I Can’t Believe This Cache Still Lives February 2, 2010

I thought Not on the wal CA would have been muggled by now.  It has lasted a whole 6 months and with many entertaining stories in the logs, too.  This one is officially on my Greatest Hits bookmark list.

Most Aggressive Cache Evar August 21, 2009

Ok, most aggressive cache in my limited experience playing this game.  That little counter on the right doesn’t read 6,000 or anything, but when it does I’ll revise this post to remove that clarification.  But I digress…

Our local Geocaching Godfather, Kawikaturn, is generally known for a few things here in North San Diego County:

  1. Coordinates that actually get you to GZ
  2. Caches with a nice off-road flavor, usually with a not too strenuous walk from parking, but a walk nonetheless
  3. Recurring themes of eBay (oh, man do I know all about that), motocross and family friendliness in the placement
  4. Et Cetera, Et Cetera.

Kawikaturn’s just a generally nice guy and he’s got more ammo cans spread over the hiking trails of Carlsbad than I can count.  This is why an urban, aggressive hide is so out of character for him.

An urban hide with no cover to search and sign.  At a Wal-Mart.  Right in front of the darned entrance.  This particular Wal-Mart is right next to the pizza joint where we normally have our local gatherings.  I think it means this is an initiation; perhaps you can’t come in unless you’ve signed that log?  This is just a new side of Kawikaturn I haven’t seen before.  The man knows how to get down, that’s for sure.

Enter: GC1WGE2 – Not on the wal CA, here in Oceanside, CA only if you think you’ve got the guts for it.  At the time of this post there have only been 9 finds.  I say make it 90 by the end of the summer!

Tip ‘o the hat to Calipers for reminding me to hunt this one down.

Back. Promise. August 17, 2009

It has been too long.  Too, too long.  I missed the last two local events (trust me, that really does suck) and I have been getting grief from fellow cachers about my prior post something like a month ago and several bits of reality have conspired to keep me both from the trail and this blog.  First off, this is my house:

My House, Sort Of

My House, Sort Of

Normally I would do all that fancy crop, zoom and highlight but you can see by the fence and distinct lack of a roof that really this is not so much a house as a pile of crap masquerading as a meth lab.  Or something.  It’s looked like this since March.  No- let me rephrase that…

…we didn’t have the official “this is probably a condemned property” fence until 3 weeks ago, and some of the roof was still there (and the meth lab is a new addition brought in from other sources) but you get the picture.  This is a problem.  Don’t worry, we’re pouring concrete this week so it should rapidly improve from “meth lab” to something just below “public nuisance” in just a few weeks.  The tent we’ve been living out of in the field near 76 and Canyon is weathering well.  “Crazy Mike” says hi, and “wharrgarble!”.  He’s got an accent, don’t you know.

Meanwhile, I actually made a few (22) finds yesterday, some with great pics I want to share.  Somebody has been busy dropping little mint tins while I’ve been out of pocket.  I like it.  I also heard Dougandsuzy, Waterlassie and Kawikaturn were all out of town on the road this weekend.  I gotta get me some of that weekend out of town caching.  Sounds fun.
