Find is a term used in geocaching to indicate that someone has found a geocache.


The word find is most often used as another way to indicate the completion of a geocache, or the that a geocacher has completed a Found It log on a geocache.  Instead of saying "I found a geocache today", one might say "I made a find today"  It is also commonly used in plural form to indicate how many caches have been found in a given amount of time.  For example, "I made 10 finds today" or "I have 245 finds"

Smiley is often used in place of the word Find.  It refers to the smiley face that a user would see next to any cache that they have previously found.
