What is Geocaching?
Thousands of people around the world enjoy the activity of Geocaching. This adventure involves the use of a handheld GPS receiver, and based on information provided on the official geocaching website the GPS receiver guides its operators to hidden treasures waiting to be found throughout the natural landscape. A typical cache consists of a waterproof container, a log book and trinkets that serve as trade items. Participants typically choose an item, then replace it with an item of equal value. Once the log book is signed and trinkets exchanged, the container is put back in exactly the same place it was found, to await the next searcher.
