About This Cartridge

Bob was a true pioneer of Arizona caching. At the Deer Valley Ten Year Event Cache (5/2010), when they conducted the countdown of who had been caching the longest, Bob (who can be seen in the group photo on that cache page, front row center in the white hat) was the "last man standing". Bob placed Arizona's second geocache in October, 2000. It's still active and is a worthy and worthwhile challenge.

Bob made many other contributions to Arizona caching. He created Arizona's first event cache in March 2001. He created what is certainly one of the first multi-caches in the state, and it is still active today. He set a still-active cache at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. And his still-active "Box O Books" cache (GCB0B) is probably the only cache anywhere that not only has a GC ID that is an acronym of the cache title, but also a GC ID that is identical to the hider's name!

Bob is survived by his wife, Marion, and two sons.

#6500 at 6:10 p.m.: I found your cache today and it's in good shape. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, too! Another favorited cache. Each took me only about 30 minutes and this was my third WIG in a row!

Great Wherigo! It worked well at each of our designed stops, and the information furnished was interesting, and appropriate. Thanks for bringing us to this area, educating us a bit about "Bob" and providing a first class Wherigo experience'

Visiting from NV. I've noticed this WIGO on multiple occasions and had an opportunity to play it during this trip. I couldn't figure out why we were playing it in the parking lot but everything made sense at the stage prior to the GZ coords. Good tribute to a pioneer of AZ geocaching.

WIGO cartridge worked well on both on our iPad and iPhone. I know the amount of work that goes into making WIGO cartridges, so here's your favorite point. I invite you to visit any of my WIGOs in Reno, NV. I have a certain 5/5 WIGO you might enjoy.

This is the first Wherigo we played with our new Garmin Oregon 450t. Thanks for a great tribute to one of Arizona's original geocachers.
