Geocaching Road Trip 2015

14 08 2015

Seven a.m. and I made a slight detour from my route to work. The mystery En bild säger mer än 1000 ord #6 was solved a couple of weeks ago. There was no checker so there was some anticipation as I reached GZ as to whether I had the right place or not. My heart sunk as I approached the huge pine – no, not another Gluggfan tree climbing cache. Then I remembered that the T rating was just 2.0 so I relaxed and yes, there was the regular size container. A quick log on line to stake claim to the fifth and sixth Geocaching Road trip 2015 souvenirs. What would be my placing?

Got to work only to find that the geocaching app runs on Seattle time and had logged the cache as being found on 13/8. So my revised log with the corrected time arrived more than an hour later than intended and I was #939 of #942 (when I took the screen shot) to have gained all the souvenirs. So that was this years august caching fun over ans done with and now it’s back to my usual caching activities.

My targets for 2015

22 12 2014

The year isn’t over yet so I am still hunting caches albeit at a slower pace. What I am doing is preparing for 2015 where of course I have decided that I need to set new targets. They are summarised below, and what I am trying to do now is related to target No 7. I don’t want to get to December 2015 and find it’s a really tough cold and snow rich winter, so it’s better to hunt for caches now as it is still virtually snow free here in Gästrikland. All being well I will end up with just one date to fill in December.

1. Find caches in all counties in Sweden
2. Find caches in 10 new boroughs of Sweden
3. Find caches in at least 3 more countries.
4. Find at least 10 more earthcaches
5. Place at least 3 new caches with different D/T ratings or types
6. Find puzzle caches to complete the A-Z, 0-9 owner challenge.
7. Complete the second round of the dates of the year challenge.
8. Complete the D/T matrix for puzzle caches.

I need to find a cache on each of the higlighted dates!

Apart from that the targets are probably not too challenging except for No 6 and that’s just because there are not so many cachers with names starting with numerals!

So how did I do in 2014? Well, the year is not yet over so it will be a couple of weeks before I know.

3000 finds

17 04 2012

If I had planned things a little better I may have been able to have achieved my 3000th find on my nine year caching anniversay. I’m not that well organised. 😦 Anyway, on Sunday afternoon I had some time to spare and decided to replace the wet or full logbooks in some of my caches in the Tierp area. Once that was done I considered turning round and driving home, but realised I was half way to Sala where there are plenty of caches. No sooner thought than done.
I still hadn’t really expected to get to #3000 but as the numbers added up I knew I could do it. My cache find #2000 was Korset (not the most awe inspiring location for a cache) so I decided that having had the solution to Motståndsrörelsen (D5/T2) in hand for years I should aim to get that as cache #3000.

Success! Find #3000
