"Getting Started with Geocaching
Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing) is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocacher can place a geocache in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS technology and then share the geocache's existence and location online. Anyone with a GPS device can then try to locate the geocache.

We (okay, mostly Steph) have been out several times to enjoy the local area in a different way--and have discover some interesting bits of history we did not know were so close and in some case nearly right under our noses! There is also a site where you can post waymarks, "Waymarking is a way to mark unique locations on the planet and give them a voice. While GPS technology allows us to pinpoint any location on the planet, mark the location, and share it with others, Waymarking is the toolset for categorizing and adding unique information for that location" called waymarking.com where the Albert Shafsky House B&B is listed. Try it next time you visit a new place or just want to see things in a different way in your own home town.
