The 5th annual BFL Bootcamp event takes place on October 30th.  I’ve attended the previous three evenings, they are more than just the event.  This year will be the first year that I am placing  a cache for the event.

I’m building my cache with Bakers Dozen.  We seem to have most of the physical elements worked out.  Our write up is going to be a bit of a challenge.  We found the location we like and have already placed some parts of the cache.  The final element will need to be done in situ to make sure we get the accuracy we need.

By themselves the individual elements of the cache are straightforward.  Putting them together in one cache is going to be tricky.  I’m looking forward to having someone test it.  We have the curse of knowledge.  We know how it is supposed to work.  First time visitors may not be so lucky.

We have learned one thing in this process.   The signalling device needs to be warmed up for best effect.  Remember that if you are coming out to the event.


I have been writing the cachemania blog since 2008. I'm interested in the development of geocaching and the many ways that people play the game.
