Want to Find Geocaches in Alabama?
“Geocache Alabama" sounds like a call to action for outdoor enthusiasts to throw their portable, handheld GPS devices into their packs and go discover this southern state using this hobby as the exploratory vehicle. In case you don’t know, geocaching entails tracking down treasures hidden in containers that other geocachers put there for you to find. It’s all about getting yourself physically to a set of coordinates where a cache is hidden and sometimes you have to use many of your mental faculties as well to solve riddles along the way.
From the detailed information and relevant clues found on the Internet, the participant then uses a portable GPS device to find a specific cache by foot or on wheels; whatever the case may be. Before we get any further here, perhaps you’d like to learn How to Pack the Perfect Geocaching Backpack. That article gives you a worthy guide on what to bring along for various geocaching expeditions.
One of the biggest draws of this hobby is, in fact, the collective nature of the experience. There is a sense of community in that the geocachers before and after your own particular experience feel even though you will most likely never meet them in anything other than the virtual world. This should motivate the best of you to leave an intriguing trinket in place of the one you find or if it’s a trackable coin, send it along on its journey across the world.
The first time I ever planted my much younger, semi-reckless feet on that red Alabama clay was when I landed in a parachute after jumping out of an airplane (that curiously wasn’t experiencing any technical difficulties) which left from the army base in Ft. Benning, Georgia. There was a sign on the drop zone that said “Welcome to Alabama, Thanks for Dropping In." Later that evening, in a bar called the Supper Club, near Auburn University, even funnier things occurred; but those memories are a whole lot foggier because of several rounds of a local elixir known as the “Alabama Slammer." Much later that evening I actually did end up in an Alabama slammer for incoherently wandering in the middle of a road, something about possessing a fake ID, and probably because I was a Yankee. Before I digress any further, however; let’s get back to planning your more law abiding trip using the best resources available to get the most out of this outdoor hobby.
