  • Lab Caches and I

    geocass
    29 Jan 2014 | 6:51 am
    A while ago Geocaching mentioned their new “Lab caches” idea. A lab cache is a new cache type that Groundspeak announced in August.

The special thing about Lab Caches is that you must find a code in order to mark the cache as found like with Wherigo completion codes. I do like the idea of having a code in order to log a cache as it’s a good verification that you did indeed find it. Since the announcement there have been a few lab caches and it…

We did, however, have some brilliant caching moments and some awesome adventures in 2013… 10 – NineSquared (Cumbria) The Squeeze Back in 2011 we worked hard to complete our d/t matrix only to have someone change one of the difficulties for a cache that we found and shoot a big hole in it!!!
