A ‘lil Hoohaa
The owner of this blog started caching in 2008 and has now clocked up over 4000 finds. From their home in the North East of the United States, they continue to seek out quality caches whilst maintaining their belief that the three most beautiful things in life are a perfectly poured pint of Guinness, a freshly cut an dlined baseball field and a sunset over a large body of water.

The Caching Bag
“Geocaching adventures in the Great Lakes”
Elisa a.k.a. Scrapcat lives and caches in southeast Michigan in the USA. She was introduced to caching by her brother on a visit to the Zoo one day back in 2011. She has many interesting, funny and informative stories to tell and they are all laid out beautifully on her blog. In November 2014 she celebrated her 5000th cache on the 1000th day of a caching streak and it doesn’t look like she will be breaking that streak anytime soon. Elisa took Washknight’s interrogation in April 2015.

Fun-Gal Caching
Cheryl A.K.A. Thebuttonmushroom only became interested in all things fungi after selecting her name. Originally from Swansea, Wales she now resides in Hampshire with her husband who “puts up” with her geocaching obsession. Her blog is a veritable treasure trove of caching adventures and her geocaching.com profile is a staggering list of achievements racked up in the time since she started caching in 2009. Cheryl took Washknight’s Interrogation challenge in April 2015.

drsolly
“The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune”
Drsolly is, at time of writing, the cacher with the highest number of finds in the UK, with over 40,000. His blog is an ecclectic mix of posts about current afairs, his fleet of self built electric bikes, devlishily funny ways to deal wiht spammers and cold callers and of course geocaching. Whilst more recently his references to caching are less detailed than they used to be his site is a fantastic archive of useful and funny posts well worth subscribing to.

Geocaching with DS8300
“Weekly update on my geocaching activities”
Martin lives in Sweden and caches under the name DS8300. He can lay claim to having cached in over 40 countries and enjoys travelling and adding to that list whenever he can. As of early 2014 he had found over 4000 caches and the split is almost 50 50 for those in Sweden and those abroad. His blog is informative and well written.

The Gardners
“Life in a nutshell, ‘cos it’s better if you’re nuts!”
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 with a dry cheeky sense of humour will keep you coming back time and time again. Kevin took Washknight’s Interrogation challenge in October 2014

Geocaching Milestones and Memories
“When you go to hide a cache, think of the reason you are bringing people to that spot. If the only reason is for the cache, then find a better spot.”
Dave comes from Chesterland, Ohio in the USA, has been caching with his family since 2004 under the name miatabug and has so far amassed over 15,000 finds. He also leads a double life and as Mr. Ollivander, is one of the groundspeak volunteer reviewers.

Get Out!
“A blog dedicated to getting off the couch, turning off the tube and going outside to do something fun… now Get Out!”
mrbream lives in Georgia, USA and has been caching since 2009, but it wasn’t until August of 2015 whilst listening to a geocaching podcast that he decided that it was time he made an effort to complete his grid… by finding a geocache on every date of the year. He started with over 150 dates left to fill and his blog comprises of a monthly update of his progress and some of the interesting caches he finds along the way. If all goes to plan he will complete his Challenge on August 4th 2016, but will it all go to plan?

Griff Grof’s Geocaching Adventures
Living in the beautiful Cotswolds area of the UK, Griff Grof has been geocaching since 2010. As well as enjoying many adventures he has an active roll in CacheWalker, one of the longest standing regional geocaching communities and is also one of the founding members of Cotswold Caching.

As well as their informative and interesting blog, they also produce regular youtube content and Mr. Lanmonkey is a co-host on the Caching in the North West podcast. Partial to a bit of streaking and more recently caching by kayak, they live in British Columbia, Canada.

Life as a Geocacher
“Life as a Geocacher”
Dick is from America and goes by two different caching names – firennice and Bluerajah. His dual geocaching personality is explained by the fact that since 2009 he has been one of the Volunteer Reviewers for Utah where he lives. He likens his introduction to geocaching to be similar to that of taking the red pill or falling down the rabbit hole. His blog is packed with the details of his adventures along with useful guidance about geocaching from the point of view of both a cacher and a reviewer. If you need anymore of an incentive to head on over to his site then I can tellyou that whilst out geocaching he has saved at least one life and got one of the funniest / chilling spider stories I have ever read. Dick took Washknight’s Interrogation challenge in October 2014.

