Tools Of The (CITO) Trade

Cache In Trash Out®, also known at CITO, is an ongoing environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching community. Since 2002, geocachers around the world have been dedicated to improving parks and other cache-friendly places.

Journey to the Center of the EarthCache

Earlier this year, the Geocaching HQ video team followed a team of brave geocachers on an endeavor that is unprecedented in the Geocaching world. Their ultimate goal: to find the most difficult EarthCache in the world. The video detailing their journey is now live for the geocaching community. EarthCaches were created as a joint partnership with Geocaching.com and the Geological Society of America. There’s no physical container, but each EarthCache teaches you an Earth science lesson. Once at the coordinates, geocachers must answer certain questions in order to log a find. Find an EarthCache near you. Ready to join the […]

Komm mit auf die Reise zum Mittelpunkt des EarthCaches

Werde Teil des harten Kerns der EarthCacher Anfang dieses Jahres folgte das Videoteam des Geocaching-Hauptquartiers einer Gruppe von mutigen Geocachern bei einem bisher einmaligen Unterfangen.

Schau das Video an und folge diesen begeisterten Geocachern auf ihrer Reise […]

The Original Geocaching Bling Turns 12

There’s a magnetism to Geocaching Geocoins: the weight, the metallic shimmer and how each Geocoin is a message forged in metal. Some celebrate milestones like First to Find or 100 Finds, and some are just cool, like an eagle whose wings actually flap (fly eagle, fly!). 12 years ago on September 30, 2001, Geocoins came into existence with a solid clunk in a geocache. Today more than 3 million Geocoins are proudly displayed in collections and found in geocaches around the world. There are even Geocoinfest Mega-Events held in Europe and the United States each year. If you’re entering the realm of Geocoins, here are a few quick […]

Essentials for Your Geocaching Adventure

The great explorers who charted the globe knew a thing or two about being prepared. They crafted a checklist of essentials before they even thought about leaving homeport. You’re now among the newest generation of explorers, but your checklist still needs the same essentials and a few brilliant new innovations (like bug spray). A geocaching adventure begins with a plan and then a backup plan. Make sure you tell someone where your journey is taking you, just in case you’re late returning. Bring water, extra batteries, a cell phone, the correct clothes for the climate, and the aforementioned bug spray. […]
