New gadget for geocaching – Its Hotz Outside - Wilmington Star News - Wilmington, NC - Archive: "If you don’t remember, geocaching goes something like this: Someone goes out into a field, clump of woods or other hard-to-find area and buries or hides a container of something. The “stuff” could be anything from key chains to a journal. That person then goes on-line and posts the GPS coordinates. Other people log on, write down the coordinates and then go off on an adventure to try to find the container."
