This cache taps into the global spirit of geocaching and the team building nature of geocachers. The WWC – World Wide Cache sends players on an intercontinental puzzle-solving adventure. You start and end in Portugal. The first cache in this Multi-Cache is GC1DZFC. From there you journey to America, Africa, Australia and Asia before heading back to Portugal.
Worried about the cost of all the airline tickets? You don’t need to flex your credit card to complete this cache. Most (if not all) of those who take on this Multi-Cache never leave their home county. They build a network of teams with members near each leg of the cache. Each cache contains the coordinates to the next.
SPY_Team created the cache. Rui, from SPY Team, says his 13 year old son encouraged him to create the five physical caches around world. It took four months to bring all the teams together and place the caches. Rui says, “I think the most amazing thing about this cache was the team work.”
He says the response to the cache has been powerful, “Many people working together to find the last cache. It was the most beautiful moment in Geocaching, seeing all those people working together to find the five caches and finally celebrating the global find.”
Cache Fan, The Spindoctors, Earthquake5683, and JAKKTeam placed and maintain the other caches. They say it takes coordination and a focused approach. Cache Fan says the reward is in the interaction with other cachers, “It is also very exiting for the Geocachers seeking the caches of the series to get into contact with cachers from other countries to share stories and tips.”
The geocachers who’ve completed the cache say the key is team work. Solving a riddle in the Portugal leg leads you to the American leg (above) where you encounter another riddle. The answer leads you to the African leg (below) and so on.
Teams like “ROUND the WORLD” post pics of all team members when they complete the cache. So far, 20 teams have logged all legs of the entire Puzzle Cache. What are you waiting for? Go out and geocache around the world!
