Help This Blog Post Help You Geocache




There’s No Place Like Home (Coordinates)


If you’re seeing new nearby geocaches and nearby Event Caches listed in your weekly installment of the Geocaching Newsletter, you’re already a geocaching mastermind. You know that by pinpointing your location in your profile, the weekly newsletter becomes your personal geocaching assistant. If you’re not seeing new nearby geocaches or Event Caches, simply go to the Manage Location page and move the arrow to a nearby location or type in your home address. This will enter your “Home Coordinates.”

Each week Geocaching HQ will serve up the newest geocaches around your location. We’ll also tell you about nearby events, where you can put geocaching names to faces and meet the geocachers you’ve only seen on log sheets.

To receive the Weekly Newsletter simply go to the Email Preference Center.

    The “Nearby Events” section of the weekly newsletter should be sorted (or be sortable) by distance instead of by date. In my case, even small-ish (<10 will attend) events up to distances of 186 miles are shown. In such a list, the one event in my hometown in 3 days is easily overlooked.

    Timely information. I had just received and email from a new local cacher asking how to do this…. then the next day this arrives. Good information.
