Geocaching

OPB | Feb. 4, 2010 12:30 p.m.

Tag along with an Oregon family as they go Geocaching - a game that was born in Oregon and has swept the globe. Using hand held GPS devices players scour the countryside in search hidden treasure. Sometimes hidden in a cave or under a rock these caches contain a log book and some sort of trinket. Players sometimes leave a trinket of their own, if they take what they find, but the real reward is in the hunt for more and more hidden caches.
