A bit about the GPS Maze Exhibit that I was fortunate to check out during my time in Mainz Germany during the recent Giga event.

#Geocaching   #GPSMaze   #EuropeanAdventure2015  
When I was in Mainz Germany for the Mainz Gutenberg 2015 Giga event, I also got to take in another unique geocaching experience: the GPS Maze Europe exhibit. The GPS Maze Exhibit is just that: an exhibit about GPS technology, geocaching specifically, in a winding series of displays.

Geocaching in Lucerne at an old Roman wall. Switzerland is a great place to explore.

Filled in another area of the International Geocaching Map today... this time in Switzerland.

#Milestones   #Geocaching  #Switzerland
Today, while biking my way thru the mean streets of Zurich on the way to the office, I stopped by a little park called the Klopstockweisse, and found my first geocache in Switzerland. Thats one more map space filled in for me! Finding the cache involved hopping a fence in the woods at the edge ...

Some thoughts about the Giga event in Mainz Germany I attended on Saturday.

#Geocaching   #Giga  
I was saddened to learn that a work trip was going to interfere with my plans to attend GeoWoodstock this year. However as a consolation prize, and a happy coincidence, I found I was going to be in the general neighbourhood of a Giga event. Giga events are rare. This is only the second one in ...

The European GPS Maze is pretty cool. I am glad I got the chance to check it out.

Had some unexpected excitement today.

This is the story of how I lost my bag on a train in Europe... and how I found it again.

#EuropeanAdventure2015  
Today's travel adventure was going very well. I had planned to take a train from Mainz Germany to Basel Switzerland, then another train from Basel to Zurich. From there I would negotiate the Swiss public transit system, and arrive at the apartment where my employer was putting me up for the next ...

Indeed, nice story telling, I was stressed and almost started biting my nails. Even though I was waiting for a happy ending I couldn't help. Phew, your bag is there ! What a stressing adventure.

Story
Tagline
Geocacher, explorer, resident alien.
Introduction
It is my lot in life to resemble a cross between Indiana Jones, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Chewbacca (what a wookie!)

I am a geocacher, which means that the world is my playground.

I am a proud Canadian who lives in North Carolina, so my writing is full of extra u's, and oddly pronounced 'outs'. I also have an inferiority complex and a penchant for self deprecating humour.
Bragging rights
I can levitate birds. No one cares.
