Geocaching and Orienteering combined?

Postby abelisle » Fri Aug 27, 2010 9:16 pm

Has anyone thought of or mentioned combining geocaching with orienteering where people would have to run to find a designated number of hides (let's say in a 10 square mile area) in the fastest time?

I guess using a digital camera to show pics of each hide would determine if each runner found all the designated hides? These hides/caches would only be put out for the event and removed afterwards. The geographical area would only be announced a day before the event to prevent participants from reconnoitering the topograhy of the area.

One could use a topo map and/or a GPSr with built in topo maps to determine the most efficient approach to finding all the hides.

Ther total distance to be run would be about 5K (3.1 miles) or more if one has difficulty finding the hide?

The only problem I foresee is what to do if another participant sees someone else accessing a hide?

Sounds like an entry in the "Geocaching Olympics." Several geocaching organizations have held them, there's a really big famous one in Texas called the Texas Challenge. Some of the games I've seen for this type of event:

GPS Figure Skating Each contestant has 5 minutes to create a figure on their track log.
ROT13 Decryption Decrypt a ROT13 encrypted paragraph without the aid of the key.
Multi-Cache Run A 5-stage run where each contestant must correctly enter the next stage in their GPS before being allowed to move on.
Nano Log Roll Roll up a nano log and get it in the nano container.
Ammo Can Toss See who can toss an ammo can the farthest.
LPC Dash Run Run to the lamp post, lift the skirt, find micro, sign and date log, return micro and skirt, run back.
Is your culture a counter-culture or an over-the-counter-culture?

Well, since I am involved with a geocaching and Orienteering event in October (more GC101 than Olympics) I guess I could set out a course as you suggest for veteran cachers. Let me think on it a bit.

MNYGS should have "Geocaching Olympics". I like the nano log rolling idea --- although I have yet to roll one up under a one minute period.
