Greetings! This small blog has a simple purpose - to chronicle the Geocaching adventures of Tokasper.
We are a small family (two boys and their parents) living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
As both parents travel a lot we will be logging both Danish and international caches.

Our first cache: Kochsvejs Perler (GC2FZJV)

So - we finally dived in and hid our first cache - Kochsvejs Perler (C2FZJV)
It was posted at 8:55 and the first find was logged at 9:12... pretty impressive. It was then found four more times within half an hour.
The cache details our street and it's history.

Cachetour August 2010: GCTAW & GC233NA

Hello all,
The weekend provided us with a quick tour of the Danish city Frederiksværk together with our friends "Uranienborg Metrostars".

The rewards were two multicaches: "Fragmenter af en by (GCTAW)" and "Er Gade gået under jorden (GC233NA)".
Both were pretty simple and made for great cache-hunting with the children (three boys) - quick, easy and with cacheboxes containing toys at the end of the hunt.
Especially the last one did cause some problems as we couldn't find the precise hiding place but at the end we managed to retrieve it from its hiding place. Succes!

Best regards,

So what is Geocaching?

This definition from Wikipedia might be the best answer (the shortest is "fun"):

Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (tupperware or similar) or ammo boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaching is most often described as a "game of high-tech hide and seek," sharing many aspects with benchmarking, trigpointing, orienteering, treasure-hunting, Letterboxing, and waymarking.
Geocaches are currently placed in over 100 countries around the world and on all seven continents, including Antarctica. After 10 years of activity there are over 1.1 million active geocaches published on various websites devoted to the activity.

Interesting Caches: GC1BE91 & GC1WH58

Once in a while you stumble upon some interesting caches. These two are examples of this. 
The first GC1BE91 or International Space Station is a cache that is actually in space - circling earth every 90 minutes onboard the ISS. Never logged sofar but that would be something else to do! 

The other, GC1WH58 or World's First Royal Cache, was created by the Danish Prince Henrik as part of a challenge from a journalist. It is situated near his castle in France (and isn't really that interesting a cache according to loggers) and is a brilliant example of what a bit of daring journalism may entail. I don't really respect the Princce all that much but this gave him a couple of extra brownie points :-).
