Symbol for a Geocaching Event

Geocaching Event

The short answer:

CITO is an acronym for Cache In and Trash Out.

The long answer:

A CITO is a social event for geocachers. Geocachers have several mottoes. Of those mottoes, the most sacred it probably Leave No Trace.

CITOs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area are often hosted by city and state parks. The event is posted on Geocaching.com. Geocachers who wish to support the community while caching post a “will attend.” At the event, the hosts provide trash bags. As caches are sought, trash is picked up.

A CITO event is typically about three hours long. Earth Day is celebrated with a CITO.

In case you’re curious, I have no idea of how to pronounce CITO. All I know is that I love participating!

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
