Geocaching Handbook


The Geocaching Handbook is a complete introduction to the fast-growing sport of geocaching. It includes a history of geocaching; instructions on creating a cache, hiding it, and sharing it with others; geocaching etiquette and conventions; basic land navigation techniques including using a GPS unit; basic backcountry safety and etiquette; where to look and where to hide; types of treasures; and everything aspiring geocachers need to get started in this fascinating, family-friendly, high-tech outdoor-oriented pastime. On May 1, 2000, the White House announced that it would "stop the intentional degradation of the GPS signal available to the public beginning at midnight tonight. This will mean that civilian users of GPS will be able to pinpoint locations up to 10 times more accurately than they do now." As history was being made, self-professed techno-geeks like Dave Ulmer, an electronic and software engineer from Portland, Oregon, followed the announcements.
