Don’t you just hate it when you KNOW that Geocaching.com does FILL IN THE BLANK but you can’t remember where you saw the link? That happened to me the first time I was hiding a geocache; I wanted to print out that cool sheet that appears in the caches. You know the one I’m talking about, right? The printout that says “Congratulations, You’ve Found It!” and then goes on to explain what geocaching is.
I knew that printout had to exist. Somewhere. After all, I’d seen it in caches around Northern Arizona. I just didn’t know how to navigate the geocaching.com website in order to find what I was looking for!
This article is actually a reader’s request and addresses just that issue: What ARE the parts of geocaching.com?
Since this website is HUGE and offers a ton of information, I’m giving my top three pages you need to know the anatomy of! If you have a section of geocaching.com that you feel everybody should know about, then let me know!
The Home Page
We all know the homepage of geocaching.com — that’s where you can log into your account!
Well, have you ever scrolled DOWN the page a bit? There’s a ton of really neat links hidden towards the bottom of the page.
So, starting on the top left and heading down the page:
- You can search for a geocache from this page using a zip code or a GC code
- A section for interesting products and services
- Upcoming geocaching events around the world
