How to Host a Geocaching Event

Geocaching Event with PodCacher

Geocaching Event with PodCacher

It’s August and Geocaching HQ has announced the “7 Souvenirs of August” challenge. When you find certain types of geocaches, you can earn 6 different souvenirs. Earn all 6 and you unlock a special 7th souvenir. Sounds great! But wait. To earn the Socializer Souvenir, you must attend some sort of event – regular, mega or giga. You check the calendar and there are NO events near you, at least none that you are able to attend due to your schedule. You start to panic. How will you get that Socializer Souvenir?! Never fear. The answer is simple. Host your own event. That’s what we are planning to do.

This post is for those of you who have never hosted an event, or have only hosted a few and are still feeling a bit unsure about the process.

5 Tips for International Geocaching

A Guest Post by Josh and Liz aka Peanuts or Pretzels

We really enjoy Geocaching during our international travels because it gives us a unique adventure. But there are a few things that you need to think about when you are planning to go geocaching while on vacation / holiday. We learned these lessons the hard way on our first trip to Europe. We didn’t plan ahead of time to go geocaching and we had a more difficult time finding our way. Basically, you could say that we did it the hard way! We made it work, but it kept us on the tourist path and we missed out on some caches that we have since looked back on and wish we could have found. After that first geocaching experience in Europe, we realized that we needed to be a bit more prepared. We’ve gotten a lot better at geocaching internationally since then, so as a result, here are our top 5 things that you need to know to go geocaching internationally.
