The Ultimate Hiding Tool — Swiss Army Knife of Geocache Containers (GC53TZQ) — Geocache of the Week

first_imgWhat the geocache owner, eatdonutsfirst, has to say:“There are so many cachers I know of that have a cache next to where they live. When I am invited to their house to start a day of caching I am given a GC number and not a street address. It is so fun to pull up to a find and not just a house. I put out this cache for that reason.“The idea for the Swiss Army Knife of so many of my favorite cache containers brewed in my brain for months. It had to fit many containers, it had to fold well, it had to be durable, and it had to be fun. With those basic needs in mind I collected containers from craft stores and friends for about a month. Assembly took just a weekend.“The positive logs make me smile. I am so lucky to use a woodworking talent to share a fun cache with others. The wonderful logs probably make me smile as much as the cachers who have found the cache… Thank You so much to all of you cache hiders. It is because of you that the game keeps going on. Keep being creative and keep challenging me to get my smiley. I love to work for the find.”What geocachers are saying:“We truly enjoyed finding all the logs – and signing them, just to be sure. We couldn’t remember if the ‘real’ log was a red herring or not. We really appreciated the effort and time you spent to create such a unique and FUN cache. Thanks!” – TrekkingTurtles“When we arrived I wasn’t sure quite what to expect but soon had things figured out and the cache in hand. It’s one of the most interesting caches I’ve found as well as being one of a kind. Loved it!” – MrWalkie“travelchick raved so much about this cache that I determined to stop by for a visit. My chance came this morning, and I grinned with delight as I explored this marvelous, ingenious “knife”. Bravo for a job superbly done! Thank you for a unique, clever, marvelously constructed cache! Another Favorite point for this one, and I wish I could give it more!” – charliewhiskeyPhotos:All the tools you could need.

RIMES terms Titli cyclone ‘rarest of rare’

first_imgA vehicle is stuck on a road at Gopalpur, Odisha. The Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System (RIMES) for Africa and Asia, a 45-nation international organisation on disaster warning, has termed ‘Titli’, the severe cyclonic storm that devastated Odisha in October, as ‘rarest cyclone’.“More than 200 years of cyclone track history in the Odisha coast reveals that the Titli cyclone is the rarest of rare in terms of its characteristics such as recurvature after landfall and retaining its destructive potential after landfall and recurvature away from the coastal areas for more than two days,” says RIMES in its latest report.Also Read A fisherman caught in the wind and rain as cyclone Titli makes landfall near Gopalpur coast. Cyclone Titli leaves behind a trail of misery in Odisha Fishermen take shelter near Gopalpur coast of Bay of Bengal Sea in Ganjam district of Odisha, 170 km away from Bhubaneswar.  The UN-registered organisation said: “Considering the history of cyclone tracks, no synthetic track projection captures the Titli type of cyclones. The forecast information available lacks actionable early warning information such as no indication of occurrence of secondary hazards, including landslides far away from the coasts.”The severe cyclonic storm left more than 60 people dead, mainly due to land slide in interior Gajapati district. Odisha, which takes immense pride in disaster preparedness, was confounded in the wake of the damage to both life and property caused by Titli in interior districts.Earlier, India Meteorological Department had called the formation of Titli as a ‘rarest of rare’ occurrence. The severe cyclone had changed its path after landfall. A water-logged road in Aska town in Ganjam district of Odisha. Flood affected area of Aska town is seen from a Navy helicopter deployed for relief work in Ganjam district of Odisha.  According to RIMES, the Odisha State Disaster Management Authority faced challenges in anticipating and managing Titli’s impact due to lack of impact-based actionable early warning information and prior experience not only in India but also elsewhere.“The OSDMA, by learning the lessons from Titli cyclone, could evolve measures to minimise impacts in both coastal and non-coastal regions more effectively in future,” it said.The international body said: “The State government actions linked to the cyclone-risk management are also heavily focused on the coastal areas where cyclones cross at their peak intensities. Therefore, coastal areas now have been largely well managed through evacuations and other protocols, leading to zero casualties in these areas.”“The highest number of casualties occurred in a village called Baraghara in Gajapati district due to landslides. People did not evacuate, as the risk is unknown and also not expected. There was no pin-pointed forecast available what will happen where,” it said.The RIMES has recommended that a detailed risk assessment has to be carried out for Odisha to understand the risks in the light of the Titli devastation.
