TB Kazerne “Spuit 11” — Geocache of the Week

18. Oktober 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Traditional GC6CN64 by GC5LT2 Difficulty: 2 Terrain: 1 Limburg, Netherlands N 51° 02.194′ E 005° 50.634′ There's more than meets the eye at this TB hotel. From the outside it looks like your typical, mundane utility box. But, isn't that the point of geocaching — to hide something special in plain sight, make it look like it belongs there, in a place where no one expects to find it? This cache embodies that spirit by hiding an entire fire department and puzzle contraptions inside that mundane utility box, making it a strong Geocache of the Week. Like any good firefighter you're going to need equipment to extinguish that burning feeling you get when looking for a geocache. The following items are needed: 9-volt battery Small magnet At least 60 cm (24 in) of rope It may not initially be clear what you are doing with those items when you approach the utility box and it's locked, but there are some clever hints to look out for: What do firefighters fight? Fire. What does fire create? Smoke. There's a curious “No Smoking” sign that might turn you in the right direction. Once you are inside the cache and attach the battery, you see what makes the cache so special. It is filled with a child-size firefighter outfit, a firetruck, axes, and walkie-talkies. It should also be mentioned that TB Kazerne “Spuit 11” has earned an 86% Favorite rating (533 total Favorite points) in its two years of publication. Cachers of all ages enjoy this fun, creative, and well-maintained hide. Continue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world.

The Cave — Geocache of the Week

11. Oktober 2018 // 0 Kommentare

Traditional GC1EFM0 by global trekkers Difficulty: 2 Terrain: 5 Faro, Portugal N 37° 05.219 W 008° 25.466 If you make the trek, make sure to sign the logbookClose your eyes. Take in a deep breath. Let it out. Transport yourself to the most exquisite beach you can imagine. It's sunny, warm, and there's even a remote cave. Now imagine there's a geocache there, too. This is no dream. This is “The Cave” in Faro, Portugal, our Geocache of the Week. Portugal is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. This corner of Europe is known for their fabulous beaches, traditional fishing villages, exquisite port wine, rich culture, and their passionate geocaching community. “The Cave” is also known as Algar de Benagil“The Cave” is also known as Algar de Benagil, located along the Algarve, the southernmost region of Portugal in the municipality of Faro. This T5 Traditional can be accessed by boat, canoe, or kayak and takes about 15 minutes from nearby Praia de Benagil (Benagil Beach). Swimming to the cave is not advised since ocean currents can be strong. You may pass several local fishing boats as you make this trek. Can be accessed by boat, canoe, or kayakFrom late morning to mid-afternoon the cave comes alive and is perfect for those posts to make all your friends back home jealous. The sunlight permeates directly from the top opening which creates an interesting contrast between light and shadow. Algar de Benagil is Instagram-famous so to increase your chances of a remote getaway, make the journey at off times and rent your own kayak (and life vest) rather than booking with one of the tour boats. Being the only ones there is still possible if you're flexible with timesWhile you're there, consider hiking to the dome on top of the cave. It is possible to make the trek in flip-flops, but if you have a dry bag to add a pair of sneakers, it's a good idea. It's advised to stay behind the fence and take in the view from there. View from the top of the domeSince satellite reception is non-existent inside the cave, the cache is not at the given coordinates. The coordinates will get you to the west entrance, but the cache is hidden in the highest rock at the darkest part of The Cave. You'll just have to go there and find out for yourself.

5 reasons to keep geocaching as the seasons change

10. Oktober 2018 // 0 Kommentare

When you think of geocaching, two options often come to mind: a summer activity or something to do while traveling…in summer. Both of those are great choices, but before you prepare to pack away your TOTT (tools of the trade), have you considered caching in the shoulder season?Shoulder season is the time between the summer and winter seasons (or winter and summer for all you southern hemisphere folks!) Spring and fall may have a bit less predictability, but one thing is certain: there are fewer people on the trails. We've compiled our top five reasons to show why these months are perfect for geocaching. 1. Have the trails to yourselfDuring the off-season, trails tend to quiet down. Kids are back in school, vacations wrap up, and the weather begins to change. This also means it's easier to park at trailheads, parklands, beaches, and more. Easy parking and fewer muggles means more finds! Photo: CivilRightsCacher2. Enjoy the viewWhile transitioning temperatures can make the weather less predictable, the variable conditions can lead to some stunning landscapes! Wildflowers begin to bloom in the spring and the leaves turn to vibrant colors in the fall. Make a List and hit the trails to enjoy the colors from foliage and flowers alike! Photo: TatiyPedro3. Geocaching EventsThe shoulder season hosts two awesome geocaching events (and souvenir moments!): GIFF (Geocaching International Film Fest) in November and CITO (Cache In Trash Out) in April and September. GIFF happens just once per year where geocachers submit their geocaching films to a panel of judges in hopes of having their film shown at GIFF events around the world. CITO is an environmental initiative to preserve the natural beauty of cache-friendly spaces. While you should practice CITO every time you cache, you can earn a unique souvenir during the Spring and Fall CITO weeks each year. 4. Traveling can be more affordableSpring and autumn seasons tend to have less demand when it comes to traveling. Without the demand, the deals are often better. If you're a savvy traveler, keep the in-between seasons in mind for some savings on that trip you've always wanted. Looking for travel inspiration? Check out these “Greatest Hits” geocaches. 5. Have the best of both worldsThe most marvelous part of the shoulder season is that you can enjoy the best of both worlds. The changing weather means that you may have a sneak peek of summer sunshine in spring, or could indulge in ski or snowshoe caching in autumn! One rule for all activities, regardless of season is to be prepared! Bring layers, water, a pen, snacks, and share your plans when heading out for an adventure. Have fun, be safe, and cache on!
