Geocaching Friday: Get Fired Up for Geocaching!

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

Happy Friday to you all!!

If you’re a geocacher, you’ll definitely want to be in Smackover next Saturday, Aug. 28, for the 2010 Fired Up for Geocaching event! I attended last year’s event and had a wonderful time. It’s an opportunity to meet other cachers from throughout the region. The event begins at 5 p.m. in the Smackover City Park, followed by dinner at 7.

Another event that you DON’T want to miss is 2ter’s First Big Event! Beginning at noon at Papa Pablono’s Mexican Café in El Dorado, this is the first event 2ter (also known as Rachel) has hosted. It’s a way for cachers to get together for lunch and “talk shop.” Rachel, by the way, is a mere seven years old! The photo of Rachel to the left was taken at a recent geocaching event at Petit Jean State Park. This kid is serious about caching. To date, she has found nearly 250 caches. Her dad, Justin, is a dedicated cacher himself!

It’s also the perfect time to experience some of the great caches Union County and L.A. (Lower Arkansas) have to offer. As I’ve mentioned in previous blogs, these caches are some of the most creative I’ve very seen!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
