Geocaching Daily 08/11/2008

  • A reporter for the Lexington (Neb.) Clipper-Herald goes on his first geocaching excursion and describes the experience. His instincts told him to be skeptical,but there was something addictive about the experience:

    “The first [cache] was an ammo can hidden in a hollow of the trunk of a fallen tree. Inside the can was a plastic whistle,a toy from a McDonald’s Happy Meal,a small plastic card calendar and a shot glass from Reno. There was a small notebook and a disposable camera inside the ammo can as well.

    “I picked up the whistle and blew into it. Loudly. ‘What a bunch of junk,’ I announced. The truth was,I knew I was hooked.”


  • PPL Electric Utilities Corp.,a subsidiary of PPL Corp. that provides electricity delivery services to about 1.4 million customers in Pennsylvania,has placed several geocaches in environmental preserves it operates. The promotion is aimed at lifting awareness about the utility’s environmental priorities.


  • The Brunswick Telegraph-Journal reports on a novel caching contest:“Geocaching for cash.! Complete a timed course around Irving Nature Park using your GPS unit to locate bundles of cash (OK,play money!) that will be used at an auction at the end of the event for some wonderful prizes. Meet at the Information Kiosk at noon,where there will be a short presentation on geocaching and you will pick up the cache co-ordinates and get a time stamp.”
