Highlight Geocaches on alternative listing sites
« on: June 17, 2018, 01:50:26 pm »
This thread is for everyone to bring to other’s attention Geocaches that have been placed on listing sites other than geocaching.com. They could be ones you have recently found, enjoyed and want to let other cachers know about. Or could be ones you have seen published that look interesting, or would like to pair up with others to go find. Or, even promote your own alternative cache listings if you are proud of them and want others to know they are there… whilst on Groundspeak’s original geocaching forum it is frowned upon and deemed unnecessary to promote your own caches, alternative listed caches need a helping hand to get them noticed and so go head, it’s fine to do so right here.

Here’s a few examples to get started, you may have to log in to the listing sites to see the listings:

RAF
GE0324
gpsgames.org
Hidden by SoccerFanatics

A traditional type cache hidden in the decaying remains of RAF Chedworth. Lots of old interesting buildings around including some intact air raid shelters.

A couple of mine that have yet to get a FTF yet:

Take A Drink
GA10653
geocaching.com.au

A resurrected geocaching.com Challenge on Crickley Hill, anyone remember those? Originally set by walk tall I think, this is now a Virtual Cache on the Australian Geocaching listing site.

Manic Miner
TC55K7
terracaching.com

Do you dare to go retrieve Miner Willy’s lunch box for him?

...cache is not in the area you might think, it's not even in the same county as the Below Aboves ;)

Was going to stop there again myself a couple of weeks back on way back home, in order to get a required photo for an LC on another caching site. Just my bad luck though, on the way up the hill there was a large lorry broken down right at that spot, so there was no way of pulling in  :( I'm sure I'll pass it again though at some point.

Tried to register for the .au site but had nothing back or does it just happen and you find you can log in?

Can't login but see you have to register on their forum as well, so now waiting for that to be approved!
