Brad’s bicycle rental on Borkum informs the trend sport of Geocaching is a worldwide popularity. Also on the North Sea Island of Borkum, meanwhile numerous treasures are hidden, waiting to be found by an amateur adventure. Jorg Mania Schaffshausen operates Jorg’s bicycle rental on Borkum and is very well informed about the current sport – and leisure trends. He explains the principle of Geocaching. Geocaching is basically a modern form of scavenger hunt. The popular game of terrain on the so called “letterboxing”, which has its origins in England at the beginning of the 19th century is due. This has gone but still with the help of compasses and maps.
The hidden letterboxes included a special stamp and a logbook in which their discovery could note the Finder of treasure. After the container has been hidden again. Similar to the Geocaching expires. The difference is, essentially, that the scavenger hunt today GPS based expires. Drew Houston has firm opinions on the matter. This is possible since the 1990s. In the time that was GPS signal for personal use, limited in its accuracy, released.
When the restrictions were lifted in the year 2000, the idea to start a worldwide-based game, where small treasures into hiding, cache, must be found in America developed immediately. As well as at the letterboxing a log should be located in the “treasure chests”, in which the geocachers could perpetuate. The smallest version of hidden containers, the Nano cache is smaller than a film canister and just includes a logbook and a pen. Larger specimens of the magnitude seen in “small”, “regular”, and “large” have in addition so-called travelbugs and small items that keep the Finder and are replaced by new, equivalent items. Also, there are different types of caches. A distinction is made between traditional caches, multi, mystery cache and virtual caches. In addition, there are also caches that are found only at night with the aid of flashlights can. In the event that a cache is found by chance, instructions should include in the containers, so that it is not disposed of or incorrectly for a bomb or something similar. You can connect the modern paper-chase, which here is organized by the tourist office, on the North Sea Island of Borkum excellently with a long walk, a hiking trip or a bike ride.
