On May 2nd, 2000, Dave Ulmer posted the following message to a Usenet group, kicking off the idea of what later became known as Geocaching...

 

The Great American GPS Stash Hunt !! 

-- Now that SA is off we can start a worldwide Stash Game!! With 
Non-SA accuracy it should be easy to find a stash from waypoint 
information. Waypoints of secret stashes could be shared on the 
Internet, people could navigate to the stashes and get some 
stuff. The only rule  for stashes is: Get some Stuff, Leave some 
Stuff!! The more valuable the stuff the more stashes will be 
started. 

I'm thinking of half burying a five gallon plastic bucket with 
lid at the stash point. Putting in some stuff. Adding a logbook 
and pencil so visitors can record their find. The log should 
contain: Date, Time, What you got, and What you put in. Scanning 
the log book should give you a quick inventory of the stash. 

I'll look for a place near a road where few people would 
normally go... Put in some cash, an old digital camera, and some 
antique silverware!! I will come up with a cool name for my 
stash and post coordinates soon!!! 

Make your own stash in a unique location, put in some stuff and 
a log book. Post the location on the Internet. Soon we will have 
thousands of stashes all over the world to go searching for. 

Have Fun!! 

Dave...

Now that's a great reason to organise an event cache, if we don't say ourselves!

This event will kick off at 10.30am, and people can stay as long as they like (or get inspired, and do the number of caches within a few km's of here). Bring your thermos and nibbles!

Bring along your trackables, so others can discover them. There may be a few special ones in the mix too. There will be a few prizes (thanks to Jockaroo for the donated goodies!) and geo-competitions on the day too - tell your geo-friends, the more the merrier!

We hope to see you there! Please let us know via a note below if you plan to come along (and put this on your watch list, so you get any updates)...
