Taking up the Slack
There may be easy or difficult clues on the website as for old fashioned Treasure Hunts. The idea is that when you find the box, you take one of the pieces of 'treasure' out and place something of your own into the box. There will also be a log-book to record your presence finding the box plus you score your find back on the website. Some of it gets a load more complicated than that and there are even fancy 'geo-coins' with serial numbers which, if you look them up, you can see where they have traveled around the world being found and the re-lost by the geo-cachers. There is quite a community 'out there' now doing this; it's quite a thing. It has really taken off in Germany but not really got going to the same extent in Ireland, so if you have an inkling then get out there, hunt a few caches down, find out what the game is all about, and then plant your own cache and watch the 'traffic' through it.
