A Walk with Webfoot follows Webfoot as he goes about his geocaching odyssey.

About This Item

When I first discovered geocaching, back in March, 2001, I wondered how I could keep track of this new obsession of mine. Then I discovered how easy it would be to create a personal travel bug and this is the result. A Walk with Webfoot was created to follow the path that I take as I journey mostly around the state of California with a couple of sojourns outside the state, while geocaching along the way.

I also have a blog entitled Webfoot Wanderings, which is where I get to run off the mouth about a variety of things that I like to do, mostly photography, but occasionally I'll write about geocaching and other GPS games as well. Feel free to participate in any kind of dialog you want there. As one of my friends in his own blog states, "I don't bite."

You could look at this as my on-line blog of my successful geocaching experiences. I'll place this in caches of my own when I go out on maintenence runs as well. Hey, if I find my own, that's a success, isn't it?

Retrieve It from a Cache 02/28/2020 Webfoot retrieved it from Creamy Roasted Hatch Chile California   Visit Log

I'd gotten the cache around the corner from this one, then drove over here to make a quick grab on this one. I got to spend some time talking with a couple of dog walkers while I waited for the street to clear so I could make the grab. Once everyone left with their various pooches, I was able to make the quick grab.

I was in the neighborhood and working my way back to Cal State Dominguez Hills to pick up my son, but the lure of a couple of cache finds on the way was just too much, so I stopped here to make the grab on this one. I wasn't sure what I was in for at first, but once I read everything, I pretty much knew what I would be seeing at ground zero.

After getting this one, I then went around the corner to make a quick grab on another one, then came back here to get some liquid refreshments. Much needed caffeine.

Sometimes when you get FTFs, you work hard for them, because there might be a lot of competition for them from the local cachers, they published at an odd time like the two of mine did last night and early this morning, or there's just a lot of them all at once and you have to plan out everything to maximize the potential of getting as many FTFs as possible.

Or, you can get really lucky, as is the case with this one. I happened to be in the neighborhood today getting a nearby challenge cache. Once I'd found that one, I still had some time to kill before I had to pick up the youngest, so I checked Cachly to see what else was available nearby and just on the outer edge of the circle of the caches that showed up on the map was this beautiful red FTF logo on the cache. Well, what the heck.

So off I went. Got over here and parked just down the street from it to walk a little ways, although I realized after the fact that I could have parked right next to ground zero. So I found the cache in the first spot I looked in (coordinates were spot on by the way) and then walked around the corner to open up the log and sign it. Unrolled the entire thing and there were no signatures on the logsheet, so I used my green pen and signed my name and the date on the top line. FTF this morning at 11:06, exactly 40 minutes after the email came through saying the cache had been published. Heck, it would have taken me more minutes than that just to drive out here if I was really interested in getting the FTF. But I'll take it nonetheless because sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

This will get me a cache closer to claiming the found on first day challenge for 500 caches out in Kern County too.

I needed to be in the area today to drop my son off for an interview at Cal State Dominguez Hills this morning, so I researched a little bit and spotted this challenge cache nearby, so this one became the primary focus of the morning. Pretty easy find once I found the access point to this well hidden park.

Having found caches in 21 different states, I more than qualify for this one and Project GC says I have 173 souvenirs now, with one more that will come tomorrow at my morning coffee event. Surprisingly, I do not have the 12/12/12 souvenir. I'm not sure what was happening that day, but I didn't get that one. Oh well.

Date fix.

2nd of two that I had publish in the wee hours of the night last night. One right before midnight and one right after midnight. Both of them have 3 people watching the caches, which I assume are the FTF hogs out there. This particular one has already been solved once, but there were four misses already.
