Last weekend, I attended my first official CITO event! CITOs (Cache In Trash Out) are hosted globally by members of the geocaching community. Although I’ve been working for Geocaching.com for more than 2 months now, this was my first formal geocaching event. In the past, my geocache hunts have been done with family or friends, not with the greater geocaching community. It was a lot of fun to meet some the community and help to clean up the environment, just in time for Earth Day.
We cleaned up the waterfront and got to do some beach combing along the way. Our group found old tires, beer bottles, clothing, and some “wildlife.” I found a decaying Sting Ray, a fish head, and a crab claw. No, I did not touch the wildlife.
It was a fun morning outside; I encourage everyone to get involved in a CITO event! You can read MissJenn’s blog post about the event on Latitude 47, the impressive Geocaching.com blog.
