One of my favorite leisure time activities is geocaching. For those of you in the know, then you already understand and possibly share my obsession. For those of you who are wondering what the hell geocaching is, I'll explain. Geocaching is a globally played sport/game/treasure hunt that people all over the world participate in. The way it works is that someone hides a container, could be Tupperware, tin, metal or whatever else they can come up with, out on the woods or any other outdoor location. The container, or cache, contains at the least a log book in which the people who find it can sign their name to signify that they found it. A larger cache can contain trinkets, or swag, that cachers can trade. Once the cache is hidden, the owner of the cache records the coordinates with a hand held gps and posts them on www.geocaching.com. Anyone with a gps, preferably handheld, can go on the website and get the coordinates and find the cache.
My band, the Bags of Swag, decided to put out a cache as a way to give away free Cd's. We made up a bunch of Cd's and put them in little homemade swag bags that we made. We stuck them into a large ammo can along with a bunch of other swag. We went out to our nearest park and hid it, making sure to take plenty of pictures to document the hunt and to use as backgrounds for a FAB episode. This episode of The Brownfrowns was initially created as a step by step hint to find the Cache of Swag.
