Yuma Event #9 in February 2012. I am so there! And I am a day dreamer so my mind goes to other countries also.
To keep things realistic I decided to check out the facts that go along with World caching. I am amazed and excited with some of what I found. I'll share a bit and also supply you with the links to some great sites.
Did you know -
Geocaches are currently placed in over 100 countries around the world and on all seven continents, including Antarctica. After 10 years of activity there are over 1,532,000 active geocaches published on various websites. There are over 5 million geocachers worldwide.This proves that there is more to this Geocaching thing than a few bored people hiding containers with toys.
I found this great link for Europe connections that even shows a map. AND - you can continue to link to all these countries also:
Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Africa, the Near and Middle East, and Russia.
WARNING ! I found a link that could very well induce insomnia to those who generally have good sleep habits. I got on this site, Cacheopedia, and before I knew it the sun was coming up.
I bounced around some much that I found myself having to go back to the very beginning, over and over again, just to get myself back to the subject I was wanted to read more of. Crazy stuff. Fun stuff. Be prepared. ( and if you don't find this site entertaining, please let me know so I can consider the fact that I may be loosing my mind )
I hope you find yourself enjoying these sites. There is way too much to include the info in the body of this post. All links are easy to follow, but I really am not worried about that since we are Geocachers, seekers of hidden objects.
