Hello fellow SF-O members and guests alike. Well this particular topic consists of the sport called Geocaching. "what is it" some may ask, well Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Now I am aware that the geocaching players range is estimated 3-4 million because some people cache under a team account and may not be registered. It also includes the 347 personalities that are listed as "bittsen", but im wondering how many of you guys do this. you can post if you liked it or not, post how many you have found, mabey even post some good tips and hints on where to find some for others to read.

Geo caching has been pretty fun for the times that I have gone. I usually run an app on my smartphone to pinpoint the GPS locations, sometimes the cache owner will require you to solve a puzzle or quiz before they give you the coordinates to the actual location of the Geo cache.

I've done this before and it was pretty fun. Unfortunately, I no longer live in a location that is very conducive to geocaching. I'd certainly do it again given the chance. :­D

I've never even heard of this. D:

But I feel like I've missed out on a lot of fun.

So yeah, I checked out geocaching.com and it's apparently still a big deal. Coolio. Since I'm in the city, there's plenty of caches in my area too.

Time to go treasure hunting :D

yeah! be warned, they are camouflage and some are small so they may be hard to find, ive found only one because i just started. and that one was hard! but what gave it away was it was next to a discarded chip bag XD

@ xort and im glad you think so Xort! have fun! and btw they do it all year round! so imagine doing this in the snow XD

@ red yeah it really is fun! i have a website that gives you coordinates of a location of where a geocach would be found. if any of you are interested: http://www.geocaching.com/ it requires you to make an account, then you sign your username on the paper inside of the geocach! hope to have you part of the geocaching community redeemer! and thank my friend mindy for informing me of this wonderful game! besides, it's her B-day! and dont be sad! they do it all over the world! so they might do it in your community as well!
