100 Plus Geocaching Terms

100 Plus Geocaching Terms

If you are a regular reader or have spotted the menu bar at the top of this blog you will know that we are keen geocachers. We love nothing more than spending a few hours hunting through the briar and bramble for tiny pots, hidden by equally enthusiastic hiders. As weird as that sounds it really isn't that odd.

If you don't already know what Geocaching is then I'd advise checking out my post What is Geocaching first. the rest of you read on for 100 plus Geocaching Terms.

The idea of this post is to provide a long list of terms that you may come across if you take up this fun hobby, when we first started there were often words or phrases that we just didn't understand. We ended up researching as much as we could, and these are the ones we have found most useful, just skip below the image for the full list, and if you fancy sharing it please feel free to pin the image.
