What is GeoCaching?

GeoCaching is the gateway to the adventurer inside of us all.

GeoCaching starts off with a person leaving what is called a cache (pronounced "cash" or "kay-sh"). A cache can be anything from a film canister, to a large ammunition box. There are also things called MicroCaches, which are tiny containers that can be smaller than the end of your pinky finger.

The caches coordinates are then noted down and uploaded onto GeoCaching.com with a brief description and maybe some pictures illuding to the caches location.

Someone with an account can then access the caches profile at GeoCaching.com and collect the information to find it. If you have a premium account you can have the coordinates sent directly to a GPS, otherwise you can log them in manually.

If you do not have a GPS you can also download the mobile application to your and get directions off of that.

When you follow the directions you will be pointed towards an object, maybe a tree, maybe a rock, you can then follow the hints to try and find the cache.

Caches are often in similar places, and once you have been GeoCaching for long enough you can make assumptions to where caches will be hidden without the use of the hint provided.

When you find a cache and have it in your possession, be very careful to not get spotted.

Now that you have successfully logged on, found a chache, and quitely gotten it open, we get to the fun part. Inside will always be a log book, always bring a writing utensil when GeoCaching, so that you can log your name into the book. There may also be small goodies inside, small things left by others who have found the cache. You can take these things if you like, but basic etiquette is always nice, and it is best that if you take something you leave something in return.

Now that you know what GeoCaching is all about, time to get to the topic of this site. On the 10th of April 2016 a friend and I went GeoCaching around the mount. This page will be dedicated to the findings on our adventure.
