I must admit that geocaching strikes me the same way that sailboat racing did when I first saw it from shore: "Why on earth would anyone want to spend their time doing that?"

I like the woods, I can run bearings...but geocaching? Enter location, follow bearing, find ten-foot position circle...and now what? Rummage around in the leaves and bushes to see what someone stowed there? As if I'm a DEA agent doing a drug search?

Eh, na, just has no appeal to me. I'd rather keep hiking. Geocaching, like golf, just doesn't grab me. Aimless hiking and meandering, much more to my liking. (G)
