is the one who discovered geocaching. She sets up the caching adventures and keeps the backpack loaded with supplies. In addition, Nancy drives the cachemobile over hill, over dale and often times, the dusty trail. She also designs, produces and maintains all of the many cache hides and adventure labs owned by the Deadliest Cachers.
She is retired from the largest toy store in the world, which was a perfect fit to her claim of being just a 'big kid' at heart. In addition to geocaching, Nancy enjoys writing, graphic arts and studying the Bible. Read her story.

We are the Deadliest Cachers...
a 'sister act' from Western New York USA.
The Deadliest Cachers have been geocaching since August 2011, with close to 4000 finds and a vast multitude of hides. They have attended many Mega Events which include MOGA, GeoWoodstocks, the ASPGBs and Going Caching, so you may have seen them around. Starting in 2014 they have held a yearly themed event/challenge for the enjoyment of their local geocaching community. In past years event goers have been taken on a Journey to the Center of the Earth, partnered with Indiana Jones to locate the Deadliest Cache, been marooned on Pork Chop Island, have had to brave things that go bump in the night during Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night, had to find the Christmas that was stolen by the Grinch and have Gone Batty at Como Lake Park. The DC also have many cache series out in the field which include the Trekkie Trail, the Dr. Seuss Series, the Wendt Beach Crazy Crab Series, the Creepy Cache Series and the A Christmas Story Series. They enjoy placing cleverly hidden caches and also finding geocaches with unique containers. If you are ever in Western New York be sure to look them up and say, "hi."
In 2021, Nancy was the architect of a project called the Erie Canal Adventure Lab Trail. The project resulted in the placement of 69 adventure labs, created by 51 storytellers, spanning from Buffalo to Albany, New York. This trail is the complete length of the Erie Canal.
In 2023, Nancy introduced OPERATION Worldwide Cache Hide to the global geocaching community. It's a series of projects that are designed to bring cache hiders together to create specially themed hides that are mass-published on a specific day.
The Geocaching Central website is a way for the DC to give something back to the world-wide geocaching community. The site was designed as an access hub for all things related to geocaching. Visitors are invited to submit their favorite links to keep the directory growing with all of the latest information about the unique world of geocaching.
