When I tell people about geocaching, many ask “what’s hidden in a geocache” so I thought I’d share a picture of an example or two in this geocache blog post. These are caches that I’ve just hidden (my first hides – exciting!).

Usually you find:

  • The geocache container (might seem obvious, but some are very clever!)
  • A log book or log sheet where people can write their names that they found the geocache
  • Small trade items – you take one and leave something different

Small trade items could be:

  • coins
  • stamps
  • toys
  • a travel bug (a portable item to carry to a different geocache)
  • batteries (to keep you out geocaching on your GPS unit!)
  • NOT food or perishable items
  • NOT anything un-family-friendly
  • NOT anything marketing or selling something

The scariest thing I found was a lizard on top of a geocache – was not sure it was worth getting the cache – but I did it!
