  • 1. What is Geocaching? Author Steve Jurvetson
  • 2. The Name - Geocache Pronounced "gee-oh-kash“  Geocaching comes from the terms 'geo' (earth, geography)  ‘Caching' (the hiding of a cache).  If you ‘Goggled’ it you would find many different versions of the meaning but they all mean the same thing . . . .
  • 3. Introduction Geocaching is an outdoor activity using a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver Participants hide and seek containers, called “Geocaches" or “Caches", anywhere in the world. A typical Cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook. Some call it a sport, some a hobby, and some even other things.  It’s a great family activity that gets you outdoors to see things that you never thought you would see.
  • 4. User: BDK Important Information Caches can be located in the wilderness or in a public venue, typically not in plain view for all to see. The GPS coordinates of the Cache are published on the Geocaching website. The aim is to locate the Cache, enter your name in the log book, as well as move objects from one Cache to the next. Geocachers share their experiences online. As of mid-2008, there were more than 600,000 Geocaches around the world!
