First held in 2003 by JoGPS as a way to bring “geocachers from all over” together. JoGPS says it started as “all about the numbers” but continues as “all about the number of new friends you make and smiles you share.” In 2006, GeoWoodstock Dallas become the first Geocaching Mega Event, in the world. In 2018, GeoWoodstock Cincinnati became the first Geocaching Giga Event in North America. The event continues to be an annual pilgrimage for Geocachers around the globe.
Who are the GW Ambassadors?
