Why didn’t the skeleton go geocaching? Because he had no guts!
Halloween is quickly creeping upon us. If you’ve gotten caught in geocaching’s web, here are five ways to add a little geocaching to your Halloween — or is it add a little Halloween to your geocaching?
And remember, never go geocaching with vampires — they’re a real pain in the neck.
1. Add a spooky twist to your geocache
Monsters. Fake snakes. Burnt teddy bears. Eerie cobwebs. Pens that don’t work.
Things can get really scary really fast.
2. Find and log a “Ghost” (Virtual) Cache
BOO! Virtuals are often referred to as “Ghost Caches” because of the spirited icon.
Virtual Caches do not involve a physical container, but rather, require you to visit an interesting location then answer questions to earn a find. Previously a grandfathered cache type, a limited number of Virtual caches recently became available again worldwide. There are over 5,200 active Virtual Caches around the world, with new ones added every day.
3. Carve a geo-themed pumpkin
Make your pumpkin spicy with some geo-art. Signal’s face? A Virtual icon? A compass? Go for it!
4. Find a Night Cache
Are you afraid of the dark? Night caches are designed to be found at night and are difficult or impossible to find during the day. Typically a flashlight or UV light is needed to follow reflectors to the final location.
5. Dress in a geo-themed costume
Travel Bug? Ammo can? Soggy logbook? Muggle? Oh, the possibilities are endless!
