WILMINGTON, Ohio — Cache, not cash, seems to be all the rage these days. That is, in the world of geocaching.
It’s not new, but it is one of the newer pastimes, consuming the time of more than 5 million people, with more than 2,085,461 active geocaches.
Clinton County, in southwest Ohio, will be unveiling a new GeoTrail June 29, that encompasses a series of geocaches at more than 30 barn sites across the county.
Each barn is part of the Barn Quilt Trail, established two years ago, that is made up of 54 barns. Each barn displays a quilt pattern on its side.
There is a prize for the individuals who finish the Clinton County Barn Quilt GeoTrail and locate all the caches. The first 250 registered geocachers who finish the GeoTrail and abide by the requirements will receive a uniquely-numbered, commemorative coin.
The kickoff for the opening of the Clinton County Barn Quilt GeoTrail will take place June 29 at 9 a.m., at the J.W. Denver Williams Jr. Park, 1100 Rombach Ave., Wilmington, Ohio.
