Caching the WORLD!!!So back in May/16 I started on a multi cache that would take me all across the world....Well, OK maybe not literally but it would sorta feel like it. It is a cache called "World Cache" and it is technically a 25 stage multi. 5 Stages I would have to find, while 4 other cachers from other countries would have to find 5 each also. The idea of this cache is to unite with 4 other cachers that you contact or they contact you. There are links to each others starting coordinates.
At these posted coordinates you will find a set of coordinates for one of the other countries. You will have to e-mail these coordinates to the team member in that country. They can then go to that waypoint and find the next set of coordinates which will be for another country, then e-mail it to the team member for that country, and so on till the caches are completed.
For example, the team member in Australia finds Stage 1 of World Cache (Australia), and e-mails the coordinates they find to their teammate in Germany, who can then find Stage 2 of Cache (Germany). At their local Stage 2, the Germany team will find the coordinates for Stage 3 of World Cache (United Kingdom), which they will e-mail to their UK teammate.
Back in May, I set out to find a team member from the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, and The United States of America. Once the team was formed, you announce it on your countries cache page. Then the hunt begins. In the chart below is how the cache stages worked. As you can see, so far our progress as the RED stages of coordinates have been found. Hopefully soon I will have the
co-ords for my fifth and final stage here in The Vancouver, BC area and I will finally get a smiley for it.
|Country||Stage 1||Stage 2||Stage 3||Stage 4|
|Australia||Germany 2||USA 3||UK 4||Canada Final|
|Canada||Australia 2||Germany 3||USA 4||UK Final|
|Germany||USA 2||UK 3||Canada 4||Australia Final|
|United Kingdom||Canada 2||Australia 3||Germany 4||USA Final|
|United States of America||UK 2||Canada 3||Australia 4||Germany Final|
Hopefully I can get out that way again soon, so I can cross this challenge off my list.
EarthCaches provide an opportunity to learn a geological lesson and visit awe-inspiring geological locations. Visitors can see how our planet has been shaped by geological processes, how we manage its resources and how scientists gather evidence. Typically, to log an EarthCache, you will have to provide answers to questions by observing the geological location.
I looked around my area and there are not that many Earthcaches around. I decided to go pick up my friend and fellow cacher Close Up Matt, and head to Fort Langley to go to "A Lesson on Volcanoes"
We made the find, and grabbed a few more while in Fort Langley and then headed home.

Last month I was talking about Blogs, and some that I like to read and follow. There is a blog called "Awesome Geocaching" that I go to from time to time, and I suggest if you are interested in blogs and caching that you do the same. It's got some really cool links to puzzle's, test's, and information.
