  • Rooster, thanks for the good times

    blazerfan's geocaching adventures
    17 Oct 2014 | 10:51 pm
    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…

    One brave geocacher finds MEGA HERTZ.

      When CarpeCrew and #36 set out in search of GC3CZ72, they weren’t expecting to find anything. The cache was placed in February of 2012, on National Forest land just northwest of Colorado Springs. 13 finds and four months later, the Waldo Canyon Fire tore through the region. It was one of the most destructive fires in the state’s history. There was little to indicate that the cache had survived—no finds, no DNFs, no comment from the cache owner. Two years later, a forest road near where the cache was placed was reopened, and CarpeCrew and #36, saw their chance to…

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 However, a few weeks later, I visited the geocache’s page to gather some info only to find that it had been archived!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…
