Geocaching Goals for 2010/11

My first year as a geocacher is officially up. One year ago today I found my first cache, W for Walk on Over, and became completely addicted. Twelve months, and 574 caches, later I’m still addicted…this has to be a record for me. Dunedin is an excellent place to take up geocaching. There is a …

Geocaching In The Snow

Since I started geocaching, it has been my long-standing goal to cache in the snow. Unseasonably cold weather has produced snow showers which allowed me that experience today whilst I was seeking ‘The Photograph’ (GC153V9).

Above the clouds

A new puzzle cache was published a few nights ago, A Prime Location (GC2DDCT). I completed the puzzle that evening but wasn’t able to get out to find it until the next morning. I expected the view on the way to the cache to look something like this: but instead I was surprised to see …

Start with a photo…

It’s not about the numbers. Well, okay, sometimes it is. But not all the time. It’s mostly about the thrill of the hunt. I just happen to like numbers. What am I talking about? Geocaching of course. This blog is largely dedicated to the subject, mostly as I am entirely addicted to it. Hopefully this …
