A Geocaching Mega-Event
in Rome, Georgia, USA!
October 2-6, 2019

Plan now to attend Going Caching 2019 – the most highly themed (and 3rd largest!) geocaching Mega-Event in North America.

Ahoy all ye geocachin’ pirates, adventurers, an’ ladies an’ gentlemen of fortune! We be musterin’ up seven pirate crews to come to the aid of those misfit pirates what sail aboard the Black Barnacle. Though their past misadventurin’ be legendary, this time Captain Jack an’ his crew of scurvy skallywags are in quite a pickle for they be marooned far from the sea. While they were misbehavin’ and misdemeanorin’ in the Gulf o’ Mexico, a whale of a storm appeared and pushed the Black Barnacle toward Mobile Bay and right into the mouth of the river. Lost in the fog, the Crew kept sailin’ — an’ a-sailin’ — until the Black Barnacle ran aground near Rome, Georgia. An’ there they be, waitin’ for ye to come hunt for treasure in this strange, faraway land an’ perhaps lend a hand (or at least a hook) in getting them back to the sea. Arrgh!

Lots of new geocaches, from easy-to-find to brain-busting puzzles, will be awaiting your arrival. Log your “will-attend” now in order to receive Mega-Event information and updates!
