GeneWEB! The Geocache Page
Welcome to The GeneWEB! Geocache Page. What is a geocache, you ask? Well, you came to the right place to find out.|
First you must learn the correct pronounciation. We say 'geo' for Earth, and 'cache', pronounced 'cash', for a hidden collection.
A geocache is the modern day equivalent of finding buried treasure. Back in the days of sailing ships, pirates kept a map marked with a letter 'X' to mark the spot where they hid their booty.
Today, using Global Positioning System satellites and handheld GPS receivers, we can accurately mark the spot where we hid our cache. The cache these days can be anything from a wonderful scenic view to money! The usual cache is a plastic container filled with small trinkets or collectibles. You will find a log book where you write the details of your visit, and bring an item you can swap with the cache.
Samantha and I pursue this activity because it takes us to places we'd otherwise pass by. We love to explore together. We get to walk and see sights we've never seen and visit interesting places. On the Geocache website and on the trail we are known as 'Team Hunter'.
Here are the caches we've hidden:
