Geocaching Survey

1. How many times have you been Geocaching in the last week? Last month? Last year? (estimate)

2. Have you ever been Geocaching in a National or State Park? Was geocaching your main motivation for going to the park?

3. If you have Geocached in a National or State Park before, where did you go? Did you use existing trail and access systems or did you blaze your own trail?

4. When Geocaching, is caching your main activity? Do you add geocaching to other activities as a side activity? If so, what activities do you add it to?

5. In what setting do you Geocache most often? (urban, rural, wilderness, etc.)
