If you have never heard of Geochaching, get ready for excitement! Because this trend is not just something for well-known computer specialists. Geocaching can be called a modern treasure hunt. A lot of geocaching accessories are not necessary. The directions take place in the form of GPS coordinates, instead of exact directions. With a GPS device or an app on your smartphone the participants are led to the treasure. This consists of a box or a bucket, in which all sorts of things are hidden. If you find the treasure, take a part out and put in something new, so that the goal can always be found again and again by adventurous hikers.
