Let’s talk about geocache quality

19. Juni 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Today, we're inviting you to join a community conversation about geocache quality. You have the opportunity to share thoughts about how you define geocache quality and what you think the community or Geocaching HQ can do to improve it. But before we get into specifics, let's talk about why we think this conversation is necessary. Cache quality has always been an important topic. In order for geocaching to continue to thrive, people have to enjoy what they're finding. Here at Geocaching HQ, we've taken steps in recent years to bring cache quality into greater focus, including: the Geocache Health Score, the introduction of Virtual Rewards, recognition of great cache hiders in the Geocaching Blog, and more. If we're going to do more, we'd like to first give geocachers a place to make their voices heard and see how others in the community feel about cache quality. We have opened a new thread in our User Insights Forum. (We're also opening dedicated threads for German and French speakers. For all other languages, please answer in the English thread and we'll translate when compiling the feedback.) There are four questions to answer: In your mind, what is a high quality geocache? In your mind, what is a low quality geocache? What steps can the community take to improve geocache quality? What steps can Geocaching HQ take to improve geocache quality? The threads are open for three weeks. After compiling the feedback, we expect to follow up with a survey to gather more information. Geocaching is played by a vibrant community of millions of people across the world. We hope this conversation will help identify common themes and possible next steps as we continue to build tools and services for the game. [...]

Jardin du Tripot — Geocache of the Week

14. Juni 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Traditional GC5G0BH by scrouny Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Location: Basse-Normandie, France N 49° 25.128 E 000° 13.967 In the heart of Normandy, overlooking the southern bank of the Seine, lies the small medieval town of Honfleur. Its history can be traced back to 1027 in a letter from Richard III, Duke of Normandy. The past has been preserved with the landmarks of its rich history, including a converted garden atop a retired tannery with commissioned art pieces and a hidden logbook for this Geocache of the Week! Le Jardin du Tripot is not just any other garden. The location is serene, with the waters of La Claire routed carefully in stair-stepping troughs on their way to La Morelle. However, the water element serves another purpose: it makes the bronze statues in the courtyard come alive on the hunt for a geocache. Image by familiatableto – 2011, “Sous la pluie” Placed in December 2013, artist Annick Leroy supplied two special sculptures meant to interact with the drainage system of the nearby stream. The first depicts a young boy perched under an umbrella. When water is routed to the pipe directly overhead, it gently cascades over the edges of the boy's cover as he gazes with a dry smile to the opposite side of the garden. Behind his eyes, there is a secret…perhaps it has something to do with the cache hidden close by? Image by CarPat – 2009, “4 oies crachant de l'eau”If you follow the young boy's gaze, just beyond the pedestrian streets lined with half-timbered houses, you will easily locate the second converted fountain. Try not to ogle too long at this gaggle! The water is pumped to gracefully exit each beak of the four geese in a steady arc and returned to the river below. They decide to avoid eye contact with any geocacher so as to not give away ground zero. Image by piot57 – 2011, “fresque représentant des teinturiers,” length 10 m (32.8 ft) Luckily, the cache does not incorporate an active water feature to retrieve and tries hard to stay dry in its surroundings! Once the cache is located, the finder can appreciate the mosaic fresco nearby, depicting six focused men and women. The scene is in tribute to the hardworking tanners and dyers that inspired the preservation of the vestiges of the old tanneries in the area, one of which is located adjacent to the garden, and an integrated part of Honfleur's past.

Woest Willem – Geocache of the Week

7. Juni 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Traditional GC4Y3F1 by De Bosmannetjes Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Location: Noord-Holland, Netherlands N 52° 55.927′ E 005° 00.071′ What do geocachers and pirates in common? They both treasure the treasure. Avast ye landlubbers! Join us for another wild ride and learn more about the adventures of Woest Willem (Wild William), a once fierce scourge of the seven seas in our Geocache of the Week. Woest Willem is inspired by a popular Dutch children's book of the same name. Willem is a crusty old pirate that lives alone in his house that he built with his own hands. One day, a terrified boy mistakenly climbs up the roof and Willem begrudgingly rescues him. They become friends and start building a boat together. Eventually, Willem has to admit that he never learned to swim, so the boy teaches him how, strengthening the bond between two unlikely mateys. The cache is located in the Netherlands on the outskirts of a small hamlet called Vatrop. Placed with permission of the property owner, it resides in a large wooden box attached to the property. Opening the box reveals a secret treasure chest Willem hid here after his retirement. It is a true pirate treasure, filled with doubloons and other valuable trinkets. Once you sign the logbook take a few minutes to explore the surrounding area as there are many interesting and unexpected art installations close to the pirate's home. Rumor has it that Willem got into art after his retirement, but we might never find out if that is the truth. Continue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world.

