Geocache Talk is interested in all things geocaching and our attempts to bring the best information and entertainment to the geocaching community takes all forms – including books. The co-hosts of the Geocache Talk Podcast are also authors and intend to continue to add value to the geocaching universe by bringing the best information available while still providing entertainment.

What’s so great about geocaching? Geocaching is the outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver to hide and seek containers at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world. But it is so much more than that! It is where it takes you to find them, it’s the people you meet and the challenge of the hunt. WHY THESE LISTS?If you are a geocache then the answer to this question is, “why not?” Or “it’s about time!” If you’re not a geocacher then my hope is that this book will inspire you to become one. Geocachers, by nature, make lists. We make lists of the geocaches that we want to find or we make lists of geocaches that have inspired us and we want to make geocaches like them.
