    Yesterday we lost a great old time geocacher, Nick Carr aka Rooster.I once called him the incredible shrinking Rooster because he was a little lighter every time you'd see him. Here is a story about how he lost 180 pounds.One time back in 2004 when I was visiting Klamath Falls he took me around to 53 caches. This was in the days before power trails. We really cleaned up the town. I didn't need a GPS because Rooster remembered where all the caches were.He gave up geocaching a few years ago, but he had a lot of hobbies like fishing and falconry. He was a great person to hang out with and will…

    GeoCache: I'm NOT Obsessed... Right? HeadHardHat's Geocaching Insights
    Andrew Smith
    21 Oct 2014 | 10:55 am
    If  you are a geocacher you most likely knew that October 12th was International Earth Cache Day 2014. Where if you wanted to receive a digital customized souvenir you needed to go out and find yourself an Earth Geocache. Myself and wife Amy, The Headhardhatress had a fantastic time exploring an area we never would have known it was there unless looking for this geocache.In the geocaching world an Earth Cache is a certain type of geocache that does not include a physical container to find. Instead you find a place that usually has some sort of geological significance to it. In our case…

    Geocache Name: Deja Vu? (GC5F41G) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 2.5/1.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: When I first saw this geocache in a post on /r/geocaching, I knew it had to be a Geocache of the Week. The work and creativity that went into it was incredible, not to mention, it had already won an award during a local event. However, a few weeks later, I visited the geocache’s page to gather some info only to find that it had been archived! Drats! Luckily, it was only to change to its current location. Phew! The idea for this geocache is pretty ingenious and creates a great…

    This month geocaching.com is running a 7 Souvenirs of August promotion. You get a souvenir for finding a traditional, mystery, multi, CITO/Earthcache, event, and virtual or other odd type. Plus one for getting all six of these types. So far I have one for this cache.Oakridge GeoTour #31 - Shadow BayFound this one on my usual camping trip to Waldo Lake.

    Mayan Ruins “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine  Whenever you get the chance to travel somewhere new, do it. If you add geocaching to the mix, trips become even more adventurous and rewarding. I had the opportunity to travel to Central America  and explore two fascinating and beautiful countries: Belize and Guatemala. Along the way, I geocached underwater, through a rainforest and next to a smoking active volcano.  Here are six amazing geocaches that I found and believe all geocachers should add to their bucket list.

It never does. If you don’t share that dry sandwich, and unfulfilling old piece of fruit with your keyboard, it’s going to be alright. In fact, it probably needs a break and so do you, enter: Geocaching. School is back in session, the weather is still begging you to get outside and geocache. Much like the recess bell, lunchtime at the office is a much anticipated moment of our day.

First, you have to come up with a clever idea. Then you have to plan, buy supplies and actually put them together—not to mention troubleshoot if there are problems. This geocache goes a step further by not only being a clever puzzle, but also a piece of art. The geocache owner placed this geocache on his own property and says that the neighbors just think…
