Oregon 550 meets record crowd at GeoWoodstock

26 May 2009 @ 11:23 AM  / Outdoor Blog /


DSC00027 DSC02553 DSC02512 Geocachers from at least 46 states in the U.S. and various regions of Europe gathered in Bell Buckle, TN, over the weekend for GeoWoodstock 7. More than 5,000 cachers - from youngsters to age 76, and traveling from as far as 4,500 miles away - made this the largest GeoWoodstock ever and kept us busy in the Garmin booth, where we were showing off the Oregon 550 and Oregon 550t, our newest touchscreen handhelds with built-in camera.

As you can imagine, we spent most of our time at GeoWoodstock talking about the 550's built-in, waterproof 3.2MP camera that is perfect for capturing every cache at the moment of discovery, but we did find time to snap a few pics of our own. Especially when Alamogul stopped by the Garmin booth. Known to the rest of the world as Lee van der Bokke, Alamogul has logged more finds (32,670 and counting) so we were excited to snap his picture (above) with the Oregon 550t. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth and attended GeoWoodstock 7, and we'll see you on the trails and on the road!
