My Geocaching Adventures

As part of the Outdoor Moments To Remember Instagram campaign we’re running at the CVB during May, I downloaded a geocaching app. One post was dedicated to getting outside and try finding some caches as a family.

If you’re not familiar with geocaching, it began with the first global positioning satellites. The scientists wanted to make sure that it was going to work, so they hid a tracker and let the satellite search for it. Then they could adjust the programming as necessary.

What does this mean for us? It means we can use an app like Geocaching to find fun treasures hidden in our communities. Pictured above is the first cache I found after we created the CVB profile. It was hidden in the railing of one of the bridges - no spoilers ... you have to find it for yourself.

The app will give you a map of caches that have been registered in the area. Just click the Navigate button and you’re off! It will also give you a Log button to share your adventure of finding this hidden gem. Take along a pen for signing log books that might be inside, and it’s always fun to leave a trinket inside for the next person to find.

So get an app, get outside and start having fun with this digital scavenger hunt!
