Wacky Race Geopt chega ao fim!

Um ano após o tiro de partida da corrida mais louca do mundo aquando da Geocoinfest Europe 2012, eis que esta edição chega ao fim.

Foram perto de 250 participantes de 10 nacionalidades diferentes, tornando assim esta a maior corrida internacional organizada pelo Geopt.
Muitos foram os que não conseguiram chegar ao fim e as regras malucas do jogo puseram muitos nervos à flôr da pele criando muitas expectativas nos seus participantes.

Parabéns a todos os participantes e parabéns também aos 25 vencedores que irão ser contactados afim de receberem os seus merecidos troféus.

There are many types of geocachers: casual, hardcore, stealthy, adventurous—the list goes on and on. The real question becomes, with so many different types of geocachers, how do you capture their attention and draw them to your geocache? We’ve given tips and ideas for creating great geocaches in past blog posts. In fact, Geocache of the Week is written to inspire quality geocaches. The creators of How To Build a Better…(GC29F60) solved the problem head-on: if you want to capture a geocacher’s attention, why not just go for the whole geocacher?

In the geocache description, the geocache creators FarmBoy&theTeacher recalled their tale of inspiration, “Awhile back we saw a picture of a unique type of cache hide and it got us thinking about the age old question: ‘How to build a better one’. Well, the ideas came and went and after much pondering we put together a plan. Then it was time to start building so we headed for the shop. Sawdust soon filled the air as the wood was cut. The steel was bent and twisted with the utmost precision. A shiny new coat of paint finished the project.”

This difficuly 1, terrain 2 geocache has not only captured many geocachers, but also their favorite points. You can see from all of the positive logs that the geocachers don’t seem to mind being “caught.” Geocacher ArBec said, “Very proud to name this one as our 100th find!!!! After only a few months of doing this, we’re on a role!! LOVED this geocache. Had heard so much about it that we had to check it out for ourselves. Probably the coolest geocache we’ve come across yet!!”

So far, this geocache has been found over 300 times and has earned over 115 favorite points. Another geocacher who has earned their smiley is yeahYOu, who said, “Very cool. I can see why this is a favorite cache. The kids loved this one. Took pictures. Its caches like these that inspire great ideas.”

This geocache was inspired by other geocaches. What inspires your geocache hides? Tell us in the comments.
