It’s time to celebrate 15 Years of Geocaching

unnamedThis past weekend, over 170,324 players earned a souvenir for celebrating the 15th anniversary of geocaching by finding a geocache or attending an event. May 2, 2000 was the day when civilian GPS devices received an instant upgrade and their accuracy increased by tenfold. The next day, May 3, was the day the first geocache was placed.

Geocachers who earned their souvenir were the first to know about the Geocaching Road Trip ‘15. Didn’t have a chance to earn your souvenir? That’s ok. Get all the details here.
