Geocaching combines two things that I really enjoy, technology and nature. I get to go outside, see beautiful things, and feel like I am part of some sort of secret society of treasure-hunters. Sorry for the large file size, I am still perfecting my compression.

  • Geocaching looks awesome! poison ivy does not.

    How did you ever get into geocaching? (sounds to me kinda like vlogging for outdoors types.)

  • Great vlog, Josh. I like Geocaching too. Do far, I have only done in-city caching which has proven to be interesting. (I live right downtown Chicago and dont have a car, so I have to make do)City Geocaching can be alot of fun actually ... I'll try to vlog it next time I go.

    (also there is rarely poison ivy in ... a subway station, for example :P )

  • I loved the part of the video where you stopped everything and focused on the reflection in the water.

    I, too, would like to know how you got into geocaching. I'd love to start!

  • Sorry for the poison ivy :( Never heard of geocaching before, it looks like a lot of fun! I liked the pool reflection shot and nature shots you did as well :)

    Josh, I was thinking of doing a geo caching vlog the other day. It's probably been a couple of years since I went on my first (and only) geo caching hunt but it was so neat. Who ever thought of starting this was a genius.

    Great video, as always.

  • Don't scratch it!! (alright. you already know that)

    I agree about the filesize, but the end result looks great-- mine would have been a forest of blocky green boxes.

  • There aren't enough details in the video to figure out which cache you were hunting. I've been lucky and have not run into any poison ivy while caching. I may have picked some up in my backyard over the weekend, though.

  • I want to geocache! Can you say that? Is the verb "to geocache"?

    By Blogger Amanda, at 8:40 PM, June 15, 2005  

  • I'd heard of geocaching but never seen it or done it. Looks rad.

  • I've seen another video on this but i liked yours better. Good job. That's a sweet GPS you have.

    By Blogger Nathan Peters, at 1:21 AM, June 18, 2005  

  • Yeah, Geocaching rocks (except for poison ivy part). Really well made video though. I envy your proness.

    By Blogger Ben, at 12:37 AM, June 19, 2005  

  • interesting phenomenon, this geocaching ... nice video ... as for the poisin ivy you should try "jewell weed" ... I've had poisin ivy a skizillion times and this stuff works the best, no kidding, with the added bonus that it makes you're skin green temporarily ... google "jewell weed" and "poisin ivy" ...

  • I had gotten to Geocaching pretty heavy a few years ago then I switched to whitewater kayaking. This summer since I'm out due to shoulder surgery I'll be getting back into geocaching. I have a GeoCaching Page set up on my old personal site at: http://dandbbradley.home.mindspring.com/geocaching.html

    By Blogger Doug, at 3:22 PM, June 20, 2005  

  • Excellent.

    I've only been out geocaching once since my first and last trip; I need to get out there again. The latest attempt was an urban micro ... and as I tried to find it I got stopped by a cop and had to abort. heh.

    Now that it's warm out I have this irrational fear of ticks. I could deal with poison ivy, but I totally freak out if I spot a tick on me. :shudder:

  • wow this is amazing! what a great video and really ignites the fire for geocaching -- better than any TEXT on geocaching ever!!! great music btw

  • *catching up on old videos*

    you know what? i heard about geocaching like 6 months ago and was REALLY excited to do it. i even got my gps unit. (i have the yellow etrex, kinda like yours!)

    i was going to geocache with my sister, but we never got around to it. argh. this video has me excited about it again though. thanks josh for another rad video.

    and sorry to hear about your poison ivy. remember, "leaves of three, let it be!"
