New to Geocaching?
Geocaching is a modern day, outdoor hi-tech treasure hunt where you use a specific set of GPS coordinates and clues to locate a geocache (container) hidden at a secret location. The coordinates for each hidden geocache are listed on Geocaching.com.

Once a geocache is located, you sign the log book inside the container and report that you found it on Geocaching.com. The geocache must be returned to its hiding spot when you’re finished for additional geocachers to discover.
