Geocaching Slang

***Geocaching Slang***

You may see people writing the following “slang” when they are logging their find online or even in the log books. I have made a list of the most used ones and hope that you find them useful. You can find the complete list of geocaching words HERE



ALR = Additional Logging requirement
BYOP = Bring Your Own Pen
BUG = Travel Bug
Cache = Geocache
Cacher = Geocache
CITO = Cache in trash out
D/T = Difficulty/ Terrain
DNF = Did not find
FTF = First to find
GZ = Ground Zero
LPC = Lamp post cache
LN = Left Nothing
PQ = Pocket query
SL = Signed log
STF = Second to find
SWAG = Stuff we all get
TFTH = Thanks for the hide
TFTC = Thanks for the cache
TNLN = Took nothing left nothing
TB – Travel Bug
TB Hotel = Exchange post for TBs
TOTT = Tools of the trade

There are more geocaching terms but I wanted to keep the slang different from the slang. Please see the link above for the complete list.

Please don’t be shy to comment below if I have forgotten any. I will add them to my list! Thank you SO much for stopping by and feel free to ask any question you may have. I will gladly answer it as best as I can!
