What Kind Of Vehicle Do You Drive While Geocaching

Recommended Posts

I last posted to this thread in 2007 - I've updated to an FJ Cruiser recently - excellent geocaching vehicle!

I was using a BMW Z3 and Saab 97X, but about a month ago picked up a Jeep Wrangler Sport, which is fantastic for the forest service roads in my area.

2000 Oldsmobile Bravada with all-wheel drive and traction control. I guess it's now a classic since they don't make Oldsmobiles anymore. :blink: I also use an old Raleigh 10-speed bike with a GPS platform on the handlebars for urban caches.

 

I use to drive a 98 olds Bravada, but then my daughter just crashed it during our last snow storm. Now I have to find something else to drive.

Since I mostly cache while traveling I use my 21' motorhome and an electric assist bicyble I find there is getting to be more and more caches hid in RV parks by retirees all the time.

Some of these are pretty incredible! That Xterra of Ramness is wicked!

 

I have a 1993 Ford F-150 my grandpa gave me. My dad has a 1987 Blazer. It's all lifted and everything... but it doesn't work right now.

 

Other than that I've used my feet ;)

 

What I'd really like is a vehicle with a shorter wheel base that was lifted a little bit, but that will have to come later.

Having open heart surgery, wife had a stroke, loosing 3 tendions in right shoulder roto-cuff, being 86 has changed things. Sold the Piper Archer, two boats and two bicycles. Gave my son a Toyota Four-Runner. My grandson, my golf clubs, fly fishing equipment,and a Honda 250 Big Ruckus. Gave my granddaughter and her husband our Road-Trek van type RV. We now use a 2000 Land Cruiser and a relative new Scion t5 that gets about 33 mpg on the road, about twice the mpg that we get in the Land Cruiser. We can no longer go on any long or difficult hikes so do most of our geocaching on caches fairly close to the road. Take the Land Crusher if the wx is bad or we think we might be on some back roads. We enjoy traveling and geocaching along the road and smaller towns. Dick & Arlene Bremerton, WA

I use a '95 Ford Explorer 4x4 which I have gotten stuck in fine northern Nevada sand twice. Some guys never learn! Really, I prefer to hike as long as it is mostly horizontal. Around here, often it isn't!

Just wondering what kind of vehicle do people drive while Geocaching. Do you have 4x4's for the off-road cache's? Are there road warriors that mainly stick to the ones that you can drive right up to, or hike back?
