Saddle up, grab your lasso, and put on your cowboy hat to prepare for “Goonies Revenge: Rodeo,” located in the wild wild Nordrhein-Westfalen of Germany.
A golden ammo box full of juicy geocaching secrets travels around France! A beloved German geocaching rock band retires after 10 years! A wheelchair-bound geocacher simultaneously nabs his first T5 and his 1,000th cache!
Geocachers have always done great things and this past year was no exception. Here are some of the most phenomenal geocaching community stories from 2017.
Feast your eyes on the KochBuchCache in the region of Thüringen, Germany located in the quaint old city of Erfurt. In case you don’t speak German, “Kochbuch” translates to “cookbook”, and you’re encouraged to add your own delicious recipes to the book when you find the cache.
Hanover is the capital city of Lower Saxony. The city is known for its quaint aesthetic, world class events, and the Eilenriede — a forest in the middle of the city that is twice the size of Central Park in New York City. The Geoheimnisse der Region Hannover GeoTour (GT31) hosts 75 unique gadget caches with a total of almost 10,000 Favorite points — that’s an average of 135 Favorite points per cache! If you’ve seen the caches for yourself it’s no mystery why this GeoTour has the second-most Favorite Points in the world.

Geocaching can vary around the world. It also varies for individual cachers. Sure, the concept is the same. Use coordinates to find a location, search until you make the find, open the container, sign the log, make trades, then replace the container. Repeat as often as the heart desires, or as often as the obsession requires.
I recently posted about finding a T5 geocache in my flip flops on my personal Facebook wall. Many of my geocaching friends around the world think I’m incredibly silly (or just plain stupid) for geocaching in my flip-flops, but I do it anyway. The T5 geocaches I’ve searched out this year in my flip flops were only accessible via boat/kayak, so my choice in caching footwear made perfect sense up to that point. But that recently changed.
