The first rule of geocaching is: You do not talk about geocaching.
The second rule of geocaching is……
Just kidding. You can talk about geocaching. That’s not a rule. I just thought it was a sweet fight club reference. Lol.
There are a couple of rules though, but they are reeeeeeeeeally easy:
- If you take something from the geocache (or “cache”), leave something of equal or greater value.
- Write about your find in the cache logbook.
- Log your experience at www.geocaching.com.
We got hooked on our recent vacation to Maine. My sister has been trying to get me to try it for over a year now and I just kept telling her that I didn’t have time for something else in my life.
I was wrong. EVERYONE has time for geocaching.
What IS it though? Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
Check out the website which will probably explain it much better than me.
My sister took us on our first geocaching excursion around Dexter, Maine and the surrounding towns and we had a blast.

One of the beautiful things about tramping around in the backwoods of Maine is that you do not have to worry about running into poisonous spiders or snakes.
I think we found like ten the very first day. What fun!!
Until the next adventure……..
