Creative caches

9 04 2014

I spent a long weekend in England visiting my brothers and their families. It’s been quite a time since I got over from Sweden but I finally made it. As there are thousands of caches to choose from some kind of filtering was needed in order to get a good geocaching experience for both them and for me. One family geocaches, the other doesn’t but willingly take me out to places of interest that I can combine with geocaching.

Half of Team “zelger”, the ones interested in geocaching, had proposed that we went for quality rather than quantity and arrived at roughly the same list of traditional caches with lots of favourite points that I did. I also noted that there were a few earthcaches and letterbox hybrids that I found interesting. For a number of reasons we settled on a Friday morning out with just one cacher’s caches on our list. They were all close to Wokingham and all had a good number of favourite points. The hider was “JJEF” and the caches were all innovative. Normally I don’t limit my caching in this way so today was a good exception. The caches are listed below in the order we did them but the photographs are mixed up. JJEF is quite happy with me showing them as they don’t point to each specific cache.

I can definitely say that this was an exceptionally good geocaching experience and would recommend these caches to anyone who is in the area. Our afternoon was quite different as the theme changed to letterbox hybrids.

Nope, try again. Not in this hole so where is it?

Pinball! Three of us had fast enough reactions to grab the cache as it popped up.

A neat way to keep little fingers out. A screw is needed to remove the block.
