Geocaching Watchlist

As part of my caching experience, I utilize the Watchlist feature on geocaching.com.  For those who are unfamiliar, the Watchlist allows you to receive notifications on a particular cache, be it found, not found, maintenance, or anything else related to the cache.  Any member may send caches to the Watchlist, whereas the Favorites and Bookmarks lists are only available to Premium members.

Several things will prompt me to add a cache to my Watchlist.  Wanting to shoot for an FTF on a cache will cause me to watch a cache.  Perhaps I've found the cache, and want to see what others have to say about the cache.  I'll add it to my Watchlist, and compare and contrast experiences.  Puzzle caches which I've yet to solve go on as well.  Last but not least, if a cache I intend on finding in the near future goes disabled, I'll put it on the Watchlist, and wait for an email notification saying the cache is enabled, before I attempt the find.

I'd like to share with you a cross-section of my Geocaching Watchlist.  Perhaps you have one or more of these caches on your Watchlist, as well.




Located in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, this puzzle cache is only a 3/2 on the ratings scale, but I've been unable to solve the puzzle since the cache was published back in January.  Seeing as it's close to where I travel for work, I'm keeping an eye out to see who solves it, and having it on my Watchlist reminds me I need to solve this buggah.



I first learned of this challenge cache at an event last summer.  The cache owner, TheJump, was discussing the requirements needed to log the find.  Basically, you need to find a cache listed in locale listed on the cache description page.  Once the CO is satisfied you've met the requirements, you receive the coordinates for the final stage.  It's a very complicated challenge cache, and only one find has been logged to date.




Words cannot do this cache justice.  It's one of those caches you have to get out there and find.  The CacheCrazy.com crew found this cache over the summer.  You can read about our adventure here.  It's been found a few times in the months proceeding our experience, and each log echoes the excitement and enthusiasm we felt while hunting this cache down.

A Walk Into Darkness





This puzzle cache is located in Arizona, and has one of the more difficult puzzles I've seen for a cache. I've yet to solve it, and don't know if I ever will.  Finders state you'll never solve the puzzle without help.  It would be nice to solve this one day, as I make it out to Arizona for business from time to time.  If you solve this puzzle, throw me a bone, wouldja?

Good luck with this puzzle.




A newcomer to my list, this puzzle cache in Southeastern PA has piqued my interest.  It's been out there for a few days now, and no one has yet to even solve the puzzle, let alone make a find.  It may be a little out of the way to go for a cache, even by my standards, but it IS for an FTF, after all!


Are there any caches you regularly keep an eye on?
