Ever heard of geocaching? It’s a game of high-tech hide-and-seek, and all you need is a GPS receiver or GPS-enabled smartphone! To introduce newbies to caching, the Fairfield Lane Library has hidden a practice geocache somewhere in the Village Green Park behind the library.
You can look for our practice geocache using these coordinates:
N 39° 20.068′ W 084° 33.917′
Once you locate a geocache using the coordinates provided, you’ll find at minimum a logbook, which you’ll want to sign. Most caches also contain a pencil, and some contain prizes, or swag, that can be traded for swag of your own. When you’re done signing the logbook and trading swag, put the cache back exactly where you found it for the next person.
If you enjoyed that introduction to geocaching, you can register for free at geocaching.com to find more geocaches in the area and across the country and world, in forests, cities, and everywhere in between — including some right here in the Village Green Park. You can also check out some books at the library to learn more. Happy caching!
