So... what is Geocaching?
We're glad you asked. Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played by adventure seekers using GPS devices or smartphones. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, and share the experience online.
Geocaches can be found anywhere. They can be as small as your fingernail or as big as a toolbox. It's an amazing way to discover places you've never been before.
