Let's Go Geocaching!
Patch takes a look at the global GPS scavenger hunt!
This week, Verona-Cedar Grove Patch editor Chris Nesi and Patch intern Mike Madden took to the woods and streets in search of geocaches in the area.
To those that don't know, geocaching is a world-wide Global Positioning System (GPS) scavenger hunt in which people hide containers containing a logbook and other assorted items, and post the coordinates to a website, like geocaching.com. Geocachers then find the coordinates on the website, input them into a GPS unit and hit the road in search of the box.
Once found, the logbook is signed, and if desired, items exchanged.
The two geocaches found in this video are in Verona and Cedar Grove, but there are hundreds if not thousands more hidden in the surrounding area. For additional information how you can start finding geocaches of your own, visit geocaching.com.
