Mother of Father’s Day: Investigating The 3 Parts of Every Geocache

By Dani Navarre  Mother of Father’s Day Each geocache you find has three essential stories and you’re one of them. Remove any of the three parts and geocaching, well just isn’t geocaching anymore. The three parts of geocaching are the location, the hider, and the finder. Of course there’s many more parts to the geocaching experience, but these three are the essential ingredients to any geocaching adventure. It’s the location that brings us somewhere undiscovered or overlooked, the hider whose lightbulb idea brings the geocache to life, and it’s you (the finder) who makes geocaching an adventure. In order to […]

The Father of the Geocoin: Moun10Bike

  Geocoins—it’s hard to imagine Geocaching without them, Travel Bugs, or any other kind of trackable. But for an entire year and half after geocaching was born (in May of the year 2000), that was how geocaching was done. Caching primarily involved of using GPS technology to discover ammo cans hidden deep in the woods, then the seekers would write long entries into pre-placed log books. But geocaching’s path changed forever (and for the better) when Jon Stanley, aka Moun10Bike, created and placed the very first geocoin in a cache near Deception Pass in Washington State, USA. Not only is Jon a legend of geocaching, he’s also a Charter Member […]
