What is geocaching? A fun sport created by Mike Teague where you use your GPS device or smart phone with GPS application to locate hidden caches. These caches often include a stamp and a log book so that you can record the fact that you were there, and may have small objects for you to take in exchange for leaving one.

More resources on geocaching include:

The Essential Guide to Geocaching: Tracking Treasure with Your GPS, Mike Dyer

The Joy of Geocaching: How to Find Health, Happiness, and Creative Energy Through a Worldwide Treasure Hunt, Paul Gillin

REI has a good article on how to geocache, the history of geocaching, geocaching etiquette, and FAQs here.

Happy hunting! We hope to see you at the library soon!
