Get Lost with Geocaching and Wild Basin

There’s a pristine, untamed place in the Rocky Mountains called Wild Basin, where tall trees stand sentinel over winding paths and bubbling waterfalls. It’s a place people visit to escape, get away from wifi, work, and social media. It’s a place people ago to Get Lost. Wild Basin Hard Seltzer is named for this mountain wonderland, with hand-crafted flavors inspired by nature.

Grab a can of Wild Basin, ditch your responsibilities, and take a hike because getting outside can improve your life. Studies show that just five minutes of exercising outside can increase your mood and self-esteem. That’s why we’re partnering with Geocaching to send adventurous souls like you out into the wild to seek prizes totaling $15,000. 

Sign in to your Geocaching account and fill out a form here to apply for a Wild Basin trackable, then share your Wild Basin + Geocaching experience on social media with the hashtags #WildBasinGetLost and #Sweepstakes for the chance to win a Wild Basin hammock.

Discover hidden gems by filtering with Favorite points

Have you ever filtered your geocache search by a certain number of Favorite points? Using this filter makes it easy to see which geocaches stand out from the rest and are community favorites.

But how exactly does filtering for Favorite points change my usual search for geocaches? We’re glad you asked! For a specific example, let’s take a look at what a cache outing in London looks like when you use this Premium feature. London is a big city with a lot of geocaches. Even for local geocachers it can be difficult to narrow down a search when there are so many to choose from. Of course there are popular caches hidden at big attractions and landmarks, but it’s tough to look at the map and pick out caches that will take you to tucked away hidden gems. With the filter for Favorite points, this becomes much easier.
