What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is essentially a real-life treasure hunt that uses GPS enabled devices. Using the geocaching app, participants navigate to set GPS coordinates to track down a geocache (container) hidden at that location.
Rules of geocaching:
1). If you take something from a cache, leave something of equal or greater value.
2). Write about your find in the cache logbook.
3). Log your experience at geocaching.com
