OCNA Blog note: Wait! The Doc can explain! You’ll have to watch the video. And late in the video, there is an announcement regarding an upcoming event, and friends of OCNA. Be sure to check it out!

LPC [el-pee-see] – noun
A very common hiding place for micro geocaches. Oftentimes used as derogatory reference, since LPC hides are generally all the same and require little skill or imagination.

Sporadically Featured OCNA Cache: The Infiltrator

Our latest Sporadically featured OCNA Cache is a Moving Cache, The Infiltrator, owned by OCNA username Termite Hunter from the Charlotte, North Carolina area. Whom, by the way, is the first person ever to have two of their caches sporadically featured on this blog! As of the date of this Blog post, this is also the most found cache on our website, although it hasn’t always been, and may not always be. We accept moving caches on our website, and always have during our 3 1/2 year existence. So too do all our fellow alternative Geocaching websites. Best we can tell, Geocaching.com stopped accepting them in mid-2003, although there are exceptions, and later ones that “slipped through the cracks”. In this post, we will talk about how Moving Caches work, the history of Moving Caches, and of course we will have some commentary from Termite Hunter on this Moving Cache. We will also tell the amazing story of The Infiltrator being “muggled”, and later returned to it’s hiding spot by that same Muggle, as the OCNA blogger was personally involved in that situation!

Win some OpenCaching North America Pathtags part Deux!

Pathtag Blueprint

The OpenCaching North America Pathtag, 1st Edition, is currently sold out, and no longer available for purchase to the general public from TheGeocoinStore.com. We could order an owner refill in the future, but they will most likely be retired, with a total of 500 having been produced.  However, 400 of those were produced for sale to the general public, and the other 100 were in fact an owner refill. That refill order recently arrived at OCNA HQ, and we’re giving away a total of 10 of them, to three different lucky winners in a blog contest now!

One of the actual Pathtags

Many readers may remember we also gave away 10 of our Pathtags via a blog contest in September, 2013.  Not to one person though, we spread them around a little bit. As before, we will have three separate winners. The 1st prize winner will receive 5 of our Pathtags; the 2nd prize winner will receive 3 of our Pathtags; and the 3rd prize winner will receive a paltry 2 of our Pathtags. These tags were designed by our Graphic Artist Patrick Williams, of course with plenty of design input from the OCNA team. They turned out very nicely, in “OCNA Colors”, and have a stock “yours to keep” back in black and yellow, with the tracking number on the back for logging.

To enter the 2nd OCNA Pathtag giveaway, fill out the form below with your name (as it says, “Geonick” is fine), and a valid email address. Note though, that someone entered our last contest as Geonick, and that’s already been done, and was only funny once. (They didn’t win, by the way). We will never use your email address, and the Google Document storing all the entries will be deleted after the contest. There are rules, of course, which appear below, in italicized text above the entry form.


Rules: To enter, provide your name and email address in the form below. One entry per person, and one entry per email address. There are no Geographical restrictions, contest is open to anyone in the world. The contest begins upon publication of this blog post on Thursday, March 20th, 2014, and ends at 7:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, March 30th, 2014. Three winners will be chosen at random from the entries received. Winners will be notified via email, notification being sent from the email address opencachingnorthamerica at gmail.com (be sure to check your spam folders!), and must respond within 48 hours, or the prize will be forfeited, and another winner will be chosen. Once the prize is accepted, you must provide a valid mailing address, and the prize will be sent out via the U.S. Postal Service .
