Geocache Name: In the Distance (GC4JZTK) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1/1.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Multi-Caches are a great challenge for any geocacher looking for a little something more than a traditional. Some multis require you to gather information at the coordinates and plug it into a formula to get the coordinates for the next stage. This multi does away with secondary coordinates altogether. Once you arrive at the first stage, you’ll have to use your keen eyesight to see where the final container lies. What geocachers are saying: “What a great idea for a cache. Well worth […]

Geocache Name: The Chicken Channel (GC5FN87) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1/1 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: When asking “Why do you like geocaching?” one of the top responses is always along the lines of, “it shows me places I never would’ve known existed.” The Chicken Channel is a perfect example of that. This geocache leads geocachers to a local art installation created by homeowners that raise chickens. Originally, when the dial on the “TV” was turned, feed was released, which attracted the chickens to the screen. This gave local residents an opportunity to meet their neighbors. Now, neighbors […]
