So basically — all you need to enjoy this activity and explore new adventures is a GPS or Smartphone. If you want to truly Geocache — do it the original way with your handheld GPS and download the caches in the area to your device. If you want to make it a little easier — Use your smartphone and an app that basically lists them with maps for you – such as C:Geo .
Its always good to take a pencil with you to log your finds and sign the log. I you plan on going to find a few its best to take a bag with your water and supplies as well as gloves, possibly little digging device, small items to exchange, and of course a camera.
Hope you have fun and find some new and exciting treasures and locations. Please share your photos with us on the appropriate Resort Facebook Pages!
Once Again — Happy National Scavenger Hunt Day!!!
