Back to the Caching (take 2)

Whilst the Interrogation of fellow geocaching bloggers is a lot of fun, I am sure that regular readers to my blog are wondering if I have been doing any caching of my own lately. Well in the last couple of months it has been a bit thin on the ground due to a lot of family sickness, but fear not there are some geocaching blog entries in the pipeline. A couple of weeks ago just before I was struck down with the flu we did go on a pugwash adventure to aylesbury and that report should be coming soon. In addition, Sam and I are heading to my mum’s in Norfolk for a short break starting tomorrow and there is a plan for some caching there too. So stay tuned and in the meantime please do enjoy the Interrogations :)

Interrogating Mr. and Mrs.

Another great interrogation for you now and despite the title, I am not staging a remake of the rather cheesy 1970s gameshow that pitted husband against wife to see how well they knew each other. What I do have for you is a husband and wife caching team, which in itself isn’t so unusual, but in this case it seems that the blogging is sometimes shared as well, which is slightly rarer.

Mr and Mrs HG137 otherwise known as Graham and Helen hail from Sandhurst in Berkshire, UK. They set themselves a very specific goal back at the end of 2012… to average a cache a day for the next year and to blog about how they achieved it. Their blog is a blow by blow account of their geocaching antics up to and now beyond their original challenge. With plenty of photos accompanying the entries and a good sense of humour throughout, you will be putting this one on your follow list for sure. Go see how Mr. and Mrs HG137 worked as a team to answer the questions.

Interrogating Mr. Yuck!

Time for another interrogation now… did you know that over 20 caching bloggers have already taken the challenge?

Mr Yuck. is the rather bizarre caching name of Jim who lives and caches in the Buffalo / Niagra Falls regionin in America. Being quite an early adopter of caching, first hearing about it in 2003, he has lots of experiences to draw on. His blogging takes the form of being the resident blogger for opencaching.us, a position he has held since early 2014. Despite having cached for 11 years he confesses he has never yet managed to convert a muggle. Click on over and see how Mr Yuck held up under intterogation.

Drumroll for the Blog Roll

Almost as soon as I started geocaching back in June 2013 I started reading blogs about the adventures of others. I learned so much from some of these blogs, marvelled at the daring and determination of those that challenge themselves and have laughed a lot at the amusing and, sometimes, downright dumb situations they got themselves into – never catch me doing that :)

I found the process of discovering blogs quite tricky and have spent a lot of time, trawling through search engines, blogging sites and taking note of any blog URLs I have noticed on Facebook groups and forums. To make it a little easier for anyone wanting to explore the geocaching blogs that are out there I have developed a list that details as many of the active sites that I can find. This is by no means an exhaustive list and I welcome any suggestions of ones that I have overlooked. The blog Roll can be accessed from my blog at anytime by using the “Geocaching Blogs” link that appears in the banner. Additionally it can be found at http://washknight.wordpress.com/blogroll.

Thanks to all the geocaching bloggers out there for all their hard work in maintaining their sites, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Interrogations – Heading North

I’m heading North to bring you the next two interrogations. Admittedly one is the North of England and the other is somewhat latterally position to the west, but Canada is still North of me… honest!

Phil Lives not far from Leeds in the UK and caches as Fox 661L. His blog is a treasure trove of interesting and often funny articles about caching and his other interests. He has a quick and wicked sense of humour and this comes through in his blog entries, so click on over to his site and see how Phil got on under interrogation.

HurricaneLaurk lives and caches in Ottawa Canada and has been caching since 2013. His blog is an excellent account of his progression through the hobby of geocaching and gives him the chance to demonstrate his talent of photography. His caching also seems to end in interesting adventures including making an XXX rated discovery recently, breaking the odd bone and Oh, and he also has a trackable tatoo! So go check out how HurricaneLaurk met Washknight’s Interrogation challenge.

A fistful of Interrogations…

I must say the geocaching bloggers are wonderfully accomadating people and don’t mind being interrogated at all. For my double act today I present one from just a handful of miles down the road from me and one a considerably greater distance away across the pond.

Dave DeBaeremaeker is a name that you may be familiar with as he has featured on many podcasrs about geocaching. Originally from Canada and now living in North Carolina USA, he loves rock music, LEGO and caching. His blog has a good mix of all of those and is well written and peppered with excellent photographs and a great sense of humour. Slide on over to his site to see how Dave tackled Washknight’s Interrogation.

Kevin lives in Buckinghamshire UK and maintains a fantastically well written blog that is packed with stories about his family’s adventures. As well as geocaching, which he blames his wife for getting him into, his blog contains articles about travelling and he and his wife’s passion for running. A good writing style and a dry cheeky sense of humour will keep you coming back time and time again. Check out how Kevin answered the questions.
