After a good day of geocaching, nothing tops off the satisfaction of earning a few smileys like something delicious to eat. But what to choose? One person can only eat so many energy bars. Trail mix is delicious, but never quite quells the hunger. Candy bars aren’t very healthy. If you’re stuck deciding what your post-caching meal will be, all it takes to solve your dilemma is one trip to this week’s Geocache of the Week. KochBuchCache (GC21148) translates to Cookbook Cache, so you can probably tell where this one is headed. Each geocacher that finds this difficulty 1.5, terrain [...]
Many of us know it: geocaching can be addicting. It can even make you go a little cache-crazy. Once you have your first “OMG! I found it!” moment, you’re hooked. For those of us in the geocaching community, we know the feeling. For other people who haven’t been introduced to the fun, it might seem like we’re a little nuts. This week’s Geocache of the Week celebrates all of the geocaching nuts throughout the world, because, like the geocache owner says, “After all, is there anyone nuttier than a geocacher?” Nuts (GC41D4C) might seem like another creative looks-like-part-of-the-tree container, but [...]
If you’ve found a few geocaches, you know that sometimes in order to find the geocache, you have to explore places you’ve never been before. Sometimes those places are in full-view of the public or in a popular park. And sometimes, like in the case of this week’s Geocache of the Week, the geocache will take you to an abandoned underground hideout. Just outside of Stockholm, Sweden lies Antuna Underground (GC2B3BY), a difficulty/terrain 4 Unknown Cache that only the brave should attempt. For safety reasons, it’s probably best to tackle this geocache with two or more people. In order to [...]
Part of what makes geocaching so great is the variety of ways to play. As you’ve probably seen in past Geocache of the Week posts, some geocaches are incredible and creative containers, some are epic puzzles, and some—like this week’s—are arduous journeys with big rewards. As you might gather from the title, Apollos pool with the million dollar view (GC13VNK) is all about the amazing vista at ground zero. However, to make it to the final location and earn your smiley, you’re going to have to negotiate 4.5 difficulty and terrain ratings. The geocache owner, glyn(the only one), said “The place [...]
Ahoy mateys, today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day, so all of ya landlubbers best be arrggghhh-ing, knockin’ back some grog, an’ searchin’ for me treasure—lest ye walk the plank and be stowed away in Davey Jones’ locker. For those of you who don’t speak Pirate, here’s that translated into normal English: Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. It’s a great day to search for geocaches, especially the Geocache of the Week. Endlessly searching for “treasure,” a vocabulary of strange words, wooden legs—there are numerous similarities between geocachers and pirates. Well, maybe not that last one, but [...]
