Geocaching on the water

Paddle your way to a T5 geocache

After attending the MOGA 2014 Mega-Event in Ohio, my wife and I were driving through Kentucky on our way home. I opened the Geocaching® app to search for caches along our route when I caught sight of a ton of T5 caches. I mean a boatload of them (pun intended because they were the kind that required a boat to find). They were on creeks, rivers, and lakes. So many of them! I’d never seen anything like it. Alas, I had no boat. No kayak. No canoe. No watercraft of any kind.

I pondered the boat idea upon returning home. Impulsive as I may be when it comes to geocaching, I know enough not to immediately drop hundreds or thousands of dollars on a watercraft. So, I dipped my toe into water caching by tagging along on a lake outing with a friend who owns an extra hardshell kayak. I loved it. Still, I wasn’t quite ready to make a huge investment. Instead, I purchased an inflatable kayak for around $75.

Often geocaching is done by driving in your car to the cache closest to your location. But sometimes you have to do some preparation, research, and gather the right equipment. Our Geocache of the Week falls into the latter category.

Sky House is reached by undertaking a twelve pitch ice climb on the famous House of Sky Climb located in the Ghost River Wilderness Area in Alberta, Canada. While it is possible to hike to the cache during the summer, it is not recommended, as the trail is poorly marked and it is very easy to get lost. The best time to approach it is during the winter.
