What's in a Geocach?

Between the micro geo's and the extra large geo's there's always something to see.  It could be just a note or something that's "treasure" to the last person who found.

That's the thing.  If you go geocaching, be sure and bring things to leave in the geo.  That's half the fun.  The treasures are always changing and you can go back and visit geos you've already seen and find something new.


Some Favorites Around Great Falls:

Montana Roadhouse:  A micro geo outside of one of Great Falls' most famous burger joints.  Remember to sign and replace it when you find it.

Dead Inside:  A large geo that's inspired by the show The Walking Dead.  It may startle you when you open it, but isn't that half the fun?  This cache is available 24/7 for a good scare.  Keep in mind, it's in someone's yard.

Ode To Geo DoDad:  A regular size geo that's a tribute to a treasured family member and avid geocacher.  Keep in mind, they'd appreciate it if you searched after 6pm.

With summer coming up and budgets tight, geocaching is a fun cost effective activity that the whole family can enjoy.

Be sure and let us know what you find.
