When I first started geocaching it was almost like learning a new language. There were terms like “muggle”, “FTF”, and “TFTC” scattered all over geocaching log entries and descriptions. As time passed, I slowly picked up the lingo and began to understand the geocache slang, abbreviations, and acronyms. Most of these terms have now become a part of my natural vocabulary.
However for the new geocacher these terms and acronyms can be confusing and maybe overwhelming at times. Here are some great resources to help define the meaning of geocache slang, abbreviations, and acronyms:

What do you call it? Geocache terms (or terminology), geocache slang, geocache lingo, geocache jargon, geocache abbreviations, geocache acronyms, or somthing else? Let me know in the comments.
Do know of any geocache slang, abbreviations, and acronyms that’s not listed in the resources above, or other geocache lingo sites? Let me know in the comments.
