Opencaching

When Opencaching first hit the world, I explored a little bit, ran into an error, and then moved on. Life got busy and I was barely geocaching, let alone exploring a new site. Now that it has been out for over a year, how about I go back and really delve into the site. Explore it. Try out it’s features. Then, report back to all of you.

How can you contribute? I feel that you should be involved in some way. Here are some questions.

1.Are there any particular features that already exist that you would like me to explore?

2.Are there any features that don’t exist that you think should be added?

3.Are there any flaws or errors, or a basic feature you think should be there that has not been implemented?

I will try to go through each of your contributions while I examine the site. I plan on starting either tonight or tomorrow.

    Heya, Trip – Here’s one Onion’s opinion… I guess I’m the rare cacher that likes to play lots of different caching games – Waymarking, Terracaching, Geocaching, historical markering. I currently have a 26 cache series “Civil War in the West” over on Terracaching that I’d love to expand over to Opencaching that I’d love to expand to open caching. My problem is that a.) I want to keep it a virtual series to respect the fact that they are the burial places of Civil War Generals, and b.) most are more than 100 miles for my doorstep. I like that fact that there is another option than geocaching, however, with the rules as they are set at the moment, it’s not truly “open”. So, with that said…
    1.) Sometimes the history of the place should trump the need for a micro container with a logbook. I do not carry a cell phone (probably should) so a QR code doesn’t help.
    2.) Interesting series with historical or cultural significance should have the 100 mile rule relaxed.
    So, with that said, I’ll prolly remain a “finder” with Geocaching and Opencaching and be more of a contributor over at Terracaching. Waymarking and my Historical Markers logging are done as I find them.
