Pirate Stash Venom

I have 2 new geocaching-related items to announce.

Tracker Jim’s Pirate Stash

A couple of days ago, my second geocache hide was approved. It’s GCP4BM - Tracker Jim’s Pirate Stash.

This geocache is a 3-stage multi-cache, meaning that the coordinates do not lead you directly to the cache. You must find each of the stages. Each leads you to the next stage. The third stage is an ammo box containing the logbook and trade items.

Tonight someone was the first to log a find on the multi-cache. Since multi-caches take a little more work to find than regular caches, they can sometimes be a little less active. However, that suits me fine as my favorite caches take you to locations that the cache hider wants you to see. And this cache is in what I think is a really fun little location, worth a visit.

Fashion Victim Venom

My other item to announce is that travel bug TBH8M2 - Fashion Victim Venom has been released into the wild! FVV travels with this mission affixed to his hideously-clad body:

Fashion Victim Venom is trying to get to the San Diego, CA area. If possible, he’d like to find a nice cache in Escondito, CA. He’s travelling from the east coast to the west coast, hoping to find his way into the hands of an old friend who has moved out that way. In the process, I hope that Brian (my friend who has moved to Escondito) will find out when Venom makes it to the sunny shores of California and be motivated to become one of us… a geocacher!

That’s right. He’s headed for sunny California. Well, that’s the plan anyhow. I handed him off to Team SimCalc (Ryan and Sara) who placed him in a new cache at UMass Dartmouth. Problem is, no one has found that cache for almost 2 weeks. It’s another multi with a high difficulty rating, so that probably has something to do with it. Such is the way with travel bugs! I am tempted to go grab him out of that cache tomorrow and move him along. We’ll see…
