Great Kaskaskia Dragon — Geocache of the Week

19. Juli 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Traditional GCHWFZ by Barronvondobbin Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Location: Illinois, USA N 38° 58.467 W 089° 07.191 As the quest for thirteen legendary Hidden Creatures enters its final phase, we search the world for the last of the elusive beings. There is quite a stir in the midwest region of the United States where a dragon, who once devoured maidens and guarded his treasure-filled cave, now watches over a sacred Traditional Cache. He may even be a distant cousin of this summer's infamous dragon and could hold the key to finding more creatures of lore. Image by NRL Regarded as one of the longest staring contests known to man or beast, the Great Kaskaskia Dragon stands opposite a knight in freshly painted armor. The dragon plays with gentleman's honor and never blinks, all while donning a dapper top hat. We hope he doesn't realize one of these days that the knight is unmanned and release a fiery blast upon us all! Image by Infinity TeamWhen the top hats come off, the real show begins! In actuality, the Great Kaskaskia Dragon has a nearby business at its beck and call, covering all sacrifice…err…dragon feedings including the fuel that lights the way for any geocacher who stops by. Visitors are bequeathed a golden coin inscribed with the little-known adage, “Dragon fire brings good luck, make a wish” which may be sacrificed to appease the Great Kaskaskia Dragon, resulting in a fiery blaze from his magnificent mouth. Image by LedbettePlease note, you may use the knight as an inhuman shield, but you will have no success coaxing him for the cache container. Only when you politely request an audience with The Great Kaskaskia will you be free to search within his scaled, metal body for the modest micro container. May the luck of the dragon's fire be with you all in the final quest for this geocache and all other Hidden Creatures! Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog.

Vergissmeinnicht – Geocache of the Week

12. Juli 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Multi-Cache GC6Z4NP by DiePastorentöchter Difficulty: 4 Terrain: 3 Location: Niedersachsen, Germany N 52° 28.379′ E 007° 33.964′ Cache owners are the cornerstone of geocaching and many of them spend a lot of time, energy, and money to create memorable caches for the geocaching community. Some cache owners may even rent an entire house and turn it into a Multi-Cache which everyone who visits it will never forget. Vergissmeinnicht tells the story of Wilhelm, a scientist who is obsessed with building a time machine. After a few failed attempts (one of them leading to the untimely demise of a wiener dog) Wilhelm and his friends, Conrad and Carl Eduard, are ready for another promising test. And while everything looks good at the beginning, a catastrophic failure causes the electricity which powers the time machine to short circuit and go out with a loud bang. Wilhelm was gone — but where in time did he end up? His story is re-discovered when you, the cacher, find a letter from Wilhelm to his lover Sophie, in which he asks her to return to his house, restart the time machine, and set things right. He left clues within the house to help you figure out how to reactivate the time machine and bring Wilhelm back. DiePastorentöchter is a team of six geocachers who found an abandoned house and immediately thought it was a great place to design an elaborate Multi-Cache. They rented the property and developed the background story so the cache had a central theme. Each room was decorated in a different way and contains different challenges for cachers to solve. It took about a year to build everything before the cache was available to the public and the cache owners are still making small refinements to enhance the experience. The cache is designed for a group of three cachers with a maximum of four at the same time, and takes four to six hours to complete. It has accumulated over 1100 Favorite points and is so popular that a reservation is required. Currently, there are no open spots until summer 2020. What is the most impressive geocache that you have found? 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.
