Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt using GPS enable devices to find “caches” hidden all over the world. In Door County alone, there are hundreds of caches hidden in cemeteries, parks, and historical landmarks from Brussels to Rock Island. Geocaching is a great way to discover new parts of the County that you may not have otherwise thought to visit, and can lead you deeper into areas that you may not have explored as thoroughly as you think!
Geocaching.com is the definitive database for finding caches, and if you don’t have a GPS, virtually any smartphone can become a cache-finding tool by downloading the free app “c:geo” which will link you up with GPS technology and the Geocaching.com website.
The blue tube is called a “Micro” cache. They can range in size from this guy up to a Tupperware container(most common) all the way up to an ammunition box. Also pictured is the log from the micro cache on which finders can record their name, address, and any relevant information about the cache. There are also a couple of trinkets pictured; if a finder wants to take a piece of treasure with them, they must leave something in return.
