  1. Flashlight recommended. In the event you forget yours, one will be provided for you but greatly reduces your searching time. Bring your own pen and tennis shoes to ruuuuuuuuun!

  2. Somewhere, off in the distance, I thought I heard someone singing “When The Light’s Go Down In The City…..”. It was then I knew this wasn’t your typical urban night cache.

  3. Definition of Geocaching: a treasure hunting game where you use a GPS to hide and seek containers
    Definition of Neoncaching: an exciting game where you use your eyes to hide and seek awesome light fixtures in dark tunnels!

  4. So I fall asleep on my way to Yankee stadium and wake to the conductor announcing “Next Stop, Ground Speak Headquarters”. Didn’t realize the B train went this far west!

  5. OK – I just spent 15 minutes translating this hint and all it says is, “No hint needed.” Now how am I supposed to find the cache?!!! – KBLAST

  6. This geocache checks out your gps. If your gps has Chirp functionality, you’ll get a lame text in your gps screen pointing out the cache location. But if your gps doesn’t support Chirp…….WOW!


  7. “HEY!!! They spelled it wrong! Geocachin’ ain’t two words! Its only ONE!!” “Yeah , you’re right…And they also put that ‘g’ on the end of it…” “Weird…”


  8. Scientists have discovered a new breed of Firefly in a New York tunnel system. They say “a saturation of these ‘geocaches’ in the area has caused the fireflies to start mimicking images they see often. We have nicknamed them GC Fireflies.”

  9. Gps $200
    Flashlight $10
    Pen $2
    Finding a micro in a dimly lit subway tunnel with gps going crazy… Priceless!!
