Welcome!!!!


You have reached the homepage of the Michigan Geocaching Organization (MiGO). The purpose of our organization is to promote the sport of Geocaching in Michigan via improved communications and to provide information to the public about our activities and the sport of geocaching. Please spend some time on our site. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us or visit www.geocaching.com for more details.

Join MiGO Today! Membership gives you many benefits. MiGO is one of the oldest and most respected Geocaching organizations in the country. Since our inception in April, 2002 we have grown both in size and stature. In 2007 we were granted an organizational land use permit by the Michigan DNR. This permit is paid annually by MiGO and enables all our members to place caches on permitted DNR lands at no fee. This is just one of the many benefits of your free membership. You'll also become part of a local and tight-knit Geocaching community with an active interest in caching in our state. Our forums are very active and are a great place to meet cachers and learn.

Winter Social 2019 Feedback


We came, we met old friends and made some new ones.  

Now we would like to know how we did so we can plan an even better Winter Social 2020!

The feedback, both verbally and in attended logs is mostly positive, but not altogether anonymous.  This survey is.

Please spend a few minutes and tell us what you really think.  If you did not attend, we would like to know why.  If you did attend, we would like your candid opinions regarding what we did well and what we can do better.


WS 2019 Feedback



We tried hard to make this the best Winter Social ever and want to keep improving on that.








MSPC GeoTour


Michigan's first Official GeoTour celebrating the 100 year anniversary of Michigan's State Parks is set to kick off Memorial Day Weekend, 2019 and last three years. 

MiGO's State Parks Work Group and the DNR have been very busy planning one of the best GeoTours yet.  Our team of hiders is hard at work writing their park stories and scouting hiding spots and some are building unique cache "containers".     

The tour will consist of 100 fun and interesting caches, 25 in each MiGO region.  Achieving 20 of 25 finds in any region will net you a nice, regional pathtag.  Achieving 20 of 25 finds in three of the four regions will net you a nice GeoCoin from the DNR.  Achieving 20 of 25 finds in all four regions will net you a special gold GeoCoin from the DNR.  Finding all 100 caches in the GeoTour will get you recognition from Geocaching HQ.

This GeoTour is being implemented and funded by MiGO and our team of hiders.   Do you want to help with this massive project?  Here is your opportunity:

MiGO Store


The latest addition to the MiGO store is the 2019 Michigan Geocaching Calendar.  Every year this calendar is a hot item and sells out quickly.  Don't miss out on your chance to get one. 

The funding to support our organization is derived through member contributions via donations, purchases in our store, and supporting memberships. We appreciate your interest in our organization and our store and invite you to look around. If you have any questions, you can email us at
store@mi-geocaching.org



MiGO Store


Our store is still "under construction"  check back often as we build this feature of the website. We are working on bring new and exciting products to the store.

We are looking at new items to put in the store and are always interested in your feedback.  Is there something you think that the store should have for sale?  Please let us know.






Challenge of the Month


MiGO wants to get you more involved in Geocaching and in MiGO.  To that end, we are announcing the

Challenge of the Month”!

Challenges will be posted on the first Friday of the month, and run until the last Sunday of the month.  You can choose any cache that meets the challenge requirements, but all caches must be found during the challenge period.

 

We want every member to be able to participate, so every challenge will have three levels:

Bronze Level: Pretty much everyone should be able to do these, though some may have you step out of your comfort zone a little!

Silver Level: These will be a bit tougher – it’s a way to push yourself as a cacher!  Can you complete the Silver Level Challenge?

Gold Level:  These are for the most dedicated and hardcore cachers out there!  Challenge yourself to the max and see if you can complete these very tough challenges!

Go to the Forums on the Membership page to learn more and to participate.

MiGO and You


This is the new home of the Michigan Geocaching Organization or MiGO. Geocaching is closing in on 20 years of existence and MiGO has been a part of most of that. Our goal is to promote the activity of geocaching by helping geocachers and those looking to get into geocaching. What can we do to help you? Take a look around and let us know what you think. Feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions. Happy caching!

BIG things are going on at MiGO, and I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what some of them are:

Last May we started the "MiGO Challenge of the Month".  The "Second Season" kicks off March 1st.  Participation has been good, but we'd like everyone to have the chance at coveted prizes awarded to some lucky member each month.  Check out the Forum page on the mi-geocaching.org website for more information. 

August 2019

A Big Summer MiGO Event is in the works.  Stay tuned for more information coming very soon!

MSPC GeoTour
The Spring of 2019 will put Michigan on the world geocaching map with our first official GeoTour!  MiGO and the Michigan Department of Resources are working together to launch a GeoTour to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of Michigan's State Parks.

There are many more things to announce, but they're not quite ready yet.  The new Executive Committee is working hard to restore your faith in our organization.  We have new merchandise in the pipeline for the store.  We have unique and exclusive path tags for you to acquire, we will have a bigger presence at events around the state and be making donations in cash and in-kind for events of all types and sizes.  Let your RVP know if you have an event coming up that you would like MiGO to help with.


Membership Cost

The new site is paid for by the month per active membership. If you pay the $10 supporting membership you are paying for the cost for a year. If you sign up for a free membership MiGO pays the cost. On the old site we had over 7000 listed memberships. Why that many? The answer is people checking the site signed up for free membership and never come back. Signing up every three months weeds those inactive memberships out keeping our cost down.  Which is cheaper paying for 150 members or 7,000?

We  have made big strides in the number of supporting members, but we still have a long way to go to break even.  Are you willing to become Supporting Members!
