Welcome to Geocaching

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.

My research proposal for Geocaching.


"Does geocaching violate Leave No Trace?." Backpacker 36.3 (2008): 44. EBSCO MasterFILE Premier. Web. 7 Oct. 2009.
This article addresses a concern that many people have against geocaching in general. “Leave No Trace” principles state that when we go into a wilderness, we leave it as if no human has ever been present. Man y people feel that geocachers violate these principles when we leave a cache in place. Geocachers counter stating that the caches are only temporary and that we “Pack Out” tons of trash each year from public lands. The debate continues.
