Traveling around this big, open country of ours I’m always running into new ideas and activities. Geocaching was a new one that I found in Elko, NV during my recent visit. Geocaching is an outdoor adventure that is like a high-tech, modern day treasure hunt.

Individuals set up or hide caches all over the world and when I clicked upon a map of the area from the geocaching website I saw dozens of caches in Elko County, NV. A geocacher uses a GPS unit and hikes off in search of caches out in the country. When they find a cache they log their findings into the logbook at the cache and also log onto the website to indicate what they found there and the condition of the cache.

Will geocaching catch on?
