During my lunch break, I went geocaching. My workplace’s campus is but a small pimple in the center of Microsoft’s sprawling Redmond campus, surrounded on all sides by Microsoft buildings. Lucky for me, there are a lot of geocache enthusiasts in the area.
It’s getting easier to find the caches, as there are only so many types of caches and so many places they can be hidden. Geocachers call this sense of where the cache is hidden “Geointuition”.
I instantly found a cache disguised as a lamppost plate, the third one I found of this type.
Across the street from work, on a derelict basketball court, there was a magnetic cache behind the hoop’s padding.
Near a water sampling station, there was a cache nestled at the base of a fence.
And finally, by the marsh, in an open field where people jog and fly their drones, there was an ammo box cache. Apparently it is filled with apple seed kits to take and plant, but the box was too rusty for me to open.
