Geocaching 101

For the past 8-9 years I have been part of the greatest treasure hunt in the world, Geocaching. Oh, you don’t know what it is? I’ll tell ya!

Quick video that explains Geocaching:

Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Your goal is to locate the geocache (container) using the coordinates and hints left by those who hid the geocache.

When you find the geocache, you are going to find a logbook and possibly “cache” or some treasure inside. If you take some treasure, you must leave something of equal or greater value inside the geocache for the next person who comes along.

The geocache come in all shapes and sizes, so don’t always be looking for a certain cache. This is a great way to spend the afternoon driving around town or walking in the woods trying to locate as many as you can!

If you want to try, here is the link to download the app to your phone:
