Announcing the December Featured Geocacher of the Month

We are wrapping up 2012 with yet another outstanding featured Geocacher of the Month. Congratulations to Wayne, a.k.a. Moneydork for being named December’s Featured Geocacher of the Month! Moneydork is recognized for establishing himself as one of Australasian’s most prolific geocachers. His efforts to support the community as a volunteer reviewer and good Samaritan have not gone unnoticed. He even managed to organize New Zealand’s very first Mega-Event from 3500 km (2175 miles) away. According to fellow geocachers, Moneydork’s hides and events are legendary Down Under and he never hesitates to give his all to the sport. A geocacher who voted for Moneydork writes, “My […]

…wo hab Ich den Cache denn nochmal hingelegt??? (GC1DZ17) – GEOCACHE OF THE WEEK – December 27, 2012

Since 2008, this Geocache of the Week geocache owner has been asking himself “…wo hab Ich den Cache denn nochmal hingelegt???” (GC1DZ17). That is, “where did I place that cache again???” To answer his question, we head to Hamburg, Germany, where the difficulty 2, terrain 2 geocache has been named an absolute favorite among geocachers. The geocache “wonders” within a small radius of the initial coordinates. Finding it requires a sixth sense, known as the geocaching instinct. You see, Mr.T has asked geocachers to hide the geocache in the same manner they found it, but place it in a slightly different location. In order to understand […]

Occi – GCWGPH – GEOCACHE OF THE WEEK – December 20, 2012

There are exactly three trails leading to the Geocache of the Week. One is from a camp site, the second is from a nearby chapel and the third is from a hotel.

Occi, France is known for its beautiful ruins that overlook the deep, blue sea. In June 2006, it also became a fascinating an unique location for a highly “Favorited” geocache. […]

Slieve League (Bunglas) – GC18RT – GEOCACHE OF THE WEEK – December 13, 2012

This week, we’re visiting some of Europe’s highest sea cliffs to find the Geocache of the Week. We may even climb as far as 1972 feet (601 meters) in our search for the difficulty 3, terrain 3 traditional geocache in County Donegal, Ireland. Thanks to John, a.k.a. Wild Rover, Slieve League (Bunglas) (GC18RT) has brought nearly 300 adventure seekers to this secluded and stunning location since it was published in April, 2004. The extensive logs and 53 Favorite Points speak volumes for this remote geocache. John’s goal was simply to place the cache, conscious that geocachers would aim to find a location […]
