Favorite NC Caches

Postby wvangler on Thu Jun 16, 2011 3:25 pm

My brother living in Charlotte and being a geocacher gives me a little experience in NC caching.

Here are a few of my favs:

GC1M62N - Don't Break It
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=b1f490ae-afeb-40ae-804d-a0035ce450a9
Finding the cache here is easy. Getting the log out is :brickwall:

GC19P08 - Shepardsfind -vs- Therapaing
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=b481589f-ed08-4443-aa52-df05274db675
Micro's in the woods suck immensely since most of the time there is no real reason to make people suffer that much. Woods are for fun hikes and great views. City streets are for hard to find nano's. That said, if you're gonna do it, do it right. This is by far the most ridiculous nano hide in the woods I've ever found. Dripping in evil. But "BY GOD" I found it.

GC1FEQX - Easy Red
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=2af9e5d9-79e5-4951-b08a-0c0e44192ad0
Only 2 favorite points issued to this one. Most don't appreciate the humor in it. A giant 50 mm ammo can painted red, hanging on a tree limb with a big sign mounted over top stating "Geocache" with an arrow pointing down to the can. All this within 0.15 mile of Shepardsfind -vs- Therapaint...on purpose. That's brilliant.

GC2MXZM - *some assembly required
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=3415be0d-5883-493f-ac2b-37798602c96d
Not since Gadgets at Deckers Creek have I seen this much attention to detail. If this gadget had been incorporated into "Gadgets" it would surely be everyone's favorite. The fact that the CO even did up the field puzzle in 3 languages takes the cake.

GC2KRCV - Absurd Machine
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=34693fef-10d7-4e60-afea-0757672b31b7
This is the cache that inspired me to create the Cache Cannon cache in Cato Park in Charleston.

GC2J98Y - All Strung Out Again
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=d6682438-b147-4206-bc5b-f7a24d944adf
I've seen this concept in action before, but not to this level. I'm currently working on copying this cache in West Virginia.

GC24D3N - Spaghetti Logic
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=f767b8bd-7c71-4bb5-a8e7-e159b9d2d37d
This one was nuts. It impressed me so much I had to bring the concept back to West Virginia...hence "Federal Bureau of Geocaching" was born near Cato Park in Charleston. :cool:

GC1A5C8 - Venom
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=8fb6add2-1aa5-4ab3-97c8-962b88781d9f
Evil. That's just evil. I recreated this cache in Spencer, but it got destroyed and I archived it. I have yet to recreate it for a second revival.

GC1DTBE - Tree Whisperer
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=2cdd0b24-63c9-410e-a424-053c62ae4640
You will either get this field puzzle figured out quickly or you will grow a beard trying to figure it out. Sneaky.

GC2NWQC - The Book of the Dead
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=b09063f3-fb34-421e-a5dc-8cbeba6e0a04
Milestone multi cache for me. This was the most fun I've had crawling through a series of culverts ever. But I have yet to do Lost Treasure of the Confederates yet :smile:

It's apparently in a state of disrepair! On my watchlist - will check it next time down.

GC175HV - Athena's Curse - This cache was once described as "Disneyland for Geocachers" and it certainly lives up to it. It is a night cache that has 10 stages. Each stage has a puzzle to solve and a physical challenge. It is all set within the Greek Mythology theme.

GC6A02 - Bradley's Bottom - This tops Cteam's list of 'Caches they will never forget' and it tops my 'caches I want to forget'! No matter how you look at it, it will be memorable!

GC15A23 - Bridal Veil Bottom - A 4.5 mile round-trip walk/bike/ride to an amazing waterfall. There is a scene in The Last of the Mohicans where Daniel Day-Lewis walks behind a waterfall to a hidden rockhouse. THIS is that waterfall! There is also an earthcache at the falls.

GC2A30 - God Kissed the Earth and called it Asheville - A kind of touristy multi cache but I remember enjoying the location of the final.
