Pyrorocketeer Posted December 30, 2007 Share Posted December 30, 2007 Just curious if anyone on here is a geocacher? My brothers friends and I recently stumbled upon a site that was talking about it, so we went out and tried it. For those who don't know what it is, its basically.... an outdoor treasure-hunting game in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called "geocaches" or "caches") anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and "treasure," usually toys or trinkets of little value. Today, well over 480,000 geocaches are registered on various websites devoted to the sport. Geocaches are currently placed in over 100 countries around the world and on all seven continents, including Antarctica. we found 3 caches last night, and it was pretty fun. Wandering around at 3 am with nothing but a flashlight, and a gps in the woods looking for a hidden box lol. There are about 600 within a 30 mile raidus of my place, and I think we are gonna go out looking for some in the city today. anyways, I was just curious if anyone has heard of it, or is a cacher themselves.
