GETTING STARTED WITH GEOCACHING

Geocaching (pronounced geo-caching) is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocacher can place a geocache anywhere in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS technology, and then share the geocache’s existence and location online. Anyone with a GPS device can then try to locate the geocache.

Geocaching Website

The Geocaching website contains a side heading called Hide and Seek a Cache. Clicking on this heading will take you to a page where you can instantly start a search for geocaches near you.

Unfortunately, this activity requires the accompaniment of a GPS device, since the website gives you the coordinates and map of where to find the geocache.A membership is required to complete most searches on this website. To become a member, you may sign up on the website as well.
