Caching in Iraq

20 posts in this topic

Greetings from Baghdad - yes, I'm deployed.

 

I've decided to put together an Event Cache here in Iraq (GC1QMWT). I'm casting the net far and wide for assistance in both support and networking for more support. I'm looking for any geocaching stuff to raffle, give, use to make this event a good one - swag, unactivated coins/TBs, activated trackables, containers, etc. Anything you can do would be very much appreciated.

 

If you're interested, please contact me and I'll shoot you my mailing address.

 

Thanks!

But wait until you get home and find a monster cache behind a guard rail and all that training comes back. Roadblocks 600m fore and aft 9 line UXO reports and yell at your friends to hit the deck and scanning the horizon for a triggerman or camera.

I was there from 03-04 as an MP. I am hoping these Cashes would all be located in Safe Secure areas where Insurgants could not leave their own little trinket for a unsespecting fellow GeoCasher

All caches that I'm aware of are hidden on coalition installations with limited, controlled access. I don't need a smiley bad enough to look outside the wire. Those babies tend to find you!
