    16. 16. Geocaching • Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device to hide and seek containers, called geocaches” or “caches” anywhere in the world. • A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. After signing into the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (Tupperware or similar) or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value.
    17. 17. Geocaching Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. http://www.geocaching.com/
