Many of us take our GPS device with us when we travel and have geocached at our destination. Sometimes it may be a quick grab in a city during business travel, and sometimes it may be a place you go to just to geocache.

I’m currently on the road in a Roadtrek RV traveling across North America – and of course am geocaching along the way. I stopped in Cache Creek, British Columbia, Canada and found an advertisement in a tourist travel leaflet promoting the Gold Country GeoTour

I mean if you are in a place called Cache Creek, then it must have geocaches, right?

I have often done a geocache series, such as my Henry VIII Wives geocache series in my hometown, San Diego, California. But the Gold Country geotour takes this to a new level.

There are over 100 geocaches placed in a 300+ miles radius and it’s completely supported by the local tourist authorities. That is a great breakthrough in my opinion to create geotourism and adds more credibility of geocaching as a whole as well as guaranteed upkeep of the geocaches in this geotour.

The Gold Country geotour even offers a special geocache PRIZE if you find more than 24 of the geocaches.

For proof that you have found at least 24, you must collect a sticker or code from each of the geocache finds you make. Then when complete you send these details to the Gold Country GeoTour address.

I took 2 days to complete 24 and discovered new places that I would never have stopped at or learnt about if it were not for this geotour.

And in a recent update to the official Geocaching website, there are several geotours listed as a feature for geocachers to take on.

Have you done any of the geotours shown on the Geocaching website? Do you think GeoTourism is a good idea? Or will it just take away the fun of muggles not knowing what we are doing looking in that bush?
