A Dash of the Unexpected GeoTour

Thirty-one geocaches have been hidden throughout North Alabama for Alabama's first official GeoTour—Dash of the Unexpected GeoTour.

Created by the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association (AMLA), Dash of the Unexpected GeoTour is designed to attract both experienced and new geocachers. The GeoTour features 31 attractions, historic sites and unique, locally owned places in the northern Alabama region.

The GeoTour has its own page on www.geocaching.com, which lists the participating geocaches. Geocachers use a GPS device or the Geocaching app on their smartphone to navigate to a set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find a hidden geocache container. Each cache contains a point value that participants will record in a passport (downloadable on www.northalabama.org/geocache). Participants must sign the physical cache log for each geocache find and record the find on www.geocaching.com to be eligible. The first 300 cachers who achieve 60 total points are eligible to receive Dash of the Unexpected GeoTour Geocoin, trackable on Geocaching.com. The first 100 cachers who achieve 75 total points will receive the coin and a special Dash of the Unexpected t-shirt.
