Geocaching. Anyone Geocache?

A lot of my continental friends love this and seems to be becoming popular though its been about for nearly 2 decades. It's basically treasure hunting with a GPS (on your phone) and it seems to have a huge community even in Ireland. You basically find the "cache", log your find and replace the cache with an equal or better item which are usually but not always small. Caches are in cities, parks, forests, streets so you don't have to go out of your way to play. I want to give it a go and see if I like it.

Has anyone Geocached and what did you think of it?

I don't have a number of how many people geocache around the world but the main website has members in 200 countries apparently. The Irish website is in existence since 2003. A quick look at how many caches are in Cork has about 190 caches to find so it seems pretty popular.

"My continental friends". Yes darling. Eithne is that you?

This sounds like a prehistoric version of Pokemon Go, that lovely game that's currently getting people assaulted and even one killed.

The bodies are piling up on the streets already

In that geocache yolk when you find whatever it is you are supposed to put it back for the next person. Loads of cunts won't do that and the game will be ruined for everyone and the tears will start.

I don't know how to play Pokeman go and yes, European friends as I don't know anyone or heard of anyone I know geocaching in Ireland or the UK.

I think it's more related to treasure hunting with maps and compasses which evolved with the advent of gps and becoming popular with smart phones than a kids card game based on a Japanese cartoon.

Most of the caches are micro caches such as a magnet, you just find it and log it into your app/account. The bigger caches are more rural and complicated it seems and I'm sure some assholes ruin them but maybe the original person is in charge of their cache? I dunno

I'll try it at the weekend.

I took part in a bit of this due to a meetup group 'random' Thursday activity type thing about 4 years ago - it was pretty fun actually.

Example of some of the geocaching points around Dublin:
