NOPE. – Arachnophobia (GC2XHEQ) – Geocache of the Week

Geocache Name: Arachnophobia (GC2XHEQ)   Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 2/1 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Some geocaches make us face our fears.

The furry spider looks pretty friendly, so I’d probably conquer my fear and give it a shot.   What geocachers are [...]

In the case of this geocache, the hard work comes once you get to the geocache’s location. Known as a field-puzzle (a puzzle solved—guess where—in the field), these geocaches require a certain level of patience, skill and maybe even a few TOTTs (tools of the trade). Geocachers at this puzzle have to use sticks to [...]
