Barontoo's Blogspot

Welcome on the webblog of Barontoo, the first Belgian blog listed as a WAYMARK. I started this blog in July 2005 in my mothertongue Dutch. But since it is listed as a Waymark I continue to write my comments in English. So take a look at it, post somewhere a comment and do not forget to log it! To do so click on the 1st link in the left frame hereunder and click then on "Visit Waymark (Post log)". Thanks!

Cloudy, rain and a lot of wind

This was the forecast for today. So what can one do: try to solve some puzzle caches as these ones and surf on the Internet.

Ever heard of Podcacher? Must be nice to do it that way. But there are not yet any such caches in Belgium. I listened to the first PodCache in Australia. Using Google Earth, I could locate the starting co-ordinates. But there, my walk ended ...

And found also The Caching Pump. Listen before you go out caching.

B.t.w. The construction in front of our home is growing slowly. See my blog of Februari 19.

Geocaching Belgian Mega Event

On Saturday September 26 and Sunday 27, I was present together with other members of our team Enjoy, at this Mega event organised by the board of Geocaching Belgium. The Saturday morning started with 12 caches. And on every starting point one could find the answers to log a special one. The 13 cache of that day.
In the evening almost 100 cachers were ready for the nightcache. It was a difficult one, not only to find your way through the woods and the answers on evenry WP but it was also a very long walk. We did it in 4.5 hours. But we did a good job. We ended second with 5 mistakes, only one more than the winner.
After a short night we continued to search for some new caches in this beautiful region. At the end of the weekend I could log 23 caches!

Geocaching in Perwez

Today I was present at an event organised by 2 Belgian geocachers in a small village in the south of Brabant Walloon. It was a very good organised event. The written press, a local radiostation and even a camera-man with interviewer were present together with a lot of geocachers and "géomoldus" (=muggles). These last ones were very intersted in our sport and I hope that they will soon become new geocachers. I enjoyed searching all those beautiful caches in and around Perwez.

Djerba or Bredene?

Today Nicole, my wife, and Severine, my sister's daughter, left for a one week holliday on Djerba (Tunisia). So I am free the next weekend. Good to do some caches at the Belgian coast :-)
