What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is a sport for all age groups and all abilities. Basically, individuals and/or organizations, using hand held GPS (Global Positioning System) receivers, set up geocaches and post the latitude and longitude of the location of the geocaches on the internet. GPS users can then use the coordinates to find the geocaches. When you find a geocache, take something from the container, leave something you’ve brought with you, sign the logbook, and then return the container to it’s hiding spot for the next finder.
