Welcome Introduction

Geocaching is a worldwide adventure sport which utilizes GPS devices to hide and seek hidden containers called geocaches. (Learn more about geocaching) To get started geocaching, all you need is a GPS receiver and a geocache location. (Learn more about getting started) You can find a nearby geocache location at geocaching.com by entering an address or town into the search box.

The Manitoba Geocaching Association (MBGA) strives to advance the sport of geocaching through social activities, public education and promotion of geocaching. (Learn more about the MBGA).

  1. When did you start Geocaching?
  2. April 16, 2005. I had known about geocaching for a while but had never gone to find any. My use of GPS receivers was limited to work (biology type stuff) and wilderness travel. Based on my experience I was asked to teach a navigation course including the use of GPS. I figured that geocaching would be something interesting to add since it was quite popular and I thought it would be a good idea for me to go and find a few (5 or 6) so I could speak with some knowledge - I found those few and many more.
