Geocaching 101

Presented at Notacon 8 (2011), April 16, 2011, 11:30 a.m. (30 minutes)

Geocaching is a high-tech game of hide & seek wherein those that hide provide coordinates and then those that find sign the log and trade swag. There are over 1.3 million caches present in the world and over 5 million active users on the website. Using either a GPS or Smart Phone, you have the ability to download caches and set out for a day of fun and likely frustration in trying to find an assortment of caches ranging in size. From no bigger than a fingernail to a full size ammocan and can be made from just about anything with others looking like fence posts or even rocks to blend in with their surroundings but they have one thing in common, a log book.
