Geocaching for beginners

  • Mar 30, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • Hareskoven S-station

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt. You walk around looking for geocaches that have been hidden by other geocachers. When found you log your visit since all caches at least contain a logbook (you can also log it online at geocaching.com and share you're experience with other geocachers).

Some caches also contain "treasures", so remember to bring some small items since you have to leave a "treasure" if you take one.

For more info about geocaching you can look here.

As you can see here, there are plenty of geocaches in the area.

Since the meetup starts close to lunch time it might be an idea to bring lunch or a snack.


If anyone has a GPS device that supports input of latitude/longitude coordinates please bring it.

You can also use your phone for geocaching.

Geocaching.com has an official app for Android, IOS and Windows Phone 7, although it has some limitations in the free edition. There are also third party apps you can use. 

Please check out the following links for ios and android 

http://www.notaboutthenumbers.com/2012/09/03/top-5-iphone-apps-for-geocaching/ og http://www.notaboutthenumbers.com/2012/05/11/top-5-android-geocaching-apps/

However, all apps usually require that you have an account on geocaching.com, so if you wan’t to use your phone for geocaching create an account and install one of the apps in advance.

We will be bringing a few GPSes, so you can try one of them as well. We will not have enough for everyone so people will have to take turns using them (or use their phone)

    Hi! I tried to remove the +1 from my RSVP because my sister cannot make it on Sunday. But after I chose "Just me", I was put on Waitlist. Why?????? :-(

    March 28, 2014

    • Anne P.

      Hi mærose, i don't know how the waitlist/participant system works on the website, since i'm only a user, too. If you had a spot before then just show up anyways - but this is an absolut exception! We're already a big group and with too many people it will be a bad experience for everyone. See you tomorrow.

      Thank you Anne! I will be there. :)

  • Neha

    Hello
    As I mentioned earlier, I am on the waiting list. Can I still come?

    March 29, 2014

    • Anne P.

      No, I'm sorry. You can NOT participate when only on the waitlist. We're probably gonna repeat this meetup - so look out for it.

      March 29, 2014

    • Neha

      Sure, thanks. Have fun tom. Look forward to the next one!

      March 29, 2014

  • Anne P.

    Remember the clocks are set on summertime tonight! + 1 hour

    1 · March 29, 2014

  • Anne P.

    Hey there! Please update your rsvp if you're unable to come! There are many people on the waitlist!
    You can NOT participate when only on the waitlist.

  • maja puch n.

    hey - sounds like a great event :-) I am just wandering, since I would like to go ;-)...: Why is a waiting list needed for this event? couldn't everyone interested join? as long as they are ok with the lack of GPSes/ as long as you get the app yourself..?

    March 2, 2014

    • Anne P.

      Dear maja, stamping through the woods with 25+ people is no fun for anyone. So we will have to devide in smaller groups. Anyhow this is the maximum of people we believe it is possible to give an introduction to outdoors and what we feel comfortable with. Thanks for your understanding.

      March 6, 2014

    • Roger S.

      I've organized a few meetup events, and then turnout is usually around 50-60%. If you're signed up and don't show up, you're keeping someone on the waiting list from attending a fun event. Just saying.

      March 29, 2014

  • Neha

    Hi All
    This might be late in the conversation but I am on the Waiting List like many at the start of this meet up. Can I still come>?

    Does that mean I can no longer participate?

    March 28, 2014

  • Anne P.

    Dear all, looking forward to geocaching with you on sunday! If you wanna use your mobilephone, please make sure to have downloaded an app and get acquainted with it beforehand. And , if reqiuired by the app, create an account on geocaching.com.
    We're a very big group, i'm a newbie to caching too, so please be a bit patient with us :)

  • Bhuvanesh

    Interested to know what geocaching is all about

    February 15, 2014

  • Anne P.

    Dear all, there are already people on the waitlist for this meetup. Please make sure to update your rsvp if you should have a change of plans for that day and should not be able to participate anyways, so others have a chance to take part in the meetup. Thank you for being considerate!

    January 23, 2014

  • Anne P.

    Hey everyone! We're quite overwhelmed by the popularity of this meetup! We're trying to get another experienced geocacher onboard for this day, so we can split up into at least two groups. Nice, that there are so many of you interested.
