Go GeoCaching

Lets meet somewhere around town and find as many Geocatches we can! Its fun for adults and kids. Ive hide a few in GA and want to tackle Texas. Grab your GPS and lets go! Dont have one? As long as we have a couple in the group that will be fine. What is Geocatching you ask?

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world.

A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. After signing the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (Tupperware or similar) or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little financial value, although sometimes they are sentimental. Geocaching shares many aspects with benchmarking, trigpointing, orienteering, treasure-hunting, letterboxing, and waymarking.

    Cool, I've never done this before. It sounds totally fun! I am a newbie, but I will learn. Do we go in groups? Partners? or what? I need to learn how to get started.

    There's an app called geocaching intro on the App Store. Anyone ever used it in place of a GPS?

    You should make a profile on geocaching.com before going out so you can log your finds as you find them. A free app for android devices that is awesome is c:geo

    One thing that you should think about is rainfall in the shaded areas that are harvesting mosquitoes. Another thing to consider is the muggle traffic, especially while showing new people.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
