Headhardhat's Geocaching vLog - Geocaching In Hell

Headhardhat's Geocaching vLog - Geocaching In Hell



In this Geocaching vLog Wife Amy the Headhardhatress and Andy HeadHardHat Smith literally go to Hell to find geocaches. Okay it's not all sulpher and Brimstone. In fact it's Hell, Michigan with an ice creme store, spooky nick-knacks and a putt-putt course. If you want to go to Hell in a handbasket or see if Hell actually freezes over this is the place to be.

Geocaching Quick Tips: Printing Off Your Own Geocache Log Sheets.

It happens more frequently as a geocacher. You find the geocache you were looking for and when you go to sign the log it is either full or a squishy pile of goo. Now what? Wouldn't it be great to have your own empty log book stash right with you for these occasions? Sure you can just say "oh well", mark your smiley in your app and walk away, but, wouldn't it be better to help contribute to the geocaching community and simply replace the log? Here is all you need to know.

First, head on over to this website and check out all the different geocache log book templates you can print out: http://www.techblazer.com/geocaching-log-sheets/

You can print out log sheets in black and white or color from .05 inches for nanos, 1.25 for micros to 2.5 inches for small and regular sizes. There are several varieties to choose from.

Simply print a couple of sheets for each size you want to create. I recommend only one sheet for the nanos. You get 48 full logs on one sheet.

For everything else I print out two sheets of each size each. That way you can make a log book with enough room for plenty of geocachers to sign and yet not too big to fit in the container. Below are some photos for the next step.


Put two sheets on top of each other facing up. Then staple each of the logs together somewhere near the logo. This will help keep them together when cutting, folding and placing them in their baggies. Note:  Reclosable Plastic Poly Clear Bags can be found in most craft stores.

Cut the outside blank boarder off of the log sheet.


Cut each of the individual logs sheets from each other.



Fold the log sheets in half and then in half again.



Place them in individual jewelry baggies.



Make as many logbooks you would like for the sizes you think you will most likely need to replace when out geocaching. In about an hours time you can have a complete collection for your new geocaches and replacements for others.


Hope you found this post helpful and you can find more quick tips and other geocaching insights from this blog and our GeoSnippits webpage.

A Geocaching Adventure In HELL

Yup I can honestly say that I have seen Hell Freeze Over. No the Detroit Lions did not win the Super Bowl and i am not speaking the place of sulfur and brimstone.  Hell, Michigan is a tiny little town not to far from where I lived in Dexter, Michigan. Yes anytime there was a good snow or ice storm news crews would come out for the photo opportunity of shooting Hell frozen over.



For the longest time it was a one light town without the light. In fact the only thing was a bar. Now it is not quite a booming metropolis though it has expanded to an ice cream / putt-putt / Halloween store.



Hell does have geocaches and wife Amy and I took a little trip to see what we could find.


 The pickings were pretty slim in Hell but we managed to find three geocaches.


You had to keep moving otherwise you might be overtaken by Michigan's state bird - the mosquito.


 Very cool cemetery nearby. We spent several minutes checking out the gravestones.


Had fun driving around my old stomping grounds and showing Wife Amy the sites. Then we had just enough time to meet up with family for some dinner and conversation. A really fun day.

Good Food, Family and Fudge - Frankenmuth, Michigan

On Saturday (7/4) we spent some time with my sister Vicki, brother Scott and his family.

What better place to meet up and eat up than Frankenmuth, Michigan. Home of Bronner's Christmas Store (largest in the world) plus Bavarian Inn and Zehnder's World Famous Chicken houses.

Paddle boat in Frankenmuth
The feud of the chicken houses go back ages. It is a true Coke/Pepsi rivalry that will split families in two when deciding where to eat. Even though both are now owned by one family the divide is real and both take great pride on who is best in this town.

Do you prefer Zehnder's

or do you prefer Bavarian Inn?
Bronner's Christmas store has been my North Pole since I was a kid. Mr. Bronner who owned Bronner's was a very respected representative of Michigan and catching a glimpse of him during working hours was like a Santa sighting. I finally caught up with him years ago for a photo opt, it is one of my prized shots.

Wife Amy and Amanda inside Bronner's Christmas Store
There is tons to do at Frankenmuth. From horse drawn carriages to home made fudge.  It very much a tourist place to go but if you are from Michigan and beyond you still take time to drop on by every now and again.

Wife Amy and Headhardhat at one of Bronner's many parade floats.
Note my patriotic t-shirt matches the Fourth of July float.

Photos From Our Michigan Trip - Wall Cloud at the Virginia-North Carolina Border

Driving home from Michigan on Sunday (7/5) was mostly uneventful until, dun, dun, dunnnnn.

The mass flooding and torrential rain we had to drive through the West Virginia and Virginia mountains on I-77.  It really came down to the point the car was easily spinning it's tires (hydroplaning) with very little effort. Felt very much like driving through the winter months except it was July. This added several hours to our trip home.

As we were coming up to the North Carolina border we saw this wall cloud in the valley below. The thunderstorms were pretty violent.

Wall cloud near North Carolina border - Photo by Andy Smith
Luckily things cleared up as we drove closer to Raleigh, NC.  Though I have to admit, what ever adrenaline I had left was spent after our 18 hour trip.

Maybe next time we will fly to Michigan instead of drive...
