Modern Day Treasure Hunt

Geocaching has become very popular inNew Jersey. Participants use their smartphones and/or portable GPS devices to navigate to a specific set of coordinates in hopes of finding “caches”- small, weather-proof containers containing a logbook and, often, toys or inexpensive trinkets. If successful in their hunt, geocachers have the opportunity to trade knickknacks and log their visit.

Clues and coordinates for would-be-finders are posted on geocaching Web portals such as Geocaching.com and Terracaching.com. These sites serve as hubs for finding or listing cache locations, as well as for sharing geocaching stories of both success or failure and posting photos.

There are only a few rules. Private property is off limits. If you opt to take the trinket from the geocache, be sure to leave something of equal or greater value in return. And always return the geocache container to its original location.
