This group is for people who love being outdoors and have a sense of adventure. Join us in looking for many of the 1000s of geocaches hidden all over Greater Vancouver in parks and along walking paths. You are guaranteed to have fun, discover lots of cool new places, and get lots of steps on the Fitbit. All ages and fitness levels welcome. Looking forward to meeting you!
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game. It’s easy to get started! You use your smartphone to navigate to different locations and then find the geocaches hidden there. If you don’t have a phone, that’s fine too, as we’re going as a group.
Geocaches are containers hidden by people like you and me. Typically, you’ll find a small lock n lock container with a logbook and trinkets for trading. Of course, that’s just one type of geocache. They are all sizes and sometimes very cleverly camouflaged! When you find it, you sign the logbook, trade items if you like, and rehide it where you found it. We will be finding geocaches listed on http://www.geocaching.com . The official Geocaching app (by Groundspeak) is free and you can get it for your iPhone or Android.
When joining, please upload a profile photo of your face and use your real first name.
You are expected to update your RSVP to a "No" if you change your mind. More than 2 no-shows may result in me removing you from the group. ( A no-show means your RSVP said "Yes", but you didn't come. Changing your RSVP to "No" less than 2 hours before a meetup will also be considered a no-show.)
If I set an attendance limit, an RSVP deadline, or ask you to pay in advance etc. please don't message me and ask for an exception as this type of thing makes me loopy. :-)
A note to the guys: I'm not single nor am I interested in you so please don't come to meetups just to check me out. The focus of this group is friendship.
