19. Februar 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Der Winter will es jetzt noch einmal richtig wissen. In den kommenden Tagen dreht die Strömung langsam auf Nordost. Dann kommen eisige Luftmassen aus Sibirien zu uns. Diese sorgen für Nächte mit häufig strengem Frost. Tiefausläufer lassen es dabei zeitweise schneien.Mehr dazu: https://news.unwetter24.net/eisige-kaelte-jetzt-legt-der-winter-eine-schippe-drauf/ [...]

I ❤️ Paris – Geocache of the Week

15. Februar 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Wherigo GC2JVJB by starless Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2 Location: Paris, France N 48° 51.270′ E 002° 21.140′ Paris has a long and eventful history. In 508 A.D. Clovis the Frank, the first king of the Merovingian dynasty, made the city the capital of France. Nowadays, Paris is considered to be the city of love. Couples from around the globe choose Paris as a destination for a romantic getaway and to be immersed in the rich culture of the city. For geocachers, our Geocache of the Week offers an additional reward for visiting the famous sites the city has to offer. The “I ❤️ Paris” Wherigo lets you explore Paris like any ordinary muggle while hunting for an elusive cache at the same time. Stages are placed at forty landmarks across Paris and its surroundings. You must discover five of them to get the coordinates of the final cache. You can start the game wherever you want since there is no particular order of finds. Just be advised that the final location is not very far from the published coordinates. But there is a twist — you do not know where those forty stages are. If you think you are in an interesting location or near a landmark, get out your mobile phone and start the Wherigo cartridge to see if it is part of it. So while you marvel at the French Gothic architecture of Notre-Dame de Paris, ascend to the top of the Eiffel Tower, stare at Mona Lisa's smile, take a stroll along the Seine, or relax in a cafe in Montmartre — make sure to open the cartridge and see if you are closer to your goal. After you collect your five stages and make your way towards the final coordinates, fond memories of the journey that got you here will be on your mind, and, as your sign the logbook, you too will say: “Je t'aime Paris”.

Underground — Geocache of the Week

8. Februar 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Letterbox Hybrid GC28G7E by Dr.Suicide Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 3.5 Location: Czech Republic N 50° 48.209′ E 014° 21.726′ There's a Letterbox Hybrid in the Czech Republic that may have slipped under your radar; literally. Hidden deep beneath the surface within winding tunnels is Czech Republic's most Favorited Letterbox Hybrid with 839 Favorite points. Its name: Underground. Pre-adventure checklist: Torch or headlamp Clothes that can get dirty Water Hiking boots or athletic footwear Geo-partner The coordinates bring you to a small parking lot. The first thing to look for is the sign marking the end of the village. A path by the sign leads you to a small bridge off the trail which leads to the “underground”. The small opening hatch to the inside is roughly one meter (~three feet) wide. The tunnel opens up into a corridor with four tunnel entries, then keep going straight. A few more tunnels and one ladder later (be sure to follow the instructions on the cache page) and you find yourself in the same room as the “big black monster” which has eaten the geocache. The final part of the adventure is to bravely enter the belly of the beast and locate the cache inside. The cache itself is a larger lock n lock and because it is a Letterbox Hybrid you can expect letters and postcards on the inside. After conquering the mighty monster and sifting through the SWAG sign your name in the logbook and head towards the surface. The adventure takes roughly an hour and a half to complete. Be sure to notify someone on the outside before attempting this cache, and it is strongly encouraged to try this cache with a geo-partner. Lots of geocachers do this cache together as a crew. Who would you bring along on this cache journey? Continue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world. Check out all of the Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog.

Australia’s deaf geocaching community

2. Februar 2018 // 0 Kommentare

This blog post was written by geocaching superwoman and Geocaching HQ employee, Annie Love. Deaf Australia GeocachingLast November I attended The Alexandra Event 2017 in Victoria, Australia. I was welcomed by geocachers from all over the country and spent the sunny spring weekend exploring the beautiful countryside through some amazing geocaches. While I toured around with local reviewers Pete and Helen (Bunjil), we ran into a group of four ladies on a similar caching path. They were usually a step ahead of us while solving some fun yet tricky gadget caches. I quickly learned that I'd have to communicate differently with this caching group since all the members of their team were deaf. Smiles, waves, my typical thumbs up, and writing on paper would be the proper methods of communication. As the day progressed smiles increased each time we saw each other. After meeting this wonderful group of women, I learned from Pete and Helen that they're part of a large community of deaf geocachers. There are about 25 members in the Deaf Australia Geocaching Facebook group from all over the country. The group communicates mostly on Facebook and they often meet in person at geocaching events throughout Australia. Through their group, they tell stories of their adventures and share their challenges with each other. Upon my return, I reached out to one of the members I met and asked a few questions. Cheryl (crank1), created her account in early 2009 after she was introduced to the game by her friend Lava12, and has since found nearly 9,000 geocaches. When asked how the game impacts her life, she says “It takes me to places I wouldn't usually go. Also keeps me young and active.” Grabbing a tree cacheApparently, a member of the group is one of the top five finders for the country. Everlasting, with over 26,000 finds, is a good friend of Cheryl's and often meets up with her in Melbourne for cache outings. Cheryl told me, “She (Everlasting) travels around Australia caching. When she visits Melbourne, she stays at my house and we go caching for hours. She is a fantastic help to others in the caching community and will always offer assistance.” Great geocaching friendsCheryl explained that being deaf can create challenges when searching for certain geocaches, such as those which require music knowledge. However, deafness can provide advantages for other types. Cheryl says, “Being deaf means my other senses are heightened. When I search for caches, sometimes my visual cues and clues are ‘sharper' than other cachers.” I am fortunate to have met Cheryl and learn about their group. The smiles from them and their cheers when they figured out a tricky gadget cache are memories I'll never forget. A farewell event at Alice Springs [...]
