So I've never paid attention to the Waymarking site until today when I Google'd to see if a cache was placed near the Janesville Armory. It came up as a Waymark. I looked for local Waymarks and my first Waymarking log tonight was dated back to my first geocache found in the same location.

It seems like everything is a Waymark? There is even one for the Newville Subway. Shocked

I know Geocaching, Munzee, etc. offers so many different options and ways to play. Are these worth digging through and logging?

Many people enjoy waymarking. If you are one of those people who enjoy geocaching for the places it brings you, rather than the containers, or the numbers, or the puzzles, or whatever, you probably would like it.

Yup, pretty much anything can be a Waymark, but it can be fun if you limit the categories that you search rather than getting everything in an area. For example, I love National Parks and will check for waymarks in the "NPS Passport Cancellation Station" category to help get me to the visitors center. Some of my other favorite categories are "Best Kept Secrets", "Impact Craters", "Oddball Museums", and "Off Leash Dog Areas". I only search my favorites, which cuts out the Subways and McDonalds and stuff I'm not interested in.

In my opinion, they made a mistake by approving the McDonald's, Wal-Mart, and Subway categories. Isn't that what the store locators on their respective sites are for?

I agree that the fast food places and Walmarts etc. just clutter up the site, but some people must like them because they have waypoints out there. At least with the categories it's not that hard to exclude them.

As much meaning as a geocaching find count.
