Geocaching in Neath Port Talbot
Geocaching (pronounced Geo-cashing) is a modern day
treasure hunt, anyone with a GPS device can play. The idea of the
game is for the geocacher (hider) to place a geocache or cache as
they a commonly known (treasure) anywhere in the world, the
‘geocacher’ then pinpoints its location using the GPS system and
uploads the co-ordinates on the geocaching website.
You (the seeker) can search the site for cache co-ordinates
at any location you want, you then type the co-ordinates into the
GPS device, and your all set. The usual contents for a cache
would be a log book, for you to write in and a number of treasures,
remember if you take something out you must put something back.
