Geocaching is a recreational activity using GPS receivers to describe the location of a hidden object using coordinates in latitude and longitude, and then challenging other people to use the coordinates to try and locate the hidden object. The hidden object is called a "geocache", and is almost invariably some type of container which holds a log book at the very least, and usually some trade items. Anyone who finds the cache must sign the log book and then replace the cache as they found it. The person also has the option of trading something they brought with them for a trade item from the cache. All it requires is a GPSr, and an internet connection and computer. Map skills certainly help, but in many urban areas and along many trails, even that is not a requirement.
