121 things a Geocacher must do

A few weeks ago my local facebook geocaching group were discussing a list I hadn’t come across before…well, 2 lists actually –ย here’s the link to the first….As the page says, “Some things are cool to try, others are unavoidable no matter if you want to experience them or not. This list compiles 100 things that…

Weekend Away at the Bay

This weekend was mum’s birthday and a weekend away in Port Stephens (north of Newcastle, NSW) was planned to celebrate. While this meant a new area to explore, it also meant minimal caching opportunities, as family time was to take priority (remembering the majority of the family don’t geocache – only dad and I, as…
