Geocache Description:

We are pleased to welcome you back to North Carolina for GeoWoodstock 15!

The main event will be held on Saturday, May 27th, 2017 from 9am until 5pm (end time subject to change) at the Haywood County Fairgrounds in Waynesville, in beautiful Western North Carolina. Close to amazing Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mountains, Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests and many, many things geocachers will enjoy.

We hope to make this a destination weekend for all geocachers and their families so they can explore this great area.

We hosted GeoWoodstock V in Raleigh, NC and we can't believe it's been ten years already. So...

Nothing could be finer than to cache in Carolina....AGAIN!
