Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which the participants use a GPS receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called “geocaches” or “caches”). A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook. Larger containers can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaching is most often described as a “game of high-tech hide and seek,” sharing many aspects with orienteering and treasure-hunting.
Geocaching.com is the most popular site for finding caches that are already hidden in your area. A quick search for Roanoke yields over 350 caches, many of which are surprisingly hidden in downtown Roanoke, but the majority of which are spread throughout the region.
