Geocaching event attractsThe seventh annual Discover Roseburg geocaching event was held recently attracting many enthusiast travellers. For the uninitiated, is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world.

 

About 100 people, including visitors from across Oregon and Washington, some from as far as Seattle, descended upon Roseburg, a city in the U.S. state of Oregon, for the event.

 

The participants were given passports with coordinates of each location. The first five were the sites of traditional caches, in which they discovered hidden treasures and recorded their geocache names in log books.

 

The other 15 sites were virtual caches, where they would find clues to help them fill in the blanks on their passports.

 

Geocachers can choose to take something from the cache and leave something else for other participants to find.
