Life as a Geocacher

Caching and Reviewing

This is made up of stories from my caching and my reviewing.  It is a collection of those along with comments and thoughts.  Photos, and maps of some adventures and lists of some of the oldest caches.

Scout Caches and Reviewing

I went with my family camping this last weekend to Maple Dell Scout camp.  I was there for July 4-7, enjoying the mountains and relaxing for a few days.  It was a good time except for one small detail, two small details actually.

I was trying to review caches.  Quite often it is a bit of work.  Checking for all the possible issues and looking for problems, and most of the time publishing them.  This was a holiday weekend, and cachers were out around the state placing caches wherever they could find them.  So I ended up looking at all the caches that were available on my little cell phone screen.  It was harder than I expected.  I have done 2-3.. or even a dozen.  But trying to go through 15-20 each day was a bit tricky.  I cannot really leave a note for people if there was a problem, so I just tried to list the ones that I could.  Sorry for those that waited until Wednesday for an answer.

I am shocked at the amount of caches that people are asking to be listed.  So many new players are appearing.  There are a lot of new people out to place caches, and so many are being listed.  If you are from the Vernal Area you are seeing a huge group of new listings appear.  Great series and trails are being worked on, and many creative and interesting caches are being listed. 

I headed up to do the scout caches around the camp.  I still have a number more to go.  You can see above that I have done a number but I still have a few others.  I normally avoid puzzle caches. (You can guess why).  These are relitivly easy puzzles so I have taken the time to get them done. 

Hopefully I will get up soon and do some more of them.  This has been my most enjoyable series so far.  I hiked about 3 miles this vacation to get a group of them. (about 10 I think).
