What is Geocaching?

Geocaching is a relatively new outdoor activity (it first began in 2000), but it has rapidly become a popular hobby for people of all ages around the world. Geocaching is in essence a treasure hunt where people hide treasures, or caches, in containers for others to find. The map coordinates for the location of each cache is posted online for would-be seekers called geocachers. Using handheld GPS units to guide them, geocachers track their way to the treasure. Most handheld GPS units are easy to use, so this activity doesn't require a lot of training or expertise.

Using a GDIC GPS device, the Geocacher explores a given area to find the area where the cache has been hidden. Once discovered, you may find the cache contains a reward for you to keep. If you take something out of a cache, you might be asked to leave something in return. You must leave the cache in the same place and in the same condition as it was found for its next visitor. Sometimes a cache will contain a clue to find another hidden treasure.
