Geocaching: A Modern Treasure Hunting Experience

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook (with a pen or pencil). The geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. After signing the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (Tupperware or similar) or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little financial value, although sometimes they are sentimental.

How to Have Fun Geocaching

  1. Make sure you have a working, accurate, easy to use handheld GPS. If you have an iPhone or other smartphone, you can also download the Geocaching app from the app store
  2. Find a source for your caches. Go to
  3. Look for cache activities that sound most exciting to you. Some caching games have prizes inside of the caches, others have codes you can turn in for rewards.
  4. Find a group of friends who also geocache. It will help you have more fun, as well as making it easier, if you go geocaching with a group of friends. Friends with similar interests will lighten it up too!

  1. Howdy! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my previous room mate!
    He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this
    write-up to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. My friend and I went camping the other day. It was a very bad experience, as he wouldn’t let me sleep all night. He kept talking about random stories and whined about his anxiety. I totally told him to [link removed] and deal with it.

  3. Having read this I thought it was really informative.

    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this
    informative article together. I once again find
    myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  4. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also
    with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you
    modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing,
    it’s rare to see a great blog like this one these days.
