Come again? Geo-what? Geocaching!
Have you ever heard of GeoCaching? It is a high-tech treasure hunt where "Caches" are hidden and participants try to find them using Global Positioning Satellite Receivers (GPSR). Once found, the "cacher" logs his or her find on the Web Site www.geocaching.com , which is the de-facto global home-base for GeoCaching. This (sport? game? hobby?) is a lot of fun and a great solo or family pastime.
