Geocaching - A community-driven hobby wherein people input coordinates into GPS devices that lead them to small boxes in remote or hidden areas. The boxes contain an assortment of small items, trinkets, or note pads. Finders of a geocache are to place something of theirs into the box and taking something out in exchange. They can leave messages on notepads, etc, then they put the box back where they found it. There are communities online where people can report back if they found the box, if it was difficult, or if it was missing, etc.
The community started in the relatively early days of GPS devices, before they were as ubiquitous as they are now. It's still a nichey activity, with lots of caches being on hiking trails, etc. Recently, GPS devices are easily available in the form of our very favorite tools of Big Brother - smart phones.
I think we should target the GeoCachers. By necessity, the community is tight knit, keeping track of existing caches and updating them. That means recurring themes in the boxes could possibly be remarked upon in discussions. The activity also attracts the curious - a cache might have any number of otherwise pointless items, but they're basically buried treasure troves.
Pope cards and meme bombs are the stand by for things like this, so maybe this is an offshoot of postergasm. Here, though, they're placed where the individual is specifically looking. And on top of it all, we can have some fun looking for geocaches. Hell, if we learn enough about the community, maybe we can make a few of our own.
So, is this something people would be interested in? Which meme bombs might speak best to this group? Does anyone know more about the activity than what I've outlined here?
Props to Richter for prodding me with a polearm to post this.