The Life of a Geocacher
"Adventure is out there"
Sherminator18 lives in New York State in the U.S. and her road to geocaching addiction started in August 2014. By the end of the year she had found over 180 caches and by the end of 2015 that number had rose to 800. She loves to cache with her boyfriend and their dog Rogue. Her blog is a collection of well written accounts of their adventures along with news and information from the geocaching community.

She details the camping and geocaching adventures on her blog in an interesting and engaging way. Oh and she has the words Vivi Ridi Amore tatooed on the inside of one of her wrists to constantly remind herself of her simple mantra, “Live, Laugh, Love”

Memfis Mafia
“A family in search of Adventure”
Memfis Mafia is the rather cool caching id of the blogger behind the site of the same name. Based, disarmingly, not in Memphis, this caching family are involved in geocaching up to their necks in so many ways. The blog is full of the fantastic adventures that they have, and somehow seem to survive, in the pursuit of smileys. Living in Colorado USA, they describe their caching experiences as a series of mistakes that others can learn by. A great positive attitude and a wry sense of humour will have you constantly smiling whilst at the same time frozen slack jawed in awe of some of the bonkers adventures they get up to. Memfis Mafia took Washknight’s Interrogation challenge in October 2014.

Mud And Nettles
“It’s Fun Out There”
Clare lives in Cambridgeshire in the UK and is the mind and fingers behind, in my mind, one of the best named caching blogs… Mud and Nettles. A mum of three, she is relatively new to both caching and blogging. Her passion for the great outdoors and a keen wit will make you want to return to her site over and over again. Clare took Washknight’s Interrogation challenge in October 2014.

Krista is from Surrey in the UK and maintains an enjoyable and funny blog called The Muminator and the geocaching adventures of her family will always have you giggling.

Krista took Washknight’s Interrogation challenge in September 2014.

OpenCaching North America
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. Mr Yuck took Washknight’s Interrogation challenge in October 2014..

Perpetual Recepticles
“A Geocaching Blog”
Jólnir, whilst not a prolific cacher compared to some, has certainly led somewhat of a nomadic life for the past couple of years. Starting out in America, study has meant time spent in the UK,Itlay briefly and now Prince Edward Island in the Canadian Maritimes. The blog with one of the cleverest titles I have come across in a while is a detailed account of Jólnir’s caching adventures and includes a fantastic amount of well captioned and impressive photos that compliment the text. Reading each article is imerssive and it is easy to feel as if you are along for the smiley too.

Planes, Trains and Hire Cars
Mark and Donna are from Warickshire in the UK and cache under the name Delta68. Their blog is a fantastic collection of stories about their geocaching adventures. They have over 17,000 finds, are currently the top cachers in the UK for webcams, have attended every piratemania event and every uk mega event since 2008, one of only a handful of people to do this.

SandhurstGeocachers
The Husband and Wife team of HG137 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. Helen and Graham took Washknight’s Interrogation challenge in October 2014.

smashingcaching

Clairehelena lives in Hertfordshire in the UK and has been caching since 2014 although she only started her blog in 2016. Along with her geocaching partner who she often refers to simply as the ‘man’ but sometimes as dad, she is well over the 1000 find mark and is a self confessed history geek.

Washknight – Geocaching Blind
“Geocaching, tech, life, blindness and assorted witterings!”
I thought I should include my own blog in the list too. I’m Paul, I cache with my other half as Washknight and we live in Hertfordshire UK with our son Sam a.k. miniknight. I discovered geocaching in 2013 and was hooked instantly. It took a little longer to get the other half as addicted but ever since then, we have had all sorts of great caching adventures. My blog is an account of our journey into the sub-culture of caching and how a blind man can manage to geocache at all .

Wittering Squid
With a caching name like Harry The Furry Squid, you would hope for blog articles that are full of humour and entertainment, and you wouldn’t be disappointed. Her entries are extremely well written and packed with insights that are guaranteed to make you smile. Rest assured though that if there is one thing that she is serious about, it is geocaching. Based in Birmingham in the UK she has been caching since 2008 and has a staggering 10 completed Difficulty Terrain grids and over 9000 finds as of mid 2016.

WizzardPrang’s Ramblings
“Do you have the time, to listen to me whine? About nothing and everything all at once.”
Steve has the interesting caching name of WizzardPrang and loves tech, off roading and, of course, caching which he does in and around Hertfordshire where he lives. His site is the second ever geocaching blog that I found and I have been following it for over a year now, tuning back in to enjoy his wry sense of humour and follow his ongoing quest to one day finish the Chiltern 100. I have had the pleasure of meeting him in person a couple of times and I can say he is a bloody nice guy. Steve took Washknight’s Interrogation in October 2014.
