All Paths lead to Caching

If discovering the outdoors is just your speed, then you will love Geocaching! Have you heard of it? Well, if you haven’t, here it is in a nutshell…

What is Geocaching?

Geocaching is a global GPS app-based “scavenger hunt” that has been around for over 20 years! A geocache (or a “cache” for short) is hidden and its coordinates logged into the app. Using the clues and the coordinates, you begin your search to find your cache. Caches will have a logbook inside (and some with special treasures if the cache is large enough) so that you can sign your name and log your journey. Here’s a quick video to help you better understand what geocaching is all about:

Geocaches

What is a cache exactly? Afterall, there’s over 2 million of them globally. Well, it can honestly be just about anything. It can be a tiny magnetic piece that you twist open to find a tiny logbook inside, it can be a large ammo container filled with treasures from other cachers, or it can even be a large “gadget cache” that requires you to solve puzzles to get the container open. The possibilities are pretty limitless with caches--that’s part of the fun!

Peachtree City has hundreds of Geocaches in and around town put out by local geocachers and even a series from Visit Peachtree City! Keep reading for some exciting PTC Geocaching news! :)
