GeoWoodstock VI ActivitiesMar 12, 2008

We just received the recent newsletter from the GeoWoodstock VI staff outlining the planned activities for the event. Here is the excerpt:

“The GeoWoodstock staff has been busy planning an exciting weekend of activities for the thousands of attendees at the world’s largest geocaching-related event. To start things off, there is a Friday afternoon Meet & Greet (cache page to be published soon) followed by an organized night-caching run. At the Meet & Greet you’ll be able to check in and pick up your registration packet, including geocoins and apparel. Hamburgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers will be available fresh off the grill for purchase at a nominal cost.

On Saturday the festivities run from 9am to 7pm and will include Geocoin Poker, Geocoin Bunco, gold panning demonstrations, live music, raffles, a live auction, a geocache container packing contest, GPS and navigational classes, a reviewer discussion, Hamburger Farm Tours, a petting zoo, giant slides, a magician, marble panning, an ammo can painting contest, a train, a Name That Geocacher game, and a Geocacher Bingo game. And if that list isn’t long enough, we’re working on more activities that are yet to be finalized. There will be more than a dozen vendors selling everything geocaching and then some. Lunch and snacks will be available for purchase throughout the day. To top it all off, we’ll be serving a fabulous free dinner starting at 4pm to those people who have preregistered.

On Sunday we have planned several organized geocache runs. These include a bicycle run along the American River Bike Trail, and a kayak run on Lake Natomas. We’re also putting together several bookmark lists of geocaches to target different geocache styles.”

It sounds like it’s going to be a great, though very busy, weekend!

Bookcrossing And GeocachingFeb 08, 2008

Hey, we just stumbled across a type of cache that we were not aware of before, and it combines another one of our passions – books!

These ‘book caches’ combine the concept of ‘bookcrossing’ (the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise) with Geocaching. It’s the ultimate book exchange!

The concept is simple – take a book, leave a book. A few of the book caches are themed and you should only exchange like books. As well, ensure that the books are protected from the elements.

Intro To Geocaching VideoNov 20, 2007

While going through our bookmarks we came across this great video introduction to Geocaching by Sue from Team-Tiki that we would like to share with you today. Filmed as a Geocaching tutorial it features a hunt for “Koz’s Kliffside Kache” in the Hemlock Overlook of Clifton, Virginia. Combining instruction, humor and a great soundtrack it gives an excellent overview of a Geocaching hunt.

Although this was filmed almost a year ago it is a timeless piece that both experienced Geocachers and those new to the sport can identify with. So much so that we have added ‘Run Through The Jungle’ by Creedence Clearwater Revival to our iPod Cache Mix. :)

Keep on cachin’!

The Geo-Post OfficeNov 13, 2007

Here’s a great way to keep in touch with your fellow Geocachers – The Geo-Post Office! This type of cache has been around since the spring of 2006 and the idea is to move postcards between Geo-Post Offices until they reach their destination. It sounds like a cool, fun way to exchange postcards between you and your Geocaching friends.

Geo-Post Office caches are specifically placed with the purpose to hold postcards. Each postcard is to have a short message and a forwarding address on it. The address is to include the name of the Geocacher that you are trying to send the postcard to, their home city, and a destination cache. Here’s an example:
