Well, I *planned* to go geocaching at OpenStack Summit, but it really didn’t work out. Almost every moment that I wasn’t working the expo hall, I was in my hotel room, in bed. Yes, I spent most of OpenStack Summit week sick, and didn’t get out of the hotel much.
However, I did get out to go Geocaching one morning on the way over to the convention center, and I found Canada Place Cache, my first cache in many moons, and my first cache in Canada.
I also looked for Barrel of Trees, which I didn’t find because the place was overrun with muggles and I never got a chance to go back.
What was really cool, though, was how many OpenStack enthusiasts approached me either at the event, or online, saying that they were also planning to go geocaching, and thanking me for making them think of it. I always like to find out the *other* hobbies of the people I know in the geek world. That is, their hobbies outside of the particular technical discipline we share. It makes people more human, and way more interesting.
So, stay tuned, and come geocaching with me at Red Hat Summit, and at OpenStack Summit in Tokyo.
