The brat and I have been getting used to the process and struck out upon these journeys on our own this was our second solo trip to the World of Wherigo and it was a good time, have not been to the Fort in years. Stayed after the game and checked out all the exhibits.
Thanks for the adventure, schooltch & the brat but didn't get a completion code at the end of the game?

This was my first Whereigo experience... I really enjoyed it and plan on doing more... It's a great enhancement to geocaching...

I tried this Wherigo today but it would not sequence past the entry gate no matter what I tried. I guess this is a DNF or a DNP. I don't know what the problem may be, I finished a Wherigo in Folsom recently with no problems. TFTC OWL

It was an interesting history lesson. I had some difficulty at Sutters Office, but it was more operator error than game problem. The tempurature was about 100 so I would recommend going on a cooler day. This was my first experience with WhereIGo and it reminded my wife of Oregon Trail, the computer game, but more personal. Based on the fact this is the first game I've played I will rate it 3 stars so I can use this game as a base line in rating future games.
