I seem to remember there were locationless caches at one point and now they are no longer part of geocaching.com. I thought there were still some "grandfathered" caches however. Are there any in BC. Anyone know the GC code?

Groundspeak made the locationless caches in to waymarking. None of them were grandfathered they were all archived. A locationless cache was also know as a reversed cache where an object like a pyramid was chosen and you had to find one somewhere else and log it usually with a photo. The last day to log one was December 31, 2005. Why do you just want to log one for the icon?

Yes. I was thinking about it after going to GeoWoodstock and hearing smoothers talking about the icon. Thanks for the info.

What is a smoother? I sounds like something that needs a special cream to be put on it.

What in the name of all that is sane did I type Smile I meant some other people. I think spell check took over I did not notice. I meant to say that I heard some other cachers talking about all of the icons. Sorry about that but it is giving me a laugh so it is not all bad Smile

When I started caching, Locationless caches were my favourite. I thought it was fun looking for interesting landmarks like Whale Walls, Googie Architecture, a Quonset Hut or a barbershop pole that someone else hadn't already logged. And that was long before I had a digital camera. I did it all with film. **teehee** Many of these caches could be done when conducting day to day business.

I don't know the official reason Locationless caches were axed but I do miss them.

Me too! I miss Locationless caches. They were so much fun and got folk really looking at details, buildings, oddities, and points of interest. I loved reading the logs and seeing the photographs on them. Learned and got quite a lot of chuckles etc.
The last one I did was on the Pet Cemetery in Surrey which lead me to form a group to try and save it. Sadly the landowner is more into the money to be made building homes on the property. I met a lot of terrific caring people.
