Geocaching is an outdoor game where you use a hand-held GPS device to locate
little containers hidden in parks, bike trails,

The GPS will get you to within about 8 feet of the actual location, so you have

detecting is another outdoor hobby. Here you use a detector to find coins,
jewelry, and historic relics. The modern
detector lets you know what's in the ground before you dig it up. This saves a
lot of time - - you only dig up the valuable finds.
