What is GoGeocaching.com about?
Geocaching is a global treasure
hunt game geocaching is a location
based game where typically a
container such as a pill bottle, or
tuber maid storage container is
placed somewhere on the planet
and coordinates are published.
Other geocachers then use those
coordinates to navigate to the
location and sign a log sheet to
prove they were there.  There are
many variations on the game;
some geocaches require solving a
puzzle in order to learn what the
coordinates are, others use web
cams, or other high tech functions
of a GPS receiver or Smart Phone
in order to find the hidden treasure.

Over the years since the military
satellites were unlocked and made
available for public use many
location based games have been
created. More have come and gone
while  geocaching appears to be
here to stay.

The latest location based game is
Pokemon Go then a Harry Potter
based game which were wildly
popular. These came into being off
an APP called Ingress which is also
still being played by a few avid
location based game addicts.

NEW
Adventure Labs!
A new way to geocache
with virtual locations. You
need to install a separate
APP on your phone. Log
into the APP with your
geocaching credentials.
The app will bring up a
map of nearby Adventure
Lab caches. Each Lab is
several waypoints which
you visit and answer a
question in order to prove
you were there. You get
credit for a find in
geocaching for each stage
you complete. Often times
there is also a physical
cache as a bonus and you
are given info during the
completion of the
Adventure Lab so that you
can find the physical cache
too. The physical is logged
on the regular
geocaching.com site. I
completed one Adventure
Lab today, walking around
Elmhurst University
campus and earned five
smileys. Check out
Adventure Labs in your
area.
