Michigan Cachers Hello!

Recommended Posts

Well as if the name doesn't say it already! Another Michigander reporting in. We're just about as far south as you can get in Michigan and dead center as well. Coldwater, MI reporting in. And we've been unofficially made honorary Indiana cachers over the years, since we do SO MUCH caching in Indiana. :laughing:

 

Some would argue that statement. :laughing:

Those proud Indianins! Maybe you should get somebody to make that official! I also am about as far south as you can get in Michigan (5 miles from the border of ohio) thats where Temperance is.

 

P.S. By the way oh ye Indianins, I am coming to visit Wednesday and Thursday! Did you all know that there are only 2 traditional caches and 2 earthcaches in Clifty Falls State Park? hint hint hint :)

So all you need to be an honorary Indiana cacher is a golden ammo can? I bet I could get some gold spray paint. :(

I like caching with people that are easy to pick on.

 

And for the record...that's a GOLD PLATED can, not solid gold....only residents get those...lol. :anicute:

*found on MiGO forums*

 

"Well Saturday Ali KAt hit 500 on a caching two state trip. She has really been pushing us to so that she could get the 500 hundred milestone. She always wakes us up at 7 am on the weekends wanting to go caching and pushes us to dark and if we stop to long she throws a fit and to make things worse she makes us drive her all over and she takes naps on the way to caches when we cant. Now she is already starting on her next goal of 1000 by the time she turns two. "

Greetings from Louisiana,

We will be visiting southwest Michigan in early Nov. (St. Joseph) Is there a list of favorite caches in this area? Any events planned for that time?

 

Thanks, SelgoJA

Hello all!

 

Another Michigander here from Petoskey. Our favorite caching spots are just outside our door as we're in God's country. :D

 

If we had discovered geocaching before our trips to Hawaii, I'm sure that'll be way up there too. Now we have another reason for a return visit. :D

Welcome to MI SelgoJA. Hope you have a nice trip. You might want to direct your question here. http://www.migoonline.org/ I haven't been to the SW area in a while, but someone should be able to give you some feedback. You'll have to set up an account to access the forums.

I am a Michigander at heart, born and raised but transplanted to DelaWHERE. My favorite cache spots were actually in Baldwin (furthest north I cached), and of course Al Sabo in Kalamazoo.

 

I sure do miss the Michigan scenery, but now I live in a state where I can drive 2 hours in nearly every direction and get a cache in another state...and yet I have yet to cache in PA, NJ, VA...I need to get going!

Hello Michigan cachers,

 

We're holding a geo.meetup this weekend (Oct 11 - 12, 2008) in Dearborn for those interested in the intersection of Geocaching and OpenStreetMap. Come and join in the friendly "Show and Share" atmosphere. Details on meetup.com

 

See you there!

 

Geocaching

Geocaching is both a sport and a game. The idea is that people who like this game has hidden caches all over the world and all it takes to find them is the coordinates, a couple of clues and a GPS unit. Once found caches are often like a small treasure. The finder can take something from the treasure as long as they leave something for others to find.

 

Mapping

This group is also for people who are into or would like to know more about mapping for OpenStreetMap. This is another thing to do with your GPS unit.

 

OpenStreetMap is a project aimed at creating and providing free open source map of the world as an alternative to maps from TeleAtlas and Navteq that Google and others use. More than 70,000 people across the world are contributing to OpenStreetMap.

 

We contribute to OpenStreetMap by taking a handheld GPS device out walking either in an urban area or in a park. We record street names and other features, upload this data to a computer and make it into new roads and paths on the map.
