Two days ago I was alerted to the existence of a web page that falsely claimed one of Geocaching.com’s co-founders, Jeremy Irish, had died.

Another late night dash in the rain to get #12. The souvenir icon is a GPS… And I didn’t use a GPS at all for this cache! Tonight’s cache was GC3N3PX DINO by CastlewoodCrew. I’ve tried numerous times to find this cache but being in a playground it’s always been difficult (excuses!). But in the …

Legs 11 – 31 Days Of Geocaching

Left the run a little late to grab #11 and needed to make a darkness dash! I snuck in to grab GC3Y57Y Hinemoana’s Mega Menagerie, which I glad didn’t require a magnifying glass as it was dark! It was a micro though, so the theme counts! No photos for this one. It was dark, so …
