Geocaching in New Zealand 2010 is now over

21 02 2010

I am back home in Sweden and the cold and snow continue unabated. Today, Sunday 21st February, I have just cleared my drive from 30cm of snow. Puh! I will not be doing so much physical geocaching in the next weeks as there are not too many that are easily reachable. More of my time will be spent going through my photos from New Zealand, looking through the results of my geocaching adventures there and making some inputs in this blog

As I was only on the South Island I didn’t roam too far in terms of distance. This is what it looked like based on having my home base in Christchurch.

Nearest cache found: Bright on Pier (Canterbury) GC1T8AD
Furthest cache found: 303,51 km, The Rock (Nelson/Marlborough) GCQQRW
Most Northerly cache found: S 40° 47.250, The Rock (Nelson/Marlborough) GCQQRW
Most Southerly cache found: S 43° 49.775, Kaitorete Spit (Canterbury) GC1JP02
Most Easterly cache found: E 174° 08.875, Wetlands Coffee Break (Nelson/Marlboro… GC1ZB51
Most Westerly cache found: E 172° 10.893, Three Roads (West Coast) GC1A80J
Cache centroid: S 42° 38.366 E 172° 51.174 Map

As you may guess the majority of the caches were at a relatively low difficulty and terrain level. I had originally planned to find some caches with higher terrain levels but for various reasons that did not happen.
