How We Got Started
The Berkshire Geobash was a dream of 20+ MA and NY geocachers who wanted to bring geocachers from all over the world together to enjoy the beauty of the area and great caching in the Berkshire Hills. Many months of planning and excitement and on Saturday, July 7, 2012 over 600 geocachers from all over the world came to Bousquet Mountain in Pittsfield, MA to make our event the FIRST MEGA EVENT OF NEW ENGLAND! Our dream came true!
Geocachers from all over New England and many other continental US states and Hawaii, as well as Canada, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Zimbabwe, New Zealand, Ireland, Norway, Slovenia have visited the Berkshires to continue the new tradition of the Berkshire Geobash! Berkshire Geobash #2 (2013) had almost 900 attendees, and Berkshire Geobash #3 (2014) had 1,083 attendees join in the fun! The planning has already started for Berkshire Geobash #5, which will be held on Saturday, July 16, 2016 at Bousquet Mountain in Pittsfield, MA.
For those cachers who choose to come to the Berkshires for a few extra days to try to find all of the great caches in the area we plan a week full of fun events to bring you to the best caching areas we know!!! Whether you join us for the day, a few days, or the full week, you are sure to be entertained and wanting to come back for more!!!
