Geocache Name: Travel Bug Plaza Hotel & Suites (GC3JQQ1) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1.5/1.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: I’ve seen quite a few Travel Bug hotels, but none have compared to this one. This is the sort of hotel I wouldn’t mind staying in—if I were a Travel Bug. There are quite a few things that make this hotel unique. To begin with, there are plenty of rooms. From large suites to efficiency rooms, there’s plenty of room for your trackable and all of its friends. And of course, no self-respecting hotel would be complete without a nice [...]

Geocache Name: Wellingtonie (GCXGEX) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 2.5/1 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Geocaches tell the story of a specific location. Sometimes the story is something as simple as “I enjoyed a beautiful view here.” In the case of this geocache, the story is a bit more extraordinary. In the mid 1800s, Germany was experiencing a significant wood shortage. Around the same time, news of an enormous tree traveled across the ocean from California’s redwood forest.
