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: Köln-Seattle Exchange Multicaches (GC1GWEV and GC1H38J) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: Seattle: 2/3 Köln: 3/2 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: It’s often said that the best thing you find while geocaching isn’t the geocache, but the people you meet along the way. You can meet other geocachers at events, on the trail, or while coordinating your finds for this pair of geocaches. Completing the Köln-Seattle Exchange MultiCaches takes geocaching teamwork to the next level. To make the find, you’ll have to pair up with a geocacher across the world. Here’s how it works: you go to the first stage [...]
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. Shortly thereafter, seeds of these trees were sent to Germany and planted. Now, several Giant Redwoods stand in the middle of Germany, [...]
(Not actual footage of the geocache.) Geocache Name: Batman’s Batcave (GC8413) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 2.5/3 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: There are many reasons to hide a geocache: to bring geocachers to a beautiful location, show off an amazing geocache container, challenge geocachers to an extraordinary puzzle—or in this case, encourage geocachers to visit the lair of one of our favorite crime-fighting super heroes, Batman. Even if you didn’t grow up while the original Batman series was on air, you probably know of the amazing story lines, impeccable acting, and of course, the incredible dialog (Holy FTF Batman!). [...]
Geocache Name: Betonschiff Redentin (GC15D8C) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 3.5/5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Besides the fact that this geocache is located on an abandoned ship that’s amazing, slightly creepy and made of concrete? This geocache will test your bravery and boating skills, as well as teach you a lesson about history. During World War II, when steel was at a premium, engineers and ship builders moved to the next logical material: concrete. More than 50 ships were made in this fashion and served as transports and freighters. This particular ship ran aground at some point and has [...]
