Each of the more than 1.3 million geocaches around the world share an adventure and tell a story. We call it the “Language of Location.” A Geocaching.com video crew tracked three stories from Larry Yuzuki (NakoTacoPatrol) and friends in Los Angeles, California, Trez Moore (Trez*) at Lake Lanier, Georgia and Molly Shock (mshock) in Hollywood, California. Each geocacher shares the story of what makes the location of their favorite cache so captivating, and what that location says to them.
Trez revisits his very first find in Georgia which hooked him on geocaching in 2002. This location, deep in the woods, has a personal and sentimental history.
NakoTacoPatrol along with geocaching friends visit a string a caches he placed along a breathtaking look out. He’d lived next to the hiking path for almost half a decade and never knew it existed. He decided the location had to be shared with other geocachers and placed a cache series called, “The Queen’s Necklace.” You’ll have to watch the video to find out how the cache series got its name.
Mshock shows us a rare view of the Hollywood sign that she might never have found were there not a cache in the area. She loves caching for its historical significance, specifically related to films that she loves.
