Geocaching, a real-world, treasure hunting game that has devoted followers across the world. The hunters use GPS-enabled devices and navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates using the Internet to find the coordinates. Then the hunters head to the location to find the geocache container hidden at that location. Inside the containers are trinkets and the hunters take one and leave one of their own and sign the log book.
Guidelines are simple: if you take something from the cache, leave something, and don't damage the environment. To find nearby geocaches, enter a zipcode at Geocache Coordinates and the list of treasure spots will give you many Northwest Michigan hunts to locate.
