Going Caching 2018 Theme Announced!

The Going Caching Facebook page quietly changed its profile picture on November 15th from Going Caching 2017 to a spooky  Going Caching 2018 “Haunted Mysteries” theme.  I immediately started thinking about all the possibilities!  My first thought was Scooby Doo and Mystery, Inc. but we prefer to come up with something more original.

Going Caching 2017 Was AWESOME

Going Caching is an annual Geocaching Mega-Event held in the State of Georgia USA. Each year the Going Caching Crew hosts geocachers from all over the world for five days of fun somewhere in Georgia.

Backward Geocaching or Geocaching In Reverse?

What should I call it?  Recently, I have had to start something new, either backward geocaching or geocaching in reverse, but I can’t decide what to call it.  Maybe you can help.

Let me explain what is going on.

Summer Is Here, Finally! Are You Ready?

If you haven’t been paying attention,SUMMER IS HERE! Summer begins June 21, 12:24 AM EDT so the first full day of summer this year is June 21

What’s on your Geocacher’s Christmas Wish List

If you have a geocacher in your life, you probably know they are sometimes hard to figure out when it comes time to buy gifts. This is especially hard if you happen to be a muggle (oops, sorry! – A non-geocacher) Geocacher’s come in all different shapes and sizes. We come from different backgrounds, different countries, different ethnicities, and different religions, but we all love geocaching.

GeoTours of Tennessee : Geocaching with a mission

GeoTours of Tennessee

As of this morning, November 18, 2016, The state of Tennessee can now boast of two excellent GeoTours. The Geotours of Tennessee are the Jack Trail GeoTour and the Discover South Central Tennessee GeoTour.

Jack Trail GeoTour –

A short description on the geocaching.com GeoTour Page says:

The Jack Trail GeoTour lets you explore Tennessee’s history, music, horses, famous distilleries, small-town charm and great geocaching. Join us for an excellent sampling of the things that make Middle Tennessee special, and a perfect opportunity to raise your glass to a one-of-a-kind road trip.

Discover South Central Tennessee Geotour –

A short description on the geocaching.com GeoTour Page says:

The back roads can be the best roads when it comes to geocaching adventures. Find history, outdoor adventure, peace and quiet, culinary delights, hiking, spirits, charming towns and one-of-a-kind attractions spread through our rolling hills in South Central Tennessee. Discover all of our hidden treasures while geocaching!

These two GeoTours of Tennessee have a lot of similarities, but are still different in many ways. There is just so much to do and see in the South Central Tennessee area, it couldn’t be contained in just one GeoTour; There had to be two!!

Souvenirs Are A Big Deal To Geocachers

Souvenirs are digital or virtual pieces of art that you can discover and display on your profile page. Usually a souvenir is one of the “Lackey’s” artistic creation representing a geographic location, a period of time, an event, a task, or all of the above.

Size Does Matter To Geocachers

You wouldn’t think the size of a geocache container would cause any confusion, but it does. Geocache containers come in many sizes and shapes.

Geocacher language may seem a little odd to a muggle so I am providing some explanation of a few terms often used in the geocacher language.
