Don’t forget that GeoWoodstock is close enough this year, just make sure to get your hotel room booked.  If you’ve never been to a Mega-Event this is a great one to attend. Things should start happening on May 21st and end the 25th- the actual event is on the May 24th. with some of the updated guidelines it will be interesting to see how that effects the number of cursory events at Woodstock.

Geocaching Events for March 2014

So we survived February and got to the point where we started to think 20 degrees was “shorts weather.” Let’s all try to remember this in August!  I’m not sure what the weather will bring during March, but since the high school boys basketball finals are on March 29 I think it’s fair to assume that we still have some bad weather ahead of us.

As for events to plan for in the area-

Maker Madness Event: Basics of Hiding a Geocache

MOGA 2014
by MOGA | GC491R5 | Athens, Ohio
Registration & Hotel Information

MOGA (Midwest Open Geocaching Adventure) is happening in Central Ohio which is pretty close (I’ve been known to drive to Columbus for lunch).  Registration for that event ends March 15th.  Things will start happening on March 27, with the actual event on the 29th.  I would suggest making it to the opening on the 28th.  Check their website for all the details.  This is a great event but in my opinion not a great one for day trippers since it is really competition based.  That’s not saying the area is full of caches, but I think participants end up having a lot more fun.

February 2014 Geocaching Events

Some weather we’ve been having?  I hope that all the cachers throughout Indiana have taken the appropriate precautions during these extreme conditions.  On some days in January a 1/1 was really a 5/5.  So let’s all stay safe out there and if we really need to cache consider enjoying some time in a state where they wear parkas when the outside temperature is in the 60′s.

February looks almost a bleak as January as more cachers hibernate (or vacation in places where they wear parkas when it is in the 60′s) We’ll try to keep this updated as we learn about more but remember you can do this yourself by clicking on the “Newest in Indiana” link on your profile page at Geocaching.com.  We are starting to see some Earth Day CITOs creep onto the calendar and as we look into the future let’s not forget the fun that is the Spring Picnic!  If you are into some competition (along with fun).

Heads Up about Upcoming (and nearby) Mega-Events

MOGA (Midwest Open Geocaching Adventure) is happening in Central Ohio which is pretty close (I’ve been known to drive to Columbus for lunch).  Registration for that event ends March 15th.  Things will start happening on March 27, with the actual event on the 29th.  I would suggest making it to the opening on the 28th.  Check their website for all the details.  This is a great event but in my opinion not a great one for day trippers since it is really competition based.  That’s not saying the area is full of caches, but I think participants end up having a lot more fun.

Don’t forget that GeoWoodstock is close enough this year, just make sure to get your hotel room booked soon as hotels are filling up from what I’ve heard.  If you’ve never been to a Mega-Event this is a great one to attend. things start happening on May 21st and end the 25th- the actual event is on the May 24th.

New Geocaching Event Guidelines

I pulled this wonderful synopsis of the new guidelines from a post the Hoosier Reviewer had made and decided (since I was home due to “extreme cold weather”) I’d share it with all of you!

The geocaching guidelines for events were updated today, and a few changes have been made. Here are the important high points:

1. All events, including CITO and “flash mobs” must now have both a start & end time listed on the page. That doesn’t necessarily mean everyone has to disperse and go home at that time, rather it’s to give everyone an idea of a time frame when the event actually will take place. As a general reminder, people are NOT required to stay the entire listed time. Even if someone shows up at the posted event time / location and leaves 5 minutes later, they can log the event as attended. People are not required to purchase anything, or pay for admittance into a venue to log an event. And as before, signing a logbook is NOT required to log as attended.

2. Multiple events or a sequence of events, at basically the same location at the same day and time, or near the same time should now be listed as one single event only. As an example; a day long event with a breakfast event, a BBQ event in the afternoon, and finishing the night out with a bonfire event, all occurring that same day within the general area of the listed main event will no longer be published as separate events. Just list them as separate activities and times within the main single event, with additional waypoints if necessary.

3. All events must meet the Commercial guidelines for normal cache listings. You can include basic information about the location including the name and address. Donations and legitimate costs can be mentioned, but no links to menus or the venue website. If you’re wanting to sell items at an event, only geocaching.com items/trackables can be mentioned on the event page itself. Mentioning event sponsors are OK, but links to those sponsor commercial websites are not allowed.

