GEOCACHING

Geocaching has become a favorite pass time for families, hikers, ATV riders…almost anyone who enjoy the outdoors and love a little adventure, and have a GPS device. This is a world wide adventure game that has hit the internet.

You can go to this site www.geocaching.com and put in a zip code of an area you want to visit and it will give you the GPS location of any number of caches available in that area. You may find a treasure, (this could be a CD, a map, jewelry, software, tools and on and on) or maybe just learn something new as a standard in a cache is the log book which you can read and see who else found this spot. Remember though, if you take something, its only fair for you to leave something in return.

Honestly, I was surprised to find how many are in the Jackman region although I am not sure why I was. This is fantastic spot to search for treasures using a gps. This address will take you directly to the Jackman caches available. www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.aspx?zip=04945&x=4&y=7

GEO- is for geography and CACHE is a term which can be used in hiking/camping as a “”hiding place for concealing and preserving provisions””.

They also list 3 basic rules to geocaching
