and cross the traffic and talking to the mall police, who are directing traffic,to wishme luck. I get to the sign, no peace symbol and I have now passed up GZ. What the Eff is going on? I re-read the cache page. From the starting coordinates you must find the nearby
