Pocket Cache- Fun way to introduce yourself to others. One person will be holding the pocket cache. To log it as a find, you must introduce yourself to that person. They will then discreetly hand you the cache to make your log. The micro will be hidden after the event for you to log the find and others to enjoy in the future.

Cool!

Makes my head spin for a unique idea ... something odd, like how about a Travel Bug that doesn't move ... like a TB welded to the side of a bridge, you can log it but you can't put miles on it.

I alway thought this was a cute idea and a fun way to meet other (geo)cachers.

I've heard a lot of complaining from other admins and geocachers from other states. It seems that some people are complaining a GPS isn't needed to find it so it shouldn't be logged as a "find".

Even if you don't get to log it as a find, it's still a fun idea Image

You don't need a GPS to find a LetterBox Hybrid Cache either...

Or A cache that does move..
Or A TB that is a photo album of cachers met on the trails and never leave the hands of it's owner..

The pocket log book has been used at the Nashville invitational a couple of years ago, at the Estabrook park breakfast, at the Middleton breakfast and a couple of others.

They are all great ideas for keeping the interest level high. Purists complain, but if this game were only for purists, all caches would be ammoboxes hidden in a hollow log 0.5 miles from the nearest parking place and 5 miles from the next cache.

Personnaly, I would like to see all cachers carry an autograph book for cachers met on the trail [events wouldn't count here, for the purists in this facet].

Hey, I like that idea. I am going to start carrying one today. I will have a few spares in my pocket for other cachers who want to do the same. Today, we plan on being in Kiel if you want to be the first to sign our log.

It's not exactly a cache, but I have a TB that is based on a similar concept...

I use my notebook as my geocaching autography memory book .. here's my favorite.. (you have to scroll down to April 25, 2004 to find the start of my logs there and the notes made between the cache owner and I last til July 19th)

Sounds similar to the Caching Karma Stick as well.
