A Wagging Good Time: Tips for Geocaching with Pups

By Dani Navarre Nothing is better than geocaching with your best friend and who could be better than man’s best friend? Geocaching isn’t just a hobby for humans—your four-legged friends can join in on the fun too. Coming home to slobbery kisses and a wagging tail is enough to brighten anyone’s day.

Geocaching.com Turns 14 – Rare Fun Facts Revealed

Remember the year 2000? In the United States a pound of bacon only cost $3 and a gallon of gas set people back $1.26. The iPhone was still 7 years away from being introduced.

It will be 20 years before we’ll see another full moon this close to Earth, so whether you’re a new to geocaching or have over 10,000 finds, this was an excellent opportunity to find a geocache at night.   Some may be familiar with NightCaching, OwlCaching, or SuperMoonCaching, but this was SuperDuperMoonCaching. Since the moon was at the nearest proximity to Earth, it appeared larger and brighter [...]

Discover EarthCaching and 11 Stunning Locations

There’s something truly spectacular about our planet earth. This month, the 7 Souvenirs of August (and the Nature Lover Souvenir) encourages you to get in touch with the extraordinary world around you through EarthCaching. EarthCaching is the magical combination of geocaching and geological discovery. The purpose of an EarthCache is to share information about a particular (and typically jaw-dropping) geological feature. EarthCaches do not contain physical containers like most geocaches. They do, however,  carry a piece of geological history that can date back millions and millions of years. A little bit about this  geocache type… There are over 17,000 EarthCaches  worldwide. EarthCaches are [...]
