OPENCACHING: Are You A Skilled Hider?

PathtagWe want to reward you and your geocaching skills!! Starting June 1st and ending on October 31st, simply publish at least five caches to and you can earn you a pretty sweet custom "Skilled Hider" pathtag. All you have to do is get out there and prove you are indeed a skilled hider and we'll reward you! It's that easy. Just email the OX code of the published caches to: for verification of the entry.

We have seen a recent increase in celebrities catching the Opencaching bug. From world class athletes to the internet's most notorious gossip columnist more and more people are giving this adventure a try and getting hooked.

For those wondering what the craze is all about:

It's been likened to an “electronic scavenger hunt” or a "high tech Easter egg hunt" - like being a modern day, landlocked pirate. Geocaching is a family friendly game that lets you enjoy the OpenCaching-logo-stackedenvironment, see new places, and have quality time with your family and friends, all while looking for "treasure". The minimum that you need is a Garmin GPS unit and the coordinates to a geocache (cache)- which you can find on and send directly to your compatible device.

Once you have the coordinates loaded up and GPS in hand, you can begin searching. You simply hike, climb, or meander along until you have reached the area and then begin searching for the exact spot using tips/hints provided. It’s a great way to explore the world and find new adventures- all while ensuring there is treasure at the end of the path!
