Excerpts from Wikipedia

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which the participants use a w:Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world.

A dead drop or dead letter box is a method of espionage tradecraft used to pass items between two individuals using a secret location and thus does not require them to meet directly. Using a dead drop permits a case officer and agent to exchange objects and information while maintaining operational security. The method stands in contrast to the live drop, so called because two persons meet to exchange items or information.

Dead drop agents are normal members of the investigating Community (also known as OTP agents) who have offered to help locate drops around the world.

This page is frequently updated depending on the current ongoing drops. Drops that are recent (especially "Incomplete" ones) are of particular interest to the community - please discuss on IRC or Unfiction if you want to visit one of these locations.
