What Kind Of Vehicle Do You Drive While Geocaching

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd responded here already, but apparently not.

 

Here's my caching ride, unless it's to someplace I can't ride on this:

2005 Ford Ranger FX4 Level II

I call him BFR Bouncy. ( BFR stands for Bright F@*$&ng Red )

It's my second ranger, and I Love it!

 

Here he is at Amboy Crater Dino Cache

OK, here's the latest cachemobile:

With the price of gas back up to $2.65/gal, it will be nice to get 50mpg.

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.

With the gas prices going up, as stated in an earlier post, I use my mountain bike. Costs no gas, but maybe a twinke or two. :unsure:

Okay, here's mine:

28058_200.jpg

'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!

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

If I have to drive... my 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid, otherwise my feet, or better yet, my old mongoose MTB with GPSr handlebar mount :)

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.

I have a Ford Expedition with a PAlm Lifedrive running TomTom with a Navman bluetooth GPS to get me close. Then I use the 60Cx.

I also have a Infiniti M35x with navigation,

The choices are; 91 Ford Bronco 4x4@ 15mpg if I'm lucky, or 95 Chevy Blazer 4x4@ 20mpg. So the Blazer usually wins out. However when we do the forest caches the Bronco will be used.

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...

For me, I've always dreamed of a 4Runner since I was 13. Now that I'm older, wiser(?) and have a few more dollars to my name, I finally got one. Here is my daily driver and monster-cacher.

I drive a 2002 4wd Chevy Impala. OK, so it's not REALLY 4wd, but IT doesn't know that and so far it hasn't heard my wife yell "We can't go there!" :D

I can't belive I'm the only one that uses a Mercedes. And I don't do just urban caches. I take it down farmers roads and up over some terrain that I probably shouldn'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?

 

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.

I would like to say that I have found a cache in a spot where vehicles are not recommendod. Drove there with a minivan towing a jetski.

We have a Dodge Ram quad cab 4x4 pickup - perfect for winding up difficult dirt roads and bringing extra geocachers along!!!!
