What is in a Geocache?

What Should I Bring?
When you find a geocache you should always leave an item when you take an item, so plan to bring some swag to leave behind. Below are a few other items that would be good to bring.

    • Comfy Shoes
    • A Good GPS

    • Snacks and Water
    • Sunscreen
    • Bug Spray

What Should I Expect?

They may be hidden in or around structures, logs, rocks, etc. That is what makes it challenging and fun, which is the most imporant thing to expect… to have fun!
