It’s a new year and a new day… and all that. And yes there have been a few new geocaching blogs pop onto the scene. I tend to wait a few months to see if the blogger continues in the same enthusiastic vein as they started before adding it to my list of geocaching blogs. That being said, there has been no shortage of great geocaching related blog articles publish in January. Here is just a few of the ones that caught my eye.
Geo-Mumma Kel on Groundspeak guidelines
If you have placed more than a couple of caches, chances are you may have been tripped up by the Groundspeak guidelines once in a while. In this eloquently written article, Kel tells of her recent observations in respect of placing caches that reference pop culture and/or commercial content. As I was reading this I found myself nodding and agreeing many times with her comments on the lack of consistency when it comes to the implementation of the guidelines and at the same time giggling on the humourous and light hearted nature of the article.
ultimate geocacher list
Ever considered what the ultimate list of geocaching must dos is/? Well here is one version from the Memfis Mafia Blog. How many of them would make it to your To Do list?
Griff Grof toys with caches in South Gloucestershire
It is always nice to see a blog come back to life after a break and I was delighted to see a couple of new articles pop onto Griff Grof’s site recently. In this article he tells of a recent outing to tackle a muddy Toy Story series.
Nuclear Search and Rescue with Mr and Mrs HG137
The Sandhurst geocachers tell of a recent outing to claim their 1300th cache and how they met up with a search and rescue dog while in search of a nuclear bunker. This article caught my eye as I am fascinated by the left over relics from the threat of nuclear war an if only I could summon the courage would visit a nearby cache in a bunker myself… but for the moment I will stick to reading blogs 🙂
>Get out into the Snowpocolypse
You would have to have been living under a rock not to be aware of the epic snow storms that swept across the US recently. I must have been nestling slightly under the rock though as I wasn’t aware that it was being referred to as Snowpocolypse, a name that despite its potentially dangerous conatations, nevertheless made me giggle. Not being one to be kept down, Mrbream tells of how he ventured out with his girls to find some smilies.
