Favorite Points for you!!!I have found over 4500 different caches, but am still amazed with some of the caches and the containers when they are cool ones.
Check out this video link of a Cool Gadget Cache I found a couple weeks ago while in Agassiz to do a show.
Finding Favorite cachesIn December when I was in Edmonton for Christmas and New Years, I grabbed a challenge cache called "Top 10 Challenge Cache" which sadly for a cool challenge cache of Top 10 favorites, it was only a magnetic light pole cache. (A favorite point can be rewarded to a cache by cachers if they feel it is a great cache)
But the challenge was a good one, it was to find the top 10 favorited caches within 20km of your home. I found and signed the log, but was unsure if I had found all of the caches need. When I got home I took a look and found there was still 4 that I needed to complete. I got the "CacheDuino" shortly after getting back from my trip and you can read about that adventure in a previous blog. The one cache on this list below called "Gold Star - Graduation Day Foundations" unfortunately is not just a simple multi. Nope, to do this cache you need to complete 10 other puzzle caches in a series to get several clues to be able to find the whereabouts of the cache and how to open it. So in other words to complete my "Top 10 Challenge" I have to find a total of 20 different caches. I started working on the 10 puzzles when I had time, and got a bit of help for a couple of them.
I started to grab all of the Gold Star caches, so I could work out the final co-ords to the multi. I got 7 of them one day, and the remaining 3 on the following day during the May long weekend.
Well, today was the day. In December when I was in Edmonton for Christmas, I found a challenge cache that you had to find the 10 most favorited caches within 20km from your home location. I have already found several of them, but this cache was one of those that I needed, but as you know to get this cache you need to find 10 other puzzle caches to find all the info to get this one. Which basically meant I had to find 20 caches before I can log the challenge cache in Edmonton. I have been picking away at the puzzles over the past few months, and finally got them all solved. I then proceeded to find them over a couple of days, while collecting all the clues in them. Almost didn't find one and was about to bail on it, but did one more search further away than the Co-ords and made the find. With a bit of help from another caching friend, I deciphered the remaining clues, did all the math and got the final cords and the codes. Today I took a day off, and thought I would go make the find. When I got there, the GPS and my phone app took me away from the cache site as I was almost on top of the cache. Finally back on track, and looking a bit harder I saw the little bugger(actually quite a big bugger)(See pic)
|PS It is mixed, so no spoiler!!|
So with one more heavily favorited cache to find, my little boy and I went Sunday morning to Science World to check out the Pixar Exhibit. On the way home we decided to stop and grab the cache called "In-Tree-Ging" (Video was filmed by Oliver)
