The Earthcache celebrates its 20th birthday!

On 10.01.2004 the first Earthcache was published in Australia by „geoaware“. It bears the name:
GCHFT2: „Earthcache I – a simple geology tour of Wasp Head“

14 days later it got its first „Found it“ log.

If you search for „old“ earth caches, you will still find a few with an earlier publication date. These caches were other cache types when they were published and were later converted into earth caches.

We want to meet monthly to celebrate this 20th anniversary year of Earthcaches! We will always meet at beautiful earthcaches and answer them together. We hope that the owners will be on site and support us with their knowledge in answering the questions.

Our kick-off event for the anniversary took place on 10.01.2024 in Goslar and was very well received. Together with over 40 geocachers, we celebrated the anniversary „20 years of Earthcaches“ at -10 degrees. The highlight was a freshly published EC, 20 meters away. Together with the owner, we talked shop on the subject of „sandworms“ and answered questions.

But who are we?

Geo and Logia are a group of „earth dwarves“ (geocachers) who like to play earth caches. Since we are lovers of EC’s, we know as feedback of course:

•⁠ ⁠too scientific
•⁠ ⁠stupid
•⁠ ⁠too complicated
•⁠ ⁠too time-consuming
•⁠ ⁠I don’t enjoy it, but I do it anyway etc.

Our wish is to make Earthcaches less „awful and scientific“ and bring them closer to all geocachers.

But who are we now? Take a look at the individual dwarves and their descriptions.
