Geocaching is heading towards the International Space Station (ISS). All of geocaching? No, not all of it, but a very special little Travel Bug® named TB5JJN1 is tagging along with Nasa astronaut Rick Mastracchio on his mission to the ISS. Mastracchio will be using the Travel Bug as an educational tool to help teach students around the world about geography and geocaching. Mastraccio will Rocket into Space on November 7, 2013 (GMT). Every geocacher who attends a Geocaching Event on November 6 or 7, 2013 will be awarded a “Geocaching in Space” souvenir.
Come and enjoy an evening of socialising with geocachers at The Carron Works, 12 Bank St, Falkirk FK1 3HB! The Carron Works has a good menu that's reasonably priced should you wish to eat. An area has been set aside for us so we can all sit together from 1900. See you there!
