Cache Advance is your geocaching hub for all of your caching needs, including the Cache Crate, a monthly subscription box of geocaching and outdoor gear.
Now you can hear the recap on the Podcacher Podcast with the Geocaching Question of the Day weekly! Tune in Sunday night for this week's question recap.
We recently asked: Have you ever hosted a CITO event?
After reading all the answers, we found that about 20% of cachers have hosted a CITO over the years. So here’s what we heard:
- Heidi on G+ Shared: Not at all, I leave it to the pros who wouldn't stress like I would.
- TwoTrack on Twitter shared: Yes. I have hosted 5 on local environmental lands.
- Michigan on Facebook shared: Yes, I hosted a garlic mustard pull at an area arboretum. We worked hard for 2 hours and barely made a dent in it - it really gave me perspective on how big a problem this is.
- Brad has some variety in the CITOs that he hosts. He shared: 2 (by) water, 3 (by) land
- Jason shared: No, but I will host my first on April 29th!
- For those wondering, I’ve personally hosted 2, and helped organize many more with our local club, the Inland Empire Chapter of the Washington State Geocaching Association.
- I would like to encourage more cachers to host CITOs throughout the year. All you need to do is pick a spot, connect with the land managers, and publish the event. Be sure to have drinking water and tools for the clean up, like bags, and a plan for disposal afterwards. Many land managers are eager to help with all of this!
As always, we really enjoyed hearing about cache maintenance. You can to, if you-
