The events are great for social community, and I know many people that geocache with others they have met along the way. I geocache alone or with my son mostly, but when he's older and off doing his own thing I look forward to caching with someone else. I've also created a friendly competition with a local cacher, and try to beat him to newly published caches and chase after his when he publishes some. It's fun to play the game with others but not necessary and I know many that don't. Some take it too seriously or some don't take it seriously enough, depending on how you see it. I recently did a geotour and upon showing up I began following behind a couple that were also doing it. Eventually I joked about how I didn't know the area and may or may not be following them, and we ended up exchanging trackables and doing the whole tour together. It was fun and way better than going alone as I had intended.

Thank you. The friendly competition you have going on sounds like fun. I think I'm convinced by now and will be signing up mid next week. Once I get into it and actually search for my first cache I will post my experience with my first hunt on here.

I think the thing that i enjoy most is the ingenuity of caching and the amazing places that you end up in. Some catcher's make the most amazing receptacles to hide caches in from a Snail shell to a magnetized bolt under a bridge and it's an amazing way of breaking a long road trip.
