So, if you have the appropriate gear, brace yourself for the […]

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. I luckily received one of these 1500 travel bugs and began brainstorming the cool locations I would take it.
