Too Cool Not To Highlight – The Rock by Geocaching.com Presents

Eric from Groundspeak emailed, asking us to share its latest ‘Geocaching.com Presents’ video. Having watched this clip promoting a physically taxing German hide, I have to admit it is very cool – and possibly the best journey/challenge for a cache I’ve ever watched.

Challenges: Don’t Hate The Game, Hate The Player

Complaints ranged from detesting a number of frivolous frog-kissing locationless challenges to disliking there being no necessity to use a GPS. If you’re looking to further your hatred of this new game, you should check …
