The other interesting activity that we did at the event was work on the "Bring A Friend (Or Two)" geocache. This is a special cache requiring an initial step with smartphones to obtain directions to the cache container. This step is for at least 3 people to gather at the designated spot and visit the GeoMob website with location-enabled web browsers. Once the GeoMob website detects that at least 3 devices are connected, it spits out the info. Anyway, we got the info and then I went to the final cache site with my group. (Once we had the info though, we could've gone to the cache site individually but visiting the cache in a group would be keeping in the spirit of the cache.) It was fun and a bit different from the usual.
On Sunday, I went geocaching in Northeast Philadelphia and Eastern Bucks County, in Croydon, Bristol, and Falls Township. I actually seemed to have picked some of the most challenging geocaches for the day's adventure, so that was exciting. "Garysaurus?", "Fresh Cache", and "Indian Creek Park Cache" were all placed in such a way that even though you could plainly see the cache, retrieval required some out-of-the-box thinking. Fortunately, I had or could find the tools I needed. Actually, in the case of "Garysaurus", my car was the tool. I parked directly under the cache and climbed up on the hood to get just enough height to get the cache. (No idea what people passing by on Route 13 thought when they saw me do that!) "Where I Go in Bristol, PA" is a Wherigo cache where one has to do a number puzzle with the Wherigo app in the field to get the coordinates. "Don't Get On The Bus" was in a terrible spot and it was obvious why many people, including myself, gave up on this cache previously. It's at an overflowing trash can by a bus stop. I was lucky this time that I happened to touch the cache almost right away because, even with gloves, I was not going to run my hands all over the trash can holder.
