What is Geocaching?

“Geocaching” is the worldwide outdoor GPS treasure hunt in which participants follow coordinates to find hidden “caches” anywhere in the world.

A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook as well as other personal or sentimental items other Geocachers have chosen to share.

The rules are simple: Find the Cache, Record your find in the logbook, return the cache to its original position and head off to find some more.

If you chose to “trade” something from the cache you must remove the small item you wish to keep and replace it with another similarly small item.

Getting Started

The only necessities are a GPS device or a GPS-enabled mobile phone so that you can navigate to the cache, and a Free Geocache.com Basic Membership

At its simplest level, geocaching requires these 8 steps:

  1. Register for a free Basic Membership on the world wide geocaching website
  2. Visit the Hide & Seek a Cache page.
  3. Enter your postal code and click “search.”
  4. Choose any geocache from the list and click on its name.
  5. Enter the coordinates of the geocache into your GPS Device.
  6. Use your GPS device to assist you in finding the hidden geocache.
  7. Sign the logbook and return the geocache to its original location.
  8. Share your geocaching stories and photos online.
