Tron2010 RE: What's the most "extreme" geocache you've ever found?  

Post Date:
CAshback, GeoAsh, GeoSuze and I headed out to grab this one today to keep my 366 day challenge alive. When the paved part changed to dirt, we thought it would be a breeze.. We could not have been so wrong. The first clue should have been there was a mound of dirt we had to navigate over. As we drove the mammoth suburban along the 2' wide muddy,snow coverd trail (I know it's not but it felt like it) I had a death grip on the steering wheel! Up and up and up we went. When the trail became ice, at the locked f...

A Geo Drive up to the North West states To hang and play with my geocache mates Friends BenandJayme plan a party of slumber And making some S’mores over flames of lumber But on the way up, I needed some old stash Before heading up to the Blockparty Bash I was joined by BenH as he’s known down here Who’s a serious geocacher, not a sight-seer As we log our old finds, we’ll take our solemn oath To the famous Jasmer challenge which awaits us both We knocked out the old ones right into the dark ...

Tunnel Vision South. My nemesis. The bane of my geocaching existence. 6 times. 6 times I've been here. I've gotten dirty. I've gotten mad. You've haunted my dreams, nay, my nightmares since the icy winds of February blew. Twice today I've visited you. My first visit was no different than any other. You refused to yield your geocache to me. Foul harpy! Harpy, I name you! I returned to my home, and gazed upon the profile of a friend I'd turned to geocaching. 18 finds. What's this!?!? His 15th f...

Here is the FTF Log for our Paddlers cache on a small island off Gabriola Is. B.C. Canada. Found it Apr/22/2012 When this cache came out, I remember looking at in on my iPhone and contemplating going to get it. That is, of course, until I discovered it was on an island. And then realized it was actually on an island off of an island. And that I don't have any kind of a boat. And that the ferry had stopped running. Etc etc... So today, when I was biking my way around Gabriola Island, I happened...

As we wandered back over the hill, I looked wistfully over my shoulder, still wondering why Pinocchio was soooo elusive for me. I vowed to return. I will find it! or not…

My log for GC2R206 Didn't find it 12/23/2011 Part I: I attempted this one a week ago without luck. First, I lost 2/3 of my party. They wandered off somewhere between Shady Shelter & here. I did pick up 2 impromptu hunters though. A disc golfer & his dog wandered along with me. He (the man, not the dog) worked there & was curious why people kept wandering around poking in the bushes. It seemed like a good opportunity to bring a new cacher into the fold, plus he was older than I. That way I could outrun h...

A POND EXPERIENCE. Monday 30/04/2012, cache name ‘Fiddle It Out’ GC3G5J6. I’d had problems already this day, so perhaps shouldn't have tried to be clever. The cache is by a large, deep pond. We’d had days of torrential rain before this first fine day. I parked in the street outside the area and approached wearing waterproof & windproof jacket, pants, blouse, socks, walking boots, carrying various items about my person – you need stuff ‘just in case’. On reflection, I doubt I will be carry as many in futur...

THE UPS AND DOWNS OF GEOCACHING A POND EXPERIENCE. Reference: Monday 30/04/2012, cache name ‘Fiddle It Out’ GC3G5J6. I’d had a few problems already this day, so perhaps I shouldn't have tried to be clever here. The cache is by a large, deep pond and we’d had days of torrential rain before this first fine day. I had parked up in the street outside the area and had approached the cache well kitted out for geocaching. I had my waterproof and windproof jacket on, pants and a blouse, cotton socks and my...

StoweAK [Premium Member] Premium Member [Caches Found] 1802 Found it Found it 08/01/2008 How low can you go? Well… after this morning, I’m not at all sure. I was feeling pretty low after my experience in getting all the way out to the spot and then not being able to locate the hide. Had to use my ‘phone a friend’ for help as I surely didn’t want to take that trek again and the tide was already turning. But hey! Life’s always an adventure and I certainly enjoyed(?) one this morning. Would advise ...

