12th Annual Texas Challenge - 2014

Geocaching is a fun, relatively new trend where you get to hunt for treasure. Yes, really! OK, not like gold coins or anything, but treasure nonetheless. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the "geocache" (aka treasure!) hidden at that location. According to the official Geocaching website, there are 2,301,994 active geocaches and over 6 million geocachers worldwide!

Whether you're an expert geocacher or this is the first time you've ever heard of it, you're invited to the 12th Annual Texas Challenge on Mar. 20th-23rd in historically hip Bastrop, Texas. People from across the world will come together to explore Bastrop, searching for hidden geocaches.
You can choose to participate in the challenge or just be a spectator. There will be lots of fun activities, including an official "Bridge Spit" on Mar. 22nd with the International Society of Bridge Spitters. (If you have no idea what a "bridge spit" is or why you would want to be a member of the Society of Bridge Spitters, click here.)

Admission is FREE!!! Pre-registration is required if you want to compete in the challenge or drop off your kids at the Camp Kiddie Cacher. To register, click here. For more information and the schedule of events, click here.
