What is Geocaching?
Basically, someone hides a container (with or without "treasure" depending on size). They then mark the hiding place's coordinates with a GPS and post them online for the geocache hunter to upload. The hunter then attempts to find the hidden cache!
All caches regardless of size will contain a log book for you to document having found it. Larger caches may contain trinkets & tradeable items. The idea is to take a trinket that someone else left and replace it with one of your own.
Normally, once a cache is hidden, the coordinates will be logged on the official Geocaching website. For the time being, GVSU's geocache coordinates will remain here on our website only.
For a more full description of Geocaching and all the possibilities you may visit the official geocaching website at www.geocaching.com. Information about geocaching will be readily available however, some information will require you to create a free account to view.
Don't have a GPS?
