NEPA Blogs: PA Live! Blog of the Week: CacheCrazy.com

We interrupt your regularly scheduled WHY NOT WEDNESDAY blog series for this very important announcement!
NEPA Blogs will be presenting a "Blog of the Week" on the WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.


Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is CacheCrazy.com (http://www.cachecrazy.com/).

Geocaching is an enormously popular but relatively new sport. To put it simply, it's like a huge game of hide-and-seek using GPS (Global Positioning System) locators. "Caches" are hidden objects, usually in weatherproof containers, whose locations are given with GPS coordinates of latitude and longitude. Sounds simple, right? Not so fast! To make things more fun, the coordinates are sometimes encrypted in games, riddles, or math problems. And sometimes the coordinates only get you in the ballpark, and additional clues need to be followed to locate the cache.

So what's the point? It's not so much the finding, but the seeking. Geocaching is a way of getting others to explore exciting locations, challenge their skills at hiking, climbing, and problem-solving, and view vistas that they might not otherwise have seen.

For years I suspected that there must have been a blog in Northeastern Pennsylvania dedicated to this sport, but I didn't actually discover it until a few months ago - and then learned it had been active since 2010! CacheCrazy.com is a site dedicated to geocaching. It was created by a blogger from NEPA who goes by the name of "Bloodhounded," but now has regular contributions from a group of bloggers who share his love of geocaching. It's full of stories of geocaching adventures, hints and tips,  and upcoming geocaching events.

If you're not involved in geocaching, odds are you know someone who is.  If you're at all interested in this fun and exciting sport, give CacheCrazy.com a visit and learn more about it! You'll be glad you did!

A big THANK YOU to Harold from NEPA Blogs for selecting us to be the featured blog and he did awesome with representing our sport as well. 
Great job!
