Lunch Time Ammo Box Geocache

I packed my lunch today so I had some extra time to go find a geocache. This one took you for a short walk in the woods. Found this extremely nice ammo box nestled within a pile of sticks. Always fun to go geocaching during your lunch time. Oh and mind the skeeters.

HeadHardHat at an unusual pile of sticks..

Loving the Woods, the mosquitos - not so much.

My First Geocache Near My New Job

You have often heard me say that one of the best ways to finding new businesses in an area that you've never been before is go geocaching.

Here is my first lunch time geocache near my new place of employment. In just finding that I now know where the local drug store is and several food establishments. All handy knowledge. Good to know these type of places and I picked up a smiley to boot.

Handy Geocaching Online Tools: GPS Coordinate Converter, Coordinate Grabber and Coordinate Distance Calculator


Andy HeadHardHat Smith














As far as handy online geocaching utilities go. The Jeff Boulter's website GPS Coordinate Converter has been one of my blog's most popular pages. During Episode 072 of the GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast, one of our listeners let us know of two other geocaching utilities that I thought you would love to know as well.

So here are all three for your geocaching insights.

  • GPS Coordinate Converter:
  • GPS Coordinate Grabber
  • GPS Coordinate Distance Calculator


They are useable on pretty much all devices which is handy for all.

GPS Coordinate Converter:
Converts many types of coordinate forms into GPSr format.



GPS Coordinate Grabber:
Grabs coordinates from online URLs and automatically populates them for the user to put into a GPSr.




Gives you the calculated distance between GPSr coordinate points.
