70 Days of Geocaching – Day 48 – DPL Series: The Hitchhiker’s Guide

Not a spoiler

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.

DPL Series: The Hitchhiker’s Guide – Our luck continues with the weather this month as I was able to take an extended walk to another in the series of Denver Public Library caches. The cache is listed as a ‘Letterbox Hybrid’. Different then the traditional cache, the container has a rubber stamp and ink pad.  The idea being you would exchange stamp impressions. This is a very small library located in the Santa Fe Arts District.  The cache is right out in the open at the front desk.  “Don’t Panic” if you do not find the logbook right away. that is part of the challenge.

Nothin’ Fancy -exactly the type of cache I needed today, quick, isolated, and near the bus stop. An Altoids tin in good shape was waiting at ground zero.   Bonus was it is on the edge of a prairie dog colony.   Them doggies is noisy.

Golden Travels – today was a travel day as we visited a few farmer’s markets in the Platteville area.  While traveling back down highway 85, we stopped in a little used rest area to pick up this small cache.

DPL Series: A Look at the Past – With another series of storms headed for the Denver area today, I attempted a cache just north of the downtown area,. Today I visited  The Blair-Caldwell Public Library, for a cache hidden in the Library.  This cache is one in a series of library-cacher partnerships in Denver.  Requirements for this cache involved exploring the museum on the second and third floors.  Amazingly, the cache is in plain sight, and no one paid attention to me.
