If you want to join a treasure hunt, go “Geocaching” with your smart phone or GPS device. A Geocache is a container (for the treasure) which varies in size from a matchstick to a packet of cornflakes. A cache can be hidden in the strangest places, depending on the degree of difficulty, and these elements are what make geocaching so captivating. Try www.geocaching.com.
