He’s back … and quite literally. Since OpenCaching launched its first piece of official merchandise – a collectible Opie pathtag – four score and however many months ago, the oh-so-cute mascot has been keeping a rather low profile.

Opencaching.com Also Adds New Features

Probably overshadowed by the release of Groundspeak’s Geocaching Challenges are the site updates that Garmin’s OpenCaching.com has released.
