geocache game: the sport where you are the search engine
The official global GPS cache hunt site has a more than adequate motto: “the sport where you are the search engine”
This great sport/game concept is fabulous: someone hides a “cache” in any place in the world and give GPS indications on how to find it on geocache’s website. Then any player with a GPS (Global Positioning System) can go for the quest of this item and, in the meantime, discover new places.
“Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing) is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocacher can place a geocache in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS technology and then share the geocache’s existence and location online. Anyone with a GPS device can then try to locate the geocache.”
Thanks to @sallku for opening my eyes to this wonderful game that is Geocache. First time I knew about this game, I searched if there is a cache in Madagascar. I was a bit skeptical to find positive result to my search as I never heard about this game but … ooooh, look, there is (at least) one cache here in Madgascar, specifically in Antananarivo. Great. More interesting, some other people has discovered it.

Since Madagascar has 5000 km of coast, a scarce road network and a lot to hide and discover, we think that it’s one of the perfect island that should host Geocache game. Any GPS-literate people who wants to continue on what Dayspring started (in 2006 and since then, no one ever did it again)? Any geocacher that stops by this post are encouraged to create new caches
