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?

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
