A couple I have done that were fun. First was a military themed one.
Here is the hint givin to help you
Our sons best friend is heading overseas with the Air Force.
We decided to place this cache to coincide with his tour.
The cache has patriotic themed trade items in it. If you can stay with the theme that's great!
There are two log books included, one to log your find and one that you can write a short note of support, thanks, encouragement or whatever to my little Air Force buddy!
We will give this book to him upon his return to the states.
Support our Troops magnet
Red white and blue pencils and erasers
Mini flag banner
Red white and blue rubber bracelets
You are looking for a plastic jar that is approx. 10"x6"
The other was riddle type one that was fun as well.
Here was its hint.
This is a very accessible site, with flat paved paths. It is on the campus of Midland Lutheran College. One of the features is an arboretum. If you bring a dog, you must bring a poop baggie and clean up.
This is a multi-leg (3) virtual cache, with some riddles and things you need to look for. Each of three coordinates has two questions you need to answer. Please stay on the paths - You do not need to leave the paved paths to find any of the answers. E-mail us with the answers (email@example.com), do NOT post the answers here, even if encrypted.
The first riddle (at the starting coordinates) is: #1. "I am in a tower. I am not a clock, but I can make noise. What am I?" #2. Now look around you - what breed of dog do you see mentioned?
Next is N41 26.211; W096, 29.261 #1. "Many people think I am aesthetically interesting, some folks do not understand me. What is my title?" #2. Now look around you without walking - what celestial object can you see mentioned?
Next and last is N41 26.255; W096 29.360 #1 What is the Latin name for this dwarf evergreen? #2 Walk approx (give or take a few feet) 100 feet east - what legendary music figure of the 50's last name is written here? Give the first name also.
Geocaching to me is just a great way to pass some time with family members on nice days. Its not about what you can get or give. Some of my favorites are just the ones where after finding the cache to just sign the note and get back to geocaching.com to log it.
