What is Geocaching?
Geocaching (pronounced: geo • cashing) is a game invented by pirates. Well, not exactly. But they were definitely on to something. As legend goes, swashbucklers hid their treasure and marked the spot so that they could find it again. Geocaching works the same way – only advances in technology have taken things to a whole new level.
Grab your GPS. It’s time to geocache.
Hidden treasure troves – known as caches – have been hidden around the world. Their coordinates have been uploaded to our website along with details and clues. All you have to do is load this information into a compatible GPS device and set out on an adventure to find them. If you want to take something from the cache, be sure to have something to leave behind for the next person to find.
Packing list - Prep for the hunt
We know you’re excited to get started. But you’ll need to resist the urge to hit the trail the moment you load caches into your device. A successful geocaching adventure takes a little planning to keep things safe and fun.
First, start by reading the description and logs for the caches you’ve chosen to hunt. Look to see if anyone has logged any specific advice to help you out. This will also let you know if anyone has had difficulties finding the cache lately – an indicator that it might no longer be there.
Also take a moment to consider the terrain, weather and any other environmental considerations that might affect what you need to pack. For some caches, all you need is your GPS, but others might take more gear. Here’s a quick checklist of things you might want to consider bringing along*:
- A buddy
- Hiking shoes
- Bug spray
- Extra GPS batteries
- Pen and notebook
- Plenty of water
- Snacks or quick meals
- Something to leave behind in the caches if you want to take something
