    I've been thinking about this a lot so I've decided to put it in my blog. Where else would I put my thoughts after all? So excuse my rambling as this has nothing to do with geocaching or food carts.Some people are afraid of the future. The idea that technology will take over our lives. We rely on technology, but have no clue how it works. Which brings me to the self driving car. Some people already claim that they could never trust such a thing as if us humans are somehow superior drivers.

Geocaching HQ received notification that public access to the ghost town of Monte Cristo in the mountains outside of Seattle was about to be closed. Hazardous mining-related waste has to be removed. It’s the same location where Geocaching founder, Jeremy Irish and his wife Samsy placed one of the oldest caches in the state, on November 19, 2000. We decided to use the last weekend before the closing date of April 15th, 2015 to retrieve the historic geocache. An unexpected snowfall upped the terrain rating of the…

  • Pizza, blazer games and even a geocache

    5 Apr 2015 | 10:27 am
    Last month was full of activity. I just didn't blog about it until now.I learned my favorite pizza cart opened a new location on the east side. It's about a mile from my house so I took the opportunity on a nice day and walked down there. Pulehu Pizza is great stuff if you are ever in Portland. The Blazers have been hit or miss for the month. I think they are coming back around.I also found one geocache. My first, and so far only, cache of the year.Hips
  • RIP Jerome Kersey

    Its a sad day in Rip City. Jerome Kersey one of my favorite all time Trail Blazers died today. If you asked me when I was 12 who my favorite player was... no doubt I would have named Kersey before even Clyde. I took this picture last year of Jerome presenting some season ticket holders near me with a piece of the 77 championship court.

    I thought about going geocaching today, but I didn't. I did go downtown while all the food carts were open. Its nice to be able to venture downtown on a weekday. I'm running a little low on new city adventures. I've eaten at a lot of food carts... leaving me just whats new and a few that aren't really my kind of thing. I've been thinking about going on one of the guided walking tours of the city. Maybe even get a book of attractions. That will give me some things to do for a while.Besides that I didn't do much today. I thought the history channel might have some shows on about the Presidents,…

    Not much happening so far 1/12 of the way through 2015. I've ate at a few food carts since its been unusually nice lately. Only one of them was new though. The blazers haven't been doing so hot, but I hope this is just a little midseason slump.Haven't been geocaching any. I just haven't had much desire for it yet.I'm looking forward to the Super Bowl tomorrow. Hope the Seahawks come to play this one.Here is a picture from last weekend... lunch from my favorite food cart

    If you have geocached for any amount of time you run across this scenario. Don't find too many doggies in a tree.You park your car and get everything ready for a hopefully fun geocache find. After checking your GPS you are informed that ground zero for the geocache is 125 feet in THAT direction. No problem until you notice that the nearby sound of a lawn mower is actually a muggle cutting the grass in the same area as the geocache hide. Well shucks, now what? This was my choice for my lunchtime geocache and I wouldn't have time to go looking for another find so I decided to and scope out the…

A winner has been chosen, but first, let’s take a look at the nominees.   Schlurie is famous in Rheinland-Pfalz for creating fun and inspiring geocache hides. His particular specialty is birdhouse caches, which have generated a lot of “WOW” moments for geocachers over the years.

    After a good few years of not cycling, we decided that this year it was time to hop back on to our bikes and find some cycling caches! So this Saturday we headed off to do the CBN (Chelmsford Blackwater Navigation) Cycle Route series. This was an extension to the original CBN series along the canal that we had walked in 2011 meaning that we still had caches CBN 113 to CBN 141 left to find.

  • Caching around Wimpole Estate

    12 Apr 2015 | 5:36 am
    We’ve had a rather quiet year of Geocaching so far. Mainly due to being so busy organising exciting Mega Essex things, but also because of the bad weather. With the weather brightening up and sunshine in the sky we had a few really enjoyable trips out grabbing some locally placed caches. Wimpole Estate is a beautiful area owned by the national trust with Wimpole Hall inside. You have to pay to enter the hall, however, the rest of the estate is free to walk around and the National Trust have encouraged Geocaching there by hiding their own caches in the grounds. We’d enjoyed quite a…

    2014 has been a fantastic year of caching.

It’s been really hard this year settling for a top 10, so much so that I have a top 11 (Plus some that need mentioning that didn’t make the list!). 2013 was a great year for fantastic adventures, but I think 2014 just about tops it! 11 – Ten countries in a day challenge Ten countries in a day – Beautiful Austria!Not only was this one a…

    It was the end of October and this could only mean one thing: Time for the Annual Halloween Mega Event. We had visited for the 2013 event and the 2012 event and had enjoyed them a lot. This year, due to difficulties with the venue, the Mega was held outside in a marquee. As we were having such a warm October this didn’t make too much of a difference and the committee did so well to reorganise it at the last minute and keep it together. The event was held at Wakeley Woods with a day caching and night caching series put out for the event. The day caches included 10 lab caches as well,…

    I’m sure that most cachers have a “must do” list of caches that they would love to visit. Ever since I spotted it, the ‘Banwell Bonecaves’ earthcache (GC3M60D) had been on mine. This earthcache was placed at a very unique spot: A cave full of animal bones which had been excavated and placed on display in the 1800’s by The Bishop of Bath and Wells. He claimed that the bones were proof of Noah’s flood and placed them on display as a warning to those who disobeyed God! The bone caves are made all that more special by the fact that they aren’t…
