How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache CANNOT be accessed by I 95 or I 395 directly.
This Post Office box is located on the property of the Cole Land Transportation Museum. Please, as with any cache, treat this property with respect.
This is a Geo-Post Office!
It is used to swap letters and postcards between geocachers!
Here is how it works:
Caches are placed to hold postcards. Each postcard will have a short message and a forwarding address on it. The address will contain the person's name that you are trying to send the postcard to, their home city, and a destination cache. The idea is to move postcards between Geo-Post Offices until they reach their destination. When you move a postcard or message from one place to another, let the person who it's being sent to know where you moved it to, because they might be near enough to go and pick it up. If you move a postcard from one Geo-Post Office to another, please move it closer to the city or cache!
You can send any message you want to anyone you want!
How do you get started? Easy! Just write up your postcard and drop it in the Geo-Post Office!
If there are any postcards in the cache when you arrive, feel free to forward them on if you can. If not, don't worry, just leave them for the next cacher.
The cache is a regular sized ammo box. There is no swag in the cache, it is for postcards and trackables only. Please don't feel that you have to run out and spend your hard-earned cash on a postcard at the store. You can print and laminate a huge variety of postcards off the internet. Plus, I've added a few unused postcards to the box.
Accuracy plus/minus 8m due to the tree cover.
For a complete list of Geo-Post Office's please see Zonker's list.