5 Film Genres GIFF Audiences Love

6. Juni 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Attention film-making geocachers and geocaching filmmakers! You now have 58 days to plan, write, film, edit, and submit your original short film to the Geocaching International Film Festival! That's less time than you had yesterday and more time than you'll have tomorrow. The film submission deadline is August 1, 2018. Learn about submitting a film. Before you perfect your plots and acquire your actors, read on to learn about five film genres that made successful showings at GIFFs of the past. Of course, your film need not fit perfectly into any of these categories, but we suggest using them to kick off your GIFF brainstorming session. #1 | You Might Be a Geocacher If… This type of GIFF film is built around an inside joke or experience that only a geocacher understands. It invites the audience to laugh along—or groan in sympathy—with the narrator as she encounters a comical, frustrating, charming, or eyeroll-inducing situation, one that most geocachers encounter at some point during their geocaching careers. Here are some examples from previous years: Geocaching Is Free (2017) A Cacher's Worst Nightmare (2016) It's Not About the Numbers (2016) NYC Caching: Muggle Madness (2016) My Geocaching Addiction (2013) The plots in the five films above could be summarized in a single sentence that begins with, “You might be a geocacher if…”. For example, with the film Geocaching is Free, the sentence would be, “You might be a geocacher if you end up spending half your monthly paycheck on geocaching gear.” Of course that's not true for all geocachers all the time, but many a cacher has faced the temptation of buying the newest GPS, the most waterproof hiking boots, or the latest in tupperware technology in pursuit of a cache. The key is that the audience can participate in a collective giggle at the humor, a groan at the irony, or a head shake at the folly of the situation the narrator has encountered. Note that this genre of film is the least interesting to muggles… at least until they're converted! #2 | What if? In November 2015 the world asked, “What if ballerinas geocached?” and California cacher stingrayabbray answered. Her film, How to Geocache Like a Ballerina, was a huge international hit. The film genre we're calling “What if?” is the polar opposite of the “You might be a geocacher if…” genre. It takes a familiar part of geocaching reality and inventively twists it on its head. What if one day all bison tubes turned into bisons? What if the cachers become the cached? What if two geocachers got married, had a kid, and that kid was actually a lock-n-lock? (FYI, that last one is already taken!) Check out these imaginative finalist films from recent years: The Future of Geocaching (2017) Little Geo-rge (2017) 5 Lesser-Known Souvenirs (2016) Geocaching, Orchestrated (2016) How to Geocache Like a Ballerina (2015) The Future of Geocaching (2015) Signal (2015) GeoDouble (2014) This genre is inexhaustible, so it's a pretty great one to start with if you're in the beginning stages of brainstorming. The only limits you'll face are technical, logistical, and of course, those set forth in the submission rules. #3 | Personal Story / Drama Not every film has to be funny. (You're joking! No, I'm literally not. That's the point.) The GIFF finalist films from the past few years might make it seem like comedies are received better than serious films, but the list of finalists is often more a reflection of submission trends than an audience preference for comedy. Geocaching HQ receives far more submissions of humorous films than serious ones, so most of the finalists have been comedies in recent years. That being said, we truly love watching earnest stories about geocaching, and if they elicit more tears than laughter that's fine with us too. The 2016 Signal Award Winner was an uplifting story about how geocaching changed one woman's life. It joined a strong contingent of lovely and sometimes intense films that show off why geocaching is special. The Art of Geocaching (2017) A Life of a ‘Change' (2016) GeoLove (2015) The Ubercache (2013) Remember the Fallen (2013) The Two Mountains (2013) We called this genre “Personal Story / Drama” because it sounds classier than “not funny”. But “not funny” is actually what we mean and we're excited by the breadth of sub-genres. Documentaries, romances, fantasies, biographies… all contain an untold number of fresh plots that are ripe for the picking. #4 | Musical Not everyone is singing the praises of musicals, and we haven't seen too many of them pass the judges' table. But we think there's a real chance this year for someone to make it to the finals with geocaching's next big dancing or singing hit. (The author of this article would like to disclose at this time her complete and unequivocal enthusiasm for all musical GIFF submissions. She is not, however, a current GIFF judge). Only five musical films have ever made the finalist list in the past: That's Not Trash (2016) When I Geocache (2016) How to Geocache Like a Ballerina (2015) Geocaching Freak (2015) Spend a Little Time With You (2014) Why so few? Probably because adding an original musical score (or original choreography!) to a film requires a daunting additional modicum of effort. It can also be difficult to seamlessly layer music and/or dancing over an element of geocaching without it feeling forced. An effective option for someone creating a musical submission might be to choose a particular element of the game as their focus, then add music or dancing. For example, That's Not Trash is a catchy pseudo-rap that pokes fun at the fine line between discarded objects that can be used for making geocaches, and pure garbage. If you're going this direction with your submission, it's important to remember that the musical part of your film should be able to stand on its own without the backdrop of geocaching. In other words, the song should be pleasant, interesting, or entertaining to listen to and the dance performed well enough to be enjoyable or interesting to watch. #5 | The FTF Hunt Let's talk briefly about the FTF hunt as a plot tool in GIFF films. It's been done. Great, now that that's taken care of, let's move on to the next genre… Alright, alright. Of course you can still make a creative and finalist-worthy GIFF film about an FTF hunt. But we're telling you right now—it's not going to be easy. Because it really has been done before. Eight times in four years, in fact: FTFever (2017) The Art of Geocaching (2017) Spitting the Dummy (2016) The FTF Hunter (2016) The Deadliest Cache (2014) First to Find – The Woodland Hunt (2014) FTF (2013) FTF Huntress (2013) It's easy to understand why an FTF hunt makes a good film plot. There's built-in tension, because the fate of the FTF is hanging in the balance. There are heroes and anti-heroes. And it's a plot that's easy to twist: there was a third geocacher all along, and he's first to find; the cache itself was muggled, and nobody's first to find; the final cache is up a tree and our hero is afraid of heights! No denying it, FTF hunts are fun to imagine on the screen. But because we're so intimately familiar with how FTF hunts work both on screen and off, anyone pursuing this as a film idea really needs to do something totally unique. Maybe the production quality is stunning and the acting and dialogue exemplary. Maybe it's based on the true story of an FTF hunt that went totally wrong in a way we've never seen before. Perhaps it imagines what an FTF chase might be like with a very specific and unique cast of characters. Whatever the case, if you submit an FTF hunt film to GIFF, know that it may be judged against all other FTF hunt films ever submitted. Do your research. Watch previous FTF-themed finalists to know what's been done. Good luck! [...]

