Publisher Comments:

Geocaching is one of the fastest growing outdoor sports of the millennium, combining aspects of treasure hunting, high-tech navigation, and exploration. To get started all you have to do is select a local cache listing from a geocaching Web site, enter the waypoint or coordinates into your GPS unit, and then plot your route to adventure. The Geocaching™ Handbook is your complete introduction to this fascinating outdoor activity.

Discover how to:

• Select a cache listing and begin your hunt for the treasure

• Buy a GPS receiver and use it to navigate to the cache

• Create and hide your own cache for others to find

• Practice backcountry safety and geocaching etiquette

• Play other geo-games, such as “Are U Nuts?” and “Geodashing”

• Connect with other geocachers through clubs and geo-events

And you’ll learn how the game began - from its creator, Dave Ulmer. This book contains everything you need to know to get started in this fun, family-friendly outdoor pastime.

Book News Annotation:

Armed with a GPS unit and the ability to walk and look around at the same time, most of us can get within a few feet of a treasure. Outdoorsman Ulmer explains the operations, conventions, and etiquette of this new sport, based on the time-honored tradition of the treasure hunt and new technologies of satellite navigational systems. Players hide and seek prizes, operating from clues designed to challenge their back-country skills. The author knows whereof he writes: he admits it pays to pack extra batteries, a map, and a compass just in case.
