Geocaching with Love

While perusing some geocaching blogs today, I ran across Desert Woodrat's Weblog. In his post, Heart of the Desert, he describes a series of geocaches that are in the shape of a heart! Here's a screen shot showing the geocaches.

Heart Shape Geocache

I know what you're thinking.

It's fake.

Someone Photoshopped the caches onto the picture?



It's real.

Click on the photo and the link will take you to the Geocaching web page. The caches are located northwest of Moab, Utah.

Too cool!

I encourage you to visit Desert Woodrat's Weblog. Do some clicking around there. Many, many excellent desert photos, including some cool petroglyphs. Excellent site.

Puppy Cove Geocache Archived


Our Puppy Cove geocache didn't last very long. It went missing just days after we placed it. I guess there were too many puppy's playing there.  We hid it pretty close to shore, so one of the dogs must have sniffed it out. I thought about placing it inland a bit, but our antique GPSr just isn't that good under tree canopy. It's kind of embarrassing when the FTF sends you the correct coordinates.


We hid a geocache in a nearby park earlier this summer.  It's along a paved trail so it's our first hide that is rated by 


A chair-bound person would have to get someone to make the final grab, but they can get to within 15 feet of the cache. Pretty cool.

Geocaching HooHaa Travel Bug Race

PJ, over on the HooHaa blog came up with a challenge for a bunch of geocaching bloggers.

The Great HooHaa Travel Bug Race.

It's a year-long race to see who's travel bug can travel the farthest in the next year. Here's a list the challengers - with their respective blogs.

Gunny's Hoohaa Race Electric Bug from Gunny’s Cache

HooHaa Race - GoGo T. Urtle from Geocaching Online

HooHaa Race -- Just-A-Nut from Geocache: I’m NOT obsessed… right?

HooHaa TB Race: EMC's Chocolate Chip Cookie from Geocaching with EMC of Northridge, CA

HooHaa TB Race: Geocats Racer from (humbly) Northwoods Geocats

HooHaa TB Race: Hick's World from Geocaching with Team Hick@heart

HooHaa TB Race: Kiss My Cache's Peace Luv and Travel Bugs! from Kiss my cache

Just to be fair, I let the others get a head start. The challenge began on Thursday the 16th, but I held my entry until today, the 21st. Oh some are already traveling, but *yawn* I'm not worried. I dropped our little racer in a geocache just outside the Mall of America, which just happens to be one of the top tourist attraction in the Midwest.

Think our racer won't take off from there?

No contest!
