Geocache with BernCo Bernie!

What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is an outdoor recreational treasure-hunting game, using a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device to hide-and-seek containers, called geocaches or caches.
Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
A typical cache contains a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it (FTF - First to Find - status is very important!) and signs it with their established code name. After signing, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it so that others will be able to play!
Geocaching is an activity that can be enjoyed by families, individuals, and groups of all sizes. The benefits of this activity include socialization and access to the outdoors - instead of watching moves and TV shows about treasure hunters, and you can become a treasure hunter yourself!

etacos: 08/10/2013:  What a great community center. We learned so much about what Bernalillo County has to offer and picked up some additional info on geocaching. Thanks to all the presenters, organizers, and all involved in making this happen.

 

Bob8Bear: What a challenge and what an event yesterday. We had a great time traveling all over town yesterday to find all the Bernies. We truly enjoyed visiting the BC Open Spaces. They are very nice, clean and well done. Just hope people will take care of them. It was late when we finished the 8 Bernie caches plus a few others, so we decided we'd come back another day for the final. Well today was the day. The garden is beautiful is a perfect place for the final. Enjoyed the young man at the desk inside. No way was he gonna give us the coin unless we knew the password. Thank you all very much for a fun, informative adventure and the beautiful coin!!! A favorite for sure.

 

And don't forget, it's not too late to join in the fun! Go to www. geocaching.com to see how geocaching works, and click here for the Find BernCo Bernie Geocaching Challenge.
