Geocaching event to teach basics

POSTED: March 21, 2013 12:30 a.m.

The geocaching team of EBBJr, which consists of Ed and Kimberly Brown, and their son, Caden, 5, will hold a meet and greet/geocaching class beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 23, at the Jane Hurt Yarn Interpretive Center meeting room at Tallulah Gorge State Park.

Team EBBJr has found more than 1,800 geocaches in their nine years of caching. They will give an overview of the basics of geocaching. Or visitors can skip that part and head out to find several great caches in the park.

“We hope that this will be an afternoon where new geocachers can learn more about the sport, and experienced geocachers can socialize, find a few caches, and see what a great park Tallulah Gorge is,” Ed Brown said.

The event is presented by Friends of Tallulah Gorge State Park. The class is free; parking is $5 without a pass. A free account on geocaching.com is desired but not required.

The only equipment necessary for geocaching is a hand-held GPS receiver or a GPS on your iPhone or Android. You can download inexpensive ($5-$10) geocaching apps for these devices.
