So, I've heard of this Geocaching thing. And for the first time in my life I feel like an old man who has to ask the kids what that new fangled thing is, long after it has become old fangled.

It seems like something I should know how to do. What is it, how does it work, and every so often I find these little containers while out exploring with a log book and little knick knacks tucked way back in the most random placed.

Elucidate para mi por favor.

People hide objects or caches and provide clues (or straight-up coordinates) for how to find them. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=geocaching

But I've also heard of Geocaching being used simply as informal databases of Points of Interest?

Is that the same thing or no?

I have always done it where you have to find a small box or whatnot and you can take something out of it as long as you put something back. They usually have gum ball machine sort of things inside. Sometimes a note pad to make notes.

I've found several, although I don't look for them. They have been in some pretty neat places I was going to go, anyway. Seems like fun. Found one in a small cave in Hercules Glade. So maybe they are a way to find cool places.
