More or less a typical caching week…

17 01 2008

Welcome back to this, my second installment in this new adventure of The Blog. First, I’d like to show you my new pin, awarded for platinum earthcache masters: finding 20 in 5 states and hiding 3.

Platinum pin

Whee!
Actually, I do enjoy earthcaches, as I always enjoy learning something new.

This week I got more caches in than last week. On Saturday, I went to Pasadena and Sierra Madre with 2 of my “usual suspects”: f0t0m0m and OLdweeb. We did a minimal amount of hiking and a couple dozen urbans. The highlight of the day was finding two caches that involved contacting a cacher in VA for alternate waypoints. Our partner there in Alexandria was Team Weathergirl.

My week was capped off with a few in the San Fernando Valley today as I was running errands.

I also replaced a missing cache:
Doubly Dead
AND submitted a new Earthcache – a One Stop Geology Stop in Elsmere Canyon. (It’s awaiting approval.)

I think the piéce de resistance of my week, though, was hiding Le cache est mort! Vive le cache! How much should I give away? Let’s just say, it’s fitting memorial for the THREE caches I had there previously in a tree that’s no longer there!

One more tidbit: I found this while looking for other blogs and such on geocaching. It looks like a really nice collection of geophotos.
