Geocachers, Take Notice of Smithville!
For about two years now, the Katy House Bed and Breakfast has been one site of the many geocaches that can be found in or near Smithville, Texas. Whether you’re an old-timer at geocaching or a brand-new fan, you should come look in Smithville. There are now 40 geocaches hidden within 4 miles of the Smithville Post Office, making this area an absolute gold mine of geocaches! If you want to see what we’re talking about, go to http://www.geocaching.com/ and put in Zip Code 78957 to search for geocaches in this area.
Since being placed, the Katy House has had about 70 visitors coming to find the geocache. Further, some friends once hid a Travel Bug in the geocache called “A Ticket to Ride” (not far from the Katy House), and it has now traveled to Japan, Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, Switzerland and Germany! They just wished they could’ve gone with the Travel Bug.
