Geocaching country souvenir: the United States of America

first_imgWe announced five new Geocaching country souvenirs on Monday, December 10, 2018. If you have found a geocache in any of these countries, you automatically receive the souvenir on your profile. Check out all of the Geocaching souvenirs here.Share with your Friends:More USA Geocaching country souvenirThe United States of America — the birthplace of geocaching.At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2) of diverse geography, the United States has the most ecoregions out of any country in the world, making it an amazing playground for geocaching.From the Atlantic seaboard, across the prairies of the Great Plains, to the Cascade mountain range in the Pacific Northwest, there are lots of unique geocaching adventures to discover.While it is true that the United States is home to some of the oldest active geocaches that are still around, such as the oldest Traditional, Multi-Cache, as well as the oldest still existing cache with a three-digit GC code, there are plenty of other amazing caching adventures waiting for you from sea to shining sea.Bridges & Arches of Central ParkMulti-Cache | GC17MX1 | by addisonbr | D 3 / T 2This geocache is an epic, 32-stage Multi-Cache that takes you on a journey through Central Park in New York City. Each stage focuses on the bridges and arches of the park which are beautifully crafted yet often overlooked. Central Park covers over 800 acres (3.237485km²) of greenery and recreation areas in the middle of Manhattan, so prepare for a long (but pleasant) walk.The Doctor Is In!Traditional | GC6YDR6 | by Doctor Dolittle (Ron) and djwhouse (Dave) | D 2.5 / T 1.5For this adventure, the TARDIS has touched down just north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Its ordinary Yale lock has transformed into a memory puzzle consisting of four lights which blink in increasingly difficult patterns. Cachers who travel with the Doctor must repeat the patterns perfectly. Only then are they rewarded with flashing lights, the signature TARDIS parking brake groan, and doors that open to reveal the famed “bigger on the inside” interior.Mission 9: Tunnel of LightProject APE Cache | GC1169 | by Project APE (maintained by Moun10Bike) | D 1 / T3In 2001, fourteen geocaches were placed in conjunction with 20th Century Fox to support the movie Planet of the Apes. Mission 9: Tunnel of Light was one of those caches. Located about 60 miles (97km) east of Seattle, the container was placed by Geocaching HQ co-founder Jeremy Irish and the father of the geocoin, Moun10Bike. The cache was found more than 3,000 times, surviving minor disturbances for nearly 10 years. Sadly, after being muggled and going missing, Mission 9 was archived in June 2011. After it was found by dedicated local cachers in October 2016, Mission 9 was reactivated at the 8th annual Going Ape 2017 Mega-Event on August 19th. It is now one of just two active APE caches, along with Brazil’s Mission 4: Southern Bowl.

first_imgThe police have arrested a Marathi film financier and his bodyguard from Kombadbhuje village in Ulwe for the murder of Omkar Aarne (21), whose body was found near Dehrang dam in Panvel on April 28.The police said prime accused Nahushkumar Koli (37) had an extramarital affair with Aarne’s wife, Sudha (20), who was his wife Sapna’s niece.

SA recall Duminy, Parnell for 2nd Test

first_imgSouth Africa have included middle-order batsman Jean Paul Duminy and left-arm pacer Wayne Parnell in the squad for the second Test which will start in Durban on the Boxing Day.Although South Africa recorded a convincing victory in the first Test winning by an innings and 25 runs, Duminy who scored a double century in a domestic match was rewarded for his good show.But it is unlikely that Duminy will be inducted into the playing XI as selectors and team management is unlikely to tinker with the top-six players.Parnell may replace left-arm pacer Lonwabo Tsotsobe, who took only one wicket giving away 148 runs in the first Test in Centurion.The Squad: Graeme Smith (captain), Alviro Petersen, Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers, Ashwell Prince, Mark Boucher, Paul Harris, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Ryan McLaren, JP Duminy and Wayne Parnell.-With PTI inputslast_img read more

Murray faces Tsonga in Queen’s title clash

first_imgBritain’s Andy Murray will face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the final at Queen’s after an imperious 6-3, 6-1 victory over fourtime champion Andy Roddick in the semi-finals on Saturday.Murray, seeded second, was in sublime form as he demolished one of the top grass-court players of the last decade and French fifth seed Tsonga joined him in the final with a 6-3, 7-6 (9-7) win against British wildcard James Ward.This was arguably the most complete performance of Murray’s career and the victory was especially sweet for the world number four as it went some way to avenging his 2009 Wimbledon semifinal defeat against Roddick.Murray, who last won the Queen’s title in 2009, slammed down two aces in his first service game and then snatched the early momentum by breaking Roddick in the next game.As ever, Murray was looking to use the drop-shot at every opportunity and he caught Roddick with two exquisite efforts to move 4-1 ahead.Murray’s serve was in good working order and, with his sliced backhand causing the American no end of problems, Roddick began to wear an increasingly exasperated expression as the first set ended with another Murray ace.The American was going for a record fifth Queen’s title, but there was no let-up from Murray at the start of the second set and he broke again in the first game.A Roddick double-fault gifted the break point and Murray was quick to seize the opportunity with a superb return that his opponent could only volley into the net.advertisementMurray was toying with Roddick now, drawing him in with low slices and then passing at will, and his place in the final was secured when he broke for a 4- 1 lead and then converted his third match point.Tsonga had enjoyed his own shock win on Friday when he beat world number one Rafael Nadal in three sets and the world number 19 looked full of confidence against Ward as he broke for a 2-0 lead.After Ward failed to convert a couple of break points of his own, Tsonga was able to serve out the set. Even when Ward had a chance to level the match after breaking for a 4-2 lead in the second set, Tsonga broke back to force a tie-break.Both players had chances in the breaker, but it was Tsonga who came through as Ward missed a passing shot on the Frenchman’s second match point.Paes-Bhupathi in Semis Third seeds Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi advanced to the doubles semi-finals of the AEGON Tennis Championships after a hard fought 6-4, 6-4 win over Filip Polasek and Igor Zelenay of Slovakia.The Indian Express saved seven breakpoints in the second set and converted one, which proved decisive in their victory.last_img read more

Tomas Berdych joins seeds’ Stuttgart exodus after defeat to Feliciano Lopez

first_imgTomas Berdych became the latest seeded player to exit the Stuttgart Open on Friday as Spaniard Feliciano Lopez edged past the Czech third seed 6-7(4) 6-3 6-4 to reach the last four.The world number 14, who has reached only one final this year, joined top seeds Roger Federer and Grigor Dimitrov on the sidelines.Spaniard Lopez, ranked 33rd in the world, will face in-form Mischa Zverev on the quick grass court after he beat 39-year-old veteran Tommy Haas 6-4 6-4.The 35-year-old Lopez bounced back from the first set tiebreak loss to Berdych and saved several break points on his own serve early in the third set.Lopez earned his only break with a superb crosscourt passing shot to go 4-3 up and keep his advantage until the end.The other semi-final will be an all-French clash between world number 16 Lucas Pouille and Benoit Paire, who has yet to drop a set in the tournament.last_img read more
