The cache is located at the top of the Wright State University sign. Seems simple enough, right? Just climb up, grab the cache, and be done with it. But here’s the catch: climbing the structure is not allowed. Plus, judging from the gallery, you may want to bring your friends — lots and lots of friends — for this Geocache of the Week.
The smell of popcorn in the air, gnomes dancing everywhere… it can only mean one thing: It’s time for the 2018 Geocaching International Film Festival!

Caching for 14 years, Annie Love (username Love) has enjoyed caching adventures and meeting community members all over the world. She began working at Geocaching HQ in 2007, working at the front desk before there even was a front desk. Nowadays, Annie manages the API and Trackables programs and is known for caching in flip flops whenever the conditions allow!
Travel is one of Annie’s biggest passions which pairs perfectly with geocaching! She’s traveled to over 30 countries and has found some amazing geocaches. Here are her ten most memorable geocaches from around the world.
It’s a dark and stormy night. Thunder crashes, lightning strikes! Through the crags of an old eastern European village, the flash of light illuminates a medieval chapel. As the mist clears, it becomes apparent that the chapel is entirely decorated in bones…human bones.
If that sounds like the beginning of a horror film it’s not—it’s just the Geocache of the Week.
One of the oldest and most popular geocaching challenges is the Jasmer Challenge. To complete the challenge, you must fill your Jasmer grid by finding caches placed in every month since geocaching began in May 2000. As of the time of this blog publication, there have been 222 months since the beginning of geocaching, which means you must find 222 caches to qualify.
The first Jasmer Challenge appeared in California in 2008 (GC1GBC1). It has since been duplicated all over the world. If you’re unclear on how the Jasmer Challenge works or want some tips on how to qualify, you found the right place.
