How to Geocache Like a Girl | The Geocaching Junkie

What does it mean when someone says that you do something ‘like a girl’?

You throw like a girl.

You run like a girl.

You fight like a girl.

Unfortunately, describing anything as being done ‘like a girl’ usually carries negative connotations, and it’s about time that changed. What does it really mean to do something ‘like a girl’? I meet many female geocachers of all ages everywhere I go, and I can confirm that geocaching ‘like a girl’ actually means not being restricted by gender or regressive points of view, and generally being all-round remarkable and inspirational human beings!

  1. Trouble is I think like a girl and she’s there inside but I have gained more years than a girl which stops me getting to some of those caches. However, I still love geocaching. Love the photos.

    1. Doing anything ‘like a girl’ shouldn’t mean weakness or fear anymore! So if you think like a girl, that makes you strong-willed in my eyes 😉

  2. Great photos of places I recognise, of cachers I’ve seen in log books and places yet to be discovered. All wonderful inspirations to continue enjoying the great extremeness of it all.

  3. In my experience, caching like a girl means persevering until you find it plus getting prickled and scraped in the process without moaning. I guess that may just be caching like a me, not a them!

  4. I’ve done about half of those things while geocaching, and my very first FTF was a (surprise) tree climb, by myself, at 8am on a school day. The most fun I’ve had while caching are the day trips I take with my fellow “middle-aged” moms who love to crawl in tunnels, climb trees, and dig in the dirt. Our slogan? GGC! Girls Gotta Cache!!

  5. Caching like a girl means going all the places my dad can’t/shouldn’t go. (I’m 5’2″ and 100lbs. He’s 6’2″ and 220lbs.) I climb the trees and go /under/ the brush.
