Climbing for a Smiley

Looking down, there is nothing for 30 feet and then the leafy floor of the Potsdam forest in Germany. My head is red from exhaustion. When I look at my hands, they are shaking. I try to write my geocaching username in the small logbook, but the letters are scrawly. “At least I did not forget the pen down there,” I think to myself. “Now you have to come down” Ralf (Geocaching username: DeepdiverBerlin) calls from below. Ralf’s specialty are T5 caches. Geocaches with a terrain 5 rating require specialized equipment. That can be a boat, a vehicle with 4 […]

A S*W*A*G Filled Mega-Event

Editor’s Note: Staff from Geocaching HQ in Seattle are visiting more than 30 Mega-Events around the globe this year, to shake hands, share stories and hear what you think is next for geocaching.  In February, the Southwest Arizona Geocachers hosted their signature event, S*W*A*G’s Yuma Mega #11, in sunny Yuma. Above is what it looked like at home in Seattle, where Geocaching HQ is located, that same weekend. After arriving in Yuma and thanking the Southwest Sunshine Gods (they must exist), I found my first-ever Arizona geocaches and got started on the Mega Event’s Lab Caches. Jeff Nicholson, you+me_makes3, with […]

I <3 Geocaching Lab Caches from the Geocaching Community

At the beginning of this month, the I <3 Geocaching Lab Cache experiment launched. During the month of February, Geocaching Premium members have the chance to create a temporary, personalized Lab Cache for one special person. This new test is different than normal geocaching and is open to all sorts of creative interpretations. In fact, in the short two weeks that the test has been live, we’ve already seen a number of amazing Lab Caches from the geocaching community. If you’re a Geocaching Premium member and you haven’t created your Lab Cache yet, do it here, then post your ideas in […]

A Busy Day for Geocaching HQ’er MissJenn in Bowling Green, Kentucky

I had the pleasure of attending the GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. This exhibit has been the torque of this town (get it?). See it while you can. It will be there until May 4, 2014. Many of us took advantage of this very rare opportunity to have a so-called “Busy Day of Geocaching” – a day in which you can find a full dozen different cache types. The eager community fastened their seatbelts to geocache across Bowling Green. Up for grabs were a CITO event, a regular event, some experimental Lab […]
