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 [...]
I admit it, I really dislike clowns. For instance, if there’s one on the street handing balloons to children, I’ll cross to the other side of the street so I don’t have to get within a few feet of him/her. While I know I’m not alone, I think I’d definitely get over my dislike of clowns for a chance to find this week’s Geocache of the Week. Pennywise the Clown (GC3XB2Z), hidden in western Germany, ranks pretty high when it comes to geocache innovation, fun, and skill. When asked about the time and commitment that went into creating this geocache, [...]
As the legend goes, Arthur pulled the sword Excalibur from the stone to become King of the realm. Sometimes when I finally pull the logbook from a micro-cache, I feel like a king too. For those who want a little more of an experience fit for a true king, finding this week’s Geocache of the Week will put you on the right track. While you could probably rate the original Excalibur at difficulty and terrain 5, the geocache Excalibur (GC2VQ88) in the Netherlands clocks in at a mere 1.5 for each. The story begins in the geocache description, where new evidence [...]
