Our First Hide

GC2D8RY LACking Nothing, Hides No Comments »

I finally hid the cache the kids gave me for Father’s Day.  I wanted to get permission from our church, and finding a spot to hide it was difficult.  All the land’s developed, so no natural area to stash it.  But I found a decent spot, submitted the hide, called "LACking Nothing" (hidden at Lilburn Alliance Church) and now the page is active.

Less than 1/2 hour later, "Da Posse" found it.  Man, that was fast!  Congrats, girls!

Geocaching Rules of Thumb

Ten very funny, and yet strangely accurate, rules of thumb for going geocaching. 

Cacheing on Business

Locations, Ohio, Trackables, United States No Comments »

I went up to Cleveland for one day on business, and thought this would be the best time to drop a geocoin that is trying to get the the northeast United States.  The client was done with me at around 3pm, so I went out to find a nearby cache that was also a “travel bug hotel”; one specifically purposed to trade trackables.

This was in a grown up area between businesses and at first I was concerned that I’d have to venture into the scrub.  I did a little bit, but then I decided to think like a cache hider, assessed the terrain rather than blindly following the GPS, and immediately found it.



I dropped in the coin, signed the log, and headed out for the airport.  Added one more state to our list of cache finds.
