    Geo Caching...

    As of 2015, 6 million people are involved in Geo Cache searches. There are 2.5 million caches worldwide, somewhere...

    In and near Spokane, there are 4,879 of them. Some of which are within a half a mile of me...

    Interesting?

    Here's where you can see what is near you: http://Geocaching.com

    You may be surprised!!

    Please post here if you find this interesting and find anything!!

    Nice post Littletommy. Geocaching can be so much fun and if you have a GPS, most of the geocaches listed are free.

    Big Foot Eyes Night Cache (https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/...es-night-cache) was my most favorite geocache to find of all time. It was a night cache and we used flashlights to find reflective smiles on trees. You could only see one "smile" from each spot which would lead you from one spot to another. After stumbling our way over and through trees, we came the last spot which had a treasure of night-time related articles to trade.


    Unfortunately, the area had been involved in a couple of forest fires. While the trees which had the reflective smiles didn't get destroyed, thinning the forest removed most of them rendering this great cache mostly not fun anymore. We went back a 2nd time with some of the girls friends. We found most of the trees with the smiles and did find the last one...again, but it wasn't the same. Still, it was the most fun finding a geocache we've ever had.

    This is what the "smiles" looked like.


    This photo was not us, but it shows the smile when related to people. It was so much fun! This group is holding the ammo can which held the cache contents.

    A couple of friends of mine love to geocache. I enjoyed helping them hide the cache boxes, but never got into trying to find them. Interesting hobby.

    I'm slightly disappointed in this thread. I do appreciate everyone who has posted, but I was hoping a few of you out there would at least look on the website to see how many caches might be in your area and at least report back. I was more than a little shocked to see how close some of them were to me...

    We tried it awhile back, about a year or so ago. Found a couple near us. Unfortunately we have been too busy to mess with it, and we were pretty bad at it to start with. It is interesting though.......

    It would have been easier for folks here if they did not require you to create an account to look at items located nearby. I signed in anyway and there seems to be about three pages worth within 20 miles of me. Some even as close as a mile. Kinda cool so I may try it sometime.
