Geocaching goes touristy

I’m not sure if I have posted about geocaching before, and I realize geocaching may be on the fringe of nature travel, but it’s great fun and a unique way to explore trails. People who are familiar with this high-tech treasure hunt done with a GPS device know the slogan “Cache in, trash out,” so good geocachers do indeed help the environment.

I just happened to come across this brochure by the Charlotte Harbor and Gulf Islands tourism development council that promotes geocaching — but not in just any old way. Tourism businesses got together to put goodies in official tourism board geocaches to get travelers out and exploring the county. I haven’t seen another tourism board do this before, so this is innovative.

Does this mean geocaching has gone mainstream?
