I found this video on the official geocaching blog and it really tied into what I was talking about in my last post. Introducing the hobby of geocaching to a friend or family member can be a fulfilling experience. Explaining what geocaching is all about is definitely not as rewarding or fun than getting out and showing them instead.
Even experienced geocachers who have found thousands of caches were still a newbie at one point. However, over time, geocachers can slowly gain vital experience through their previous adventures to find out what types of geocaches work and which ones do not. These experiences can lead to a more pleasant geocaching adventure.
So, whether you’re still anticipating your first GPS-enabled treasure hunt or you’ve been caching for years, there’s still a thrill to seek for everyone.
What do you think? Do you plan on introducing someone to geocaching? Have you done so already? Leave a comment and let me know!
