Geocaching, anyone?
« on: 24.07.2009, 01:57:58 »

I recently returned to Geocaching and found out that this activity is quite popular among Czech furries. I have several travel bug dog tags and an idea: How about making the Eurofurence travel bug (or in general Furry travel bug) and place in one of nearby caches? If anyone is interested, drop me note here, or even better mail to altair (at) furry (dot) cz.

Selroth and I have a geobug to put somewhere, it was picked up from England but the one we wanted to put it in in Italy we couldn't find! :(  Would be good to place it somewhere in Germany if possible so it can carry on it's travels :)

Yay, Geocachers.^^

I'll certainly bring my GPS to EF, although I don't know if I'll have enough free time to actually go searching, but we'll see.^^

I've only recently (in the past few months) gotten to know about this, not been able to do any geocaching right now though sadly. The urban ones I could do are tricky to hunt down as they always make them into a sodding puzzle! :P

Yay geocaching
I plan in bringing two bugs to drop off while I am there, seems to be a lot around EF or near public transit.

I want to go geocaching as well on EF. I have made a Bookmark-List of Caches that I want to try, at least a few of them.

JBadger: Why just these two Mysteries? There are alot more other caches. A few Earth Caches, a few WhereIgo Caches, a Letterbox-Hybride, and lots of Traditional and Multi Caches.

MurphyFox: Ahhh well it is a language thing and I just picked randomly the closest two mysteries.
But if you have others in mind I am game for that.
I do not have a WhereIGo compatible device so I did not download any of those, but if you do I could go with you?

I have to catch my flight in a few hours, I have 90 minutes to get my train to the airport at this point so just find me at the con, unless I get WiFi, I will not be reading here.

Ok ... I was just wondering.

But if you have others in mind I am game for that.

Some Caches would be the Earth Caches "Salt Spring / Salzquelle" or "Magdeburger Domfelsen".

One or more Caches of the little Series of eight "lost place" / "abandoned Place"-Caches: "VEB RAW - Kantine (LPC)" (picked one out of that series)

One WhereIgo would be "Die grĂ¼ne Zitzadelle von Magdeburg" at / around the Hundertwasser-Building near the Maritim Hotel.

Only a few examples, I would like to try some more other caches too.

I do not have a WhereIGo compatible device so I did not download any of those, but if you do I could go with you?

I have a Garmin Oregon 300, that can play WhereIgo Cartridges. I hope my english is good enough to translate all the text from them.
