[edit] Programme


Geocaching is an open air activity joining technology with physical exercise. In general it's a modern version of a treasure hunt using a GPS instead of the map. This year we offer two "caches", one for beginners and one advanced. The two cache visites are guided but experienced geocachers can do them on their own. The caches of Strossen Wibbelt are not official.

Le Geocaching est une activité plein-air qui réunit technologie et exercise physique. En principe c'est une chasse au trésor moderne utilisant un GPS au lieu d'une carte. Cette année on propose deux "caches", un pour débutants et un pour avancés. Les deux caches sont accompagnés, mais les pros du caching peuvent les faire aux-mêmes. Les caches du Strossen Wibbelt ne sont pas des caches officiels.

Geocaching ist eine Betätigung die Technik und Bewegung vereint. Im Prinzip eine moderne Version der Schnitzeljagd bei der anstatt einer Karte, ein GPS benutzt wird. Dieses Jahr stellen wir zwei "Caches" vor, einer für Anfänger une einer für Fortgeschrittene. Die zwei Caches werden in Begleitung gesucht, erfahrene Geocacher können sie auch alleine lösen. Die Caches von Strossen Wibbelt sind nicht offiziell.
