Geocache Name: Aliens Among Us (GC1N0B9) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1.5/2 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Geocaching does more than just give us something to do. It gives us a way to explore and to meet new people. In fact, one of my favorite quotes is “the best things you’ll find while geocaching aren’t the geocaches, it’s the geocachers.” With about 7 million geocachers worldwide, there are plenty of adventurous folks just waiting to be your friend. However, it’s not always people you meet. When you seek out a geocache like Aliens Among Us, you’ll have the chance to [...]
Geocache Name: Vertical Limit I: Die Brücke (GCZVW2) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1.5/5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Between inviting forest trails, urban jaunts and neighborhood parks, it’s easy to forget that there’s a whole other side to geocaching—the adrenaline-fueled adventure sport that only the skilled and brave take part in.

One of the running themes in the Found It logs for Tree of Soles is that it never would have been visited had there not been a geocache there. Think about your neighborhood, is there a secret amazing place that people should know about? It doesn’t have to [...]
Geocaching trackables travel far and wide—hopping from geocache to geocache in the hands of geocachers. If we could hear the stories they had to tell, we’d have an endless supply of tales that include action, adventure, love and maybe even some sci-fi. We haven’t developed talking trackables just yet (soon?), but they can still tell a story via the pictures you post on the trackable’s page. The next time you pick up a Travel Bug or Geocoin, make sure to add to the story and post a photo of its journey to the next geocache. You could help tell a [...]
