Louisiana GPS Geocache: “Spillway TP” 8-23-01
We (me and Bobby Jr) placed our sixth Louisiana Cache today, and we met a writer and a photographer for the New Orleans Times Picayune newspaper that were getting information about GPS Geocaches for an article in the Living Section of the newspaper!
This cache has the following items in it:
A Geocache Description Note
A Logbook and Pens
A Pocket Multi-Tool and Holster
Fresh AA Batteries
A Smashed Railroad Penny From Another Cache Trip
This Cache Is Gone:
The Cache Location Is:
030° 02.118 N
090° 23.396 W
Todays cache container (above) is a wide mouth insulated Coleman container we painted black. These caches are part of a worldwide game dedicated to GPS (Global Positioning System) users, called GPS Stash Hunting, or Geocaching. The game basically involves a GPS user hiding “treasure”, and publishing the exact coordinates so other GPS users can come on a “treasure hunt” to find it.
The only rules are: if you take something from the container, you must leave something in the container, and you must sign the logbook. The real treasure is the hunt, and being able to find it and sharing that with others by your logbook post. Finders self photos are posted on this web page from the camera in the cache!
