We are thrilled to announce our first geocache will be left at a location in China. Happy hunting for all those geo caching enthusiasts. We will also have a China gift to a lucky winner for the Chinese New Year of 2019......we will keep you posted. 2018 was Chinese Year of the Dog. 2019 is the Year of the Pig. China is the home to approximately 475 million pigs - over half of the world's pig population. We will put some of the greatest pig crafts right here!! The 2019 Chinese New Year begins February 5th.
