You Probably Drive By Geocaches Every Day



Have you ever driven by something like this?  Would you even think there would be a geocache there?  Well if you said, "sure, why not!" then you are right!




On the back of this town plow is hidden a hide-a-key geocache, can you guess where it might be?

Do you have any idea how many geocaches you probably drive by in a day?  They're not all hidden on mountain tops.  Did you know you could be parking right in front of one next time you stop at a rest stop?  Did you know there's quite possibly one on the porch of your local Cracker Barrel restaurant?  Who knows, maybe there's one on YOUR town plow! 

If you haven't already tried this, go to www.geocaching.com and put in your zip code and see all the geocaches you're driving by all the time.  Or better yet, if you happen to have a gps and can take the coordinates of your own home, you can see how many geocaches are closest to your own house.  For example, there are fourteen geocaches within 5 miles of my own house!  You might be surprised and inspired to try to find some of them! :-)  Can anyone beat 14 geocaches within 5 miles?

See you in the log books!

How great is it to know that people drive by these every day and have NO clue? :)

You could also be driving by a cache that is part of a nationwide treasure hunt - and a key to an incredible prize! Right now a geocaching-type event is going on in the U.S. around the new book The Skin Map by best-selling author Stephen Lawhead. There are 50 caches all over the U.S. and clues are released here: http://brightempires.com/hunt - It's being called the ultimate treasure hunt. With an iPad on the line, it may be!
