Title: Geocaching
Post by: PitSnipe (Kyle) on May 24, 2014, 11:26:27 AM
So I have to admit. Rosie invited me to go geocaching about a month ago, but I declined. I had never heard of it at that time. Shortly after I looked it up and tried it. I am beyond addicted. I've been doing it for 24 days now, have 97 finds, and have a streak of 22 days straight with a find. Most geocaching is in the city. It is good to find the urban ones to familiarize yourself with the different hiding styles. Then there are the ones out away from the city. These can be challenging. This is where it gets fun though. We all love off-roading and being out with nature. Geocaching allows us to treasure hunt and go wheeling at the same time. Its all about the find. The reward is really nothing but a trinket and a log to sign. Like I said the fun is the hunt. I have even gotten my wife and daughter involved. Check it out and maybe Ill see ya out there. Watch out for muggles (you'll understand if you are a geocacher).

This is a super fun family thing.  We have been geocaching for couple years now.  There was a real fun one we found on the very top of Santan Mountain.  Even found a geo cache medal that had a tracking number on it and found had come from Hawaii

Went out geocaching this morning just like I do most weekends. This morning I spent some time north of the Sun Valley Parkway and 241 Ave. I found 6 cache today and ended up with a flat tire too. I got to use my Hi Lift jack for the first time. The flat ended my morning so I headed to work to patch the tire. Patch is holding and the next geocache awaits. Here are some pics I captured.

The smallest geo we have found so far was a magnet the size of a watch battery that opened and had a small paper for log in it.  Some are really inventive.

After nearly three months of Geocaching I have found a cache for 52 consecutive days now and found #250 today. I think I have a problem. With this heat its time to start heading up north. Maybe after my Wisconsin trip we can get something going. Maybe a wheeling/ geocache adventure.

Went out and did some geocaching this morning. Found 14 total. The highlight of my morning was coming across a rattle snake. After living here for 19 years this is my first rattler. I was not paying attention and if I didn't hear him rattle I would have walked right over him. So after I nearly shit myself I got back to the geocaching. So I guess I learned a valuable lesson today. When in the desert please pay attention to your surroundings.

Went out on the Maricopa Trail in the far west valley this morning. I think I'm addicted to geocaching.

Took part in a event in Surprise today. it was a CITO (Cache In Trash Out) event. About 40 of us showed up to do a sweep of the Surprise lake and park and remove any trash. It was neat to meet other geocachers and swap stories and secrets.

So its been a while since I've updated this. My Geocaching has slowed down over the past few months. I still try when I can. Yesterday was a busy day and I managed to score 8 more. I ended up doing some exploring out in West Buckeye at the Robbins Butte Wildlife Area and ended up finding 5 cache out there. I was only able to find 3 of the 5 though. After a few hours out there I headed east to Buckeye and found myself in a town that Google Maps call Allenville. Its south of Buckeye along the Gila River. I grabbed one out there and then headed home. After I got done working the Hockey game last night I picked up 4 more caches around the Glendale Airport area. Night caches are fun. Especially in desert settings. So after almost a year geocaching I'm sitting at 475 finds in 6 states.

There's a few apps for it. I use the one called "c:geo", you can load all nearby geocaches using your cell signal and GPS. Out in those really desolate areas though where there's hardly a cell signal you can save them to your phone app for offline use. It's pretty simple. The app works well for me, other people just save the coordinates and put it in their own Garmin or whatever. It's fun.

Same here. I use c:geo app on my android phone. The GPS feature can be a little off but works great. When I hit 500 finds I am going to buy a GPS and start hiding my own caches. I've heard its not good to hide with your phone due the GPS cords tend to bounce around.

Went back out this afternoon after naps were over. Went after 3 I've had my eye on northwest of the White Tanks. Scored all 3 and had a good time exploring the area.
Found the huge saguaro cactus and ran into some cattle.

Happy Easter to all. After all of the family festivities wore off the minions and I set off into the desert for grab a few caches. Went back to clean up a few west of the White Tanks. One that I found was actually farther west. Followed the canal road to the pumping station where it goes under the Hassayumpa River. After crossing the river it was another 5 miles to the cache site. It was actually hidden at an old abandoned gravel yard. No buildings at this one. You could still see the foundations though. This place was a dirt bike honey hole. Its always nice to stumble on new territory. After that cache I ventured north into the desert around Whittman and snatched two more as the sun was setting. This brings my cache total to 533 finds.

Just after crossing the river

Went out along the Maricopa Trail and picked up 4 more caches. That brings my total up to 553 finds. The Maricopa Trail is a newer trail system that caters to the hiking and bike crowd. No motor vehicles allowed. After that I found myself close to the White Tanks and for the first time took a trail though the north end. In the second pic Surprise is in the background.

