Urban Cache: Ten-Two Hundred

Volume 8, Issue 104; 20 Jul 2005; last modified 08 Oct 2010

After a full day of face-to-face meetings, I decided what I really needed wasn't a couple of hours of email, it was a long walk. There are ten or so caches within a mile or two of my hotel, so I set off.

After a full day of face-to-face meetings, I decided what I really needed wasn't a couple of hours of email, it was a long walk. There are ten or so caches within a mile or two of my hotel, so I set off to find Urban Cache: Ten-Two Hundred. (No map for this trip as it defeats the purpose of a multi-cache and is a bit of a giveaway for an urban location anyway.)

This was my first multi-cache. Stage one was pretty straightforward.

(I've blurred the details, find it yourself :-)

Stage two was a longish walk, but pleasant enough. Stage three, the ultimate goal, was right where it was supposed to be. Somewhere between my hotel and the cache, I lost my pen, so I'm afraid I couldn't sign the log book.

Stages two and three are in a nice park in Bellevue.

Maybe I'll look for another tonight. [Update: I didn't.]

Comments

Sorry to disrupt normal commenting procedure. I wanted to leave you some feedback but the cgi appeared to be busted.

Anyway I am interested in getting geographical data in XML(ish) format on the web. But I am more interested in embedding it within blogs wikis and html than in seperate XML files. As such I have become interested in XBL and most recently XBLinJS. I am not so worried about authentication, because I see the best way of search them being google and other search engines (if we can convince them) so page ranking and credibility can be used.

I have a diary that detail my initial fumblings. I shall look at what you have done and see what I can learn.
