Geocaching is an outdoor sporting activity in which the participants use a (GPS)global positioning system recever or mobile device and other techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproff container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (tupperware or similar) or ammo boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaching is often described as a “game of high-tech hide and seek,” sharing many aspects with benchmarking, trigpointing, orienteering, treasure-hunting, letterboxing, and waymarking.
