Is some thing I have been reading about and would like to try, I think it would be great fun.
“Geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for GPS users. Participating in a cache hunt is a good way to take advantage of the wonderful features and capability of a GPS unit. The basic idea is to have individuals and organizations set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the Internet. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. All the visitor is asked to do is if they get something they should try to leave something for the cache.”
Its quite a new thing ,only starting in MayÂ 2000, you can read about its History here
The rules are simple.
1.Take some thing from the cache
2 Leave some thing in the cache
3. Write about it in the log book.
You can also hide a cache for others to find.
It would be a great way to get children out walking.
Here hopingÂ I get out soon to find my first geocache, andÂ this is the one I want to do
