Walk Like a Geocacher

What is Geocaching?

Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing) is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocacher can place a geocache in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS technology and then share the geocache’s existence and location online. Anyone with a GPS device can then try to locate the geocache.

This clip from the movie Splinterheads is the best explanation I’ve seen so far:

For Those Already in the Geo-Know…

This would be PERFECT for the geocaching theme song! I totally cracked when I saw the  geocacher’s reaction to the “muggles” part (been there done that)! These folks did an OUTSTANDING job on this vid…

or you can look at it as playing pirates with treasure maps like you did when you were a kid. just now it is electronic based. and it’s not just kids playing.
