George Derby Conservation Area

Let's geocache our way through George Derby Conservation Area.  We'll meet on the corner of Cumberland and 16th Ave at 12:30pm and hit the trail from there.  Here is a list of target caches:

GC3QVA2

GC3G9FD

GC2XZGC

GC2GZE0

GC2Q7KM

GC3XZFQ

GC3XZ6W

GC11Q29

GC38M3M

GC3H96J

GC3H979

GC3VY8V

GC3H97N

GC14V91

 

Anyone new to geocaching is welcome to come along, with or without equipment.  Ahead of time, you may want to set up an account on geocaching.com and browse the website.  Geocaching requires the use of either a handheld GPSr device or an app on your smartphone.  I highly recommend an app, simply called "Geocaching", for anyone geocaching with an iPhone.  It costs $10 but it is the best ten bucks I've ever spent on an app.  I have an extra GPSr that I can load with the caches for this event and lend to someone.  You would have to provide two AA batteries.  Other items you may want to bring along in a small bag/backpack:  pen, flashlight, tweezers, gloves, small trinkets to trade for items found in the geocaches.

      Thanks Barb. Is this something you do individually, in teams, or all together? Sadly don't think I will make tomorrows meetup, but will try for the next one - sounds fun!

      This is something we would usually do in one small group. If a lot of people show up (not likely this time), I may split us into two groups if there is someone with enough experience to lead the second group. Hope to see you out at an event in the future!

    I wish I could come for the group's inaugural Meetup! But I'll be working (and probably last-minute packing for my trip that night). Have fun :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
