Planetary Pursuit Rescue Mission has launched

9. April 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Planetary Pursuit Rescue Mission has launched. To give geocachers more time to complete their missions, Planetary Pursuit has been extended for an additional week. Please make sure to log all your finds before Monday, April 16, at noon UTC to earn your Friend League points and Planetary Pursuit souvenirs. Since launching Planetary Pursuit three weeks ago, tens of thousands of Geocaching Explorers have blasted into space to log new geocaches and conquer extraterrestrial geocaching adventures.

We know many of you were counting on geocaching and logging your finds, especially during peak weekend times. We hope extending Planetary Pursuit for another week gives you the opportunity to achieve your Official Space Explorer badge. Thank you for all the stellar feedback—good and bad—regarding Planetary Pursuit and accompanying technical issues. We received thousands of comments, suggestions, and questions from enthusiastic geocachers all over our planet. We thank you and wish you well in completing your mission. [...]

Sky House – Geocache of the Week

29. März 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Traditional GCT7AZ by Stephen & Ken Wiens Difficulty: 1 Terrain: 5 Location: Alberta, Canada N 51° 18.761 W 115° 14.573 Often geocaching is done by driving in your car to the cache closest to your location. But sometimes you have to do some preparation, research, and gather the right equipment. Our Geocache of the Week falls into the latter category. Sky House is reached by undertaking a twelve pitch ice climb on the famous House of Sky Climb located in the Ghost River Wilderness Area in Alberta, Canada. While it is possible to hike to the cache during the summer, it is not recommended, as the trail is poorly marked and it is very easy to get lost. The best time to approach it is during the winter. It is recommended that you use a 4×4 to drive to the cache since the Ghost is known for its treacherous weather conditions. Once you get to the parking lot, it is a short hike of 2.2 km (1.4 mi) to get to the starting point. The climb up is considered easy by ice climbing standards but should only be attempted by experienced climbers. The elevation is about 270 m (886 ft) and typically takes one to three hours to reach. You are high in the Canadian Rockies at treeline so dress appropriately and bring the right gear. The cache itself is a large black pipe and rumored to be able to withstand the next ice age. It comes with a handy TOTT in case the cap freezes to the container. In case your ascent was rougher than expected, the cache contains the following emergency items: Thermal emergency space blanket Two emergency ponchos 5-in-1 survival aid kit Waterproof matchbox Pack of toe warmers There is also a handy fold-out seat for you to sit down and enjoy the scenery — a welcome moment of relaxation after twelve great pitches of ice climbing.

How to solve Mystery Caches (also known as Puzzle Caches)

22. März 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Keep calm and go Puzzle (Mystery) CachingThis article was written by Geocaching superstar and Geocaching HQ employee, Cathy (Prying Pandora). Do you look at Mystery Caches, also known as Puzzle Caches, and have no idea where to start? You're not the only one. Many geocachers feel overwhelmed by Mystery/Puzzle Caches, but they're not as scary as they appear. You just need to begin collecting your own “puzzling bag of tricks” to help you solve them. What should you keep in your puzzling bag of tricks? Think of the “tricks” as what you learn from each puzzle you solve. Many puzzles use the same ideas, so if you solve one, you can often pull that same trick out again and solve another similar puzzle. The more tricks you put in your bag, the easier Mystery/Puzzle Caches will be to solve. You will never stop finding new tricks to put in your bag, no matter how long you've been solving puzzles. This Mystery/Puzzle makes you literally put together a puzzle (GC3K2AZ)Some helpful tips to get started: Start with Mystery/Puzzle Caches with low difficulty ratings. Solve puzzles based on something you're familiar with. For example, if you know a lot about history, you might be able to solve a history puzzle more easily than a complicated math puzzle. Find a partner who is good at things you struggle with. Together, you can fill in each other's gaps. Analytical/methodical + creative/artistic = wide range of puzzle types. Each can see and work through things the other can't. Use a PC or laptop rather than your phone. There are some puzzles you cannot solve with a phone alone. Google and other search engines are your friend. Attend geocaching events and ask more experienced geocachers for help. Geocachers enjoy helping other geocachers. Geocachers helping geocachers solve Mystery/Puzzle CachesSome basic tricks to start filling your bag: Highlighted text. Some Mystery/Puzzle Caches use white font on the page that can only be seen when highlighted. Run your computer mouse along the entire cache page including text and images. If your cursor changes from an arrow to a pointed finger, you'll know you passed over a hidden link. Source code. Many times clues are hidden in the coding for a cache page. Depending on your browser, view the source code for that cache page. To find possible clues, choose a word/phrase from the description and use the Ctrl+F function. This will point you to the areas where a message may be hiding. Other languages. Some Mystery/Puzzle caches want you to “decode” other languages. Pasting the text into an online translator and converting it to your language often does the trick. Binary numbers and other bases. Use an online reference such as Purple Math that may help you with these types of mathematical stumpers. Local latitude and longitude. For example, Seattle, Washington, is at 47° North and 122° West. If you solve puzzles in Seattle and something you try makes a 47 or 122, keep going and it will likely give you the rest of the coordinates. Some Mystery/Puzzle Cache text is white and can only be seen when highlighted with a cursor. Here are some online resources which may give you more tricks to try: Geocaching Toolbox My Geocaching Profile There are many more! Do an online search for “geocaching puzzle solving tools”. Now that you are armed with some basic tricks, go forth, and happy puzzling! [...]
