Geocaching

Geocaching

Join the fun with Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing) -  a world-wide outdoor hide-and-seek game with more than 5 million players who use Global Positioning System coordinates to lead them to caches. The caches are containers that hold a visitor logbook so the "finders" can add their names to the list of those who have successfully located it. These containers may also include trinkets to trade, "travel bugs" which are then moved on by the finders to other cache locations, or commemorative geocaching token coins.

Geocaching takes place all over the world - there are more than 1.7 million caches worldwide.  Plugging in a zip code from any Green County community on the website will take you to caches in the area.
