GEOCACHING EXPLORE YOUR OWN NEIGHBORHOOD

You don´t have to climb mountains to have adventures.You can discover things in your owm backyard with Geocaching! The word Geocaching comes from "geo" ( the Earth) and "cache" (a safe place). So a geocache is something that is hidden somewhere on the Earth.
___________________________________
Geocaching is like a treasure hunt. You hide something (the cache) outdoors and use the GPS receiver to record its coordinates. Then you post the coordinates on a website so people know where too look for the cache. You can add clues, too. With Geocaching you can find out about new places and have fun at the same time!

GPS stands for Global Positioning System. A GPS receiver is like a car satellite navigation system. It uuses 24 satellites that are orbiting the Earth. When you enter the coordinates in your GPS, it works out the location.
