I'm very intrigued by this section of the forum. I've been geocaching for years now. Is this just geocaching with an off-road twist? Geocaches that are set up by OB members? Or caches that are not registered on geocaching.com but are actually set up on here?
As I said, I've been geocaching for quite some time, so this caught my attention. But I can't tell if it's something new, or just more documentation of certain caches I'm already finding. Can you help clear it up for me?

click on this link...might help.

Looks like what I've already been doing.
I'm not trying to come off sounding dumb or a jerk, but is the 'Overland Bound Geocache' thread and subthreads just to bring it to the top of the conversation? That thread you gave me the link to is talking about it already. Or am I still missing something?
By the way, my handle is Hangin' and I'm a premium member with 559 finds over the past years. It's actually a big part of our adventuring trips. We use the Cachly app and my daughter and SIL use the Geocaching app to find them. I've come a long way from downloading them into GSAK on my computer, then importing into my Garmin and printing off tons of pages of info. And my iPhone does a pretty good job of finding them even out of cell service.

Oh. Sorry, thought that link might help. I know NOTHING about geocaching and just heard the term for the first time when I joined on last year. I remember seeing that link and thought it might be helpful. You might want to read thru the thread and if one or two members stand out as maybe being pretty experienced with it, send them a personal message and ask. Surely someone on here can answer that.
