Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, a type of paper chase. The coordinates of the place, where the "cache" is hidden, can be found on the internet. The geocachers use a Global Positioning System[1] (GPS) receiver or mobile device like Android-iPhone and other navigational techniques like compass to play "hide and seek" for buried or hidden containers called "geocaches" or "caches". These can be hidden anywhere in the world. A Geocache is a waterproof container, that contains a logbook to keep track of those who found the cache.

This hobby was founded by Dave Ulmer in 2000.[2]

Survivalist and preppers often practice geocaching as a way of pre-storing guns and other "preps"/supplies along a bugout towards their survivalist retreat.
