Home Hobbies Geocaching


Geocaching is outdoor activity, which goal is searching the containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", by means of GPS. The caches are hidden anywhere in the world.

To play this game, at first you must register on the official website of Geocaching. When you've got an account you can check a map of your town, country and see, if in your area are the caches. If you choose one, you must check the geographic coordinates of a cache. Then take your phone with GPS and go to this place.

The cache may be everywhere: in a city, in a forest, near to a church, in an old castle, on a ski station, in a tram etc. Even on Antarctica are some! Often they are amazing places. When you stay where GPS shows, the fun begins. GPS only indicates a general position of a cache. Now you have to find the cache. Always on the web are some descriptions how to find it. Often there are the prompts too. To find the cache you must sometimes solve the puzzle. When you find the cache you can open it and pull out a content. Usually inside a cache are: a logbook with a pencil or a pen and small gifts, which you can take as a reward. To be fair you should give something back. In a logbook you can write your nick from the web and a date. After that you have to hide the cache again.

When you have got a geocaching account on the web you can make your own caches too. Geocaching is funny hobby, because you can play it everywhere you are. The only things you need are some willingness and the phone with GPS. Where there's a will, there's a way.
