What is GoGeocaching.com about?
Geocaching is a global treasure
hunt game Geocaching is a
location based game where
typically a container such as a
pill bottle, or rubermaid storage
container is placed somewhere
on the planet and coordinates
are published. Other geocachers
then use those coordinates to
navigate to the location and sign
a log sheet to prove they were
there.  There are many
variations on the game; some
geocaches require solving a
puzzle in order to learn what the
coordinates are, others use web
cams, or other high tech
functions of a GPS or Smart
Phone in order to find the hidden
treasure.

Over the years since the military
satellites were unlocked and
made available for public use
many location based games
have been created. More have
come and gone while
geocaching appears to be here
to stay.

The latest location based game
is Pokemon Go which is wildly
popular, it came into being off an
app called Ingress which is also
still being played by many avid
location based game addicts.
