On our way home

We are on our way home. We've got alot of good audio to share when we get back. This pic was taken with our camera phone and sent directly to our blog from our plane home (on the runway in Atlanta, prepping to take off).

S&S Meet and Greet

We really enjoyed this event planned by JMTBuzz with help from joebids. It was awesome to meet another great set of geocachers and friends. Here we are posing outside the pizza place, before the recording began.

Exploring Stone Mountain

We spent all of Thursday at Stone Mountain Park. We rode the skyride to the top of the mountain of granite - amazing views - and found a few virtual caches up there. We also took a boat ride on the lake and a train ride around the base of the mountain. Check out more photos at our flickr set.

Stone Mountain Park

This picture was taken and sent from the top of Stone Mountain. More photos to come. We had to get a photo of Sonny with both his cameras - so we used the cell phone camera! =)

Convention Center - NECC location

Took this photo of Sonny outside the World Congress Center at the end of the conference day. He's been attending lots of sessions and also walking the vendor floor (see later photo) to gather information and strategies to take back to his school district (and of course, collecting swag).

Here we are at the NECC convention on Tuesday - I guess it is Hawaiian shirt day! We just finished a few hours in the vendor hall. Sonny got some great info and we both picked up some cool swag. We might have to do a NECC Swag II cache when we get home.

Olympic Rings Fountain at Night

Originally uploaded by SonnyandSandy
After the reception, we walked back to the hotel through Centennial Park. There were still kids playing in the fountain, even at 10:30 pm! The lighted fountain made for some beautiful night-time shots! See more photos at our flickr set.

More PodCacher Listener/Friends

Another treat at the reception was getting to meet and chat with some of our listeners. Here we are with jimmylogan and B@shful from Tennessee who had contacted us prior to NECC. We also bumped into another listener who recognized us as we were walking by.

On Sunday evening, the conference hosted a reception for all attendees and their families at the Georgia Aquarium. It was a madhouse, with thousands of people there! But later in the evening, after many of the people left, we were able to enjoy some of the amazing exhibits. See more photos at our flickr set.

CNN Headquarters

Originally uploaded by SonnyandSandy
After a nice toasty walk across Centennial Park (it was tempting to join the kids frolicking in the dancing water fountain), we headed over to CNN World Headquarters for a tour. It was very interesting to get a glimpse behind the scenes and see the actual studio where the CNN program was being broadcast live.

Hanging out at the World of Coca-Cola

This morning we headed out in a sunny, hot Atlanta day and started walking around the downtown area. We quickly found the new World of Coca-Cola and got our tickets for a tour. This brand new facility has only been open for a month. Here we are relaxing in a room full of Coke memorabilia and art. We had a great time, and I (Sandy) didn't tell anyone that I prefer Diet Pepsi! =)
