Finding a Geocache requires a bit of pre-planning. The first order of business is to "know" where to look, in order to do that, you must log on to Geocaching.com & create an account.

Here are the results of a search of ZIP Code 17543 Search Results from Geocaching.com

Once you have the coordinates of the caches you are interested in finding, you can program them into your GPS manually or using your computer (not all GPS have this capability). Finding the Geocache is the fun part. When you are out in the woods, finding a cache may seem simple enough but it's not always. Experience is the Geocacher's most useful tool. I have shown only the tip of the iceberg on types of Geocaches. This is a customizable game, you can play it how you choose!

Take this picture for example: Furman Park

Furman Park

The geocache was removed when the park was renovated and moved to the bench in the background.

Or this Example:
Austin & Kasey

The Geocache is a magnetic key holder that was attached to a power meter on the utility pole seen behind the children. It was hidden between the pole & the meter box.

Another form of Geocache, Can you Find it?:A Virtual Cache
The Cache is actually the mile marker that my children are standing around. There is no container, typically you need to answer certain questions that prove you were actually at the site! Incedently, the mile marker is 20 miles from Lancaster PA & 6 miles from Middletown PA (home of Three Mile Island) which made the area famous in March of 1979.
