What do we do for fun when not building websites? We like to go GEOCACHING! What is geocaching you might say? (You must be a muggle!) Geocaching is people just like you, using a billion dollar satellite system to find hidden tupperware! But seriously folks, geocaching is a huge world wide phenomenon, with equal measures of search and explore built right it. Maryland recently started a state wide geocaching trail to help drive tourism. The next day an NBC reporter contacted me thru Twitter to ask me about it. ( I have been tweeting my finds and caches ) and I gave him this info.
There are 708,619 active caches worldwide.
In the last 7 days, there have been 688,000 new logs written
by 77,717 account holders.
Geocaching is fun sport that can be enjoyed where ever you may find yourself. Go to Geocaching.com, sign up for a free account, and do a search for caches in your zip code.
Remember, All who wander are not lost, some are geocachers.
Geocaching, Where YOU are the search engine.
