Gotta Find’em All

Over Thanksgiving weekend, my husband and I decided to place a new geocache, our first multi-cache, in town. This cache has been in the works for a while, since it was initially inspired by my brother’s online store: The Last Lucky Egg Store (Instagram: @lastluckyegg). We were both excited about the new app, Pokémon Go, which has since fizzled out a bit, and I wanted to create a geocache using his inventory. Well, I finally ordered, received, planned and hid the items…now to wait for the FTF.

I’ve attached a few pictures below this post of the cache’s goodies and the trek’s scenery. From the parking lot to stage one to stage two and back to the parking lot, a geocacher will walk about one mile. Unfortunately, we just received snowfall this past week in western North Dakota, so the search will take a little more time, and I’m guessing I won’t be receiving a logged FTF email quite as quickly as usual. But! It will be well worth the hike, especially if the cacher feels like they gotta find’em all!

The original stash included: Pokémon figures, rose-colored diamonds, logbook with official geocaching pencils, three necklaces (one for each team, aka Mystic, Valor, and Instinct), two Pikachu plushes, one Charmander plush, and one of my activated trackables.

North Dakota has 65 multi-caches as of 12/1/2016, in case you were curious. I’ve only found 6 multi-caches at the time of this post. My favorite multi-cache is one in Williston, The Road to Erudition, which is a three-stage cache ending in a library, a very creative and fun adventure.

Are you an active Pokémon Go trainer? Do you have a favorite multi-cache? What are the most stages you’ve found in search of the final stage in a multi-cache? How many multi-caches have you found to date?
