N 37° 25.485 W 122° 00.910

Nav Aid: Logging what I believe to be a NDB (non-directional beacon) approach control at 5 miles out from 12L at KSJC Norman Mineta San Jose Intl. This is a foul weather approach over bay levee trails I was jogging.

On a semi-annual locationless logging day, I meant to claim SJC-VOR at the north end of the airport, but it was logged on 7/17/2003. I did get a picture of that VOR from De La Cruz Blvd. After I stepped out of the car to snap a picture of a 737 coming up to the boundary marker, I was detained by airport security. My name is now part of the Homeland Security database. Probably poor judgement given Threat Level Orange.

infoLocationless Caches could be considered the opposite of a Traditional Cache. Instead of finding a hidden container, you are given a task to locate a specific object and log its coordinates. A scavenger hunt of sorts, it involves collecting waypoints of various objects around the world.

Locationless caches have evolved into Waymarking. Waymark categories are similar to how locationless caches were listed on geocaching.com, but you can now search for the locations in each category.
