Geocaching is 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 (usually a
tupperware or ammo box) containing a logbook and "treasure,"
usually toys or trinkets of little value.
Geocaches are currently placed in over 100 countries around the
world and on all seven continents, including Antarctica. Learn more
