  1. Hello everyone! I am making a GeoTour and I thought it would be cool to get some custom Geocoin/challange coins for a reward when completed. I made a really cool one that I liked but the price came out to be over $500 for 125! (not including the TB codes!) :surprise: I know that custom coins (especially Geocoins) are going to be expensive no matter what, but does anyone know about a good website that I could get a lower price? Thanks! -Dennis

    Let's see if I've got this right.  At the end of playing the Wherigo, the final zone is where "final" is located (which they sign) and then you also direct the player (with coordinates?) to an additional waypoint/cache to help "prove" they completed it?

    No, I made it so that the cartrige directs the cacher to the final stage, a physical. I also listed the waypoint (that doesn't show the coordinates, just where it is) on geocaching.com


  3. Hello! On my Wherigo, at the end I added a cache that is listed as a waypoint and is required to be found in order to be marked as complete, but there have been a few people that did the cartrige that refused to do the cache at the end. If it is listed as a waypoint, shouldn't it be a requirement to be found? It's like finding the first stage of the multi but not the second stage and marking it as found. Shoudn't it be a requirement to find it? Thanks! -Dennis

  4. Hello everyone! I created this topic for crazy things people do when geocaching. Have you ever seen "that guy" that finds that film canister walking backwards or does a handstand while signing the log? On a dare, I once brought my tuba with me while caching. at my friend's "suggestion". I'd be interested to hear what you have to say, so if you've seen sompthing crazy, pipe up! Thanks! -Dennis

  5. Hello everyone! I have been having a little trouble with my Wherigo cartrige. Some people can't download it at all while it works just fine for other people. I've noticed that a lot of the people that are having trouble are using android devices though. Can I please have some help? Thanks! -Dennis

  6. Hello! I was just wondering if anyone had any pointers on creating a beacon cache. Is it possible to put a cache on a train or car? If so, what would I need to make one? I am not planning on making one anytime soon (maybe someday I will make one) but it may be cool to figure out how to do it.


    Thanks! -Dennis

    While it would require both power and an internet connection (wired or wireless), I like the idea of setting up a PTZ 'network' camera and requiring the user to manipulate it (using a standard browser, not proprietary camera app) to visually locate information within the camera's field of view necessary to obtaining the coordinates for another stage or a final for a cache.  Some of these can be set up for temporary lock-out use such that multiple users aren't conflicting for control at the same time.  A decent PTZ (especially the Z = real optical zoom) aren't cheap, though ($160+).  Could work with just pan/tilt but would be a lot more fun if the operator had to zoom in on things to find the answers.


    I think I found a cheap one that is just what I'm looking for. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Wireless-Security-Camera-System-Outdoor-360-degree-WiFi-PTZ-Camera-1080P-Full-HD-4x-Optical-Zoom-Pan-Tilt-Zoom-Night-Vision-White/422058022
