Geocaching is a family-friendly, GPS-based outdoor adventure game that combines hiking, puzzle solving, and treasure hunting. This event will introduce participants to the basics of geocaches: what they are, how to find them, and the rules of the game. Experienced geocachers will be available after the introductory session to help participants find caches hidden around Great Woods.
A GPS device or smartphone will be useful during this event, but it is not strictly required. Due to the potential presence of poison ivy, appropriate clothing is recommended. This is a rain or shine event.
There are more than 2,000 caches hidden within 20 miles of Mansfield, and more than 2.5 million worldwide! Come on out and find out about a game that's being played not only worldwide, but in the public areas of your own home town!
Michael lives in Mansfield and is a founder of RIGA (Rhode Island Geocaching Association). As a cacher, he has found over 1000 caches and has placed approximately 100. For more information, please contact him at email@example.com.
