My Urban Adventure – Williston, North Dakota Style!

Urban Adventures launched a trackable promotion in October 2016, asking geocachers to show off their favorite local spots using the #localsknowgeocaching on Instagram.

Gotta Find’em All

Over Thanksgiving weekend, my husband and I decided to place a new geocache, our first multi-cache, in town.

Jangie’s Geocaching Story

Action! Romance! Treasure! North Dakota can sometimes be a tad bit boring. Surprising, I know. During the summer of 2012, my friends and I found ourselves twiddling our thumbs at college in Grand Forks. One of my friends mentioned geocaching, a hobby I had heard in passing, but didn’t have a GPS to begin. Luckily, Blackberry […]
