Geocaching, as defined by Wikipedia, is an outdoor activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to discover containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world.

There are over 1 million hidden geocaches in the world, just waiting to be found. To start geocaching, just go to the Official Geocaching Website, create a free basic membership, and then click on the “Hide & Seek A Cache” tab. From there, you can look up the nearest caches by entering a zip code, address, or latitude/longitude coordinates. Once you discover a cache you want to find, grab your GPS and head outside!

Geocaching can range from an easy “park and grab”, to a difficult hike or climb. But don’t sweat! Every geocache is rated by difficulty and terrain on the website.

Once you find a geocache container, sign the log book and admire the goodies and trade items that are stashed inside.

The rules are simple:

  • If you take an item from a geocache, please leave something in return for the next geocacher to find
  • Return the geocache to its original hiding place
  • Log your experience at

Here’s a video to sum it all up:

Geocaching is a rewarding experience and is an unusual way to explore your community, discover beautiful scenic views, and travel outdoors. Happy Caching!
