Editor’s Note: Staff from Geocaching HQ in Seattle are visiting more than 30 Mega-Events around the globe this year, to shake hands, share stories and hear what you think is next for geocaching. In February, the Southwest Arizona Geocachers hosted their signature event, S*W*A*G’s Yuma Mega #11, in sunny Yuma. Above is what it looked like at home in Seattle, where Geocaching HQ is located, that same weekend. After arriving in Yuma and thanking the Southwest Sunshine Gods (they must exist), I found my first-ever Arizona geocaches and got started on the Mega Event’s Lab Caches.

At the beginning of this month, the I <3 Geocaching Lab Cache experiment launched. During the month of February, Geocaching Premium members have the chance to create a temporary, personalized Lab Cache for one special person. This new test is different than normal geocaching and is open to all sorts of creative interpretations. In fact, in the short two weeks that the test has been live, we’ve already seen a number of amazing Lab Caches from the geocaching community. If you’re a Geocaching Premium member and you haven’t created your Lab Cache yet, do it here, then post your ideas in [...]
I had the pleasure of attending the GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. This exhibit has been the torque of this town (get it?). See it while you can. It will be there until May 4, 2014. Many of us took advantage of this very rare opportunity to have a so-called “Busy Day of Geocaching” – a day in which you can find a full dozen different cache types. The eager community fastened their seatbelts to geocache across Bowling Green. Up for grabs were a CITO event, a regular event, some experimental Lab [...]
This holiday season, we’re giving thanks for everything the geocaching community (that’s you) does. In 2013 alone, Geocaching surpassed the 2 million active geocaches mark and the community grew to over 6 million geocachers. Plus, there were thousands of amazing events worldwide—we even celebrated as a Travel Bug® launched into space! But out of all of the amazing things that happened this year, it’s the simplest thing that still makes us all warm and fuzzy inside: the smile that happens when another geocache is found. Happy Holidays from all of us at Geocaching HQ! Share your favorite moments of 2013 [...]
Editor’s note: Geocaching HQ staff are joining geocachers at Mega-Events around the world to celebrate and share the adventure of geocaching. Andrea Hofer returns to her home state of Florida to attend the 2013 Florida Finder’s Fest. This is Andrea’s account of her trip. by Andrea: The 2013 Florida Finder’s Fest was a total blast. With hundreds of attendees in the Ocala National Forest, activities ranged from a chili cook-off to running through the woods at night. And of course caching, caching, caching! Check out the photo gallery below for a look at a geocaching paradise in Florida. [...]
