Geocaching, Without a GPS

Sometimes people may want a little more exploration when they embark on a geocaching adventure.  For theses folks the best advice I can give is go out there in the great outdoors without a GPS device.  Use topographical maps, or satellite maps in order to orient the map with the ground. Basically so you keep the map pointing north, and use the types of trees to identify which part of the map you are currently on.  This eliminates the need for a GPS, and creates a more visceral experience where you can focus on natures beautiful features, rather than your GPS screen.

Here is a video that elaborates on this idea.  Enjoy :)
