This year marks the 20th anniversary of geocaching. I became seriously into geocaching in 2007 after I purchased my first handheld GPS.
Geocaching is best described as a high-tech treasure hunt using a handheld GPS unit and GPS coordinates found at www.geocaching.com to both hide and find hidden containers called geocaches. It is a social hobby that relies on the community to hide and find these containers, which vary as much as the people who play the game. The geocache container holds a log sheet and is camouflaged enough to blend in with its surroundings. Some geocaches are large enough to allow for trade items such as small toys for kids. The idea is to find the geocache, sign the paper log sheet, take something from the container and leave something for the next person to find.
