Geocaching

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world … a typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook ( with a pen or pencil ) … the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name … after signing the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it … larger containers such as plastic storage containers ( systema, tupperware or similar ) or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, such as toys or trinkets, usually of more sentimental worth than financial … geocaching shares many aspects with benchmarking, trigpointing, orienteering, treasure-hunting, letterboxing, and waymarking … see this article on wikipedia for more details …
