Geocaching

What is geocaching? Someone hides somewhere a waterproof box, containing a log book and some objects. With a hand-GPS, he determines the precise coordinates of the shelter. He then publishes it on the Internet: www.geocaching.com. Other people note from this website that coordinates and can then look for the "cache" (treasure). If they find him, they write their findings about the trip in the log book and are allowed to take an object out of the box, but they also have to put in another one. The nice thing is that whoever hid the treasure introduces you to beautiful places, nature reserves, sights, which you might otherwise never discover. There are also a number of "treasures" near the campsite. More info:  www.geocaching.com.
