Geocaching, according to Wikipedia, is an outdoor treasure-hunting game in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called “geocaches” or “caches”) anywhere in the world. For the Social Media Geocaching Treasure Hunt, we’ll have three teams competing on three different geocache courses to get the ultimate and shared goal—but we’re not going to tell you what that is until you find it.
We’ll meet at the Leif Ericsson statue, located at Charlesgate East and Comm Ave or N 42 20 922 / W 071 05 488, at 6:30pm. From there, we’ll break into teams and depart from statue around 6:45pm. If you’re coming late to the hunt, shoot @skalik a DM or call her at 503-320-0048, and she’ll match you up with a team already on the road.
You don’t need to bring a GPS unit to play; however, if you have one, please bring it, because we still need one or two!
As usual, we’ll end things with a visit to a nearby pub.
