11 Tips to Introduce Geocaching

11tipsintroYou know how it goes. You try to talk to your friends and family about your fun hobby called Geocaching. You get the typical “Geo-what?” response, or the quizzical look as you try to explain – the look that quickly turns into the bemused, long-suffering expression as you get more and more animated. Finally they try to end the conversation with a semi-sincere, “You’ll have to take me out with you sometime and show me.” Ah-ha! You’ve got them! Pick a date, put it on the calendar and start planning your trip. With these helpful tips, you’ll have a fun time AND you just might have some new converts to go geocaching with you!

1 - Take them to geocaches that you have found. I know, I know. It’s really tempting to try out a new hide that you’re dying to find – you gotta get those numbers up, after all!! – but DON’T. If you take some newbies to a cache you’re not familiar with and you run into ANY type of problem: a less-than-ideal location (think lots of trash), a broken container, difficult terrain, or worst

Smile! You Are On Candid Caching!

A Guest Post by Dave DeBaeremaeker aka debaere

Geocachers carry all sorts of tools with them into the field when they cache: pens, notebooks, mirrors, rope, tweezers and many other things. There is another tool that you may already be carrying, that can be very useful for caching and you may not even realize it. That tool is a camera.

Obviously cameras can be used to take pictures of your adventures, but they also have other uses which you may not be aware of. This post outlines several of those uses.
