* In ''Film/FindingOhana'' Pili is introduced doing the finals of a geocaching competition, which she wins.


Caches come in many forms, from tiny 'nano' caches, through tupperware tubs and ammo boxes, all the way up to crates or barrels. If it's large enough, cachers can find items in the cache called swag, which can be swapped for other items (on a trade-equal-or-trade-up basis), but the main joy of caching is the hunt and the find, with every cache containing a logbook to record the visit. It can also be logged online, with room to details stories about the search.

!!Tropes relating to geocaching:
*BanOnPolitics: Using caches for promotion of causes (or businesses) is strongly frowned upon.
*NintendoHard: Caches with a difficulty rating of 5 are intended to be this.
*SelfImposedChallenge: ''Very'' common. Find as many caches as you can in one day, or caches of different types, or caches of all difficulty ratings, or find a geocache every day for as many consecutive days as you can (or even be the first to find a new geocache every month, week or day)... and that's just for starters.
