What is Geocaching?

Essentially, geocaching is a “treasure” hunt using a handheld GPSr unit. One geocacher, called the cache owner, hides a geocache. This is often along a trail, a nice area to hike, near a scenic vista, or other location of interest. Thus, natural areas, such as the Westmoreland Conservancy's reserves, are popular locations to hide and hunt a geocache. After the cache owner has hidden his cache, he posts the coordinates online. Others may then return to the same location seeking the geocache. At the same time, these people are introduced to the wonders of a new area, often one in close proximity to where they live!
