I may be one. What is it? If it is drinking alone in my garage then yes and a damn fine one at that.

Geocaching /ˈdʒiːəˌkęʃɪŋ/ is an outdoor recreational activity, in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world.

A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. After signing the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (Tupperware or similar) or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little financial value, although sometimes they are sentimental. Geocaching shares many aspects with benchmarking, trigpointing, orienteering, treasure-hunting, letterboxing, and waymarking.

Sounds almost as fun as drinking alone in the garage..... Seriously it sounds pretty cool. I don't know where I would find the time to do it tho.

I've never done it before. I did learn about it when we were studying communications in my computing class, and it does seem pretty cool. Cool
