What is geocaching?
To sum it up geocaching has been called a hi-tech world wide treasure hunt, but to me is much, much more. The basic premise involves someone hiding a container with a log book and sometimes little trinkets inside this is known as a cache. The coordinates to the hiding spot location is then posted online. People use a GPS devices and the provided coordinates to try and locate the geocache. From this point you can sign the log book, maybe take a gift and leave something for the next person. It is also a good idea later to post on the geocaching website that you have found the cache and share your experience and maybe even post a photo of the area.
There are many types of containers ranging from large to small and even micro and nano caches. The smaller containers tend to only contain a log book or a log scroll. The fun part of hiding a geocache is what is commonly referred to as an evil hide which basically means a well camouflaged container in a really good hiding spot. Many geocachers love the tricky hides as it can add a great challenge to the experience. To Many geocachers hiding a geocache is just as rewarding as searching for one.
