Locationless Caches

Locationless?  How can a cache not have a location?  I had heard of these, but never really looked into them until "The Bad Cop" asked his Geocaching Question of the Day about them back on December 12.

A locationless cache is kind of like a virtual cache.  There is no physical cache to find and sign a log.  These are also called reverse caches.  Instead of the cache owner giving you the coordinates for you to find ONE location, you are given an object to find and YOU must supply the coordinates (and usually a picture).  For instance, you might be asked to find a statue that looks like a real person on a sidewalk.  Most of these cache owners will only allow one specific location to be used once, meaning that you and your caching buddy can't log the same statue. Also, you can normally only log a find on a cache once.  It wouldn't be any fun if you logged every statue in town and ruined it for everyone else, right?

LCs were banned on before I got into caching, but there are plenty on  These have basically been re-introduced to in the way of World-wide Challenges.  The nice thing about the LCs on is that the person who owns the cache still maintains ownership of it and has the right to delete bogus logs and can edit it if need be.

I have found a few of these and I have ideas of where to look for others. While these can be fun to do, I personally have a hard time searching through the hundreds that are listed on  (A site overhaul is coming soon.)  In the meantime have been "pinning" the ones I'm interested in onto a Board on Pinterest for quick and easy reference.  Feel free to repin these onto your own boards.

I even posted my own LC the other day called "I've Been Everywhere (Texas)".  If you live in Texas or are visiting our great state, be sure to check this one out as you travel to various cities.  I will try to cross out the ones in the song that get used.  Each cacher can log it once and each city/town can only be logged once.

Some of the LCs ask for the Google Street View pictures to log a find.  That's ok if they ask for that, but I personally feel like I should go to the location if I am going to log it.  But hey...that's me. I don't want to get into armchair logging. As with most other areas of geocaching, you play the game like you want.  There are very few set-in-stone rules.

Things I Have Learned About OneNote

I have spent a couple of years looking for that planner peace and have not been able to stick with any certain planner for more than a couple of months. Either the planner is too bulky to carry around or it's too small to fit all the info (and my ever-growing sticker collection) or it doesn't allow me to easily add extra pages, etc. So, I have been working in Microsoft OneNote to create a dynamic Digital Bullet Journal and I have learned several things along the way.  #digibujo  
I will share some things with you that I have figured out with trial and error that might save you some hassle. This info applies to OneNote in general, so even if you don't plan or journal, stick with me.
First and foremost, OneNote has several versions.  Each will look different and have various functions.  The most robust and feature-rich is the OneNote 2016 program for the desktop. Then there's the OneNote "app" for Windows 10. It does not have all the functions of the 2016 progr…

Getting My House In Order

I'll be the first one to confess that I am NOT the world's best housekeeper. I have been a single mom of my 18-year old "baby" since he was just a couple of months old and it hasn't always been easy. As a matter of fact, I think the toddler was more tidy than the teenager. He has a habit of opening cabinets and not closing them, dropping things on the floor wherever he happens to be, leaving items on the counter and so on. After lots of arguments and not making much headway, I decided to pick my battles and let him do his thing in his own room. Then a few things made their way to the living room and little by little, you get used to things being out. And yes, I got lazy and didn't feel like messing with it.  Then one day I looked around and thought that if someone happened to pop in unannounced, I would be totally embarrassed. So, something had to give.

There are as many methods of cleaning and decluttering as there are ways to make a mess.  I have looked thro…

Rideshare in B/CS

It's official!  I'm now also a driver for Uber. Here's hoping the two programs overlap nicely.
