What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for GPS (Global Positioning System) users. Participating in a cache hunt is a good way to take advantage of the wonderful features and capability of a GPS unit. The basic idea is to have individuals set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the internet. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. All the visitor is asked to do is if they take something then they should try to leave something for the cache and to sign the logbook. You pronounce it Geo-cashing, like cashing a check.

I registered on the site on February 8, 2001.
I hid my first cache on February 24, 2001.
I found my first cache on February 27, 2001.

I've been a reviewer for the site since March 13, 2002. When I started, we reviewed caches around the globe. We now have local reviewers. I currently review caches in AL, MS, LA, Washington DC and British Columbia in Canada. I am also a Global Moderator on the Groundspeak Forums.

Proud Member of the GGA -- Georgia Geocachers Association I am also a member of the GGA, or the Georgia Geocachers Association. It is fun to get together with other cachers and swap stories. Our meetings are really fun and it is hard to meet with everyone.

We are lucky to have a great group of cachers in GA.


GPS stash/Geocache hunting, like any outdoor sport, carries the risk of unforeseen hazards. We support a policy of not knowingly placing stashes in areas that will create undue risk to the cache hunter. However, as conditions and cache locations may vary, it is the responsibility of the searcher to become thoroughly familiar with the conditions in the area to be searched, to adequately prepare for those conditions, and to conduct oneself safely and responsibly with respect to those conditions and with respect to his or her personal abilities and limitations. Individual Geostash and GPS cache sponsors assume no liability for events which may occur related directly or indirectly to one's searching for a stash.

Do not let children hunt for GPS stashes unsupervised.

By reading and utilizing the GPS clues posted on this web site, you acknowledge the above conditions, and accept responsibility for your own actions, and agree to hold non-liable the GPS cache sponsors, website authors, and further, agree to provide this disclaimer to any person with whom you share these GPS cache locations.
