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:
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! :)
