What is it?
Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunt using a GPS- enabled device to find a cache. A cache is a hidden object or a container placed at a specific location marked by coordinates. Geocaches can range in size from smaller than a pencil eraser to larger than a 5-gallon bucket. Many are camouflaged or disguised to be hidden in plain sight.

What happens when I find a cache?
Once you find the cache, you enter your name and date into the logbook. Some of the caches will have objects you can take as a prize, usually, you would take one and leave something of equal value for the next finder like a keychain, small toy, or buttons.
