Geocaching at Paris Mountain State Park

  1. Tom, I’m surprised that there were not more taking advantage of the workshop. I’ve been geocaching for about 7 years. Turning off selective availability has opened up so many ways to use GPS. In 2001-2002, I was lucky enough to be on the development team of an Urban Forestry Tree Inventory System that consists of a handheld computer linked with GPS and software for both handheld and desktop computers. The software is currently used by Air Force bases all over the world as well as by many other military bases and cities with urban forestry management programs.

    Geocaching is so much fun and great exercise. And no matter where you are, you can almost always find a cache location nearby.

  2. More Minnesota parks are recognizing the value of geocaching too. I understand the environmental impact, but when I compare that to the impact of horses and mountain bikes in the same parks, I’m skeptical about the concern.

  3. I wonder if you would have gotten more participants in the Spring? Maybe you’ll have an opportunity to try again when the weather warms up.

    I’m working on using the Motorola Droid with caching to go paperless!

  4. It is encouraging to note that science centers and state parks are becoming more geocaching aware and are willing to share their knowledge of the environmental impact that caching can have with geocachers. Learning from the experts on how to geocache while minimizing the negative impact on the environment, such as “geo-trails”, has become very important to me in my caching efforts. I hope that more and more state parks, science centers and even city parks and recreation departments, make the effort to educate and entertain their visitors through geocaching.
