The Grand Finale!

After over a decade of geocaching while dressed as pirates, explorers, Romans in togas, time travelers, knights in shining armor, spies, ghostly apparitions, 1920s gangsters, Egyptian mummies and raging Vikings, the Going Caching Crew has decided that 2024 will be the final year of the Going Caching Mega-Event. We have enjoyed hosting and playing along with our geocaching friends from all over and hope you can join us in a final celebration at Going Caching 2024: Detective Story this October. This year's adventure will immerse you in 1940's noir detective mysteries as you attempt to foil the biggest caper yet of criminal mastermind, Carmen Can deAmmo!