Wow it was a great weekend for geocaching. Went up to Child's for a little camping on Friday. Picked up 8 caches on the way to the camp spot. Saturday grabbed 6 more and had some help from Hammer while on a hike. Today I scored 23 with my kids while the wife was away working. That's 37 caches found in 3 days. The Geocaching anniversary was on Saturday May 2nd. Its been 15 years since the public was able to start using GPS for this excellent hobby.

Spent the day with the kids exploring and geocaching. Today I set out to complete the Sun Valley Parkway Series. I went out from 9am to Noon and completed the southern end and picked up few at the south end of the White Tanks. Went home to feed the kids and get some naps in. Then went back out from 4pm to 7pm. Completed the rest of the series along with a few from the C.A.P. series. It was a great day. I even ran into an older couple from Iowa along the way. So after a total of six hours out geocaching I found 38 hides (old one day record was 23) bringing my total to 653 finds. I also have a streak of finding at least one a day for 17 days now (old consecutive streak was 55 days in a row). Thinking about knocking out the whole C.A.P. series next Sunday if anyone wants to join.

Wow, do you have a goal in mind or just going to find them all?

My current goal is to beat my old daily streak of 55 days and then see how long I can continue it. My long term goal is to find all of them. I like to look at the map and [plot out where I am going. I also like to blanket certain areas. I have Surprise about 90% complete.

Went out this morning and grabbed 10 more out near Whittman. Came across this memorial and thought it was fitting for the Memorial Day Weekend.

Geocaching is the real-world treasure hunt that's happening right now, all around you. There are 2,631,798 active geocaches and over 6 million geocachers worldwide.

I stumble on Geocaches from time to time when I am out hiking. I ran into one this morning, and it reminded me of this thread.

I don't know that you'll be able to locate all 2.6 million. 
Sure you will.  The problem is, when you get all 2.6 million, there will be a 4 million more to find.

Another weekend in the books. Spent most of the weekend out near Whittmann. There is the TT series and the SS series that I have been picking from. 12 total found for the weekend. That's pretty low for my standards. The heat is coming on strong and I feel that the early mornings are going to be the only time I am going to go out. My daily streak is now up to 45 consecutive and I have found a total of 787 caches. Here's a couple pics from the weekend.

It doesn't take much to find them. I am sure there are some around your house.
You are always posting up on FB about nothing to do or what should you do.
This is what I do when I am bored. I look up on the internet in a certain area of the desert that I have never been. Then I go exploring. I not only go geocaching, I go exploring and check out new areas to return to.

Went out this morning before it got too hot. I focused on 203rd Ave just north of Grand Ave. This road has a bunch of SS Series caches hidden. I have been here before, but decided to get them all this time. I ended up finding all but one along this road as well as finding a geocoin in one of the caches. On the west side of the road is an abandon building that looks like it was some type of business at one time. It has a loading dock in the rear and lots of bees inside. Also found some graffiti that I love to see so much. I just appreciate the art that goes into it. 203rd Ave is pretty desolate so I grabbed a pic in the middle of the road.

So to finish up the week I have now found at least one cache 52 days in a row and my total is 805 caches found.

Geocoin

Another weekend has passed. Saturday morning I spent some time up in the area of I17 and Pinnacle Peak Rd and grabbed 4 urban caches. In the afternoon I went out to the west side of the White Tanks were I grabbed 5 more. Sunday morning I headed over to an area that was once an ostrich farm. It has an old circle track too. This was located off od 171st Ave and Jomax Rd. There is a series of 10 geocaches called the Jomax Races series which all were pretty easy finds. Then in the afternoon I headed up to north Peoria. Grabbed the one by Wild Horse West burger joint and then headed over to Canyon raceway for another. Kind of skirted that area and grabbed what I could. So after the weekend geocaching came to the end I had found 24 total bringing my total to 834 found. I have also continued my daily streak and am currently at 59 days straight with a find.

Heres a shot from the ostrich farm.

I am Premium and im into my second year. My first year I was not premium. I wanted to see how committed I would be before I paid into it. I love it. I don't use the geocaching app though. It limits the geocaches that you can see. I use an app called c:geo. I love it. It even has more features than the geocaching app. And the app is free.

My screen name on Geocaching is OffRoad_X. Look me up if you like and we can become friends. Also hit me up if you ever want to tag team some geocaches. That goes for all of you.

