That sounds totally stupid but if it gets people up and off the couch great!

As a veteran geocacher in most areas of the Twin Cities, I applaud the efforts of the parks to promote the sport. As an area with countless parks that most people never explore, we have the opportunity to encourage the people with an interest in the gps technology as well as multi-use cell phones in finding a way for the whole family to enjoy a day outdoors that they may not ever have thought of. Thanks!!

My husband and I will be vacationing in MN this summer--we live in FL--and plan to participate in geocaching in Minnesota's parks. I was pleased to learn that the state parks are promoting this activity, so we will probably buy a state park annual pass. Believe me, the geocaching community is well aware of which areas of the country are friendly to our activity, so this is an opportunity for MN to promote tourism in the state.

I find it interesting that you folks in 'the land of the free' need to get permission to do things. Here in New Zealand, it is exactly the opposite... no council would think of limiting citizens' freedoms unless there is a danger. In which case they would be quite specific in notifying people of the danger. But getting permission to wander around a park owned by the people - shudder - how dare they ! -Dafyd= in the REAL land of the free.

"Very interesting. I'll check it out."- posted by kingboreas No, because your already a well known name in the Geocaching community Kingboreas! This is a great sport and hobby! Get out there and try it! And also glad to see the county/state park system start to understand the positive effect this will have on the parks, community, citizens, budget, etc...

This is so much cooler than sitting in front of a computer playing in vertual reality. Think video game crossed with a hiking version of the great race TV show. The more the merrier!!!
