I recently went on a trip to New York for the World Maker Faire. My plan was to make a bunch of wooden nickles that resembled Geo Coins and put them in several different Geo Caches across New York andÂ Toronto.
The problem was that ALL of the caches that I tried to find in New York where either missing or micros. It looks like ManhattanÂ was a very poor place to go Geo Caching. I only went to 10 different caches before I ended up giving up. I was not able to place any trackables in any Geo Caches in New York.
Adventure Box is a project that creates a magical and inventive experience inside of a custom built intelligent toy vending machine filled with unique toys and enough techno-wizardry to bring the machine to life with lights, sounds, and lots of Adventure!Â http://makerfaire.com/pub/e/9160
After New York I traveled toÂ Toronto for three days to visit some friends. I found many more Geo Caches bigÂ enoughÂ for my wooden nickles andÂ generallyÂ had a much better time Geo Caching.
- Big Red Canoe -Â Added 5x Geo Coins abluestar.Com/t #80,#38,#85,#84,#91Â It took me a while to fine but I found it
- Out Standing -Â Quick find, left three ghosts and a laser cut pendent. Too small to add the Geo Coins
- Barnstokkr and Sigmund -Â Left 5 Geo Coins, abluestar.Com/tÂ #73, #88, #81, #43, #33
Some of the coins have started to get comments on the tracking site but most of them remain blank. It has only been a few weeks so I am stillÂ hopeful,Â but I think the extra effort of going to my website puts most people off from recording the new locations of the Geo Coins.
I am going to run a Info session on Geo Caching at the Vancouver Hackspace onÂ Tuesday 16th Oct, 2012 where I will get to meet a lot of the other local Geo Cachers in my area. I hope to learn a lot from them and maybe I will revisit this project again with some new ideas.