Post by: PitSnipe (Kyle) on July 05, 2015, 04:07:54 PM
Welcome to my world of geocaching. I did not post after last weekend. Last weekend I camped up on the rim at Bear Canyon Lake with a few from AZXC. I was only able to grab one from up on the rim. Spotty cell service made it very difficult to track them, I see a hand held GPS in my very near future. On the way home last Sunday I stopped in Payson and grabbed a few caches. I ended up getting rid of 3 travel bugs over the course of the weekend.

Last Tuesday I ended my daily streak at 67 days. Sometimes life gets in the way and you just don't have the time. Its kind of a relief knowing that the streak is over. Each day I would try to figure out where I was going to find my daily. Now I just go when I can. No daily streaks in my near future.

Yesterday (Saturday) I set out to grab one that eluded me about a month back. Name of the cache is Tough S.O.B. It is located west of the Sun Valley Parkway through a ranchers land. You have to cross two very sandy washes. I actually thought that I was going to get stuck. Well I managed to find it this time. So after that I crossed the Parkway and headed east to the White Tanks. I took Bell Rd (was a dirt trail but said Bell Rd on the map) right up to the mountain and scored three more finds. I called it a day around noon. It was getting a little hot. I got some good pics and enjoyed geocaching and exploring on 4th of July morning.

Today I set out west to Tonopah to grab a few isolated geocaches. I started in Tonopah off the Tonopah Salome Highway and bounced around as I grabbed two. Then I decided to take 355 ave (the back way the Wickenburg) north and try to find some dormant ones. The 2nd one along this leg I found hadn't been found in 9 months and the 3rd one hadn't been found in just over a year. Eventually I lost cell signal again. So I decided to call it a day. I ended up with 8 total today.

Well my finding has slowed down drastically. My total is currently at 858 finds.

Where I scored the first cache and almost got stuck.

Two things.

I think we should make a board topic for geocaching.

And second, is there a way to print geocaching maps? I don't have a premium membership at the moment but I am pretty sure I did not see that as a feature on geocaching.com.

I started using the  c:geo recently but didn't see that as a feature either.

Sure, lets make it board topic.

The problem with geocaching.com is it usually only shows you caches in the area that you are currently in. Also if you print a map then you will not know the coordinates of each cache. You would have to print a map and then print each individual cache. If you are a premium member then you have access to all caches. That's why most people use the app or use a gps device.

I believe that c:geo is by far the best geocaching app out there. It is the most user friendly and has almost all the same info as the geocaching app. There are times that I still use the geocaching app.

As far as features. What features are you looking for? Printing maps? Just print off the website if that's what your looking for. If I am going off the grid I write down the coordinates and plug them into the gps feature in my phone.

Its been a few weeks since I have posted here. My geocaching has slowed down drastically since I ended my daily streak.
I just returned from a camping trip up on the Mogollon Rim. Cell service was spotty where we camped off of FR504. I did manage to grab one near our camp site where FR 504 and FR99 meet. I headed in to Heber and Overgaard and scored 6 caches. Lots of large containers out there. Then on the way home I grabbed one in Payson. That leaves my find total at 899.

I was unable to attend the Fat Tire run so I made the best of my weekend and busy geocaching.

Saturday morning there was a CITO event(GC5TZ08)(cache in trash out) at the Surprise Park. It was nice to clean up the park and meet other geocachers. Then after that there was a Meet and Greet and Eat (GC5Z9N4) held at Archie's Deli in Surprise for breakfast.

Later in the day I visited an Earthcache (GC5ADCE) at a propane storage and transfer facility in far west Phoenix.

Today I worked on a stretch of caches along the Old El Mirage Rd north of Bell Rd in Sun City. I ended up finding 7 of 9.

Its still pretty hot out there and my search efforts aren't nearly as productive as during the cooler months. I am currently at 913 finds.

A pic from my morning.

My geocaching has slowed to a dismal crawl. This summer was a hot summer. With the cooler weather I shall return to my old ways. I did get one yesterday that was very impressive. I was the second to find it and received a pretty cool prize. It is a newly placed Travel Bug Hotel off of the 303 and Camelback Rd. I also grabbed a TB while I was there.

If you are in the area I highly suggest checking this one out.

As September comes to a close I am currently at 955 finds.

Here is my prize for being second to find.

I had a geocaching thread going and after some time we decided that it needed its own topic thread.

I have not yet hit 1000 finds. I am currently at 961. The problem is I have found about 95% of them in Surprise ad haven't been getting out as much as I used to.

So I got off work early today and decided to do some geocaching. Went to an area near Grand Ave and Happy Valley rd near Wittmann. After giving up on the first one I decided to play for a little. Well that ended up getting me stuck. I high centered myself. After nearly and hour and a half I dug myself out. Good thing I have a shovel. My machete also proved to be a great tool.

