Hello and howdy, I'm creating this thread because I've gotten one heck of a new hobby, Geocaching.  Initially begun in may of 2000 Geocaching is basically a treasure hunt where you get a set of geographical coordinates and search that spot for a hidden cache.  Often this contains a log and small nicknacks and doodads left there by other people, often termed SWAG or stuff we all get by the community.

I started this a few months ago and have been having fun ever since!  Some of the stuff I've found include pink golf balls, a pet rock, a few toy dinosaurs, but the big ones are the really old caches I've found such as this one dating back to 2006

Inside among other things were a love letter to someone, a few SWAG items, and a pair of tickets to a country concert from 2010 as well as the log which my Geocaching partner and I signed of course.

the cache was across the reservoir from here and the jeep made getting there easy!

Often they're a few different kinds, as of late I've been finding camouflaged containers like this one.

or this one here which was magnetic and attached to the underside of a power box.

the biggest one I've found so far however was this one which looks like an old tackle box or ammo can sized/type container.

So has anyone else tried geocaching before?

I'm going to go out when I'm not working and take a picture of this cool lamppost geocache I found, update this post with pics in a couple days.

it's a blank outlet cover magnetically attached to the side of the light pole, never imagined I'd encounter one given most in the area are containers of some sort.
