    What is geocaching?

    Geocaching is an outdoor high-tech treasure-hunt that uses GPS coordinates
    and online clues to guide participants to hidden “caches.” These caches are typically small containers placed in unique locations that bring cachers to sites and
    places they have never visited before. Caches can be placed in plain site or obscured from view. They may contain a small treasure and/or secret word and may also include a physical log for cachers to sign. Currently, there are over 2 million geocaches placed in more than 100 countries.

    To get started geocaching and sign up for a free membership visit www.Geocaching.com.
