Hello,
We are two German geocachers go in August with the car through the Baltics.
We would like to see where much of the country and looking for some nice geocaches.
Perhaps, one of the local geocaching help me.
what has to be seen? there are great and exciting caches? Recommendations for hotels?
I am pleased with your information.
Greetings from Germany
Marcel

Hi Marcel!
Regarding exciting caches - it depends on what kind of caches you prefer - and what you find exciting. Are you more into urban caching or do you prefer caches in the nature? Do you prefer longer walks or are you more interested in caches where special equipment is required?

I can reccomend using http://gcvote.com, it is popular enough to see pretty clear which are good and which are not worth looking at.

Average Latvian geoacacher is a bit younger than average German one, so there sometimes might be too low terrain ratings.

Hi kazhe and Papuass,
Thank you for your answers.
We come from Germany go through poland to Kaunas. From there we want to go to riga. Thence along the coast up to tallin.
We are both about 25 years old, terrain so it should be no problem. We have climbing equipment here.
In Latvia, we would like to climb the radio mast (GC1M4CG).
We especially like caches in abandoned structure, or where one has to climb.
For longer walks, we have no time unfortunately.
I know GCVote, I will try it.
Thanks and best regards

Marcel

GC1M4CG Uz adatas gala was closed because owner of structure asked it. There is no container anymore.

By the way, you can use https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreads ... kNgN#gid=0
It is an hint dictionary. And it will be great if you could translate those hint in German too. ;) it is some kind of project, that udajs and other latvian geocachers have made ;)
Have a nice trip ;)

you can try couchsurfing.com, it's much more fun than a hotel and it's free. as locals, we don't have much experience with hotels here :)

Actually almost every cache with terrain more than 3 requires little climbing under bridge or somewhere else. Just look at GCvote or pavourite points to sort out good ones where you don't have to become dirty. I also recommend couchsurfing- some of geocachers are coachsurfing in Latvia too so they will be happy to meet some other cachers.

I can't see your e-mail so I can't give you possibility to edit spreadsheet- please send me yours in private message.

Judy--Yes, I would like to use the miles for an upgrade, BUT, all the flights I checked in June "there is no upgrade available." Do you have any suggestions on different ways to search?

It was the Americans, who brought those great cars in the first place, but yes, it will soon be unrecognisable.
I wonder if the old cars, will now be snapped up by unscrupulous? collectors.
