Charlottesville Geocaching

Bryan McKenzie has a great piece in today’s Daily Progress about geocaching:

Go online to a game site such as www.geocaching.com and look up your Zip code. Choose a cache to find, download the coordinates into your GPS or print out the topographic map and go hunting. Some are hard to find, some are easy. But they are everywhere.

[…]

Within a 10-mile radius of downtown Charlottesville there are 36 caches. Within 25 miles there are 88. Draw a 100-mile circle around town and you can hunt for 1,957 bits of hidden treasure. Caches come in all sizes. There are small caches the size of a Starbuck’s vanilla mint tin. There are some as small as your fingertip and some the size of a 5-gallon bucket.

Having gotten a GPS for Christmas, I’m totally geeked at the prospect of so many caches in the area.

  • Glad that this is getting some visibility in town. My kids love going on cache hunts in the area.

    Have fun with your new GPS!
