Want a Reward for Finding Geocaches? Keep Reading…

My name is Rock Chalk and I’m addicted to GeoTours and geotrails which offer rewards. Whew. That feels better. Now that I’ve admitted my problem, perhaps I can persuade you to follow me into a realm where one can earn geocoins and other prizes, just for finding geocaches. (As if finding geocaches isn’t rewarding enough!) I currently work at Geocaching HQ in Seattle. But long before joining the team here, I discovered my passion for GeoTours and geotrails.

Happy Pi Day, Earn Two Souvenirs

Geek Out with Two New Souvenirs for Pi Day While some folks celebrate Pi Day on March 14 (3.14) with a slice of pi pie, we’re celebrating this year’s Pi Day with two new souvenirs. The first souvenir is inspired by the groups of people who have an irrational love for irrational numbers. Just attend an event, including CITO or a Mega-Event on Pi Day and you’ll earn this souvenir. The second souvenir celebrates the mystery of pi—to earn it, log a “Found It” on a Mystery Cache on March 14. Speaking of Mystery Caches—they’re now available for Geocaching Premium […]

Your Path to Platinum EarthCaching

EarthCaching started in January 2004 when I placed the first EarthCache with my daughter on a headland in southern Australia.  My goal was to teach geocachers more about the wonderful geology of our planet.  […]
