    Since I'm a new member here I've been browsing the site eagerly waiting for my Model 3. One thing I've enjoyed doing is researching supercharger locations and reading up on ones that are opening. It seems to be a fun game of searching for new locations and documenting the progress of them being built. That got me thinking that these charging locations could be potential spots to hide geocaches as a way for owners to pass time while charging.

    Shout out if you are an active Geocacher!

    I'm mzairboy, and I currently have 2,074 finds and 28 hides.

    My kids got me into it. It isn't something that I do all the time but it is a nice family outing thing to do. Just did a fun one where we had to pour water on a rock to make the coordinates appear.

    I had a similar thought a few months ago, but being as there are very few superchargers within reach we hadn't done it yet. I'll be using the Columbia, MO SC this weekend and we bought some geocache creating stuff a few months ago, this could be our first Tesla GeoCache!

    More difficult to search the membership rolls now, but there was a metal-worker that was hiding some of his work at superchargers a while back. Maybe he was on TM. Dave the Smelter?
    Anyway, sounds like fun!

    Dave the Smelter did indeed. Haven't seen him at TM for awhile. Maybe he'll make a return with a new crop of goodies.
