Description   EN   

There are many local geocaching clubs.  The local club here is NOVAGO (Northern Virginia Geocaching Organization).  Local clubs are a fun place for geocachers to come together, socialize, and organize trips together.  NOVAGO holds monthly get togethers and seasonal picnics.  NOVAGO members also regularly volunteer at geocaching educational events.

The rules to geocaching are simple.  Return a geocache as you found it.  Sign the log book.  If you take some swag, leave some swag.  Geocachers also participate in CITO (Cache In, Trash Out) trying to keep are parks and environment clean.

Geocachers Creed:

When placing or seeking geocaches, I will:
  1. Not endanger myself or others
  2. Observe all laws & rules of the area
  3. Respect property rights and seek permission where appropriate
  4. Avoid causing disruptions or public alarm
  5. Minimize my and others' impact on the environment
  6. Be considerate of others
  7. Protect the integrity of the game pieces

TTF - The park was very busy today, but the cover was just right to make the find. I had a lookout as well. This was just where I expected it. TNLN TFTC

2647.  My 6th ACES cache and 10th in the park, today.  Found this one quickly.  Joining a local caching organization is one of my top recommendations for new cachers.  They are both a great source of information and facilitate the social aspect of geocaching.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
