Spring is in the air and geocachers are on the move! Not that a huge majority of us don't cache during the winter, but spring just brings us out like little blooms on a vine. It feels good to be out in the sunshine and fresh air, stretching our legs on the trails, hitting up the woods and forest preserves before leaves are on the trees and mosquitoes and ticks swarm the air.
If you're new to Geocaching and want to find out how to register and discover all you need to know about geocaching, then visit the official Geocaching site.
If you want to read about what it's really like to be out and about searching for caches, then I think the best thing to do is to visit other geocaching blogs. Geocachers love to share their stories and best of all - they post pictures! Visiting geocaching blogs is a great learning tool and I don't know of any geocacher that isn't willing to answer a few questions. Here's a list of some of my favorite geocaching blogs....
CacheCrazy is headed up by my good buddy Kevin and I'm a frequent contributor over there. But besides that, there's a revolving group of excellent writers and cachers who share their tales and I guarantee you will love this blog.....
Dave, over at Googlebot is one of my favorite blog writers. Not only does he also contribute over at CacheCrazy, but he does an excellent job of telling a story and supplies great photos. He finds some really interesting caches and I have him to blame for my growing list of "Out of State to-do" caches...
Madcacher blog which also offers the great book "101 Devil Caches" and I reviewed here.
Geocache: I'm Not Obsessed, Right? who also hosts the Geosnippets podcast.
Erika Jean who shares her Arizona caching adventures.
Life Outside my Door where Sonny shares caching in Georgia.
Take some time and go check them all out and then go find a geocache!
