“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Many geocachers love to explore the world, plan ahead, and achieve caching goals. One of the more common questions we get asked is “When is [insert recurring geocaching moment] this year?” This year, we’re letting people know the dates for annual events, well ahead of time. So cachers, this may be the year that you finally decide to attend an Event Cache or even, *GASP!* host your own!

Additionally, we will run several promotions in the coming year (similar to Planetary Pursuit and Hidden Creatures) that we’re not quite ready to announce yet. Make sure to follow the Geocaching blog, Facebook, Twitter, and newsletter (sign up here) for more information as we roll out those geo-moments.

The confirmed souvenir moments for 2019 are: Continue reading →

Dog and dog's best friend, CacheDweeb
Dog and dog’s best friend, CacheDweeb

Did you know there are groups of gadget cache builders who slave away, day after day, week after week, huddled deep inside cluttered garages, endlessly tinkering with magnets, locks, pulleys, springs, clasps, and other such bric-a-brac? They do this for you, to put a smile on your face, and in turn, an even bigger smile on their own.

Meet one such clever cache creator, CacheDweeb. His claw-machine, drawer-popping, and sound-enhanced DONKEY KACHE was featured as a Geocache of the Week. We ask a few questions, get a few answers, and learn the method behind the madness of this master cache owner.
