Because of Geocaching..

Corey Stevens - STUFF IT!

Ask Doctor D..

Hey Dr. D!

I have had people find my caches and write really nice logs, in which they say that they are awarding it a favorite point. But when I look at who has actually marked that cache as a favorite, their name is not on the list. I'm just wondering what, if anything, you would do if it was your cache.

Happy caching!


PS - I shared a Diet Coke with you today!










Scott Berks has something to say to Doctor D.

Dudley Grunt sent us a link to his latest cache, which borders USA & Canada

Dumb Things Geocachers Do..

Not check the GPSr before going out.

Nemesis Geocache..

Dave DeBaeremaeker I had a different sort of nemesis cache.

As you know I am Canadian, but live in the US. In Canada. Just a short distance from where our family lives, exists one of the oldest trees in Canada. It is called the Comfort Maple. I didn't know this tree existed until I started geocaching, but ever since I discovered it about 4 years ago, I have wanted to do the geocache at the tree.

We tend to visit family once a year or so (its a 13 hour drive), but every time we go I went to the site of the Comfort Maple, and hunted for the cache. Every time, almost like a conspiracy, the cache has gone missing just before I arrive, and replaced sometime after I'm gone. 

Every. Single. Time.

Until this last time, when Lady Luck, The Fates, or just good living, finally cut me a break and I was able to grab the cache there.

After seeing the hide, there is no way I missed it before - it was definitely gone.

I have a blog post about the Comfort Maple here: The Comfort Maple

Greetings Podcasters,

We would be really grateful if you could make space for the following bit of news in the next edition of your podcast.

"The Geocaching Association of Great Britain (GAGB) was established in 2003 to provide a national geocaching organisation and serve as a UK and Ireland point of contact for geocachers, landowners, the media and others with an interest in geocaching. We maintain a database containing details of landowner consents and/or restrictions on the placement of caches, in respect of many parts of the UK and Ireland; provide a GAGB members' forum; maintain codes of conduct and geocaching guidance; liaise with landowners as necessary; offer support to geocachers generally and provide a national organisation for enquiries about geocaching from the public, the media and others.

The GAGB also produces a bi-monthly full-colour e-magazine, 'Seeker', containing UK and Ireland caching news, reviews and articles.

Last year we celebrated our 10th birthday by holding CITO events across the UK. We decided to make this an annual event, on the second weekend of September and so across the 13th and 14th of September we are inviting cachers from all across the UK and Ireland to join us in attending, or even hosting an event.

This year we wanted to step away from the typical "picking tin cans out of a layby" CITO and really want to focus on the conservational aspect that often gets overlooked. We have had several events published so far, from the South coast to the North of England and the tasks being performed are really exciting.

In Thirsk, volunteers will be clearing an ancient dyke ready for archaeologists to get in and explore

In Horsham, the team will be assisting with heathland management and birch tree removal

In North Somerset, attendees will be mowing a meadow with scythes, the most eco friendly way to manage the meadow

At Weymouth, folks will be getting involved with a nature reserve and removing invasive species.

And there is lots more to do

We really want to encourage as many cachers as possible to come out and support these events. Of course you may not have an event close to you, so why not host one yourself? You can contact the committee on and we will be happy to get you started with your CITO event listing.

You can find a bookmark list of all the events published so far at

We look forward to seeing you soon.


On behalf of the GAGB
