types of puzzles that you can do or find geocaching......Geocache Types
Traditional Cache - Large Icon Traditional Cache - Small Icon
This is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache" too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page are the exact location for the cache.
The general rule of thumb is, "If you take an item, leave an item, and write in the logbook." Some caches are themed, so make sure to read the description before going on a hunt.
Multi-Cache (Offset Cache) - Large Icon Multi-Cache (Offset Cache) - Small Icon
Multi-Cache (Offset Cache)
A multi-cache ("multiple" involves two or more locations, the final location being a physical container. There are many variations, but most multi-caches have a hint to find the second cache, and the second cache has hints to the third, and so on. An offset cache (where you go to a location and get hints to the actual cache) is considered a multi-cache.
Project A.P.E. Cache - Large Icon Project A.P.E. Cache - Small Icon
Project A.P.E. Cache
In 2001, fourteen geocaches were placed in conjunction with 20th Century Fox to support the movie Planet of the Apes. Each cache represented a fictional story in which scientists revealed an Alternative Primate Evolution. These caches were made using specially marked ammo containers. Each cache had an original prop from the movie. Only a few Project A.P.E. caches exist today.
Mystery or Puzzle Caches - Large Icon Mystery or Puzzle Caches - Small Icon
Mystery or Puzzle Caches
The "catch-all" of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
Letterbox Hybrid - Large Icon Letterbox Hybrid - Small Icon
A letterbox is another form of treasure hunting using clues instead of coordinates. In some cases, however, the owner has made it both a letterbox and a geocache and posted its coordinates on Geocaching.com. If there is a stamp inside a letterbox hybrid, it is not an item intended for trade; the stamp is meant to remain in the box so that visitors can use it to record their visit.To read more about letterboxing, visit the Letterboxing North America web site.
Wherigo™ Cache - Large Icon Wherigo™ Cache - Small Icon
Wherigo is a toolset for creating and playing GPS-enabled adventures in the real world. By integrating a Wherigo experience, called a cartridge, with finding a cache, the geocaching hunt can be an even richer experience. Among other uses, Wherigo allows geocachers to interact with physical and virtual elements such as objects or characters while still finding a physical geocache container. A Wherigo-enabled GPS device is required to play a cartridge. Learn more at Wherigo.com.
Event Cache - Large Icon Event Cache - Small Icon
Occasionally, local geocachers and geocaching organizations designate a time and location to meet and discuss geocaching. After the event the caches are archived.
Mega-Event Cache - Large Icon Mega-Event Cache - Small Icon
A Mega-Event cache is similar to an Event Cache but it is much larger. In order to qualify as a Mega Event, the event cache must be attended by 500+ people. Typically, Mega Events are annual events and attract geocachers from all over the world.
Cache In Trash Out Event - Large Icon Cache In Trash Out Event - Small Icon
Cache In Trash Out Event
Cache In Trash Out is an activity intimately tied to geocaching. While out there on a cache hunt, we collect litter along the trails and properly dispose of it. Cache In Trash Out Events are much larger clean-up events that involve and benefit the larger community.
EarthCache - Large Icon EarthCache - Small Icon
An EarthCache is a special place that people can visit to learn about a unique geoscience feature or aspect of our Earth. EarthCaches include a set of educational notes and the details about where to find the location (latitude and longitude). Visitors to EarthCaches can see how our planet has been shaped by geological processes, how we manage the resources and how scientists gather evidence to learn about the Earth. For more information about EarthCaches, visit http://www.earthcache.org/.
GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit - Large Icon GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit - Small Icon
GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit
A GPS Adventures Exhibit Cache represents attendance at the GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit or a regional variation of this Exhibit. GPS Adventures Mazes are designed to teach people of all ages about GPS technology and geocaching through interactive science experiences.
Grandfathered Cache Types
These are cache types that are no longer available for creation on geocaching.com. Visit the Waymarking web site for other GPS hunting activities.
Virtual Cache - Large Icon Virtual Cache - Small Icon
A virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.
Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.
Virtuals are now considered waymarks on Waymarking.com.
Webcam Cache - Large Icon Webcam Cache - Small Icon
These are caches that use existing web cameras placed by individuals or agencies that monitor various areas like parks or road conditions. The idea is to get yourself in front of the camera to log your visit. The challenging part, however, it that you need to call a friend to look up the web site that displays the camera shot. You will need to have them to save the picture to log the cache. If you’re a tech-head you could use your wireless modem and save the image yourself on your laptop.
Webcam caches are now in the Web Camera category on Waymarking.com.
10 Years! Event - Large Icon 10 Years! Event - Small Icon
10 Years! Event Cache
A 10 Years! Event Cache is a special Event Cache type for events held April 30 - May 3, 2010 to celebrate 10 years of geocaching.
Locationless (Reverse) Cache - Large Icon Locationless (Reverse) Cache - Small Icon
Locationless (Reverse) Cache
Locationless caches could be considered the opposite of a traditional cache. Instead of finding a hidden container, you are given a task to locate a specific object and log its coordinates. A scavenger hunt of sorts, it involves collecting waypoints of various objects around the world.
Locationless caches have evolved into Waymarking. Waymark categories are similar to how locationless caches were listed on geocaching.com, but you can now search for the locations in each category.
what is geocaching? and what to look for....Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.
here is a sample of a cach to find:

A nice, simple park n' grab that's winter friendly. Bring your own writing stick.
Congrats to rottnpagan and lobstersam on the co-FTF
The cache is located on the site of the old Halifax Infirmary. Constructed in 1933, the infimary operated on this site until 1998. It lay dormant for 5 years until the province began calling for expressions of interest in developing the site. After issues with vandalism, squatters and a fire, the province decided to tear down the facility and in 2005 demolition of the buildings began.
Around the same time, consultation began on what should be done with the land the former hospital rested on and several adjacent parcels of land. By the time demolition was complete, three proposals had been brought forth to solicit public opinion on and by the end of 2006 a final report had been prepared.
So what has happened since the report was filed 4 years ago. The last remaining building from the Infirmary, Gerard Hall, is now a Dalhousie University residence and the remainder of the land is a giant parking lot. So I guess the cache location should be safe for at least a little while but at the rate things are going I guess I don't think I'll be around to see what goes here.
This one is winter friendly and please bring your own writing stick.

What I am afraid ofThe darkness thats inside....hiding inside me waiting to break free holding the control over my body...every now and then shows up and takes my breath away jsut to show me that its still alive deep inside me and theres no way to be free from it...only to live with it and pray that as i lay me down to sleep it stays in the darkness and lets me breath the light again....
How I would spend $10,000send my parents half of the money....
get myself some kick ass gps

A bizarre giftchristmas eve open up one gift and found a toilet seat!
another year open up a box and found shit on a stick.....!
how you survive knowning......How do you survive knowning that you carry something inside you that controls you!
How do you survive knowning that every time you lay down to sleep you might not see the light again!
You survive by one step at a time!
You survive by not letting it control you!
You survive by closing your eyes knowning that someone somewhere is there as they send you a breath of fresh air!
You survive by having friends around, to make you smile!
YOU survive mostly knowning that your lucky to be here, you made it this far you can survive anything!
