We’re joining REI to #OptOutside this year

Believe it or not, it’s already November and just that much closer to the end of the year! At Geocaching, we recognize the power of getting outdoors and spending time in fresh air after long work days cooped up inside. Geocaching allows us the time to appreciate the natural beauty that’s outside our homes. Getting outside can significantly improve our well-being; this year is no different.

Once again, we invite you to explore the great outdoors by joining REI in choosing to #OptOutside on Black Friday (November 24). Let’s make it a tradition to get outside instead of spending the day standing in line. We encourage you to #OptOutside and spend your time immersed in nature. We challenge you to find your next (or first) geocache, hide a new geocache of your own, or discover a new hiking trail you’ve never visited.

Spend your Black Friday outside and share your exploration with us by using #geocaching and with REI by using #OptOutside on social media to let us know about your adventures. Choose the outdoors over consumption, and remember to always #RecreateResponsibly as you plan your holiday weekend. So get outside, appreciate all that nature offers, and enjoy the journey to your next geocache!
