Geocaching Friday: New Caches, a Meet and Greet in Jonesboro and a Metro Scavenger Hunt in Clinton

On Fridays, I’ll share some of my favorite geocaching spots, as well as upcoming caching events throughout The Natural State. Even if you’re not a cacher, the Friday blogs will feature towns and attractions throughout the eastern section of Arkansas…perfect for a weekend trip!

Happy Friday to you all!

Fall, as well as fall weather, has officially arrived in The Natural State. As I’ve stated before, autumn is my favorite time to geocache!

As I made my way to Geocaching.com this morning, I noticed that there are a plethora of new caches that were released yesterday. You’ll definitely want to check those out for a few possible First to Finds (FTFs) this weekend.

Arkansas State University Museum in Jonesboro is hosting a Meet and Greet on Oct. 9 in conjunction with the grand opening of GPS Adventures Arkansas exhibit. GPS Adventures Arkansas was the first exhibit endorsed by Geocaching.com that focuses on a single state. The exhibit takes visitors through a 1,500-square-foot maze that explains the concept of GPS, the history of navigation, the sport of geocaching and the Arkansas State Park’s ParkCache program.

The town of Clinton is hosting their first Metro Scavenger Event on Oct. 9. Cachers are invited to the Main Street Park Pavilion. The scavenger hunt begins promptly at 9 a.m. and continues through noon. There’s a list of great prizes that will be given away to some lucky cachers!

 
You can find out more about each event by visiting Geocaching.com.

It’s going to be a WONDERFUL weekend in The Natural State. Get out and find some caches!
