Labcaches Overview

37 posts in this topic

The cache type "Lab Caches" started in 2013. Many MEGA-Events since then have 5, 6, 8 or 10 Lab Caches.

After some days or weeks the Caches expired. If You dort have one of a serie, ther is no Chance to find the informations backwards.

Is there any List or Compilation where all Lab-Caches series are collected?

I need to update it with the latest ones, but look here.

 

Thank you.

I send you a list of some more labcache-series to complete your great compilation.

Maybe we get a complete list step by step.

You do not have the outdoor expo at Comcast Arena in Everett or the University of Washington campus tour which had 3 different campuses. You do have the Puyallup Fair though I see.

 

Email me if you want to get a list somehow. FYI, I can make a GPX file but some of the data I had to create myself but you get the general idea, name and rough coordinates. Or, do you just need the lab link?

 

GEAR Passport Booth Crawl. 10 of them in Everett, WA. Only 44 people learned about it to participate.

 

The Whole U Scavenger Hunt Bothell. 5 of them, only 15 participated.

 

The Whole U Scavenger Hunt Tacoma. 5 of them, 15 participated.

 

The Whole U Scavenger Hunt Seattle. 6 of them. 110 participated.

Thank you for the informations. The list has no deeper sense, but it's result of the 'hunter and gatherer' in me. First I wonder, why Groundspeak don't offers a labcache-list. Then I start collecting it for myself. And then I saw at different places, forums etc. the request for a labcache-overview, so I open this thread.

The easiest way to complete the list would be to send me the URL of the series, I don't have. If you replace the "Detail" in the URL with "DetailAsGPX" you will automatically get the GPX-file of the serie as download-file.

I'm glad I found this thread. There are two sets that I have found but do not see listed in this thread, and would greatly appreciate if someone can create the gpx file for them so I can update my GSAK finds DB.

 

I don't see the ones from the GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit - Corvette Museum on 1/18/14 http://coord.info/GC4R6PT or from GeoWoodstock XIII on 5/23/15 http://coord.info/GC54840

Here are some local ones we had not advertised on the main labs one

Thanks for the information.

It's a pity that there is no official list of ALL labcache-series. Why must it be so intransparent?

Perhaps because of rampant fake logs?

 

I recently attended the 14th Geocaching Hampton Roads mega event here in Virginia. Due to a tropical storm lingering nearby, attendance was low, only 148 teams have logged their attendance so far. Yet somehow, according to the leaderboards, the lab caches were found over 550 times. Clearly the code words are being handed around so that people can score ten free finds without consequence.

 

I had fun finding the actual lab caches. I don't know what portion of that positive experience carries over to merely typing in a code word and getting +1 to a find count, but I think it's pretty disappointing. It's this same cavalier attitude that geocachers used to cheat on virtual caches, leading to many, many virtual caches getting archived. Perhaps continued abuse will lead to the end of lab caches. Not that the cheaters care, but the rest of us probably should.

Perhaps, and the fact that Groundspeak probably does not need to advertise worldwide a tiny little 6 hour event in a small town in Washington state as opposed to a Mega event where folks will travel to it. But yes, if it was advertised more, it would likely get more virtual logs. There are a few other ones out there active right now, but I generally just post the past ones.

Does someone know some new links?

 

Yes, are there any new Labs coming out? Only see one on the SITE and its in Germany.

 

There are no other ones? That can't be right, can it? if so where would I look to build one?

Hi there,

Lab Caches are also associated with most Mega-Events and Giga-Events (at the event hosts' choosing). A complete list of those upcoming events can be found here: Upcoming Mega-Events. There is no longer a separate list of Labs associated with Mega-Events or Giga-Events.
