This is a Geo-Post Office!
It is used to swap letters and postcards between Geocachers!
Here is how it works:
Caches are placed to hold postcards. Each postcard will have a short message and a forwarding address on it. The address will contain the person's name that you are trying to send the postcard to, their home city, and a destination cache. The idea is to move postcards between Geo-Post Offices until they reach their destination. When you move a postcard or message from one place to another, let the person who it's being sent to know where you moved it to, because they might be near enough to go and pick it up. If you move a postcard from one Geo-Post Office to another, please move it closer to the city or cache!
I've created the "Geo-Post Offices" Web Page , with the list of "Geo-Post Offices" that I TRY to maintain.
You can use the following picture as a guide to the format to use when writing up a postcard address.
You can send any message you want to anyone you want!
How do you get started? Easy! Just write up your postcard and drop it in the Geo-Post Office!
If there are any postcards in the cache when you arrive, feel free to forward them on, if you can. If not, don't worry, just leave them for the next Geocacher.
Or you can just log your "find", as you would a regular cache, too.
The cache is an amo can. Please make sure the cache is replaced in the same place and well hidden. There is no swag in this cache - postcards and trackables only.
Please don't feel that you have to run out and spend your hard-earned cash on a postcard at the store. You can print and laminate a huge variety of postcards off the internet. Or just write up a letter, the "old-fashioned" way!

How Do I start my own Geo-Post Office?
All you need is a cache container, a log book, a stash note, some zip-lock bags and of course postcards or letters to go in it! Put the post cards or messages in the zip-lock and place the log book in another. Make sure to put in the name of the cache “Geo-Post Office” so that others will know. You may even want to include this note on the cache page to introduce new people.
TB's and GeoCoins:
"Discover" TBs and GeoCoins all you want - unless the TB or coin owner doesn't want any "discoveries".
PLEASE try and trade a coin or TB with another one.
The only exception? If TB or coin has been sitting there for over 2 weeks.
I will try and launch my new coins and TBs from either of my 2 "GeoPost Offices".
