70 Days of Geocaching – Day 44 – G Clan 5

TEAM_CSG’s quest to fill in month/day combinations where we have never found a geocache. Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS)receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world. (Source: Wikipedia)

G Clan 5 – As we approach the end of 2014, various challenges are expected as we complete our quest.  In addition to darkness coming earlier each day, we can expect less then ideal weather.  Today was no exception.  I attempted a cache downtown over lunch with no success.  Later that afternoon, waves of thunderstorms moved through the Denver area, possibly threatening the quest.  I arrived at ground zero, managing to find the cache quickly between storms.

70 Days of Geocaching – Day 43 – Transformer

Transformer –  Indian summer is upon us on the front range of Colorado, which made for a good caching day.  Sunday errands at the farmers market, coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts, and a trip to Costco, brought us to a park in Westminster.

Carroll Butts Athletic Park is an oasis in the middle of a busy urban area.  The description of this cache mentioned that the prior cache listing was once a multi-stage cache, which I found the last time I was at this park.  I was initially worried that the cache was gone as ground zero was recently painted, but we found it quickly.

vail pass parking – today brought us to the summit of Vail Pass (10,662 feet above sea level) for a ammo can.  We stopped at a truck chain-up area to make this quick find.  For us, this was the highest cache found above sea level.

70 Days of Geocaching – Day 41 – Tribute to

(Source: Wikipedia)

Tribute To –  The her half of the team was able to get away from a resort hotel in Beaver Creek. (Where I was attending a conference). to visit nearby Vail Village, Colorado.  She was able to find a virtual cache in the village, which had a simple logging requirement. “Tell me what you see?”  The picture attached to this post IS NOT what you see at the cache site, but is nearby.

What is a virtual cache? – A Virtual Cache is about discovering a location rather than a container. The requirements for logging a Virtual Cache vary—you may be required to answer a question about the location, take a picture, complete a task, etc… In any case, you must visit the coordinates before you can post your log. Although many locations are interesting, a Virtual Cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit. (from Groundspeak.com)

Shocking #55 – The team returns to its quest on a trip to a conference in Beaver Creek.  We needed to stop at the back in Silverthorne, this cache was mere feet from the bank.  A quick find got us on our way.
