  • There’s a vigorous discussion on Groundspeak Forums about how many caches a single person can find in 24 hours. One person claims to have found 12,845 in a 24-hour period. This we don’t believe.

  • It was a podcast by The Boston Globe back in 2005 that first got us interested in geocaching,but we’re guessing that the people who worked on that program are long gone. The Globe now writes about the phenomenon with the breathless interest of anyone discovering a new idea for the first time. It’s ironic that this was one of the first major media organizations to report on it!

  • An active discussion on Groundspeak Forums covers the question of how and whether to notify private property owners of caches that are placed near their property.

  • JOYity is a new game for users of the Android smartphone that has people running around looking for other players. It’s kind of like geocaching,only you’re finding humans. Has anyone tried this?

  • It’s not a full version,but for geocaching fans who like the extraordinary detail of Google Earth,this could be a must-have.

  • A geocaching newcomer discovers the game with his iPhone. Looks like he’s hooked!

  • The Canadian province of Novia Scotia has always been progressive when it comes to encouraging citizens to geocache,but now it has gone a step further,minting a series of geocoins for people to take with them or just photograph and admire. The prrovince is hoping this relatively inexpensive incentive will help drive tourism.

  • The Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Newark,Calif. is trying to get more pepole to venture out to the seven wildlife refuges in the Bay Area. It’s using a multi-stage geocache as an enticement and offering training in geocaching to local residents. It is illegal to geocache on the refuges because it is against the law to leave or take objects into the park. Instead,the refuge system will have about 10 coordinates throughout refuge locations in Fremont,San Jose and Mountain View with questions and clues that lead to a cache.

  • It looks like you can use EveryTrail to log your cache trips. The site has video and map mashups that can be used to document trails.

  • The town of Snow Hill,Md. plans to lay a munipical geocache,hoping it’ll draw tourism to the region.

  • An article in Time Out Chicago follows a group of geocachers on an expedition and gives some insight into the infectious appeal of the game.
