What Kind Of Vehicle Do You Drive While Geocaching


Recommended Posts

My '97 Boots, Combat Desert, with ??? miles.




They are soon to be retired and replaced by '05 Bellevilles, Combat. That retirement day will certainly be sad.


Like some of our friends, I have photos of my vehicle in action. To save you the download, here are a couple of links to show the vehicle in action-


Here it is at At Water Palace and here it is at Bedrock.

Okay, here's mine:


'89 Toyota 4WD Van (Hence my name!). 27x8.50-14 BFG All-Terrains, 2" lift all the way around, 8" 130W Halogen lights, K&N, Grade/Tilt indicator, GPS (duh!). This thing has surprised alot of people (myself included) with where I can get it into and back out of. It's seen more off-road than 90% of the SUVs on the roads today. Fully loaded LE model with captain's chairs, seating for 7, built-in ice maker (factory), power everything, shorter wheelbase and tighter turning radius than a Toyota Tercel! 335,000 miles and still going strong on the original drivetrain!

The wife rides a Trek Mtn bike and I ride an Appollo, we use these to go to work as well so have put over 2000KM in the last year. Mine has a Ram handlebar mount.

These are the first vehicles of any description we have owned in about 10 yrs. Before we got them it was bus/train/ferry or whatever the public transport was available .

I used to drive one of these when I was 22. Geocaching had not been invented then but we used to use LandNav and SatNav to go places and find things.

It is 2,4 and 6 wheel drive. Can go from 6 gear 120 Km/h to 2nd reverse no problem and weighs 17 tons, not much stops a Ratel.

and to stir things up a bit......the rear


I LOVE IT! Is that a custom job? Where can I get a bumper sticker with that on it?



Yeah, It's a custom job. someone was selling them on Ebay, but I didn't want to wait and had one made locally. Anyone that makes the vinyl decals can make you one. Cost me 15 bucks and 10 minutes.

I belong to the "Just Won't Let Em Die" club myself! I drive a 1984 Ford 3/4 ton. When the diesel engine gave out I coverted it over to a 400ci because it was the only thing remotely workable at the time. Gas was cheaper at that time too. I ride my 1985 Centurion road bike which is competing with the old Ford on mileage.


If I could just get this thing off the moon I think it would rule the geo-mobile sales for a long time...

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?


I have an 2005 Honda Element with all wheel drive B)

As a caching mommy with caching kids, I get around fine in an ancient caching mini-van...when it runs. I guess the caching off-roading wasn't such a good idea;) Hey, it's better than using it just for the grocery store...unless there's a micro in the parking lot.
