Geocaching Wiki

The logbook is an item found inside a physical geocache to be signed by everyone who finds the cache.


A logbook is one of the traditional items found inside a geocache.  The size of the logbook will vary depending on the cache size.  Some of the smallest caches may only contain a folded up strip of paper.  Some of the larger caches may contain a small notebook.

When a cache is found, it is customary to sign it with the finder's handle and the date.  It used to be quite common to write out a log, much like might be done online.  With the increase in smaller caches, it has become more common to just use the name and date.
