Snooping near Snoopy — Take a Deep Breath (GC4M0KY) — Geocache of the Week

Geocache Name: Take a Deep Breath (GC4M0KY) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 3/1.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: A great gadget cache is tough to build. First, you have to come up with a clever idea. Then you have to plan, buy supplies and actually put them together—not to mention troubleshoot if there are problems. This geocache goes a step further by not only being a clever puzzle, but also a piece of art. The geocache owner placed this geocache on his own property and says that the neighbors just think it’s a neat decoration, but geocachers come from far [...]

Geocache Name: Eisriesenwelt – Giant Ice World (GC18G08)   Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 2/3.5   Why this is the Geocache of the Week: EarthCaches not only bring us to amazing places, they also teach us about the processes that shape our planet.

This geocache was once an unused farm house in the Austrian countryside. The geocache owner decided to breathe new life into this once ‘useless’ structure and turn it into something that brings to joy to geocachers [...]

Geocache Name: Wheel of Fortune … Spins (GC282CQ)   Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 3.5/3.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Finding a geocache can be as simple as walking to a location and looking down. But after a while, it’s natural to want to change it up—even make it more difficult. With this geocache, you won’t have to solve a word puzzle to make the find, but you will have to spin the wheel. Around the edges of this spinning contraption, loosely based on the television game show “Wheel of Fortune”, are many containers—only one of which holds the logbook. [...]

A geocache made in Hollywood (but placed in Washington). — Ring of Fire (GCJYHZ) — Geocache of the Week

This week’s Geocache of the Week was born from the depths a fiery train crash. You might be thinking, “Jeez, that’s kind of a bummer. I hope no one was hurt in the wreck.” Until, of course, you learn that the train wreck was all a piece of Hollywood cinema. If you’re up for a hike and a challenging find, Ring of Fire (GCJYHZ) will show you a piece of movie history. In 1961, the film “Ring of Fire” was released. This film is a classic, campy story of  boy meets girl, all while a giant forest fire rages through [...]
