Last year, Jeep had a fun contest where they hid Jeep Travel Bugs all across the U.S. and with the aid of a GPS, you could participate in their game to win fun prizes.
This year, there’s no such game (yet), but they do have an online version of Jeep geocaching that they’re letting people download and play for free.
This is a serious game for diehard Jeepers though… it’s a 63 MB download!
Free? Yes. But this is not a game to be taken lightly.
My guess is that those who download and play this game are the competitive type. Check out some of the challenges:
- Explore the terrain in one of 4 Jeep vehicles: 2008 Liberty Limited, 2007 Grand Cherokee Limited, 2007 Commander Limited, or a 2007 Wrangler Rubicon.
- Hop out of your Jeep vehicle at any time to access hard-to-reach areas on foot.
- You must collect the cache to unlock postcards and e-mail them to your friends.
- Compete in 5 timed “mini-missions” and get your score on Jeep’s global leaderboard.
- Experience realistic weather effects in 5 different terrains
Sounds like fun, right?

Since we’ve been married, my husband and I have owned 5 Jeeps (3 Wranglers and 2 Grand Cherokees). And when we’re not driving our own Jeep, we’re usually renting one (a 4×4 Wrangler on vacation). We keep a Jeep Bucket List of places that we’d like to go next, and we're always crossing more states off our list of 'Places That We’ve Jeeped in the USA'. As our daily driver, we keep the soft top on our Jeep Wrangler year round (and the back window permanently rolled up) so the dogs can enjoy the ride. Yep… even in the winter! I've been sharing my best Jeep ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998. When I’m not Jeeping or writing about Jeeps, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
