    I had a meeting to attend in Salem and on the way back I stopped at a rest area. It was a nice day and I wasn't in a hurry to get back so I looked at my phone and there were four caches in the area. I found 3 pretty easy the 4th had muggles with dogs so I skipped it.TWIGMEISTER's I-5 Northbound TB ReststopPentacacheRoad Rage #9

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, summer is here and visiting a tropical location sounds quite nice. If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, you’re in the midst of winter and finding a geocache in a place like the Bahamas…

  • Vacation Days 6-7

    8 Jun 2015 | 7:36 pm
    Vacation day 6 was a rehash of other days. Driving back up the cost to Lincoln City and then out to McMinnville. We stopped a few times including an extended stop at Spirit Mountain Casino. The extended stop was for the buffet. We took our time to McMinnville, but everyone was tired and we didn't end up doing much.Day 7 we had planned to go to the air museum, but the price combined with a lack of interest by some parties led us just to go on back to Portland. We used the extra time to drive to the gorge and see Multnomah Falls and the Vista House. Later in the day we went downtown Portland…

    7 Jun 2015 | 4:48 pm
    Day 5's travel was from Newport down to Lakeside and back up to Florence. One of the stops was at Sea Lion Caves. I have been in the gift shop many times but I have never been down in the cave. So this time I made the trip. Only one sea lion in there, but it was still cool to see.I found one geocache when we stopped for pizza.Up, Up and Away

    7 Jun 2015 | 9:11 am
    Day 4 we traveled from Tillamook to Newport taking in some of the sites along the way. I stopped at a store in Lincoln City called Prehistoric which was full of cool fossils. I splurged a bit and bought a nice polished slice of a mammoth tooth (see bottom picture)  I didn't find any geocaches on the day
  • Vacation Day 3 (a bit delayed)

    5 Jun 2015 | 6:20 pm
    I was having trouble with the phone app and making blog posts. More or less the app sucks at adding pics and links. So I'll post the remaining days one at a time.Day 3 we continued down the coast to Tillamook. While there we sampled some cheese and made a few stops along the coast such as to see the light house at Cape Meares.Found 2 caches on the day when my phone had signal. I took my GPS but didn't load it with caches. Just too many of them and how do I pick what to load?Say Cheese!Picea Sitchensis Octopoda

In North Carolina the temps have been pushing 100 for a couple of weeks with the heat index around 110.  Nothing like air you can chew but it did not deter getting our first of the Geocaching Road Trip series.This particular task involved finding a geocache with 10 or more favorite points. The one of which we chose had close to twenty and it was so good both Amy and I added ours as well.You can see in the photograph how humid and hot it was while we were geocaching. Needless to say it…

    In May we headed to Germany for the Project Gutenburg Giga event. We were staying in Saarburg, Germany which is just on the outskirts of Luxembourg and ended up doing a fair bit of geocaching in Luxembourg instead of Germany because it was such a beautiful place. Definitely under rated! We found some fantastic caches and locations that I thought definitely needed to be shared… Larochette We headed to Larochette to pick up the Moai and Verluerekascht virtual caches, however, it was such a pretty town that we ended up making a day of our visit.

    In April we headed to the Peak District in search of some quality geocaches. Our last proper visit to the peaks was four years ago in an attempt to fill in some holes in our difficulty and terrain matrix (You can read about that adventure here and here). Since then I’d accumulated quite a list of caches that looked great in that area and when we decided to head back again it was a good opportunity to visit them. We were staying near Glossop in the high peaks so decided to head up early via Dove Dale, a renowned beauty spot along the river Dove, in the south of the Peak District. Our…

Although it was mainly meant to be a general, fun weekend away with our friends, as we were all Geocachers it would have been rude not to do some caching as well!
