What Equipment do You Need?
- GPS or Smart phone – An essential piece of equipment! Download the App to IOS or Android
- Mobile Phone – Always carry a mobile phone with you in case you find yourself in a difficult situation. It is also useful to have a phone so that you can ring or text another geocacher for an extra hint if you’re struggling to find the geocache.
- Pen/Pencil – Not all geocaches have a pen or pencil, so carry one just in case. See our range here
- Spare Batteries – You don’t want to run out of power so always carry a spare set with you.
- Snacks/Drinks – As with any outdoor activity, staying hydrated is important. Take along an ample supply.
- Extra Clothing – Check the weather forecast before you go and wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Always be ready for possible changes in weather.
- Maps – A real map (such an Ordnance Survey map) is arguably essential in case your GPS or smart phone runs out of power.
- Tweezers – Some log sheets are hard to remove, so tweezers can be handy to extract the log sheets or geocaches from tight spaces. See our range here
- Compass – Useful to have to help you navigate.See our range here
- Whistle – A great safety device – just in case. See our range here
- First Aid Kit – Useful especially if geocaching with kids. Remember wet wipes, insect repellent and sunscreen. See our range here
- Torch – Good to have in case it gets dark. It is also useful to search in dark hidey holes, such as a large tree hollow. See our range here
- Geoswag – Bring lots of swaps – remember to trade with items of equal or greater value. See our range here
- Hiking Stick – Great for hill walking but also looking for geocaches in nettles or hedges.
- Geocache Repair Kit – It’s nice to be able to do some TLC when needed. Always ask the CO if they would like their log sheets if you replace them. See our range here
