lab caches

Recommended Posts

Despite having started caching in 2003 and being a premium member, I still consider myself a newbie.  We used to do long hikes for a single cache.  Now it's all puzzles, park and grab and a race for numbers.   I see "lab caches" in my statistics (obviously a 0), but it isn't something you can search for with the filter.  What are they and how do I find one??  I'd love to try some of these new new cache types.

Look in your app store for Adventure Labs app. These are a separate app and cache experience. That app will show you the ones nearest your location.

I was gonna give a link to explain lab caches  for you, but some reason they now go to this new  "adventure" labs thing,  a phone app...

The sorta-official explanation is "lab caches are an experimental geocache type often played at Mega-Events."

When the site wants to try something new, they might make it a "lab cache" to see what folks think.   :)

Did that.  The closest lab cache is 110 miles away.