Lost – DHARMA Initiative — Geocache of the Week

31. Mai 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Letterbox Hybrid GC11EJJ by mitak Difficulty: 4.5 Terrain: 4.5 Location: Jihomoravský kraj, Czechia N 49° 11.583′ E 016° 33.805′ Lost may be an ironic name for a geocache, but not when you consider the popular TV show. In case you don't know about the show, here's a quick summary: the series took place on a mysterious, deserted, jungle island with secrets continuously uncovered by the cast as the plot progressed. One of the most groundbreaking discoveries was the DHARMA Initiative, and it could be a one for you too — if you find the geocache. The Difficulty and Terrain on Lost – DHARMA Initiative are intimidating, set at 4.5 of 5. It is a clever and laborious 7-stage Letterbox Hybrid that was “uncovered” near Brno, Czechia by Cache Owner mitak. Climb into secret hatches, explore the underground tunnels, and hike through a wilderness forest to get to each DHARMA station (Swan, Pearl, Flame, Arrow, Hydra, and Staff). The first step is to read the message on the cache page to prepare for your journey, the second step is to download the ZIP file which contains a secret website URL with instructions from DHARMA. Only once you're at the location can you find the missing piece to the next web URL and move on to the next stage. At each site, there are different puzzles that lead you through each step of the journey. At the final, the Letterbox contains a journal, some SWAG, likely trackables, and one DHARMA stamp, which is a symbol of pride for completing this cache. Whether you're a fan of multi-stage geocaches or the TV show, this cache is a hidden treasure to add to your bucket list. If you're planning a trip, the cache owner heeds caution not to do this mission alone, and you'll want to prepare accordingly ahead of time. Cache experiences like this are always nice to share with friends or family anyways. Does this sound like a mission you want to sign up for?
