Amazon Starts Geocaching Page


It looks like Amazon has created a new Amazon Geocaching Page with general information regarding geocaching.They have posted information on exactly what geocaching is, how it works, picking a GPS unit, finding caches, and geocaching responsibility.

It appears that the page is sponsored by Garmin as there are numerous references to Garmin and all of the accompanying GPS units are Garmin GPS receivers.

Basically, geocaching is a high-tech version of treasure hunting. Geocachers seek out hidden treasures utilizing GPS coordinates posted on the Internet by those hiding the cache. Using a Garmin GPS unit, they then trek out into the backwoods or urban jungles to find the hiding spot of the cache. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. If the visitor takes something out of the cache, they are asked to leave something in return. For some, the biggest reward is the thrill of the search and the discovery of a place that they have never been.
