What is geocaching?

Geocaching is initiated by an individual hiding a cache, normally a waterproof container with small items inside, then recording the location with a GPS. The cache may be large or small, hidden in a hollow log, under an object, in the water, etc. but should not be buried. The individual then posts the GPS coordinates along with a description of the cache at Other individuals try to find the cache. When it is located, participants sign a log book, then take or leave a small item. They also post their find on the online logbook.
