The hours of daylight wane a little more each day as we approach the winter solstice. With all this darkness, what is an adventurous RVer to do? Go geocaching of course! Geocaching doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. There are thousands of night caches hidden around the world. Their clues can only be unraveled in the dark of night. The cache listings are easy to spot with a “Night Cache” attribute. Night caches often rely on small reflectors and ultraviolet light to guide geocachers. Pack all your geocaching basics: a couple of flashlights and a UV light. Be sure to read the cache description to find out if you’ll need additional supplies. Always make sure you tell someone where you’re going and be friendly if a non-geocacher asks about your activities.
There’s only one more step before your adventure through the dark begins. Check out this new Geocaching.com video for a little night caching inspiration. This favorite night cache called, “Wait Until DARK!!” will have you ready to geocache after sundown.
So get online, find a campground containing a night cache or with one nearby, load up the RV and head out for some dark camping and caching. It is an adventure in RVing the whole family will enjoy.
