6 steps to organize a Cache In Trash Out® (CITO) event

27. Januar 2017 // 0 Kommentare

Save the Earth while geocaching? Yes please! We call it CITO (Cache In Trash Out®). In 2017, geocachers around the globe will gather together during the weeks of April 22-30 and September 23– October 1 to pick up trash, remove invasive species, repair trails and more—plus earn a pretty sweet new souvenir. If you've never hosted a CITO before and you don't know where to begin, read on! Here are 6 steps to get you started. 1. Choose a location and a date Since your CITO event will result in an improvement to a public space, pick an area that's important to you and/or that needs special attention. Make sure you have permission to host the CITO from the local land manager. If you are unsure about which location is best, call a local park manager or geocaching organization. They can provide assistance and support in selecting the best location. 2. Pick an activity At it's very basic, a CITO event should involve geocachers taking part in an activity that produces an environmental improvement to a park or another cache-friendly place. CITO activities have ranged from trash pickups, to tree plantings, to invasive species removals, to trail maintenance. Need inspiration and direction? Talk to the land manager to find out where volunteers are most needed. See if there are any local environmental organizations already doing volunteer work, with whom you can partner. Call your city's Parks and Recreation department to find out if any city volunteer initiatives are planned. 3. Fill out the cache submission form Your CITO event will need to be submitted online at least two weeks before the date of the event. Give yourself a bit more time than that to square away any details. Type & Location: Select Cache In, Trash Out as the event type, and enter the coordinates where your event will take place. Waypoints (Optional): Is there parking near your event? A trailhead you need to find to get to the right spot? Let folks know. Description & Summary: Where is the event, what time does it start and end, and what will folks be doing? Is any special type of clothing or gear required? Will there be activities suitable for young children, or do you have to be a spring chicken to partake? Will there be a lunch break? Any safety concerns? The more details you can supply, the better. 4. Wait for the event to be published. Once you've reviewed and submitted your event listing, your local Reviewer will likely publish the event or request changes to it within a week. If you don't hear from your Reviewer, check to make sure the event listing is actually submitted and enabled. Check to see if the Reviewer has posted any Reviewer notes in the cache logs section. Once you've made any necessary changes, review and submit the listing once more. Feel free to ask your Reviewer for advice if you're struggling with the event listing. 5. Once the event is published, let people know about it! Is there a local geocaching organization you can reach out to, to let them know about your CITO? Maybe there are even some non-geocacher volunteer organizations you could recruit…the more the merrier! 6. On the day of the event… Show up early. Watch the cache page and your e-mail for last minute questions. See to it that every person knows what the activity is, and how to do it. Agree on a time and location to meet up and debrief at the close of the event. After the event is over, keep the event listed long enough to allow people to log the event. Then write a thank you note, and archive it. Voila! That's all, folks! Remember: the CITO 2017 souvenir will be available for events during the weeks of April 22-30 and September 23-October 1, so if you're planning to host an event that weekend make sure you submit the cache listing at least two weeks in advance, preferably more.

Deep Darkness — Geocache of the Week

26. Januar 2017 // 0 Kommentare

Traditional GC1QC0V by Balla & Silly Difficulty: 2 Terrain: 3 Location: Islas Baleares, Spain N 39° 28.425 E 002° 29.127 Mediterranean sea sideGorgeous viewsThis geocache is located in Islas Baleares, Spain in the western Mediterranean Sea near the eastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula. This idyllic area has everything you could ever dream of: beaches, prehistoric ruins, gorgeous countryside, and of course, awesome geocaching. Awesome geocachingThis geocache is in a former military zone which is now used by the public as a recreational area. It's not suitable for little kids, people with claustrophobia, or people with nyctophobia (fear of the dark), but if you're up for a hair raising adventure next to a beautiful ocean view (and who isn't besides children, or people with claustrophobia, or people with nyctophobia), then this is your cache. Former military zoneAre we sure we want to do this?Got claustrophobia?Normally for Geocache of the Week, we highlight several logs written by geocachers to give robust first-hand accounts of what it's like to actually be there. This cache offered many amazing logs, but one in particular had to be shared in its entirety. And now ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, we present to you a log by Jessex: We were looking forward to this cache. After hiking to the GZ, and looking down the shift, Mrs J says, “I'm staying up here.” Mr J got down to the first platform and started down the next ladder. With scenes from various catacomb films flashing in my head, I stopped. I swear I heard something evil in the darkness and I climbed as fast as I could back to daylight. Mrs J was kind but I was disappointed in myself, I knew I had get this cache. Down I went, ignoring the images of zombies, murderers and maniacs in my head. With my light in my pack, I descended into the darkness, the worst part when my body was in the tunnel but my head still in the shaft. As soon as I could I looked both ways down the tunnel, hoping to alleviate my fears of impending death but, alas, I could see nothing but darkness. With feet finally on the ground and light on, I could now see there was no danger, at least for as far as my light shone, 20 feet or so. Trying to remember the way from the cache page, with my back to the ladder and went right. There was a door to the left very close by, I thought how wonderful. Entering the room it grew in size as the light revealed it, I knew this was not the right place. The only option was a small door with the words “dead end” written above it, emphasising the DEAD. This tunnel was hacked from the rocks and led downward. I thought to myself, “There's no way in hell am I going down there!” if I had no scruples, I would have high tailed it out of there and logged a find, but damn my morals, I walked into the abyss. Next I did something I knew I shouldn't, I looked behind me. There was nothing there, of course, but now I was even more aware of the enveloping darkness and dread. At the T junction I went left as instructed but moved a bit too fast to see the cache, I had to go back and search more slowly. Eureka, I found it. But how to hold the light, cache and find a pen and open the cache without losing control. I managed but just barely. I took a TB, closed up the cache and redid it, without any monsters getting me. I noticed a light further down the tunnel, I thought I may have an easier way out. Managing to squeeze by the boulder blocking the exit and climb a little only to see I was deeper than I thought. I could not risk climbing the cliffs back to Mrs J, on fear of plummeting to my death. Dread overtook me as I realised I must leave the glorious sunshine and descend once again into the realm of the dead. Stiff-lipped, I slid into the tunnel and began walking into the darkness. My light was fading and I was sure I saw a being walking toward me, I sped up hoping to get to the turn before it did. I turned right and headed up the incline of jutting rocks, hearing something behind me, I refused to look, focusing on the tunnel ahead. At the door I closed it as far as I could, concentrated on getting to the ladder. Looking right, I saw the big room again, only this time a sinister feeling overtook me. I heard the door I had just shut begin to open. Don't look, don't look. Just get to the exit. I put the light into my pack, walking the last few steps in only the light offered by the ladder shaft. Up the ladder, up the ladder. I am not fit, and am carrying extra weight, but fear and adrenalin are great helpers. Up to the platform, listening to heavy breathing, was it mine or the monster's? Legs don't fail me now! The last few rungs almost got me but finally I was bathed in light and arms of Mrs J. We did it, mission accomplished! Favourite point, thanks.Jessex (UK) Stay strong, geocachersYou'll be fineJust a little furtherWhich tunnel is the correct one?Is that a dead end?Jose was hereIs this the cache?Light at the end of the tunnelAnd a little turtle friend to comfort you on a job well doneContinue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world.
