What Is Geocaching

For around two and half years I have been involved in a hobby that is shared by some 6 million others worldwide. That hobby is Geocaching.

At the time of writing this post, you can find around 2.7 million geocaches located all over the world. I would love to explain but I think the video they have created does a much better job. You can find the Geocaching Guide, on the Geocaching website. The video does a great job of giving you the basic idea of what Geocaching is in just over a minute.

My Geocaching Adventure

I joined the game on the 20th of February 2013. Since this date, I have found around 3700 geocaches. In some terms could put me in the class of just a little addicted to the hobby.

The majority of the geocaches that I have found are around the area of South East Queensland. However, I have travelled to Northern New South Wales and Melbourne.

The most enjoyable part of the experience of Geocaching is some of the places that the hunt can take you. From the quick urban finds around the suburbs, the tricky inner city hides and of course the bush hikes. There have been so many amazing places that I have discovered only as a result of hunting for a geocache.

Whats To Come

I do hope that I can start to share some more about my days out geocaching on this blog shortly. Putting together some of the photos that I take in the amazing locations that I get to visit. Telling the story of the journey to find some of the longer hikes. Either way, I know that the next time that I travel overseas there is a very good chance Geocaching will be a part of the trip.

Are you a Geocacher or have you had an experience with this fun outdoor hobby. I would love to hear about it, you can leave a comment below or connect with me on one of the social media networks listed below.
