Tip of the Day 8/4:Terracaching

Members of Terracaching.com may dispute the statement that there’s only one geocaching site that matters. Terracaching,which isn’t affiliated with Groundspeak,is a members-only club for high-quality geocaching,or at least that’s how it describes itself. Registration is free,but to become a full member,you need to find two other members to sponsor you. The site makes this fairly easy via a bulletin board system.

Terracaching “employs a complex,dynamic rating system which learns from members and actively encourages a focus on the quality,not quantity,of caches that members post,”the site says. “If you’d like to spend more time outdoors on fun,memorable,and challenging cache hunts and less time online wading through hundreds of questionable cache listings,you’ve come to the right place!”

Terracaching doesn’t list nearly as many caches as Geocaching.com —we counted just 14 within a 10-mile radius of Dallas-fort Worth airport,compared to more than 1,100 on Geocaching.com —but it says the quality of its listings are much higher. Anyone can place a cache,but the ones that withstand the test of time are those that are rated by other members as being particularly creative or devilish.
