Geek-O-Cache

Let's do a geocache-style scavenger hunt! If you are new to geocaching, then you are missing out! It's a real-life treasure hunt using GPS devices to find hidden containers. (For more information check out http://www.geocaching.com/guide/) Prizes for the team that scores the most points!

You (or at least one person on your team will need a GPS device of some sort. If you don't have a handheld GPS of your own, most smartphones can download an geocaching app. (c:geo is a good one, and it's free!) we'll be in the woods on a summer afternoon, so wear comfortable walking shoes and bug spray would probably not go amiss!

This is a pay-to-play event; we're asking each player to donate 1$ to cover prize and material costs. We will meet at 11:30 at the Nature Lodge (marked with a star on this map: http://parks.westchestergov.com/images/stories/pdfs/CLP_trail_map.pdf). Parking is limited near the lodge, so carpool if possible!

    I have a conflict and don't think I can make it. Sounds like tons of fun though - - I hope I'll get another chance!

      As Marja and I scouted locations for this one we came up with ideas for a second event

    So bummed. This sounds like so much fun, but I have to take care of some family thing and I won't be able to come on Sunday. :-(

    Hey, that evening is my cabaret concert in the City, so I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this too. We'll see, though!

    Any idea approximately how long this will take?

      Seamus and I did a run-through today. Having a map, and knowing the most efficient route, we hit every site and returned to start in about 2 and a half hours (walking along at an unhurried pace). We plan on giving everyone 3 hours and do not expect all groups to reach every single cache. Scoring will be point-based with many opportunities for bonuses, so the winner may not be the one with the most finds.
