Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunt where the participants uses GPS to hide and locate different containers all over the world. As geocacher you hide a container containing a pencil, a small notebook and a small object. Afterwards you upload the coordinates for you object through GPS which makes the object accessible for other geocachers.
When others find your cache, they will take notes in the small notebook and they can put a new object in the container for other finders.
Typical caches are not object of high value but something that can generate value for the finder.
