The sport where you are the search engine®
There's a wealth of information available. Important links:
What is it, you ask? Basically it's a worldwide recreational activity
enjoyed by GPS (Global Positioning System) users. It involves a GPS user
hiding a "cache" (usually a
waterproof container of trinkets) and posting the exact coordinates so
other GPS users can come on a
"scavenger hunt" to find it. There are caches of all kinds for all ages
and are usually placed in interesting
locations that people may not know about. When you find one, sign the log,
and trade any trinket you like with one of your own to keep the cache
There are other twists with Travel Bugs
multi-caches etc to add to the fun.
As our signature item, we'll leave a folding cube as a FTF (first to find)
prize in the caches we place.
Occasionally, we place one in a suitably excellent cache we visit.
Ok, enough of the sales pitch, and on with the Hyland caches.
