In the world of Geocaching, TFTC stands for “Thanks for the Cache”, and is commonly used by geocachers to demonstrate appreciation for those who have placed caches in the wild. Through the use of GPS coordinates, geocachers can track down hidden containers, known as caches, that have been left in interesting locations.
Geocache containers can contain a variety of items such as trinkets, swag, and even logbooks. Every time a geocacher finds a cache, they sign the logbook inside to prove they found it. After discovering a cache, geocachers often leave a comment in the logbook to thank the person who placed it there. This is where the term TFTC comes into play.
By saying TFTC or leaving the acronym inside the logbook, geocachers are expressing their appreciation for the cache owner and showing them that their hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed. It’s also a way for geocachers to connect with one another, as leaving their own TFTC is a way for them to be part of the larger geocaching community.
If you’ve ever been on a geocaching adventure, you know how rewarding it can be to stumble upon a hidden cache. Every time you find a new one, don’t forget to leave your own mark in the logbook by saying TFTC and thanking the cache owner!
