The Curious Incident of the Geocache in the Desert | The Geocaching Junkie

When we travelled to the US in October, I had big plans to collect three specific caches to inch ever closer to completing the elusive Jasmer grid.

That last one was particularly important,… Read More The Curious Incident of the Geocache in the Desert | The Geocaching Junkie

A Day Trip to Snowy Salzburg | The Geocaching Junkie
