GeoDog Reminder! Virtual Cache Example

Don’t forget – next Friday, August 16th you can post your geocaching adventures and link to our linky link to be in the drawing for some prizes!

I want to tell you about a Virtual Cache I found – #GCE840 – Water, Water Everywhere.  Click on the link to read about the cache.

Since this is a virtual cache, there is not a physical, tangible cache here.  Virtual caches generally require you to navigate yourself to a landmark area and then answer very specific questions that you would only know if you had been there.  For this cache, you have to go to a very pretty area, and then email the person who created the cache  answers to 2 questions that he/she posted.

1. Where are you?

2.  What boat is docked to the south?

My photo is actually of the dock where you are supposed to find the cache – you are at the South Street Seaport and the boat to the south is The Peking. The Ambrose is blocking part of it there.

I emailed the owner the answers (I found her email address in her profile) and within ten minutes I had a response saying I was correct!

There you have it!  Easy as pie!  Or, biscuits dipped in peanut butter, or bully sticks, or as my loooove for Wally!  We have one more example to show you of how to play and then you are on your own!  I have been getting some great comments that you are sending your peeps out to find some caches, so keep it up Geofinders!

    Great one Finny! Another hint…since virtual caches are usually found at very recognizable landmark locations, you can often complete the requirements and log the find without the use of a GPS or smartphone, so this is a way for some more of our friends to join in the fun!

    Sounds cool, but what happens if the boat moves? Only thinking this because as a child she went to camp where every year there was a treasure hunt, lovingly put together by one of the leaders and one year the clue was tied to a van which had been there on the day the leader had gone and worked out his treasure hunt however had moved on the day in question – there were lots of very confused kids wandering around in circles that day!