As a side note, CITO events will not be published immediately before or after an event (or vice versa), at or near that main event location. For example, cleaning up after a picnic event in a park is a normal and expected activity, and should not be a separate CITO event at that location. CITO events should stand on their own.

Thanks,

January 2014 Geocaching Events

Happy New Year!  kind of snuck up on me with all the visiting family and traveling that comes with the holidaze.  Didn’t get as much caching in as I would have liked, but that happens sometimes.

As for events with winter comes weather and sometimes it is frightful outside.  January looks like it will be reminding us what winter is like, so stock up on your French Toast supplies and we ready for some frigid temperatures.  This also causes a fewer number of events, so as of the new year here’s what we have:

November 2013 Geocaching Events

Sorry for the late posting- lots of other stuff going on in my fragile little world.  As the weather turns in Indiana (What is it that they say?  ”If you don’t like the weather just wait wait a few minutes, it’ll change) Geocachers will start going into hibernation and more events will start to pop up.

The two big things going on are the Geocaching in Space Events. The Each events commemorate the launch of a Travel Bug as it  journeys to the International Space Station. Astronaut Rick Mastracchio will use the Travel Bug as a tool to teach students back on Earth about geography and science. He’s scheduled to launch from Kazakhstan in the early morning of November 7, which will be November 6 in much of the rest of the world.

The other one is one of those number things 11-12-13.  So those folks who love making sure they have their calendars filled and special number combinations that only come up every hundred or more years be ready.

September 2013 Geocaching Events

Oh My! Did we really make it through August and the “31 Days of Geocaching”?  While it was fun, I for one am looking forward to a day when I can just drive straight home, instead of taking some crazy route just to find a cache.  I say this with being a lucky one since the monkey doesn’t usually cache near the lair, so I had many more close caches to choose from.  I feel sorry for the folks who cached out their local area and had to travel further a field.

If you are new to geocaching I do recommend stopping by an event and meeting some of the friendly (albeit sometimes strange- & yes, I speak for myself) local cachers.  If you are in Central Indiana, the monthly GiG (Girls in Geocaching) dinner is a great place to start, but every spot has something fun going on sometime.

The biggest event of September is probably the Fall Picnic in Versailles State Park on September 7.  As always the planning committee has lots of fun planned  for everyone including the not to be missed GeoSurvivor competition.  Hope to see everyone there!

Remember you can do this on your own (especially since events get published throughout the month and I am only human) by logging into GC.com and finding the “Newest in Indiana” link.  That will give you the most up-to-date list of Events in the state.

ook! The Wibbly Wobbly 31 days of Geocaching.

ook! Groundspeak announced that August was going to be the “31 days of Geocaching” or some other clever marketing tagline to get people excited. It seems that every day you log a cache you get a special souvenir for the day, and if you get all 31 you get an even specialer souvenir.  All for just keeping a streak going for 31 days.  I decided to do this thing, not try to do it but to do it because some green muppet said “Do or do not, there is no try” then again maybe he said “Easy it is not being green.”  So starting out on August first I began my long trek to finally beat my personal record of 2 days in a row!  It hasn’t been easy, with the start of school and my driver being waylaid with his other job, but I’ve done it.  Well, as I have been getting some nice caches (thanks to those cache owners who have maintained their hides) but I started noticing something that really has gotten me upset-  Time travel caching.

ook!  I've tried blue police boxes, and having guys in red capes fly around the earth really fast, I'm even working on a Lego DeLorean- but the secrets of time travel still escape me.

ook! I’ve tried blue police boxes, and having guys in red capes fly around the Earth really fast, I’m even working on a Lego DeLorean- but the secrets of time travel still escape me.

It seems that some morally upstanding members of the Indiana Geocaching Community are using time travel to find and log caches!  What else would explain people dating their logs for days that haven’t occurred yet?  What upsets me is I’m still working on perfecting time travel and someone out there has the secret and isn’t sharing!

Wait, are you saying that there might be people out there purposely putting down a future date on their log so they can claim that they have actually found a cache for every day in August when they really just found 31 caches in one day?  NO!  That would never happen, no one in the geocaching community is that low, that untrustworthy, that desperate for recognition.  No one is STUPID enough to think that we, as geocachers, really care that much about the bunch of pixels that make up a souvenir to lie.  True Geocachers do not lie (unless the logging instructions at the cache ask us to). Therefore the only reasonable answer to what has been observed is time travel.  So now I need to track this person down and steal their device-  then the world is mine, along with a find on February 29th, and a whole lot of FTFs!
