Geocaching is a global high-tech sport which uses GPS units and iPhones. The object of the game is to find a cache which is hidden anywhere. It can be hidden in a building, a forest, or on a street. When a cache is found and opened, you will see objects or “treasures” and a log book. The finder must log into the book and can take things stored there but must add items to replace them. On Saturday, June 8, 2013, starting at 10:30 A.M., Kapolei Public Library will host two popular geocaching experts, Roland and Sheree Lee, whose online names are GeoGerms and 808Ladybug. They will explain how to play the game, what equipment you need, and tips and secrets for success.
Examples of geocaching equipment, containers, collectibles, and other entertaining objects will be on display in the second floor glass case starting in mid-May. A convenient geocasing device is your own smart phone for which a free app is available. If you want to learn more about it before you attend the presentation, visit the website at geocaching.com. Registration is not required to attend.
