Geocaching What is it?

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, Where participants use a global positioning system (GPS) or a mobile device to hide and seek containers, Called geocaches or caches at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world, The most common geocache you will find is usually a small waterproof container containing a logbook and sometimes a pen or pencil.

Once you have found the cache you will need to enter the date you found it and your name or a code name you may have with a friend, This is in order to prove that you actually found it and have logged into the specific location of the cache.

After logging the geocache you will need to put it back exactly where you found it so that fellow participants will be able to find it in the future, Larger geocache containers may even contain small toys or trinkets which show the persons personality, So it is usually a good idea to have something like that with you so that you can leave your own personal stamp on the cache.

Geocaching requires a lot of skills which include bench-marking,orienteering,treasure hunting and way-marking, It has also been known to improve your personal map skills and ability to figure out directions, Here at G4B we personally think that if you have not tried it before you really should give geocaching a try, It is best to do it with a group of friends or even just one other friend, You can even share your geocaching adventures with us on our facebook or twitter pages, Thank you for taking the time to read this blog from Scott at G4B.
