It takes THREE — Geocache of the Week

first_imgFriends are great for laughing, building confidence, and helping to find geocaches. These are the foundations of any true friendship. While we all need a friend to lean on from time to time for a smiley, there are a few caches that require you to bring friends along. For this geocache, it takes two. Difficulty:3Terrain:1.5 Location:Washington, United StatesN 47° 31.965′ W 122° 02.179′ TraditionalGC7WE07by Bouncebouncecenter_img SharePrint RelatedHow to have a ball when creating a geocache: Interview with cache owner Bouncebounce!April 23, 2019In “News”S.P.D. #1 – Welcome! — Geocache of the WeekApril 26, 2017In “Geocache of the Week”Thank a geocaching volunteer dayMay 21, 2019In “Volunteers” Tucked away behind an archaic gas station in Washington state is a Traditional Cache—an expert collaboration between two prominent hiders: Bouncebounce & Goblindust. Both cache owners are electronically adept and have the geocaching acumen to pull something like this off. If you’ve heard these names before, it is no surprise that electronics and buttons are involved to solve this cache.As soon as you walk behind the building, you come face to face with a giant cigar sign: your smoking gun that lets you know there’s a geocache nearby. Even if you spot the container, it isn’t enough. It’s up to you to find six buttons scattered throughout the area. They are inconveniently placed too far away to reach for one or two people to “pole” off, therefore teamwork is essential to clinch this smiley. If your team is in position to press all six buttons at the same time, you’ll be in funny positions and the cache container will magically open to reveal what’s inside. SWAG, trackables, and a ‘sasquatch search agency’ sticker appear,along with the logbook for you and your team to sign.Bouncebounce and Goblindust put their minds together to create this fun and entertaining geocache which promotes teamwork within the community. Reading through the logs on the cache page is a testament to how engaging and thoughtful this geocache is. Goblindust’s creative hides were previously highlighted in our blog, so we’re giving a shout out to Bouncebounce about how he comes up with his creative cache concepts. Look out for the interview tomorrow!Share with your Friends:Morelast_img read more

Marriage not ‘good enough’ to quash rape FIR: Delhi HC

first_imgIs marriage a “good enough” reason to quash an FIR for rape if both the offender and the victim decide to settle the case? The Delhi High Court says no.In a significant verdict that will have implications on a large number of rape cases in India, the High Court has ruled that the offence of rape falls under the category of “heinous and serious crime” which cannot be quashed even if the parties have settled their dispute or got married.A large chunk of the rape cases in India are reported against those who were known to the victim.The latest report of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) shows that of a total of 32,559 cases of rape reported across the country in 2017, in one-third or 10,553 cases the victim and offender were either friends, online friends, live-in partners or separated husbands.The High Court verdict delivered last week by Justice Brijesh Sethi came on a petition by a man seeking to quash an FIR for rape registered against him in September 2013 at the Safdarjung Enclave police station here by his live-in partner.The woman in her complaint had stated that she and the man had been living together at a rented accommodation in Gautam Nagar for about five months.During this period, she stated that “on his false allurement of marriage and after repeated insistence, cohabited with him”.She had complained that despite her repeated insistence on marriage, he had refused and in August 2013, he left her following an altercation.last_img read more
