You can find geocaching tools for most phone carriers and I am familiar with the iPhone and Blackberry versions (see blog post). I am less familiar with the Nokia phone and its Ovi store for apps until a fellow geocacher (Chico Valdez) reached out and mentioned he was creating a Geocaching app.
I just found out some sad news. The geocaching statistics dashboard that I have been using for 2 years has recently closed down. “It’s Not about the Numbers” was turned off in June 2010 as Dave, the fearless leader had to focus his time and energy on other things – like family and his job. [...]
I love geocaching and one thing for me is about the numbers! Yes, I admit it, it’s nice to see a BIG number when you log in and see how many you have found, and to compare yourself to others. But it’s also not just about the Numbers.
So how can you find what your geocaching statistics are? [...]
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 [...]
We are getting close to 1,000 geocaches! This sounds like a lot until you meet other geocachers and you see how many are over 1,000 and then 5,000 and with the top San Diego geocachers Kwvers at 12,000! Amazing!
I also just completed a geocache series about the Top 40 cachers in San Diego and it [...]
When I started geocaching 2 years ago, I started to hear lots of new terminology and did not know what any of it was. I’d read the logs that people wrote when they found a cache and would scratch my head and wonder.
So I thought I’d pull together a geocaching glossary with a few terms [...]
I like to take photos of my geocaching adventures. I usually upload them to Google Picasa photo albums. I found this feature they added to the Picasa tool on my computer to create a collage of photos from a folder and thought I’d add it to my geocaching tools I use and share in my geocache blog.
My life has got pretty crazy busy lately – so making time to geocache is not as easy as it used to be. So instead of me taking the time to create query, download a geocache file and download to my Garmin unit…I use my iPhone instead.
This geocache blog entry is a quick lovers guide [...]
This geocache blog post is about a review of 3 common types of units to use to find geocaches – Garmin, Blackberry, and iPhone and which one is the best geocaching GPS for you. In the past few weeks I’ve used each of these units to find geocaches and am providing my geocacher review on them.