My husband and I had a big old bump in the road of our marriage. I am happy to say that we are still together. Finding a common interest has help build the bridge back together. Our common interest is geocaching. He is not as gaga as I am but he likes it and is surprisingly great at it. When my dear friend and her husband hit a rough patch I told her about what we did and how it has helped bring us back together. She tried it and they are bridging the gap one cache at a time. It has given me reason to get...

Geocaching changed my life about a year ago when I was diagnosed with an eating disorder. I had no outlet for stress and anxiety. Geocaching let me get out and do something. It gave me something else to focus on and when my boyfriend found out about it he was excited to try and we have both started enjoying it and have since planted our own cache and sent out a travel bug.

Dede1596 RE: What's your favorite cache and why? 

Post Date:
My favourite cache would be the multicache "itsy bitsy spider all grown up!" It took us forever to find, but it was worth it! It is one of the most creative caches I have ever found or heard of. So much thought and detail went into both stages and we had a blast figuring out how to retrieve the final container.

How it changed my life? Answer: it keeps me sane of mind and healthy. Its 10 Years ago that I was diagnosed with a incurable disease and my life changed. For years i stayed indoors never went out. Until a few years ago I discovered GeoCaching, it gave me a purpose to go out en enjoy life again.(within my restrictions) And everyday I move my boundaries.

xedion RE: What has geocaching taught you? 

Post Date:
The one thing Geocaching has learned me, is, (almost)never give up searching and with patience a solution to the unsolvable will present itself. But as always there are some exceptions to the rules, in case of human error or the destructive nature of mankind.

Hello Gc.com team After long investigations and thorough preparation time, it was limited on the 29th of November, 2009 so far. We could reactivate proudly this legendary point again. This point reminds of the first Cache laid in Austria "Austria's first" on the 30th of June, 2001 published and on the 2nd of February, 2004, unfortunately, it was put into archives. Meanwhile there are in Austria approx. 21000 active Caches. Not to let fall into oblivion this historical point, became here p...

Sin duda el primero. Fue muy especial porque además no era de los sencillos, y estaba en un buen lugar y bastante interesante de contenido.

Aaaarrgh! Ahoy there ye' land lovers! This here be "A Pirates Tale Adventure" fer' sure. It began as I'd set me course heading fer' this treasure in these boonies of Wrightsville, Ga. I was without me hardy crew fer' some searchin' on me own. I dropped anchor here and headed into the moors. I had only me latern to light me way and used a staff to find me path. I'd no more than just entered when the solid ground beneath me boots gave way. The ground was bewitched! Water as black as the night, was trying to...

I thought this would be a simple PnG. I'll let you decide: I got alerted to this at a SWAG event. I noticed all of the FTF hounds didn't immediately leave, so I took off. :). I figured this was on the way home so I would give it a shot. I left the main road and was greeted by what I'm sure is an old horse and buggy trail due to it's sad state of disrepair. As I made it to the end of this road, I saw that another car was here! Darnit! It appeared to be Cougarzlair car. I got out and headed towards the cac...

I bought a Travel tag and attached a small guardian angel to it. I gave it to one of my Geocaching friends (Rocka Rolla) to be moved. Rocka Rolla then gave it to Catlady2 (Rocka or Rolla's mum) who took it to New Zealand, more specifically, Christchurch. With the earthquake, there was a lot of damage and people missing, injured, or dead. But Catlady2 remained safe, with only minor damage to the home that she was staying in. Rocka Rolla had just heard from Catlady2 a couple of days previously. Even with no w...

Geocaching before geocaching.com. Back in the mid 1990's before the Selective Availability was turned off on May 1, 2000. I was playing with the concept of using a Garmin 45 GPS to find a treasure. Our church group was camping at Beverly Beach State Park on the Oregon Coast. I would take a "treasure" out into the bush somewhere near the campground and then mark a waypoint on the GPS. I would then give the GPS to another camper in the group and challenge them to find the treasure, usually a quarter. I...
