"Treasure hunts may bring to mind pirates and hidden caches of jewels, but around May 2000, the phrase took on a whole new meaning. Geocaching is a global treasure hunt with millions of seekers. Participants use GPS enabled devices to track down hidden containers, and log their finds and experiences online."

"It gets you away from TV" Geocaching leaves participants hooked on searching | Sheboygan Press

"It gets you away from TV" Geocaching leaves participants hooked on searching | Sheboygan Press | Augmented Reality Games in Tourism | Scoop.it
But he was also hooked.

These days, the 69-year-old retiree, who bought a GPS unit that same day, ventures out several times a week with his wife, Maryann, in search of any of the more than 8,500 geocaches now hidden throughout Wisconsin.

He's also working to generate interest in geocaching — which Kaczik said is a fancy word for using "billion dollar satellites to find Tupperware in the woods."

"It gets you away from the TV set, and it takes you to places you didn't even know existed," Kaczik said.

New Mass Market Family Entertainment Form? Geocaching Treasure Hunting in Lansdale

New Mass Market Family Entertainment Form? Geocaching Treasure Hunting in Lansdale | Augmented Reality Games in Tourism | Scoop.it

For those who dream of treasure hunts and couldn’t get enough of scavenger hunts as a kid, geocaching is the ultimate game.

Geocaching Basics
“Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices,” according to the geocaching website.

Members of the geocaching network hide a cache somewhere in the world and list its coordinates on the website's “Hide & Seek a Cache” page.

To hide the cache, there are certain rules that participants must abide by.

The number one rule on the website is that all local laws apply, followed by making sure the landowner has given permission to place a cache on public or private property.
