Geocaching and the Magellan GPS Adventure


I have been geocaching for several years. It’s a great activity for those of us who like travel, adventure, and tech toys. The object of the game is to use a GPS to find something hidden or a landmark somewhere. Geocaches are all over the world. Currently there are over 171,000 geocaches in 215 countries. To date, I have found only 100 of those. Besides the cost of a GPS and gas, geocaching is free.

Magellan is one of the top manufacturers of GPS devices. They have added a spin to geocaching and created their own game that involves winning prizes. Last year they had a similar game going which was fun to participate in. I ended up being about 1/2 hour late to a cache that they had placed in Scottsdale, Arizona and my parents were the second to find a cache outside of Chicago, Illinois. They ended up with a couple of cool Magellan items out of it.

If you are looking for an easy way to add some adventure to your next trip, get a GPS and load some waypoints from Geocaching.com into it. I would love to find this cache on Mt. Kilimanjaro or this cache on the Great Wall of China.
