What is Geocaching?

Click here to go to the Geocaching.com web site. Sample cache.  Many caches are contained in plastic pretzel jars, tupperware, or ammo boxes. Geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for GPS users. Participating in a cache hunt is a good way to take advantage of the wonderful features and capability of a gps unit. Individuals set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the internet using the geocaching.com web site. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. All the visitor is asked to do is if they get something they should try to leave something for the cache.
