Welcome to OpenCaching North America! Geocaching is about having fun outdoors while using GPS-enabled devices to find "treasure" hidden by other participants. Typical geocaches are small watertight containers that holds a logbook in which the finder can record their visit. The container may also hold small trinkets that can be traded. To learn more about geocaching visit our wiki pages.

This is the official OpenCaching site for North America (including Central America and the Caribbean) and all US Territories. This site went live on August 18, 2010. Our goal is to have a database of quality, unique caches that, once approved by the OC Team, are enjoyed and rated by YOU, the geocaching community. OCNA offers twelve cache types, including virtual, webcam, and moving caches. We also offer a number of unique cache types: BIT Caches, Guest Book Caches, MP3 (Podcast) Caches, and Benchmarks. The site is 100% free to use with no "regular vs premium member" functions or restrictions.

    Star Mr.Yuck:
    Wow, I never logged a DNF, eh? Well, at least the cache owner knows, I called him the day I DNF'd it! It was in November sometime, shortly after his maintenance visit. I actually found the first two legs, but couldn't find an ammo box in a snowstorm with 2-3 inches of snow on the ground, can you believe that? So I was out in Akron with Barbershop Dru for our mostly annual Good Friday outing, and I convinced her to stop at the unique area for me to cross this off the list. I also needed a micro in the woods there, although she already had that one. We actually stumbled on the back way in to the Preserve at the top of the Escarpment, a parking area I had no idea existed. Found in only about 5 minutes on site, and she actually found the location before I did! Wow, it's jam packed full of good stuff, but I had nothing to trade today. Thanks for placing this excellent cache on our website, which I can now say that I'm an admin, which I wasn't when I started the cache. Laughing I talked a long-time cacher into giving OCNA a try at an event last week, and this is the first one I'm sending him to, if he'll be out this way. TFTC.
