Geocaching is the outdoor activity of finding hidden items with the aid of GPS. Geocachers hide small boxes containing some treasures and a log book to record your find. You can add your own treasure and then return the box to its hiding place for others to find. I like the idea of having a purpose when exploring outdoors, the geekiness of getting familiar with GPS systems, and the thrill of the hunt without killing anything.
While the book was written when one had to use a dedicated GPS device which today might be integrated with our phone, it still had plenty of useful hints and tips on geocaching. Now I just need to get out and do it!
