GEOCACHING
Geocaching is defined as an outdoor recreational activity, in which the participants use a Global Positioning geocaching  System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world.

A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the "geocacher" enters the date they found it and signs with their established code name.  After signing into the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it.  Larger containers such as plastic storage containers or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value.


Below is a list of known Geocaches located on GLT property, which has been provided by www.geocaching.com
