Tip of the Day 9/13:CITO

Sometimes all the acronyms of geocaching can get confusing to a newbie,so we’d like to help with some common abbreviations that cachers will find in logs and descriptions on Geocaching.com.

In this Geo-Jargon Monday,we’d like to tell you what “CITO”is.

“CITO”means…

Cache In/Trash Out.

It is the code of all geocachers to leave an environment better than they found it,and in that vein,CITO was born. Picking up random trash in any area and taking it out with you to deposit in a trash can is always a nice thing,but it also has the effect of endearing geocachers to the owners of land surrounding a cache site.

CITO is also a type of Event Cache,whereby a group of geocachers congregate in a park or other public area and spend some time cleaning it up. These events can take place at any time of year,but are particularly popular in the spring.

Carrying a bunched-up plastic bag in your gear bag ensures that you always have something to carry the trash out with. We highly recommend CITOing whenever and wherever you cache.
