I love to hike and trail run but every now and then I’ll throw in some geocaching. It’s a modern day treasure hunt using a GPS device to discover hidden caches. These caches contain anything from trinkets to simple log books for you to document your find.
Geocaching will take you off the trails and on a scavenger hunt so it’s important to carry essentials to make it safe and fun.
Hydrate! You could be out searching for hours so stay hydrated.
Pack a lightweight kit with bandages, ointments, balms. All the above in case you get some cuts and scrapes. Don’t forget insect spray or sunscreen.
Pocketknife, or a multi tool will come in handy. For all those “just-in-case” moments.
