If the coordinates N 44 17.849 W 103 48.471 mean anything to you, then you’re probably into geocaching. Using your Global Positioning Device and a published longitude and latitude, you try to locate a treasure, or cache, which someone has hidden at those coordinates. Some global positioning systems (GPS) will get you within five feet of the hiding spot. The cache is usually a small box with a little logbook inside, along with small trinkets left behind by previous finders. Protocol is that you take one souvenir, and replace it with one of your own.

It’s basically a modern-day treasure hunt. It’s also a great way to explore different and sometimes lesser known areas, utilizing modern technology.
