There is a geocache hidden in Bonaire. Has anyone on BT looked for or found it? For those of you that don't know, geocaching is looking for hidden 'caches' using a GPS device. These caches are hidden thoughout the world. I have been doing it for about six months now and it's a fun way to get to know new and interesting locations. When I am in Bonaire latter this month I plan on finding the one hidden in Bonaire and leaving a 'travel bug' that I picked up from a local cache. A travel bug is an item that is trying to get from one place to another and is logged on the geocache website at each location it stops at. For more info check out www.geocaching.com.

Interesting Dennis. Reminds me of when I was an archaeologist and had to find datum points and coordinate our finds with a Brunton compass....GPS devices would have made that a lot easier!

Along the north boundary of the salt flats from the words on site.

Nifty -- sort of like letterboxing or orienteering, it appears...

I do love this board! Once again I learned something new - no 2 new somethings. I've never heard of either the geocache thing or letterboxing; checked out both on the web. They both sound like fun activities - thanks for increasing my knowledge of people & the world we live in.
