Geocaching is an adventure that goes beyond just the numbers. However, sometimes it’s important to stand back and look at what all those numbers mean. Geocaching just recently surpassed more than 2 million active geocaches worldwide. That’s 2 million on-demand adventures available around the world for active RVers, 2 million locations for you to discover during your travels, 2 million reasons to get out your RV and take a walk after dinner, 2 million reasons for youth to go outside and get some exercise, 2 million possibilities to learn something new or visit a historic site.
It truly is a family friendly hobby that can be enjoyed virtually anytime anywhere. Even the littlest in the family like finding treasure as this video demonstrates.
To see the placement of 2 million geocaches across the globe in an elapsed time of one minute, watch this fun video here.
By the way, the two millionth geocache was placed near Alice Springs located in the Northern Territory of Australia.
RVing down under, now that is an adventure in RVing for my bucket list!
Dave Helgeson’s many roles in the RV industry started before he even had a driver’s license. His grandparents and father owned an RV dealership before the term “RV” had been coined, and Dave played a pivotal role in nearly every position of an RV dealership. He and his wife Cheri launched their own RV dealership in the Pacific Northwest. The duo also spent 29 years overseeing regional RV shows. Dave has also served as President of a local chapter of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), worked on the board of advisors for the RV Technician Program of a local technical college, and served as a board member of the Manufactured Home and RV Association. Dave’s reputation earned him the title of “The foremost expert on boondocking,” bestowed by RV industry icon, the late Gary Bunzer (The RV Doctor). When he’s not out boondocking, you’ll find Dave in the spotlight at RV shows across the country, giving seminars about all things RVing. He and Cheri currently roam in their fifth travel trailer, with Dave doing all the service, repair and modifications to his own unit.
