The month of May is the most popular time of year for climbing the tallest mountain on Earth, Mt. Everest. While there is an Earthcache at the very top, most of us won’t have the time or money (guide services can cost thousands) to make the summit. In fact, many of us (me included), will have to just visit this amazing place through photographs and videos. However, for those who do make it to Tibet, a stop to find this week’s Geocache of the Week, Roof of the World (GC9A9E), is a must. While this geocache is rated 4 for [...]
Geocachers wear many hats—explorer, adventurer, stealth agent, pirate, and climber, just to name just a few. Sometimes, like in the case of this week’s Geocache of the Week, the hat geocachers wear is actually the geocache itself. To earn your smiley for Head Case (GC2TD8M), located near Denver, Colorado, USA, you’ll have to make sure your head is in the game. The hunt for this difficulty 2, terrain 1.5 geocache starts with a clever story told by the geocache creator Ecylram. The Head Case began as a micro container. However, due to mysterious circumstances and nearby military testing, the original container [...]
Earlier this month we received an email from a geocacher named Karen. In her email, she described how geocaching has completely turned her and her husband’s lives around with more exercise, lower blood pressure and a slimmer waist line. Then, her husband, Mike, sent an email to elaborate on their story. We love reading stories like this and can’t help but share it with Karen and Mike’s permission and an ear-to-ear smile across our faces. After retiring, Karen and Mike found themselves with a few bad habits: eating more and being less active than in previous years. That is, until [...]
Out of the numerous things geocaching has taught me, one of the special skills that has carried over into my day-to-day life has been to look more closely at everything. For example, at first glance, the photo above may just be a pretty picture of another amazing rock formation. However, if you look a little closer, you’ll notice a door…and windows…and a roof. Then you’ll see that it’s a stone house that looks like it came straight out of the Flintstones. Once you see that, you can take an even closer look to find Lameirinha (GC16670), this week’s Geocache of the Week. [...]
Jedi mind tricks aside, this is the geocache you’re looking for. Luckily, you won’t have to travel to a galaxy far far away to find it. This week’s Geocache of the Week, Star Wars Cache (GC2FDRQ), takes us to the filming location for the Mos Eisley scenes in Star Wars IV: A New Hope. If you aren’t sure why this week’s Geocache of the Week is Star Wars themed, I’ll explain. This Saturday, May 4, is a special holiday for Star Wars fans. “May the Fourth” sounds similar to “May the Force” which is part of the famous line, “May [...]
