Maryland Catches Geocaching Fever

This has to be the most ambitious geocaching project we’ve ever seen. The Maryland Municipal League is launching a “Geocache Trail”to bolster the state’s tourism and it has gained the participation of cities and towns across the state to place 78 caches.

Participants can go to any participating visiting center and obtaining a “passport”pointing you to the cache locations. Containers have small giveaway items and brochures featuring the many places to visit and see in the city. According to the MML website set up for the competition:

The trail is comprised of 78 city/town caches located in the 11 MML Districts (regions) throughout the state. A collectible,highly coveted geocoin will be given to the first 500 geocachers who locate a minimum of 22 city/town caches throughout the state. To be eligible for the coin,geocachers must pick up a passport at any participating visitor center,use the stamp in each cache on their passports and write in the cache code word. After at least two municipal caches in each of the 11 districts are discovered,geocachers may return to any one of the participating county visitor centers and have their passports validated to receive a collectable coin.

To give you an idea of how big this project is,here’s a snip from a map the league posted showing towns that are participating in the program. They’re designated with blue dots. There are many sponsors,including the Maryland Geocaching Society,which coordinated the trail. You can also read more here.
