Geocaching is about to get mean … lol

If you’ve been involved with Geocaching before, you’ll know that sometimes the hides are just plain mean.  Some of them are so tiny that you need a tool of some sort to extract the "container" and some are in places that require you need to look like some sort of sifty stalker in order to make the retrieval.  Anyway, I don’t see why everyone else should have all the fun so when I get over this back injury problem I’ve got (which has me laid up on the couch 8 hours a day) I’m going to hide one of these …

Letters & numbers only, please!

The description on the site I got this one from includes the words “expect a few DNFs” and I reckon they’re probably right.  Should be fun, though.

I also found this container on the same site.  It’s a genuine decontamination kit container leftover from army surplus supplies.  It even has the original sticker on the outside that says what the kit contains and how to use it … kinda creepy if you think about the implications.  The container is awesome so I’m really hoping it doesn’t get stolen …

Melbourne heat + Geocaching = Exhaustion

It’s been so freakin’ hot recently that going out geocaching has been tough.  It’s been an exhausting but worthwhile experience, though.

Anyway, I got home from work and decided that I’d head out to grab a couple of geocaches that I’d been meaning to get for a while.  Most of them were easy, with one exception … it was downright mean!  Check this out …

Yes, it’s a fake piece of chewed chewing gum!  It actually has a tiny logbook on the inside … W.  T.  F.

Another cool geocaching container

Even though I only wrote about Geocaching a day or so ago, I had to write another quick post to show another of the cool & inventive hide methods that cache owners have come up with.  This one was an easy enough find but I did have to use the hint, despite the hint actually being part of the cache name.  Check this out …

Cool Geocache container!

Cool, eh?  🙂

Spoiler Alert!

If you want to try and find this cache yourself, the GC code is GC2KFTJ. Be sensible and don’t click that link if you don’t want to know which geocache this is.  After all, the hunt is most of the fun, right?

The craziness of Geocaching

Back in 2009 my friends Toni and Phil (now Mr and Mrs Cox!) introduced me to Geocaching.  I took to it with a vengeance back then when I was living in Melbourne and continued after moving back to NZ for a while.  I took an unintentional break from it for a few months and didn’t do a whole lot in 2010 but decided to get back into it again since I’m now back in Melbourne.

Nano caches … you suck!

Without trying to make this post into a Geocaching introduction I’ll just say that sometimes the caches are so small and clever that I’m left either grinning stupidly or silently cursing the cache owner under my breath.  🙂  Check these out … obviously it’d be silly to say which geocaches these are otherwise I’d be spoiling it for someone else.
