This is a book about passion for a game.

Describing the exciting and adventurous world surrounding geocaching--a worldwide hunt in which treasures are located using global positioning system (GPS) devices--this book offers an understanding and application of the principles and best practices of the game. What's different is that the authors wrap this knowledge in a tapestry of human stories that range from hilarious to touching. Paul and Dana Gillin interviewed 40 of the world's 50 most prolific geocachers as well as experts in container design, "extreme" geocaching and other dimensions of the game. They tell how this global activity inspires passion that has helped people heal frayed marriages, establish new friendships--and even save lives.
 
With rich illustrations complementing secrets culled from experts, this resource gives participants new skills for enhancing their experience and provides a visual montage of the different kinds of spots hobbyists can expect to find in the field.

From the Author:

We're Paul and Dana Gillin and we love geocaching. When we went looking for a book to help us become better geocachers, we were surprised to find that no new titles had been published in more than four years. That's why we wrote The Joy of Geocaching.

We interviewed scores of the world's most successful and enthusiastic cachers as well as geocache owners, extreme cachers, community organizers, educators and even businesspeople who use caching to promote their companies and destinations. We accompanied people on power-caching expeditions and visited with local groups. We traveled all over America in search of log books in Tupperware containers.

In the process, we discovered the geocaching is more than a game. To its most enthusiastic players, it's a passion, a love affair and a life-changing experience. We heard hundreds of wonderful stories and the packed as many as we could into this book.

The Joy of Geocaching teaches the ins and outs of a game that counts more than three million players in nearly every country in the world. But more importantly, it's about people connecting with each other to find health and happiness through a worldwide treasure hunt.
