Apple pie, pizza pie, shepherd’s pie, it does not matter. All things delicious and pie like are always appreciated – especially at Pi Day events.
Think creatively about how you can have fun around geocaching and what activities you can have at your event to create that fun. Is it a pie eating contest or a competition to solve a math puzzle and open a geocache container the quickest? The ideas and opportunities are, much like the decimals in pi, endless.
Break out of your “algorithm” for inviting only your closest geocaching friends and think about others that we know that would enjoy geocaching (and pie) as much as we do. You can even invite them to invite their friends too (does that count as the .14?)
When I first saw this geocache, the thing that struck me was the incredible description! I didn’t understand any of it (I don’t speak Portuguese), but I could definitely see the time and effort that went into creating the story and images. From there, a quick look at the logs and the photos showed that this geocache was more than just a pretty description—the container itself is an elaborate puzzle box. Geocache owners that put this much effort into a geocache deserve to be recognized!

We’re excited to announce the launch of the new geocache search tool. It’s faster, easier to use and helps you find the exact adventure you want—and it’s all thanks to the geocaching community. We started the upgrade by asking geocachers what they wanted, then gave Geocaching Premium members a Sneak Peek at the new tool before launch.
Now the new search is ready for prime time. Take it for a spin by searching for Pi Day events and Mystery Caches near you so you can earn your Pi Day souvenirs on March 14.
And speaking of new upgrades to Geocaching.com, check out the new Hide a Geocache page. It’s designed to be more helpful for new geocache hiders and streamlined for seasoned geocachers. See the new Hide a Geocache page.

It’s faster, easier to use and helps you find the exact adventure you want—and it’s all thanks to you, the geocaching community.
Why are some sorting and filtering options only available to Geocaching Premium members?
Geocaching Premium member subscriptions help provide the resources to develop new tools like Search that create a more personalized geocaching experience. We recognize the contributions of our Premium members by allowing them exclusive access to tools that take geocaching beyond the everyday.
I want to export these awesome results to my phone and/or GPS! How do I do that?
We’re with you there! This first release is about providing the best tool we can to help players find exactly the geocaches they want to find. Of course, we know that players will want to do cool things with the lists of geocaches the tool returns (like download them to a GPS, sync to the app, add to a list, etc). Our next releases will focus on those kind of actions.
How do I save my search results for easy access at a later time?
At this time, the best way to do this is to bookmark the URL in your browser. Each search result contains a query string specific to your search filters. In other words, that URL will always bring you back to the results you’d like to save. And keep in mind, we are working on a saved search feature which should be available in the future.
I heard a rumor that I can now search for the Mystery Caches that I have solved, but not yet found. How do I do this?
When performing your search, check ‘Mystery Cache’, click ‘I Haven’t Found’ and toggle ‘Has Corrected Coordinates’ to ‘Yes’. This will then list the Mystery Caches you have solved. This feature is available to Geocaching Premium members.
How has Search made planning geocache outings with my buddies easier?
No need to repeat adventures! With the new Search tool, you can return only geocaches that you and all of your friends have not yet found. Geocaching Premium members have access to the ‘Not Found By’ filter which allows you to enter up to five usernames and will return a search of geocaches not found by all of the usernames listed.
How do I search for the most favorited geocaches in my area?
Easy! Enter the city name and country name (or an address), the difficulty/terrain (D/T) rating, and the minimum number of Favorite Points of the geocaches you want to find.
How can I find the geocaches located in my state that I need to complete a challenge like the Fizzy Grid?
First, leave the location box empty. Add your state to the “Search only in…” filter. Then, adjust the D/T rating to the single combination that you need. From there, good luck!