Nice save.

I ran a few searches last night looking around Tucson. There's a couple that are hikeable from my apt in the Tucson mountains. I have one more botany lab tomorrow (sat) morning and I'm free for the semester. Might try and tackle a few of those once I'm done.

Also checked on some caches along routes driving up into Utah and over into Cali. Thinking of a road trip for the holidays since I'm not going home this year. Might mix in some fossil hunting as well. We'll see how this all pan out.

Not sure if you've seen this web site but I started chasing more of the remote caches as they are ranked on LonelyCache.com. This site assigns points to geocaches based on difficulty and remoteness, with the assumption that fewer people are going to take the time to pursue remote caches. The higher the points on a cache means the less number of times its been visited, and in theory the more remote it is. The system only contains geocaches from the southwest (AZ, NM, west TX, southern CA, NV, UT, Sonora, etc.) but all geocaches in those areas are listed and ranked by the points system. Your caching username should also be on there, or maybe you have to set up an account, I can't remember, but its free and pulls the data directly over from geocaching. Its a pretty cool way to look at geocaches based on difficulty and remoteness.

In case you haven't heard, Governor Ducey just made geocaching allowable on State Trust Land. So for you STL permit holders this is a cool thing for trail running. Personally, as long as everyone is respectable, it means more geocaching in areas for us offroaders that are less traveled.

http://azgovernor.gov/governor/news/2016/02/governor-doug-ducey-announces-geocaching-now-allowed-state-trust-land

A memo issued Jan. 27 by Land Commissioner Lisa Atkins outlines new geocaching rules for state trust lands, saying:

Geocachers will have to pay $15 for a recreation permit to go hunting for the small treasures on state land.

Objects left behind on state land for geocaching cannot be bigger than a shoebox, hazardous or harmful, or considered high in value.

The state isn't liable for reimbursing geocachers for lost items left behind.

State officials can remove and destroy caches at any time.

And they don't have to notify geocachers when land goes up for lease or sale.
Title: Re: Geocaching
Post by: Highpointer on February 08, 2016, 06:43:28 PM
Excellent. I had a couple friends lose hundreds each when the state trust went through the GIS layers and forced geocaching to archive all caches placed on trust lands. This should ultimately bring thousands of caches back into play once everyone gets their hides reset and relisted.

Went and found two caches the other day, one was a two parter and the second part was a hike up part of South Mountain. The family decided to forgo that one that day due to the heat.

The second cache was a micro, so log only but it was a fun and interesting one to 'find'.  If you are in the Tukee area, check out, "The JOYZ of anagrams"

Busy with way too much stuff lately.... glancing at my GC profile today I realized I hadn't even grabbed one cache yet this year. :-\ Think I need to remedy that very soon.

BTW, I never introduced my geocaching-self on here. I go by Broken Trowel on GC. I was working in Ajo as an archaeologist when I started caching so the name references the main tool of the trade for my work back then. ;D

Kinda lost touch with geocaching. I really need to get out more. Too bad its so hot out now though. I went out last Saturday and bagged three north of the White Tanks. It felt really good to find a couple after its been a few months. I am getting so close to hitting 1000 finds.

I went this morning in search of some caches. I decided to hit up the White Tanks and ended up doing some of the Mail Run series. I found ten geocaches and now I am so close to 1000 finds. Only 5 more to go.

Found some cool caches by our house this past week, there are so many more but they require a little hiking, and the kids aren't into it right now. If anyone is interested let me know.

Two years ago I bought the year membership. I used it a lot. You'd be amazed how many premium caches they keep hidden. Anyway, as time went on I didn't play as much and decided to not renew. Its been over a year now and I really only play when I go out of town. I am currently ay 1060 finds and all of Surprise is cleared out. I go through spurts where ill find some them months will go by before I look again.

Spent the morning geocaching with my son. We did a portion of the POP series north of the White Tanks. Ended up finding 13 of the 17 caches in that stretch (32 total in the series). This brings my total to 1073 found.

Went back out today and found 16 of 20 caches that I had planned to grab. These caches were part of the SS and POP series north of the White Tanks. This brings my total to 1089 caches found.

A few years ago I spent a lot of time in this area exploring. I came across this water tank and I had to pose like I did back then.

Few years ago

Second day in a row out geocaching the SS and POP series north of the White Tanks. I found 12 of the 15 that I searched for. Had to cut my morning short. I could have gone all day. Anyway, this brings my total to 1101 finds.

I doubt I'll ever catch up. I always forget to check.
