Mother of All Puzzles

A few times I have stopped to ponder the nature of a cache type I might define as an “epic puzzle.” What exactly would that mean? Certainly some puzzles are extremely difficult and extremely enjoyable, but can you invent something that would legitimately slot alongside the other entries on this website? My thought experiment always […]

Cobalt Zone

The Cobalt Zone

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to geocacher. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between traditional and multi, between terrain and difficulty, and it lies between the cavern of a cacher’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This […]

Mario’s Tower – World’s most difficult Geocache

Note: This cache was archived, but was replaced with a Wherigo placed by a cacher who worked hard to recreate the spirit of this amazing cache. The new cache is Mario Tower (Rebirth).

Fantastically designed containers, complex thinking, wonderful camouflage, problem solving. Certainly a cache can have a 1.0 terrain and qualify as epic. Until this point, however, I had not considered a “terrain-only” cache for the scope […]

Croagh

Eureeka Cache – Croagh Patrick

Epic Check List: √ Amazing, demanding mountain climb √ Insanely historical locations √ Tie to larger-than-life characters √ Water-to-cloud travel √ Breathtaking views √ Great cache   Very few caches worldwide can tick every box on the list above. Last year I had the extremely good fortune to tour the grand country of Ireland. If […]
