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!

The forum of

Today in a treat on the forum of, a cacher was asking for URL's of blogs of geocachers. This blog was mentioned in one of the answers. So I suppose that it will be visited more often now and as my blog is a Waymark, some of the Belgian cachers will log this blog at

Halloween-event in the Netherlands

Together with Geowitch and Lucky kesj, I went to Roosendaal in the Netherlands to be part of the Halloween-event, organised by Team KarNie.
We were surprised that, after receiving the descriptions of the caches, these were all temporary caches and thus not loggable on the .com site! I must admit that we were not motivated to search for these caches. We were lucky that Geowitch had also taken the descriptions of other caches in the neigborhood and went for these ones. Before starting with the night cache of that event, we had already found 7 "real" caches. Together with the night cache and an attend for the event (even without a logbook) we could later that night log 9 caches.

1,000 FOUND IT's

Today I went to search a cache of Yohan, "De Oude Spoorwegberm - Waarloos", together with my wife and 2 friends of us, geomuggles. We enjoyed very much this multi-cache, a walk on an old railway line. I discovered rather quickly the stash, but let the muggles search for it. They were surprised to see how the box was hidden just where a lot of muggles enter a beautiful nature reserve without seeing it.

After I wrote my log I was proud to announce them that this was for me the 1,000th cache I found!

A few days later the geo-muggles phoned me and asked me if I could lend them a GPS. They want to give geocaching a try!

Geocaching in Roma, Firenze and Venezia

From the 19th till the 29th of September I was in Italy for a holliday together with our American cousins, Pat and Mike. We visited first Rome, hired then a car and drove through Tuscany to Firenze and after a visit of 3 days we continued to Venezia where we also stayed for 3 days.

During this trip I was able to do some Italian caches. I will always remember a cache hidden in a hole in the wall of the Vatican City. I could just touch it and not take it out of its hidding place. I had to log a DNF. But I could find 2 caches in Rome, 2 in Firenze and 5 in Venezia.
