Geocache Description:

This was the first WiFi cache in the world.

You'll need special equipment to get the coordinates but the physical cache can be difficult to find, hence the difficulty rating.

This cache page was completely blank apart from the name and coordinates for many years. I only added this information when it’s historical significance became clear.

Many early cachers brought laptops to get the coordinates because they didn’t have a suitable smaller device. Several brought new “Personal Digital Assistants” (PDAs) which predated smartphones. Others didn’t have anything portable to bring at all and I met them at the coordinates to help out. Many of the older logs on this cache page make great reading.

The cache still has the original logbook placed in 2004 and still going strong. It’s not quite a historic who’s who of geocaching but it is very interesting in it’s own right.
