Axial Geocache #6-2011
Our final Axial Geocache for 2011
Congratulations to Rhett Mora of Fernley, NV for getting out and finding the Axial Geocache #6…. The last one for 2011.

Rhett fuond the Axial Geocache #6 on December 28th, 2011 at 2:55PM PST.
Here is what Rhett had to say about his adventure.

“My name is Rhett Mora, and I just found the #6 Geocache. I want to start by saying thanks to Axial for all you guys do for the crawling community. I first saw the post for the Geocache #6 last Saturday Dec 24th. I saw that someone posted that they were there the day before and couldn’t find it. So I thought someone had already grabbed it. I was a little bummed as this one was close enough for me to go look for. Well, I kept checking back to see if the person that found it would post it up. Then on Wednesday Dec. 28th I saw a post by RECON Crawlers that said the Geocache was still there on Sunday Dec 25th. Well, I happened to have the day off, and said what the heck if all else fails at least I can get some crawling in. So I loaded up my Axial crawlers programed the coordinates into my GPS and started the 40 minute drive to Reno, NV. I was able to drive to within 300 ft of the coordinates. So I put my garmin in pedestrian mode and started walking. I got to the top of the hill and got the GPS to say I was 4 ft from it, but just couldn’t seem to find it. So I put the gps down and just started looking under all the rocks. Spent about 10 minutes looking on the wrong side of the hill, as soon as I climbed back over the hill, the first rock I looked under I saw something green. Odd thing is, because of the green I thought I had found a different Geocache and that I had found an Xbox 360 game. But then I started to notice that it said Axial all over it. Then I got real excited. I couldn’t believe that after all this time it was still there. Thanks again.”

Rhett scored on this find… Not only did he get a full set of AX30790 Machined Heavy Duty Aluminum Straight Link 101mm – Grey (2pcs) and a AX30834 Aluminum Servo Horn 23T (Hard Anodized), AX30835 Aluminum Servo Horn 24T (Hard Anodized), some cool Axial swag limited only to the Axial Geocache program. And from the courtesy of RC Driver for the holidays, 2 free RC Driver Magazines, an RC Driver T-Shirt and a one year subscription to RC Driver.

For letting us know that he found the Axial Geocache #6 we have sent him the hardware to mount the aluminum links on his Wraith, 2ea AX80057, 1ea AX80018, 1 bag of AXA0187 and another AX30835 for his Hitec Servos.

    Awesome. Something a little closer, still hoping for Ft. Collins, CO or Vedauwoo Wyoming. You’ve Crossed the Country for events. I also understand not wanting to stop in Wyoming in December.

    Wish you guys would do a Geocache in North Carolina in March for Spring Break. Will be staying at a log cabin that was built in the 1930′s and hiking through Grandfather Mountain and exploring everywhere else around there.

    Hey, My name is Scott and I got into RC crawling about a year ago because of a buddy of mine. I bought a used AX-10 from a local hobby shop and have had a ball with it. I recently bought a Wraith and I’m still learning about it. I also recently started geo-caching. My two sons and I really enjoy doing it together. I am planning on purchasing them their own crawlers when they are old enough. I really like your products and just wanted to say I think its great that your company places geo-caches that have to do with crawling. I hope to see a Tennessee cache someday. Thanks for all the fun your products make. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
