Geocaching is a recreational activity that combines technology with the enjoyment of the outdoors. Using a Global Positioning System (GPS), Geocachers place a container (Geocache) in a hidden location and mark the position with their GPS. The coordinates of these Geocaches are posted on the Geocaching websites. With the aid of these websites, other Geocachers enter the coordinates into their GPS and seek the prize. When found, the logbook is signed and an exchange of items takes place. The Geocache is then replaced to its original hiding spot and gets logged online.
What are the rules in Geocaching?
- Take something from the cache
- Leave something in the cache
