Simulated LPC Experience

No, Simulated LPC Experience, is not the name of a band, rather it’s the name of a new geocache here in Charlotte. (more…)

Dynamic Images in Geocache Listing [Updated]

I’m not a builder.  I don’t have the “handy” gene that most of the men in my family have.  Instead, I have the nerd gene.  The gene that makes me look at something online and wonder how it is done.  How I would have done it differently or better.  With that being said I realized I’m probably not [...]

Javascript in your geocache listing

Ok.   I admit, the title is a little misleading, but this week I found a neat little work around to the Groundspeaks limitations of what you can put in a cache listing.  To some this may not seem like much but to me it opened up a while new realm of possibilities. (more…)

A geocaching concentration puzzle

What a crappy entry to come back into the blogging world with. But deal with it. I’ve been working hard lately on coming up with ideas for new types of geocaches. Clever hides, good places, fun challenges, and mostly new technology that could be brought into geocaching. My best idea, or the or I’m [...]

1000 geocaches!

This past weekend I hit a geocaching milestone.  I found my 1000th geocache find.  Many of my 1000 were located in parking lots or on guardrails, or other places that took little to no skill to find.  Not to say that I haven’t had my fair share of memorable caches in that 1000 though.  There have [...]

The quest for Confederates Lost gold

I was looking for an adventure, and boy did I find one.  One that would challenge me mentally, physically, and push me beyond what I thought my limits were.  I now know that I can do a lot more than I thought possible.  But not for quite some time since my muscles are still killing me. [...]

Checkers FOTY – The next step

So I’ve written, rewritten, self-promoted, blogged, tweeted, and facebooked all in an effort to become the Checkers Fan of the year. It all paid off. I’m now one of 16 finalists for the Charlotte Checkers fan of the year. I realized after meeting the other candidates and getting more information [...]
How the hell do I open this?

All geoaches are not created equal

Much like anything else in life not all caches are equal.  Some involve long hikes or even swimming and diving.  While others require nothing more than locating the correct lamp post in the Walmart parking lot.  Today I did one of the cruelest caches I’ve ever done. (more…)

Planning the great adventure

What is an adventure?  Does adventure lie in the destination?  Can you truly plan an adventure?  Or is planning the counter-intuitive anti-adventure?  Many people subscribe to the the cliched, yet true, “it’s about the journey not the destination” mindset.  To me the best adventures occur happen [...]

Superfan challenge

For the past month or so I’ve been writing about trying to be named the Charlotte Checkers fan of the year.  After seeing my name in lights the other night I got excited but couldn’t help but wonder what the next step was. Thankfully I didn’t have to wait long to find out a little bit more. [...]
