Remember when everyone was trying to find Pokemon? Allow me to introduce you to the latest craze…geocaching. Think of it as a treasure hunt on steroids! By utilizing GPS-enabled devices, you’ll immediately immerse yourself into a world of discovery, exploration and adventure.

So here’s how it works…after you register for a free basic membership (download the APP), visit the Hide & Seek a Cache page, enter your postal code and choose any geocache from the list. Use your GPS device to assist you in finding the hidden geocache. Some of the containers are a challenge to identify so don’t rush it. After signing the logbook, you would return the geocache to it’s original location for the next participant to find. Be sure to share your geocache experience and photos online. One rule to the activity is if you take an item from the geocache you should leave something of equal or greater value.

This is a global phenomenon. You can find geocaches in a variety of locations such as parks, trails, cities, even underwater which will inspire you to do some traveling. Other benefits of this family-friendly activity is you meet new people and get some exercise. Before hiding your own geocache, it is recommended you find some of the hidden treasures in your area first to see what others have left.

So, are you ready to join the geocache movement? There are over 1,200 geocaches around Neptune City waiting for you. Get started in three easy steps: First, create an account. Second, find a geocache. Third, share your experience. You can get started by clicking here. Who knows…you might be geocaching with celebrities like Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiber.
