Hello Caching Community! This is the Cacheology.com inaugural blog post.
As the world becomes more virtual and digital, it becomes more important than ever to connect to the physical. Geocaching provides a link between the two.
Geocaching is typically described as a “high-tech treasure hunt.” It’s more than that. It is:
- A crowd-sourced exploration of the world around us
- An educational tool to tell a story…about a place or a time or an event
- An fun and inexpensive activity while relaxing or vacationing with family and friends
- A platform for location-based games and puzzles
- A virtual tour guide to most any place in the world
- An opportunity to connect with a community and share your knowledge and creativity with them
As an activity, geocaching is still in its infancy. The world is truly our oyster, and the GPS is our tool to pry the sucker open and find the good stuff.
Geocaching is being reimagined and redefined every day. There are no limits on the games we can play or the adventures we can undertake.
At this page, I’ll share the more interesting aspects of geocaching I have discovered, and try and enrich your experience with my own caches, games, challenges and ideas.
Over the course of the next 3 months, I will launch, from this page :
- A historic, ski-themed tour of Colorado’s Front Range, with all new caches
- A new game — a mash-up of geocaching with another outdoor sport that I love
- A transportation-themed event cache in Denver
And that’s just the beginning.
I hope to get feedback from you on these caches and events. You can reach me through social media or email with comments, or with any cache-related questions, particularly if you are new to caching.
I also hope this blog provides an endless source of ideas and inspiration to me, and to you, to take geocaching to the next level.
