Geocaching in the news

Post by Now_To_Morrow » 15 April 24 5:12 am

I had this article shown to me yesterday. Thought I'd share it here:
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2024-04-13/ ... /103704314

They were possibly going after
https://coord.info/GC9D45Q

I'm glad they are all okay. That's one memorable cache adventure for them!

I looked up the app mentioned. https://www.exploroz.com/traveller
Looks like a neat off road, off track, off line idea, but is it worth $60 (android)? Is that due to map prices? Anyone here use/d this app?

If that were the cache, I'd be dark about fracturing my skull going for a 1/1.5 cache!
Hopefully he'll be back in action soon.

I imagine the mother of those kids would be like, "If you didn't already have a cracked skull, I'd crack you one over the head myself!" Haha.
I often wonder how i haven't ended up falling down rocks yet. [Touches wood]. But at least if I died that way I could say I went out enjoying myself. Wait, no I couldn't! Y'all can say it for me. Hahaha.

That's kind of terrifying. Your life can change in a second!

An embarrassing camp story!

I haven't tried that app yet but I might download it and the offline maps for an upcoming WA trip. I need to find out exactly what I'm missing out on by not subscribing as I won't be doing that. This will determine whether I make a purchase or not. The features are nice, albeit expensive. $60 to buy the app PLUS $50 for the privilege to download offline topo maps PLUS a $50 yearly subscription to get full features (iOS). The EOTopo maps are very nice! Check them out.. https://www.exploroz.com/eotopo.

GAIA GPS is a cheaper alternative. I don't use GAIA myself but have only heard positive feedback about it and the feature are similar to EXPLOROZ.

The Cachly app is my main mapping resource, specifically the Cachly PRO offline maps. For my QLD and NSW exploring I rely on Topo GPS for additional map information.



Meanwhile, news in Ireland..

She might wait until he's healed then crack it again!
