The sport of geocaching is catching on like wildfire throughout the USA and worldwide. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to get started with geocaching if you’re interested. All you need to do is 1. Visit geocaching websites to learn a bit about how it works. 2. Select a specific geocache and get the GPS coordinates. 3. Locate the geocache—put your name in the logbook and document the time/date in the website log. Not only is locating a geocache a personal achievement, the sport evokes a sense of community. Geocachers are all logging the same finds; they also help each other with traveling to geocaching locations.
There are several reasons why geocachers like to utilize metal detectors while they are out on a mission. For one thing, it can speed up the treasure hunting process when you are so close but just can find the cache. Metal detectors can help locate the geocaching coins that many times are buried with a cache.
Geocaching and Family Fun
Geocaching is exciting, even more so when done as an outing with the whole family. Bringing a metal detector along will help to pique the interest of all members of your family no matter which activity they get involved with. When geocaching or metal detecting as a family, you will be sharing an adventure and making memories that you will treasure for years to come. For even more fun, let’s combine geocaching and camping.
