While chasing down the 50 highpoints, several highpointers dive into other adventures such as tripointing and lowpointing. At the 2017 Highpointers Massachusetts Convention, highpointers will get the chance to learn about another hobby–geocaching.
For the uninitiated, geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices.
Some state highpoints, such as Backbone Mountain, Maryland, have geocaches hidden on them.
Club members will have the opportunity to mingle with the geocachers of Berkshire GeoBash during the Massachusetts 2017 Highpointers Convention “Afternoon Delight” at Freight Yard Pub in North Adams on Friday, July 21st. The fun starts at 1 PM and goes until the last person crawls home at close.
