The Geocaching Blog


Going Too Far Behind the Scenes

I hope you’re blown away by the Lost & Found teaser video we posted in this blogging blast.  Literally, I hope hurricane force winds of amazement shifted you from your seat in jaw-dropping anticipation of what’s to come.  Ok. I’m just hearing this now. Alright.  This just in. Our lawyers say we’re not liable for any “shifting,” femoral breakage or injuries incurred while watching said video, or “hurricane force winds of amazement.”

Where were they when I almost snapped my femur on a shoot in Texas?

Now, traditional behind the scenes blogs may not take you to the moment before near-disaster or a pic of how  *not to win friends in Texas.  Here’s a little look (way too far) behind the scenes of our latest adventure shooting some of the stories you’ll see in the Lost and Found series.

These pics are just a sampling of our (mis)adventures.

Our videographer Reid interviewed Richard Garriott on the tower containing his YET-TO-BE-RELEASED cache.

A quick way to win over the locals in Texas? Drive a rental with New Jersey plates.

That's a picture of... my shirt. The significance? It's about a nano-second before I nearly fell off the tower at Richard Garriott's cache. But years of (below average) athletic conditioning kicked in and I righted myself with only a muffled shriek. I'd like to thank my High School tennis coach.

I wish they had geocaching class in my 5th grade. We had square dancing. Reid works the camera angles to capture kids learning topics like coordinates, distance calculations and fun. We later went outside geocaching.

There are 15 stories in the works right now with more added each week.  Hold onto your chair because we’re off to another round of Lost & Found shoots next week.   This time we’re headed to Colorado, bound for Denver and Fort Collins.  We’ll be in California after that.  Any ideas for great geocaching stories in either of those states? Let us know!

    Hah, our school saved square dancing for the 8th grade. I hope you are getting some geocaching in on your travels…

    Leg is fine. Ego and my sense of balance? A little shook. :)
