Lab caches are controversial – but no- one is arguing with Jenson the Labrador! Jenson and his owner were out walking in the woods when something caught his eye and he ‘hared off' into the undergrowth, bringing back a cache box! Jenson’s owner looked up geocaching on the web and found Geocacheland and the GAGB.
Between us, we worked out which cache it was and contacted the owner – and found it had been missing for a while! The cache had been muggled a while back and was far from its proper location!
Besides instantly becoming a top-rated cache finder, Jenson the lab is also a rather handsome dog – we think you’ll agree – and certainly looks the part as a treasure hunter!
Geocacheland has celebrated the event with a Jenson the Geohound geocoin– retailing at £9 each – and is donating £1 per coin to the GAGB. This means £300 extra funding for us and an opportunity to tell you all about Jenson!
If you want to get your hands on one of the last remaining Jenson coins, head over to Geocacheland now, and don’t forget that as well as giving GAGB members a 5% discount, they always give a duck with every order!
GAGB labels are also a ‘must buy’ – if your cache is found by a muggle, having an all-weather external GAGB sticker on it will help ensure it is returned to you promptly. Visit our shop and pick up a set of labels now, before your own cache boxes get ‘doggled’!
A BIG thanks to GeocacheLand for their generous donation!
