8 Things Only Geocachers Will Understand

Geocachers are a pretty fun and crazy bunch. I’ve not been geocaching for very long, but the more people I meet and the more caches I find, the more I love the hobby. It’s not only rewarding, but the community behind it is pretty much awesome. I also get to pretend to be a pirate, so there’s that. There’s a lot that goes into searching for a cache, but all of the joy, sorrow, bruises and scrapes is worth it when you finally find the cache.

It really is amazing to see what cachers will do to write their name on a piece of paper, isn’t it? So, for all of you geocachers out there who have struggled with a DNF for the thousandth time or climbed up a tree for a piece of tupperware, I have a short list a list of things just for you:

1. There are caches virtually everywhere, but only so much time.

2. Spotting a cache and trying to not look suspicious while waiting for muggles to clear the area.

But… it’s RIGHT THERE.

3. Spending an hour (or more) wandering around in circle trying to find a cache.

It’s gotta be here somewhere

4. The joy of finally locating a DNF after multiple (and I really mean multiple) tries.

Sneaky little bugger…

5. For a cache, you’ll willingly stick your hand into places most people wouldn’t even poke a stick.

Come get it. I dare you.

Come get it. I dare you.

6. Explaining it to muggles sounds absolutely crazy, no matter how you try and spin it.

7. It’s the best way to get to know a new location, or rediscover an old one.

8. There is always time for one more cache.
