Intentionally or not!<br /> <br />What is this hidden container sitting here for? <br /> <br />It is part of a worldwide game dedicated to GPS (Global Positioning System) users, called Geocaching. The game basically involves a GPS user hiding &quot;treasure&quot; (this container and its contents), and publishing the exact coordinates so other GPS users can come on a &quot;treasure hunt&quot; to find it. The only rules are: if you take something from the cache, you must leave something for the cache, and you must write about your visit in the logbook.<br /> <br />IF YOU FOUND THIS CONTAINER BY ACCIDENT:<br /> <br />Great! You are welcome to join us! We ask only that you:<br /> <br /><ul><li>Please do not move or vandalize the container.
    81. 81. If you wish, go ahead and take something. But please also leave something of your own for others to find, and write it in the logbook.</li></ul>Interested in more information? Go to the website below:<br />  <br />http://www.geocaching.com<br /> <br />If this container needs to be removed for any reason, please let us know. <br />We apologize, and will be happy to move it.<br />
