Come join us as we celebrate the

20th Anniversary of the Creation of Geocaching!

Saturday - May, 8, 2021


The location of the event is in Colby, Kansas, the first city northwest of Mingo following Interstate Highway I-70. (But you already knew that from the coordinates.) In Colby you will find all the amenities - places to sleep, places to stay cool in the May heat of Kansas, places to eat, places to "use the facilities," places to visit with new friends, a place you can even call home if you enjoy Colby that much.

Other Activities in the Area


We will be cramming the day with lots of crazy activities. It will be MADNESS! If you have ever considered making the journey across lands near and far (and maybe oceans too) to visit the oldest active geocache in the world, this would be the time to do it. Come see Mingo (GC30) with your own eyes. Hold it in your own hands. Sign the Mingo logbook at Mingo. Sign the event logbook in Colby. This is the best time for you to do that, on the 20th Anniversary of the Creation of Geocaching. When you come, we will all be there with you.
