It’s hard to remember a time before geocaching. After geocaching comes into your life, things around you can change. You may look at a common household item as a TOTT (tool of the trade) or a unique container as a potential geocache. We’re exploring ‘Before’ and ‘After’ transformations once geocaching comes into your life.
|Before Geocaching||After Geocaching|
|SWAG||Stuff we all get||Stuff we all get but better! Let me discover, trade, and move trackables!|
|Pretty location||Wow, this is a nice view||Wow, this would be a great place for a geocache!|
|Tupperware||A container for leftovers||My reason for adventuring outside. A hidden container to hold SWAG or a sense of accomplishment after searching or solving.|
|Tree climbing||A childhood activity||An activity that gets me closer to my geocaching goals! With the right safety precautions, it’s a combination of an adrenaline rush and natural beauty that’s hard to beat.|
|Kayak||A type of watercraft||A means to an end. My ultimate tool of the trade for getting those T5 caches!|
|Streaking||….||A very different meaning now. Finding geocaches or attending Events every day creates an addicting challenge.|
|Souvenir||A momento that is kept as a reminder of a person, place, or thing||A sense of accomplishment for geocaching somewhere new, completing an HQ challenge, or attending an event!|
