Laguna.sam's 1000th Geocache Found

This was the day. Today, the 1000th found for Laguna.sam was on the plan. After getting 3 quick traditionals before to count to the right number, Team rolliradler, Laguna.sam and myself went for a difficult and long Multi-Cache. D4.5 and T3.5 was appropriate for an anniversary cache round through the forest. It took us 8:20 hours and about 8.6 miles to get the final. And some of us, even got wet feet :). There was also a unexpected refreshment available, where I and the male part of team rolliradler got our drinks. Here is a short video and some impressions.

You had to blow into a tube. We expected that it's a kind of flute, but it wasn't. Instead, a marble popped out :) We scratched our head what this meant. After further examination we found the coordinates for the next stage engraved on the marble. Awesome idea.

Some stages were really tricky.

No, I'm not afraid of spiders...noooo.

Nice places and so much fun. Discussing the strategy.

   1000 Founds! Congratulations Laguna.sam!

And the photo of our group today.

Once again, congratulations to Laguna.sam for this nice anniversary. And thanks to team rolliradler for making this day a big success and putting so much fun in this.
And of course to the owner, who might recognize this, to give us all this joy and a cache worth for an anniversary. 
Happy Geocaching!

Sealess Tides

Here are some quick impressions about my little round  a week ago.

The best cache of that tour in a video.

Nice "log"

Spiders, spiders, spiders...and a cache-container

Under bridges or in traffic signs...there is always a hide

Dog Round Without a Dog

Here we go again. Last Sunday, Laguna.sam and I went for another small geocaching tour. With about 99° Fahrenheit, we didn't want to make an overly long caching day. But the worst was the drive to the coordinates. Traffic and the card didn't have air conditioning. It was extremely hot and the sun burned into the car showing no mercy.

At the beginning, we found some really "shitty" stations :). No I don't want to offend the owner, but take a look for yourself :)

Umm... you need to take this off.

After several stages we ended up at the final. It was awesome. Nice!


 Take a look at the very short video. There was something to hear, too.

 After that we went to the bonus for this multi. Yes, we are greedy. We stop fighting over the bone and decided "fastest gets more". Wait I'm vegan... but plastic is okay :).

And another short round was over. And then we drove back with the car. Did I mentioned it had no air conditioning? Ah, and the car had no air conditioning... really.
Happy Geocaching everyone!

At The Geocaching-Event "GCHN meets Genusscacher"

A nice locations, a pleasant Event, high visit from North Germany. No big affords needed for team rolliradler and laguna.sam to convince me to attend.


It was really nice, had a lot of good talks, and Android was involved, too :) What do you need more? Oh, lots of trackables of course. Everything was present. I enjoyed our round at the table with SpĆ¼rnasen XXL, laguna.sam, rolliradler, momolila and all the other kind cachers that I met there.
At the location, it was very nice with a great view. The Koenig-Ludwig-Biergarten even have some vegan food. Awesome.


 Team Rabbits with a special Travelbug. Awesome!


An honorable bear as a TB, I couldn't resist to take him with me. The ladies in front of the great view at the caching tour after the event.

After that nice event, we burned some calories with a little tour. Four nice caches in a great area near the event-location. Fun and laughter were assured.
Thanks to all for that nice day.

Have a good time and happy geocaching!

Some more Geocaching adventures

I'm a little behind with posting about the caching tours. So I give you some highlights, or interesting stuff from the latest walks.

With Bunny in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Is that the hideout for the cache? I don't know. Gave up, because I don't want to risk touching live wires. The construction had working lamps with high voltages and I was totally exposed.

The only really nice cache today. A Snow White Letterbox.

Why? Why do you want to place a cache here. It's on that sign in the middle of the road.

The caches in Ludwigsburg are kind of strange. At last the 10 I visited.

And in another area, Bunny and I found even more interesting caches. The earwigs are really out of control this summer. They are everywhere. I hope the owners take care of that. I already ha a totally screwed up cache that wasn't logable because of this.

Ha, a nicely made Buddha-cache. The earwigs are horrible this year. 

With Laguna.sam in Sausenheim, Germany and around that area. Visited another Letterbox, a TB-Hotel and an interesting cache at a small bridge. The last has this little plush cute dog inside. I had to take it with me.Take a look at the video I made from a great hideout.




 Another Letterbox. Fun with traffic signs. And what a cute "Schnuffel" Travelbug.

These were some caches. A short post about a Geocaching-Event on Saturday follows tomorrow.
Thanks for reading and as always, happy geocaching!

Impressions about the latest tours

Here are some impressions from my latest tours. From the first July weekend together with Laguna.sam, and from the following Wednesday.

Water in the woods? Not so easy.

Where is the coconut tree? Well here is a container dispenser.

Laguna.sam and I posing for the Earthcache.
Yummy, I nearly ate the cache container.

Okay, I'm not going to eat this one. Yuck. But Laguna.sam and I enjoyed the view.

And on Wednesday, I had some really nice views. It was an exhausting, little trail. Through the woods of Heidelberg, the city of the philosophers :)

Me at the rocks. No really, they city of the philosophers :).

That was worth the panorama shot.

Climbing there was quite exhaustive.
  
But the view was awesome.

That were some great experiences. Can't wait for the next trip.

A Walk With Strange Containers

I'm pretty much behind on reporting my trips. So, let's start with with this one I made last week.

No time to put the photos in the video as intended. Instead take a look at the photos here.

 From here it all started today. The weather was nice to me.

The opened cross. That was insane. You can't open it just like that.

A box in the tree: Easy. A box like the one on the left: Found quickly but then... how to open?

And old ice cellar and a really, really big table. I could have fun with those.

  The castle of Neckarhausen

Gave a Geokret back to freedom. A pirate coin. Let the plunder begin... hey don't take those words seriously. Arrrr!

I hope you enjoy the stuff. Soon I'll post more geocaching adventures. I already have the material :)
