Personal Insight Someone else out there has seen this exact same cache A way to fight the negative effect social media can have on one’s adventurous spirit Social media leads to new and interesting sites, geocaching leads to new and interesting sights Happy medium between social media and the outside world
Cautions Keep it as a low impact tourism activity Don’t alter the environment where the cache is located Try not to look too suspicious Don’t include the location of the cache in your Facebook post if you choose to do so Wait until you get home to post about it No tresspassing
