Cacher of the Month - July 2014




With both of us being cachers for many years, I would have hoped to meet goldfinch99. Looking at his stats, I see that we only have 1 event in common, and I cannot remember if I had an opportunity to talk to him. I must work on my social skills! Not having any anecdotes to tell you about him, I'll have to rely on his caching stats to speak to me. He's been caching for almost six years now and has found over 2200 caches. Seeing that he took a 3 year hiatus, I think that's quite a feat, having amassed all but 4 of those in the last 2.5 years. I am glad that he has returned to active caching, and look forward to meeting him. Read on to learn more about the July MBGA Cacher of the Month, goldfinch99.

Geocaching Events 101

So you're a newer Geocacher and have yet to come out to an event Geocache. How do I find them? What do I do? What if I don't know anyone? These are common things that cachers think about when it comes to events.

So we'll take a few minutes to go through some of those thoughts. I will welcome feedback from people and add to this post.

Why should you attend an event? At first blush, Geocaching appears to be a solitary activity. However, most people were introduced to Geocaching by a friend. That in itself would have been fun.
