Wikipedia.org is your friend.

It's been around for years and looks like it could be fun. I've not tried it, personally, but it could be a good side-activity to riding.

Never tried it but I have seen a travelling stuffed animal on a bike that was part of a geocaching thing. I looked into it when I got my first GPS. It looks like fun. I also went to a resturant where a big group of cachers were meeting for some reason. Caching from what I read about could get some police on your due to the Department of Homeland Security issue. If they see you snooping around somewhere looking for the logbook and such in weird places, you could be asking for it.

My dad got really into it like 4 or 5 years ago. Had the whole GPS unit on his Goldwing. When we got older it was really boring. Its a great family thing to do with little kids, because they get dirty and get to run around in the woods.

Naw, I got thicker skin than that.

Scoot's right... it was big a few years ago and, interstingly enough, it was the younger crews who were more into it. I thought it was too squidly! LOL
