" I Use A Multi-Billion Dollar Military Satellite System To Find Tupperware In The Woods"
What Do You Do? Source unknown
Geocaching is a game that combines the use of a handheld GPS receiver, the Internet and the great outdoors. I wrote a story about the game and it can be found HERE.
How the Game is played:
A person hides a container. At a minimum the container should include a log book to record finds. This person then posts its location, in latitude and longitude, at Geocaching.com.
Another person, such as myself, inputs the location of the cache into a GPS receiver and attempts to find it.
If the cache is found, a note of it's finding is entered into the log book.
If other trade items are found in the cache, " If you take something then leave something", rule applies.
There are many other variations to the game but these are the basics.
The rules for the game are simple:
Take something from the cache
Leave something in the cache
Write about it in the logbook
My wife Sonja, My dog Molly and I make up a Geocaching team we call "Team Trail Walker". After playing the game of Geocaching for the last few years I can safely say "it's addicting". I don't feel compelled by the numbers like some are, but I do feel the need to find Tupperware in the woods on occasion. I personally don't care to find the small city "Micro" (film canister size or smaller) Geocaches or even the urban "park and grabs" (no hiking involved) unless it's located in a nice city park or a town I've not visited before. My favorite Geocaches are the ones that require a little extra effort to hike to, and a little extra effort to find. I also enjoy a puzzle cache now and then if they aren't too complicated. I'll explain it this way. My first love is hiking with Molly and if I can add to that the adventure of finding a Geocache then I'm one happy camper.
