Want to know a secret? Of course you do! Right now, in your city or town, there are dozens…perhaps hundreds of hidden treasures just waiting to be found. Did you go to a park last week? There may have been one under the bench by that one tree that looks like the pope. Go for a walk yesterday? You probably passed by two, but you were just a muggle so you passed by none the wiser.

He’ll explain to us what geocaches are, why it’s no good to be a muggle, and how you can get started ASAP. It’s time to take your walks, your hikes…your life to the next level.
