    I tried Geocaching a little while ago, it was great fun. It's like a Treasure/Easter Egg Hunt, and or a video game which breaks the 4th wall. Try it if you have the chance. Good times! :D

    I have a couple of geocache coins (tokens) in my collection, but I've never been geocaching. How does it work?

    Rodders, download the app and then your phone tells you how near you are to a geocache. I'm sure you can google locations and join forums and whatnot too.

    I've been letterboxing on Lundy Island, which is kinda similar, and I've accidentally found geocaches on Dartmoor (but no letterboxes, which is was I was really looking for).

    I'd never heard of this before today, so was surprised to see how old this activity was (160+ years).

    According to Wikipedia, Dartmoor is where letterboxing began:

    Yeah, I keep meaning to do it properly (i.e. start at Cranmere Pool) but just end up having a random look around anywhere and never finding anything.

    I think I will stick to dumpsters and donation boxes, where many good books, clothes, and household appliances are to be found. )
