Birthday Bash Geocache from Georgia’s State Parks
Georgia’s State Park system turns 85 this year. Just to prove they haven’t gone all fuddy-duddy, they came up with a new game that anyone with a hand-held GPS can play: the Birthday Bash Geocache. It’s like a treasure hunt … without nasty pirates and crocodiles!
The next time you visit one of the recreation areas from the mountains to the marshes, search for hidden caches in Georgia’s most scenic state parks, including Don Carter on Lake Lanier and Fort Yargo in Winder,
Our pals teamed up with volunteers from Georgia Geo-Campers volunteers to create the quest which includes trackable “geocoin” prizes. Only 1,000 of the limited-edition coins were ordered, so once they’re all claimed, the Birthday Bash Geocache ends.
Geocaching is a popular sport enjoyed by folks of almost any age all around the world. Geocachers are known for their enthusiasm, and sometimes their friendly competition to be the first to find new caches.
Inside each hidden box – or cache – are trinkets for players to trade, as well as log books to sign. Caches at historic sites require players to answer questions about Georgia history before they can unlock the box, making them a fun educational tool too.
