Aloha from Hawaii! — Honu Beach Cache (GC102CV) — Geocache der Woche (engl.)

21. Januar 2016 // 0 Kommentare

Geocache Name: Honu Beach Cache (GC102CV) — by GeoGerms Cache, Surf, Sand Location: Haleiwa on the island of Oahu, Hawaii state, USAN 21° 37.123 W 158° 05.122 Difficulty/Terrain Rating: D2.5 / T1.5 Why this is Geocache of the Week: This geocache is located on Oahu's North Shore at Laniakea Beach, a well know surf spot with the swells are big. The beach is beyond beautiful, and the geocache usually has a good number of trackables inside that have traveled from near and far since Hawaii is a mecca for international tourists and geocachers. But the magical part of this geocaching experience is the high likelihood of encountering a green sea turtle, or “honu” as they are known in Hawaii. The turtles often come to the shore to feed on seaweed growing on the rocks, or since they are cold-blooded, will come onto the beach to warm themselves in the sun. You'll be able to get close, but make sure you give them plenty of space. Hawaiian green sea turtles are federally protected, and it's illegal and harmful to touch or get close to them. They do not lay eggs until they are 25 to 30 years old, and when the eggs finally hatch, only 1 in 1,000 will mature completely to adulthood. Encountering a honu is considered “good mana”, or good energy, by Hawaiians. If you see a honu, will you chances of finding this geocache increase? What geocachers have to say: “We loved this place. We saw a number of sea turtles coming up to the shore. Many people were snorkeling to see the turtles better. If it was not for this cache, we probably would never have seen this beach.” –SP4FUN “Wow! What a great view at this cache site. Wes-rx and I wanted to make it up to Turtle Beach and discover the north shore of Oahu, and we were not disappointed. Lots of turtles just a few feet out in the water, so plenty of excitement to distract the muggles. TFTC!” –pharmanimal2016 “What a beautiful place for a geocache! We arrived at a fortunate time. There were 2 sea turtles sunning on the beach and at least 2 more out in the surf. Kudos to the volunteers who care for the area and keep us people from disturbing the turtles.” –MuStash What the Cache Owner has to say: We've contacted the cache owner, GeoGerms, to let him know his geocache is being featured as Geocache of the Week. He was very excited, but also busy. He is helping with the dengue virus outbreak on the Big Island of Hawaii. He's an avid geocacher with over 4,700 finds, but hasn't had time to geocache since fall of 2015. His profile states, “GeoGerms is a tad busy right now helping with the dengue virus outbreak currently happening on the Big Island. Sorry about the lapse in cache maintenance and lack of timely responses to your emails. Hope to be back fully caching soon!” We wish everyone a speedy recovery, and hope you're back out enjoying your hobby soon, too. Photos: The real name for this beach is Laniakea Beach Turtle TB, meet Turtle This is a great geocaching experience for kids of all ages Green sea turtles are federally protected so make sure to stay at least 10 feet away from them Aloha from Hula Girl TB! It's considered good “mana” or good energy to encounter a honu Going back out to the ocean Wait! Come back! Will you be lucky enough to find the cache and see the turtles?

ENIGMA (GC427TF) — Geocache der Woche (engl.)

