With a little hard work, determination and a sharp eye, you can find the world's oldest active geocache in Mingo, Kansas! This geocache is a favorite among the devoted hobbyists, not because of the beauty that surrounds it (although there is a certain beauty to the western Kansas plains), or the complexity of the vessel (it's a simple PVC container) but because of the history of the horde. This geocache was the seventh created in the world, the first in Kansas and has outlived all of its predecessors. It was even placed before geocaching.com existed! Thousands of geocachers flock to the site every year, and many make it a milestone-destination find. You won't regret finding this geocache, because find it makes you a part of this hobby's history.
