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.

Geocaching on a cold winter day

Hello all,
We managed to grab a quick cache this weekend, and then the severe Danish winter drove us home.
The cache was called Futtog - Nordhavn (Nht) C1A1KD.

Not a bad cache, interesting placement and a great view of the Nordhavn trainstation and the harbour behind it:

All the best,

Geocaching in Marocco

Hello all,
We hid from all the Christmas fuss in Marocco. Nothing like being in a Muslim country at Christmas. We also managed to log a single cache in Marrakesh: Marrakech - La Koutoubia (GC2PRT9)

 Quite a special cache, instead of being on the location stated in the description, the cache was guarded by the gardener/security guard at the park. While my wife was climbing the palm tree searching, he called us over and had both the cache and a pen to write with.

 He didn't ask for any money or similar, so all in all a great service. And only in Africa does each cache have its own guard :-).

All the best,

Good advice concerning geocaching

1. Some cachers go to great effort to maintain quality caches.
2. Some cache owners are amazingly creative.
3. Some caches are abandoned relatively fast.
4. There is ambiguity in the geocaching guidelines…and varying interpretations.
5. I don’t think I want to be a reviewer.
6. There is an art to reading the GPS.
7. The vast majority of cache coordinates are pretty gosh darn accurate.
8. Seconds count when attempting to be the FTF.
9. FTF’s are amazingly addictive.
10. It’s stupid to go out caching all afternoon in 102 degree heat with bad air conditioning.
11. A lot of cachers don’t log their DNF’s.
12. I hate lamp post hides – boring.
13. I love lamp post hides – nothing better after a few DNF’s or to reach a milestone.
14. I understand why people have stamps for their names.
15. There is a special place in heck for people who run their stamps across three or four lines on a small cache log. Yes, you should be ashamed if you do this.
16. A lot of logs are damp, moist, wet, mush.
17. A lot of seemingly waterproof containers…aren’t.
18. Some cache owners don’t think their plan through.
19. There are a lot of parks and green areas I didn’t know about.
20. Just because there are a million great hiding places in the rocks doesn’t mean the cache isn’t really in the bushes.
21. There are a lot of cedar trees and bushes in our area.
22. I hate cedar trees and bushes.
23. I’m starting to hate pine trees.
24. Muggles are everywhere.
25. Muggles sneak up on you.
26. Some muggles are oblivious to the world around them.
27. Muggles sometimes find caches…and sign them.
28. I’m surprise that some caches have never been muggled.
29. Some descriptions have nothing to do with the cache.
30. Some hints, really aren’t.
31. I would really like to meet some of the cache owner’s.
32. I find I mentally assign a gender to some ‘genderless’ cache owners – and am often right.
33. There are some muggles you should just not go caching with…seriously.
34. It’s possible to spot another geocacher from several hundred feet away.
35. Some cache descriptions tell some very poignant stories.
36. There are a lot of spiders and bugs in this world.
37. There are a lot of sharp and pokey things in this world.
38. I need to buy gloves.
39. Long sleeve shirt might not be a bad idea either.
40. The best geocaching pen in the world is the Sharpie Fine Point Pen.
