For those who might like to hear what the new Navicache management has to say, this is what they shared on Facebook and the Madcacher.com blog on April 17.
|We wanted to share our big news with everyone! While you might not use navicache.com now - we're hoping to marry it to our blog to offer everyone great geocaching experiences. Thank you for all the support! The feedback we've gotten through the blog and here encouraged us to take this step. We'll provide updates as we update the site. |

Leeward Coast LLC, parent company of the geocaching blog www.Madcacher.com, announced today the purchase of www.Navicache.com one of the longest-running geocaching websites on the Internet.
Navicache.com, first registered in 2001, currently has a database of over 11,500 caches worldwide and more than 38,000 registered users. Leeward Coast plans to integrate it’s existing geocaching blog and social media presence to include Navicache.
Ej Martin, CEO of Leeward Coast, said about the purchase, “I am very excited to bring Navicache.com into our portfolio of websites. Both Kurt and I are avid geocachers and our interaction with the geocaching community has been nothing but positive since taking control of Madcacher.com. When I saw that Navicache.com was for sale, I felt that it was important that it remain an independent geocaching resource and not land into the hands of someone who wanted to turn it into a link-farm or other property. ”
Over the course of the next few months, the website will be receiving several updates, the responsibility of which will fall to Leeward Coast’s COO, Kurt Milligan. “The acquisition of Navicache.com is a major milestone in our efforts to create the best geocaching experience on the internet,” said Milligan. “Navicache.com is one of the oldest websites devoted to this exciting adventure sport, and we are proud to extend the website’s capabilities in years to come. We have a lot of big ideas for the future, including a major site redesign, updated functionality and a few secret features we’ll keep under wraps, for now.”
If you have any questions about why we’ve decided to take on the site or are interested in what this will mean, please let us know by posting a comment below or via our contact page.
Hopefully, we'll hear from him directly, soon.
