Yes, CITOs are successful anytime they occur in the respect that we as geocachers get a chance to give back to the community. In this case we did that cleaning up a state park soon after 4th of July. I could be calling this one successful because this is the first CITO, we have hosted a … Continue reading Our CITO was successful
We have all seen geocaching SWAG and various personalized items. They can take many forms from handmade tags to custom pens. There is really no limit to the SWAG you can get associated with your team name. The first time we had something made with our team name on it was when we designed a stamp. That … Continue reading Geocaching SWAG
Who is the best companion for geocaching? For me its Tom, or GeoTom, as he has now come to be known by the geocaching community. Why is Tom such a great partner? Well, he never has a scheduling conflict. He is always excited no matter how difficult the hike might be. He can even share … Continue reading Geocaching with GeoDogs

One of the greatest … Continue reading Travelcaching and events

That is more a personal preference than anything as we just don't do streaks. Regardless of our dislike of streaks this still looks like a great way to earn some souvenirs … Continue reading Road Trip 2015 – Fun With Favorites
Geocaching events are a great way to meet other geocachers. In my opinion, events enhance the game immensely. You can finally put a face to that geocaching handle - SnoopDog187. It also personalizes a game that is essentially played behind a computer and with GPS devices. We enjoy hosting events and are always looking for new ways … Continue reading How to rate geocaching events
In relation to my previous post, I have corresponded with a few geocachers today. We have come up with ways we can help each other improve our own games. How cool is that? I haven't been this excited in a while. Its also one of those head slap moments. My name is not Sisyphus so … Continue reading Bartering works in geocaching!
I have gotten to the point now where I've built more Wherigo cartridges than I would ever considering publishing. I have given some away and even deleted others. Then a thought came to me. We, as geocachers, are a group of people that have an inclination toward creativity and curiosity. Geocaching is a games that has … Continue reading Will build Wherigo cartridges for…
What is with the name of that event? Has Memfis finally lost his mind? You may have figured it out already but I am getting two new hips this summer. Knowing I would be unable to hike for quite a while, we somehow came up with the brilliant idea to tackle the Manitou Incline the … Continue reading GC5PHT9 Let’s Go For A Hike 8: No hippies allowed!
