This geocache blog post adds to the series of revealing the mysteries of geocache hides. Others include the lamp post geocache hide and the Ammo Box.
This post focuses on The Sprinkler. Yes, those little black sprinklers that you see all over lawns and parks and fields can actually be geocaches. So you have to build [...]
When you don’t know what you are looking for, the idea of finding “something somewhere” can be a little intimidating….but once you get the hang of a few types of geocache hides and geocache containers, then it becomes much easier. We call this getting you “geosense” (could we be as brash as to call it [...]
I just completed the latest update to my geocaching statistics using a new geocaching tool called “My Geocaching Profile”. At this point I saw that I have a big gap in the hard terrain and hard difficulty area….this is the highlighted section below.
So what does it take to get a difficult geocache? I recently got a [...]
One of the great things I love about geocaching is that there is a central website that is FREE (yes, we like free) and where you can see the adventures of other geocachers. It’s almost like a geocaching tool that can be used. Geocachers can post photos, profiles, stories about who they are and what [...]

Love to showcase some of the common geocache hides that are used by geocachers but that a geocache muggle would never think that there is a secret treasure to be found.
This is [...]
This geocache blog post adds to the series of revealing the mysteries of geocache hides and showcasing the more unusual or surprising geocache hides.
There is a geocache at this photo location – but the unusual aspect is the reason for the hide – this large Saguaro cactus is actually a cell phone tower. I had [...]
uuurgh, I do love geocaching, but the smallest hide of all “the nano“ is my nightmare. this geocache blog entry shows what is looks like (if you can see it!) It is always really hard to find (check out the size of this thing in the photo…it’s the little black dot at the edge of [...]
When I started geocaching I did not have “geosense” – which is the understanding of how and the types of hides that people do with their geocaches.
So I would often walk by somewhere and go “it’s not here!” and then find that it really was. After I started getting my “geosense” I could start to [...]
This geocache blog post adds to the series of revealing the mysteries of geocache hides. The use of real money is unusual as it causes the geocacher to have to make a decision to spend it or re-hide it.
Usually you can find money if you are a FTF (First To Find). But I knew I [...]
When I tell people about geocaching, many ask “what’s hidden in a geocache” so I thought I’d share a picture of an example or two in this geocache blog post. These are caches that I’ve just hidden (my first hides – exciting!).
Usually you find:
The geocache container (might seem obvious, but some are very clever!)
A log [...]
