What kind of a geocache would Santa hide? A webcam with a link to the North Pole? A puzzle that would keep you busy all day on Christmas? Well I found out what Santa and His Elves would hide in this local geocache.
What else is a better match for Christmas than Geocaching?
Christmas is a great time of year to get out and geocache. You often are travelling and visiting family – so you can find geocaches in new places. You can share it with family and friends and introduce them to this treasure hunting fun. And you can work off a bit of the festive food through walking, hiking, or biking to find the geocache.
Last year I saw a geocache pop up on my local area pocket query called “Christmas Card Lane” and it was only available for ~3 weeks around Christmas. By the time I got around to go and find it, it was no longer available. Darn! Santa has other work to do during the year, so I understand he can’t commit to keeping this up all year.
So I’ve been waiting all year for this geocache to pop up again. It came at the same time a neighbour told us about a local street that decorates their neighborhood and all the locals go and walk or drive through the area. I searched my geocache query and found the geocache I’d been waiting for within this neighborhood. It was meant to be!
Did you see who hid the geocache? It was Santa and His Elves! How exciting that he maintains a residence here in San Diego, California.
We drove down the street and admired the neighborhood, the locals have put a giant “Christmas Card” on each front garden with a different theme. Some have Harry Potter or Winnie the Pooh or The geocache was located in a bush in front of Wallace & Gromit….that’s me in front of Santa’s geocache.
I didn’t see Santa at the house – he was probably very busy delivering gifts to people across the world. Merry Christmas to All!
