Come on a cachetur with us…

Come on a cachetur with us...

What is a cachetur?  Cachetur is the Norwegian word for a geocaching trip.  Cachetur.no is a user supported geocaching trip planning tool.  Using cachetur.no you can do all of this and more:

  • Plan geocaching trips both near and far
  • Quickly and easily see which caches you have planned as either you or any of the trips participants, own or have found before
  • Receive an automated email if changes are made to caches in your trips
  • Add comments and discuss with other participants
  • Keep track of tasks and answers to earthcaches and virtuals in trips you have planned
  • Get automatic tips and recommendations on your trips
  • Get automatic routes generated on your trips
  • Download GPX files with all caches in a trip
  • Add other waypoints, such as parking lots, sights, etc.
  • See statistics for the caches you plan to find
  • Print lists and maps
  • Import from and export to bookmarks on geocaching.com
  • Share information with GSAK through a macro package
  • Select caches directly from the map on geocaching.com via a user script
    • And much much more …

So come out and join us at NOVAGO cacheturs to Maryland hear a presentation all about cachetur.no by cachetur Ambassador, Instructor and NoVaGo President platoaddict.

and they are off… (plus Spring CITO info)

and they are off... (plus Spring CITO info)

CAM Kick-Off events across the state were well attended and excitement was in the air.  I hope everybody is enjoying themselves so far.  There were some hickups including a reception attended by the Govenor,  lots and lots of muggles, and a wet parking lot but miles were driven, geocaches were found and fun was had.  Keep at it because the picnic is right around the corner!  Something even closer than the CAM picnic is two MGS Spring CITOs!  So come out, help out and earn that new Spring 2018 CITO souvenir!  One CITO will be held in Southern Maryland, at the Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary and one in Northern Maryland at the Elk Neck Arboretum.  So come out, earn your souvenir and help clean up the playing field.  See you there!

And the winner is…

And the winner is...

The votes have been cast and counted. Some categories were very close, some were tied(!) and some were a blowout! I am sure you are all dying to know who writes the best logs, takes the best photographs and who has the most scenic hide. Well to find out, you need to come to the live reveal at 2018 MGS Meet The Officers! See you there!