19. Dezember 2015 // 0 Kommentare

Geocache Name: ENIGMA (GC427TF) — by The Seeker League Location: North Canton, Ohio, USA N 40° 52.645 W 081° 24.875 Difficulty/Terrain Rating: D4.5/T1.5 Why this is Geocache of the Week: Enigma is pure geocaching entertainment. It's the kind of cache that you'll walk away from smiling, even if you DNF. If you do manage to locate the famed yellow logbook, you'll walk away shouting with laughter. See for yourself. Here's a video provided by the cache owner, The Seeker League. What geocachers have to say about it: “Woo hoo!!! Been wanting to get this but kept putting it off cause of the stigma with it!!! But decided we should give it a try since it may be disabled soon. Otter9 joined us and we spent almost an hour but we FOUND IT!!!! So happy! Thanks for all the time you took to put this together! It lives up to its reputation!” –MR DR “Wow what a cache! A dozen of us teamed up to work this puzzle. Took over an hour before we finally had the yellow golden ticket log in hand!” –Heidi & Zeke Jones “Awesome! Messed around with the whole contraption and all the areas. Dropped a trackable that needs to get moving in a race! After looking everywhere ( and making a few trips back to the car for hats, gloves, and warmer coats), we started to think our way through the device. Mommy Scout started dancing around and singing when her hand retrieved the yellow log! Very exciting moment for me. (Yes, I need to get a life, huh?) Thanks for the fun cache. Took us about 20 minutes. Gets a favorite for sure! TFTC!” –ThorScouts What the Cache Owner, The Seeker League, has to say about it: Where did the idea for this sort of large, mechanical multi-part field puzzle cache?“After 3 years of looking for a place to put it, I asked my husband Iron Horse to build a kinetic art sculpture to use as camouflage for this container. Over the next year and hundreds of hours, all the loose pieces of metal and machinery within our garage found its way into his hands and onto ENIGMA.” The cache itself looks fairly complicated — did you have a pretty clear idea of what it would look like before you started construction, or was it sort of a “flying by the seat of your pants” kind of thing?“There was no plan, no idea what it would look like at the end. ENIGMA evolved into 500 cubic feet of contraptions, containers and fun!” What's been your reaction to all the wonderful logs by people who've found your cache?“Reading the logs about our creation are very enjoyable. Watching the videos from the area have given us even more hours of entertainment, as we never know what is going to be said or what reaction cachers are going to have while doing ENIGMA. Never a dull moment that's for sure! Cachers are warned that at ENIGMA you might just be on camera!” What's your favorite creative geocache hide?“We had the honor of doing some spectacular caches while attending our 4th GeoWoodstock at XIII in Boonsboro, Maryland 2015. One of our favorite caches is GC4W6QX ‘GBC 3 – Mechanical Drawing 101' by WVTim in Martinsburg, WV. His caches are all so creative it was difficult to choose just one favorite.” Is there anything else you would like to say to the Geocaching community?“Remember Geocachers, getting lost is more than half the fun. We have lived some of our greatest moments while being lost. Turn off interstates on your GPS unit, take the long back roads and enjoy life. See you on the trail.” Photos: 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.

Kuş Evi / Bird House (GC4W8G4) — Geocache der Woche (engl.!)

10. Dezember 2015 // 0 Kommentare

Geocache Name: Left: http://bit.ly/1NU6qwr | Right: http://bit.ly/1jMLHwn Kuş Evi / Bird House (GC4W8G4) — by haoral Location: Üsküdar, TurkeyN 41° 02.075 E 029° 01.926 Difficulty/Terrain Rating: D3.5/T3.5 Why this is Geocache of the Week: This week, we're recognizing a creative geocache in a country that just got its first souvenir: Turkey! Birdhouses, or Kuş Evleri in Turkish, are literally built into much of the Ottoman architecture in Istanbul and other cities in Turkey. This geocache was placed in tribute to those birdhouses. “Kuş Evi / Bird House” is a tree-climbing cache, the first of its kind in Turkey, in fact. Finding it qualifies you to add a special banner to your profile. Starting this week, you'll also earn the brand-new Turkey souvenir for finding this, or any other geocache, in Turkey. What geocachers have to say about it: “This cache was my main target this afternoon: I like tree-climbing and I like banners . This one combined both. At least after I had found it! There were quite a few people around, thus I had to look carefully. After a looooong while I found a short trail and the tree. Getting to the cache was no problem but then there was the locking system that needed to be overcome. It wasn't too difficult but something new to me! I really liked it! This whole cache is definitely worth a favourite point! Greetings to the owner! TFTC!” –kinderarzt “I wanted this one to be my 300. cache, so i saved itaccordingly during our Kuzguncuk tour. I have bern listening to the praises of this cache for months. I found some bird house caches in Europe before but i encounter one with a puzzle for the first time. Initially, my wife went up the tree. But when she had some difficulties with opening the lock, we switched places. I also could not open it immediately. The numbers must be aligned precisely to open it. I didn't have a magnet with me but a swiss army knife. The rest eas not so difficult. And for sure, it deserves a fav point.” –blastrula What the Cache Owner has to say about it: Tell us a little bit about why you decided to hide this cache?“There were not many handcrafted caches in Turkey or Istanbul. I saw a lot of nice, maker caches in the web and want to make one myself. It should be not to difficult but should have some field puzzle elements in it. And it should be a example of handcrafted caches for the growing community in Istanbul.” There don't seem to be many tree caches in Turkey. Do you know if yours was the first?“I am very sure it is. It is a tree cache where searchers have not to use technical equipment, but have to climb nearly 3 meters high. Today there are more caches in Turkey like this.” Do you think this cache requires more maintenance that your other geocaches?“No the place is more secure than the other caches in the city. Also it is chained to the tree, so Muggles are less a problem.” Do you have anything in particular you'd like to say to the geocaching community?“I produced this and some other caches in Istanbul to show the community that nice crafted caches are more fun than simple ones.” Photos: The making of the cache. Intrepid geocachers in an attempt to disguise themselves as monkeys. The puzzle box that contains the cache. The cache itself. The littlest geocachers may need some help finding this one.
