page is dedicated to homemade
geocaches that I have stashed throughout the
state. As I start hiding them in other states, I will update
the page accordingly.
what is a geocache? Geocache is a derivative of 2 words- GEO
from geography, and CACHE, which is something that is hidden,
such as treasure, food, supplies, etc. The owner of a geocache,
sets out a cache with items placed inside, among which is
typically a notepad and pencil. Using a GPS, the coordinates
are noted and then placed on the internet, and geocache hunters
try to locate the geocache based on the coordinates given.
They then log their name in the notepad and take some of the
items left in the geocache and replace them with items they
brought. Here's more information on geocaching.
geocaches are slighty different from the usual geocache. I
incorporate geocaching in with my 4-wheeling adventures. As
a result, most of the geocaches I have hidden require a 4-wheel
drive to get to. In some instances, a 4-wheel drive and a
hike. Also, I do not give directions on where to go to start
the hunt. All I will give are the GPS coordinates and the
elevation. With that having been said, I will post pictures
of the geocache site as well as the surrounding area. If you
can get to within 50 yards or so of the cache, the pictures
will help guide you in. No extreme 4-wheeling is required
to get to my caches. I have a stock Pathfinder that I use
on all my 4-wheeling outings. Most of the roads that I 4-wheel
on can be found in DeLorme's
Colorado Atlas and Gazetteer. By locating the
coordinates I give on the geocache site, and looking in the
Atlas, you can figure out which road I went in on. That's
the only hint I will give you.
difference between my caches and the typical geocache- the
typical geocache will use a plastic container such as Tupperware
to hide the cache in. They then hide the plastic container.
Not my geocaches. I build my geocaches to look like rocks
and boulders. Here's how I make homemeade
geocaches. The inside of the boulder is a plastic
jar which is the cache container. Simply turn the boulder
upside down to access the screw-on lid. To me, just setting
out a Tupperware container doesn't seem much of a challenge.
Again, with that having been said, I will take many pictures
of the geocache boulder at various angles and of the surrounding
area and post them on the site. Simply print out the pages,
a color printer helps, and go hunting. You will know what
the boulder looks like and where it is. I want to make it
challenging, but still give you a sporting chance.
you feel my caches are too tough or don't abide by the rules,
then please don't go looking for them. They aren't for you.
However, if you feel you're up for a challenging adventure,
please try to find them and leave the details of the find
in the logbook and send me an email. I'd love to hear of your
- please read this...

guarantees as to the absolute accuracy of the information
presented here. This page contains my own personal description
of geocaches I've hidden and the locations, and so may
differ from your experience of the geocaches if you go
hunting for them. I try to place geocaches only on Federal
and Government owned land, but I can never be 100% sure
of the ownership of the land that I am on.
