Take a trip down Memory Lane…

At Geocaching HQ, we’re honored to be part of the worldwide community of adventure-seekers known as geocachers. As we continue through the 20th year of geocaching, we invite you to take a trip down Memory Lane to celebrate the community and the milestones that have made geocaching what it is today! 

We realize not everyone is able to go out caching right now so we are doing things a little different this year. Memory Lane will start on June 1st and be available all year long through January 3, 2021. Move through the Memory Lane game board by finding different geocache types to collect points and earn up to five new souvenirs!

Geocaching 20th Anniversary Celebration rescheduled to 2021

Due to uncertainties related to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), Geocaching HQ is postponing the Geocaching 20th Anniversary Celebration to 2021.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but we feel this is the best way to host the event in a safe and responsible manner. Many of you have made travel arrangements for the celebration and have been concerned about postponing your plans as the date draws nearer. So, although we hope we are able to meet at events by August, we know there is currently too much uncertainty to guarantee a safe event for all.

We look forward to welcoming geocachers to celebrate with us in Seattle next year!

Earth Day goes Digital: #EarthDay2020

Fifty years ago, Earth Day was started as an education opportunity, spreading the word about sparking transformative change for our environment and our planet. As we get ready to celebrate its 50th anniversary on April 22, you may be asking how you can celebrate Earth Day this year. 

With our normal means of celebrating Earth Day presenting a challenge for many—heading out to find an EarthCache or attend a CITO may not be possible right now—what’s a geocacher to do?

It’s always trackable season

Geocaching trackables add another level of fun to the game! Regardless of the season, trackables are always a good idea. Trackables are geocaching game pieces owned by geocachers. Each trackable is etched with a unique tracking code and given a goal by its owner. The goal may be to travel to another country or to visit as many beaches as possible, the sky’s the limit, (literally)! 

You can retrieve them, discover them, and even collect them! Trackables are placed in caches to be picked up by other geocachers, who help move them to their goals, but trackables are also popular at Events. If you find a trackable in a geocache, make it your mission to move the trackable along its way!

If you’re new to trackables or need a refresher, here is a guide to key trackable terms so that you know what to do the next time you come across a trackable in a cache. Please note that we understand the “next time” may be a while given the current state of the world. As always, please follow the guidelines from your regional health officials!
