Geocache Description:


This is a Geo-Post Office!

(As well as possibly the worlds easiest cache.)

It is used to swap letters and postcards between geocachers!

Here is how it works:

Caches are placed to hold postcards. Each postcard will have a short message and a forwarding address on it. The address will contain the person's name that you are trying to send the postcard to, their home city, and a destination cache. The idea is to move postcards between Geo-Post Offices until they reach their destination. When you move a postcard or message from one place to another, let the person who it's being sent to know where you moved it to, because they might be near enough to go and pick it up. If you move a postcard from one Geo-Post Office to another, please move it closer to the city or cache!

You can use the following picture as a guide to the format to use when writing up a postcard address

You can send any message you want to anyone you want!

How do you get started? Easy! Just write up your postcard and drop it in the Geo-Post Office!

If there are any postcards in the cache when you arrive, feel free to forward them on if you can. If not, don't worry, just leave them for the next cacher.

The cache is small, very obvious box. There is no swag in the cache, it is for postcards and trackables only. Please don't feel that you have to run out and spend your hard-earned cash on a postcard at the store. You can print and laminate a huge variety of postcards off the internet. We have also place a small number of blanks in the cache. If you have some blank cards, feel free to leave them for others to use. Of course, you can just sign the log book as any other cache.

Regarding Travel Bugs and Coins. Travel bugs ARE NOT TRADE ITEMS. The important thing is to keep these bugs moving. There is no trade requirement on bugs or coins. You can take one and leave one, you can take one, and leave none, or you can take ten and....well....you get the idea. The only requirement is that you keep them moving, hopefully closer toward any goals they have.

OK, so here are your options;

 

1) Sign log book an do nothing with the Post Cards

2) Sign the log book, grabpPost card(s), bug(s) or coin(s) to help move them along

3) Sign the log book, fill out a Post Card for someone else to move for you

4) Sign the log book, grab a post card(s), bug(s) or coin(s) to help move on, fill out a Post Card(s), drop a bug(s) or coin(s) and leave for someone else to help along.
