Jul 12, 2012 - BKT/MADD TRACKABLE GEOCOIN UPDATE

Checked in on the BKT/MADD trackable coin and found a couple of pics to share.

 

This pic is the BKT/MADD trackable geocoin found in a geocache in Banff.

Geocache 4

 

This family picked up the trackable in a geocache in Okotoks, AB while visiting the Stampede. They are returning to England at the end of the week and will take the trackable coin with them.  SO Exciting!

Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

 Geocaches can be found all over the world. It is common for geocachers to hide caches in locations that are important to them, reflecting a special interest or skill of the cache owner. These locations can be quite diverse. They may be at your local park, at the end of a long hike, underwater or on the side of a city street.

 Geocaching is fun for people of all ages. For children it’s the thrill of finding a cache container filled with treats, for adults it’s the thrill of finding trackable pieces to see where they've come from and where they've been. 

 To participate in this treasure hunt, a hand held GPS device is required.  You must load caches onto the GPS (each GPS device is different) from the www.geocaching.com website where ever you want to find a geocache. We have found geocaches in Mexico on the resort beach, in Radium Hot springs last weekend, Calgary, Leduc and Edmonton.  There's likely a few in your very own neighborhood if you just put your postal code into the search field on the geocaching.com website.
