08/31/08 – This Week In Geocaching

Posted in In The News on Aug 31, 2008

There are planned upgrades for the Ragged Mountain Recreation Area in the
Camden, Maine area that include Geocaching. It’s certainly nice to see our sport mentioned along with hiking, mountain biking, golf, canoeing, tennis and swimming. You can read more here.

At the time of writing The ‘Eh’ Team have almost completed their 12 State 5 Day tour with last tally at 120 caches! They started on Aug. 27th and visited Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and they finish up today. You can follow their adventure here.

Apparently, Genesee County in Michigan charges a $10. fee for hiding Geocaches on their park property. The requirement for a permit came into being about three years ago to monitor off trail activities. The fee is also required for metal detecting. Geocachers Karin Tosh, John O’Brien and David Keith speak on the subject here.

Wow! There were also quite a few other Geocachers in the news this week!

The Standard Freeholder from Cornwall, Ontario has an article about John Van Baal, aka Dutchmaster, here.

Steve Hall and Dave Andrews from BC, Canada are featured in an article here.

David Rolan, Ed Schraut and the Scoggins family from the Phoenix, Arizona area are featured here.

And finally, Brian Penza from Riderwood, Maryland is feature in this article from The Observer.

And that’s the way we saw this week in Geocaching! Seriously, these were a few interesting Geocaching related news articles that we came across this week that we wanted to share.

Oh, btw, you can always find more weekly Geocaching news here and here.

Keep on cachin’!

    I agree with hick — 10 bucks for a permit? That’s nuts. A nice roundup of what’s going on in the geocaching world again!
