The McArthur Island Treasure Hunt (MITH)
series is a geo-training playground for new geocachers with a
variety of cache types and difficulty levels. Caches are safe,
family-friendly, and some are wheelchair accessible. All caches
promote the highest standards of geocaching etiquette by
encouraging cachers to practice low impact caching, respect other
park users, and trade responsibly.
Most of all, they are meant to be fun!
What started out as an idea to transform Mac Island into a geo
training ground to help new cachers learn the game of Geocaching,
has become a reality. It is an easily accessed, level site in
which you can learn to Geocache in a safe, easy to navigate
environment. We have created at
least 12 new caches, along with 2 established caches that have been
revised. We are hopefully going to have an Earthcache and
possibly a night cache as well.
The event will start at 10 am until 2
pm. Please arrive at 9:00 am so we can get
registered, gps units loaded, paperwork handed out
Newcomers will be able to access a gps unit (as these are
rented gps units, a security deposit will be required) and
then tour the island with experienced cachers whom will assist you
with the gps and finding the various caches hidden on the
Caches will vary from the traditional single stage, multi stage
caches, a puzzle cache, a CITO (Cache In Trash Out) cache, wheel
chair accessible caches and of course the event itself.
The MITH Cachers group of 6 encourage you to bring the family, a
lunch and proper attire for the weather.
