Technology can be more than just practical—it can also be fun. And fun is exactly what you’ll have when you try geocaching. It’s a high-tech treasure-seeking game that uses the Global Positioning System (GPS).

Because geocaching combines the outdoors, puzzles, and adventure, everyone—from kids to kayakers, and retirees to rock climbers—can easily become involved. You’ll join a rapidly expanding worldwide network of people who hide containers of “prizes” in the wilderness, suburbs, and even in the middle of cities, then provide clues for others to discover them.

Borrowing from the classic pursuits of orienteering and letterboxing, geocaching can be as easy as a walk in the park or as challenging as scuba diving to a hundred feet. You don’t need to be an expert in electronics, navigation, or even hiking to start. With this book, you’ll soon understand GPS technology, know how to find your way about, and be able to prepare for your next hike-and-seek adventure!
