I went with my brother, yesterday and did a little geocaching. For those unfamiliar with geocaching, it is an entertaining game designed for gps users. The basic idea is to have individuals and organizations set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the internet. Participants then use the given location coordinates to find the caches. A cache may provide the finder with some kind of prize for the successful searcher. Usually, some kind of trinket of little value. The hunter is then expected to leave a trinket of his own, for the next participant to find.
On this particular trek we were stashing a new cache, not seeking one out. This one will be entitled 'Blackhoof Hike'. Look for it at Geocaching - The Official Global GPS Cache Hunt Site.
