OK, I have found this site, now what exactly is this geocaching?
In short, geocaching is a worldwide scavenger hunt game utilizing global positioning satellites (GPS) to locate hidden containers (aka caches) that were placed out by other game participants. It is a family friendly game that encourages persons of all ages to get outside and visit places they may never ordinarily go. The premier website to search for caches in this area is www.geocaching.com. This is where all our local geocaches will be listed. You will need to register at their website to begin your hunt.

Day Trips Around The Area
We are going to try something new, to use this part of the site to showcase cache sites that we think others may enjoy visiting and finding the geocaches located there, but are easily accessible in a single day road trip.
These three caches are located in one of my favorite geocaching towns which is Vicksburg, MS.
Gilbratar of the West is located at the Old Courthouse, and make sure to plan to spend time there touring it.
Tour Vicksburg is a fun multi, and one I patterned another local cache after.
Vicksburg Riverfront Murals is another fun multi, but is a premium member only cache.
There are plenty of other caches in the Vicksburg area, as well as the great National Battlefield Park located there. There should be plenty of stuff to do and see while there.
Meet and Greet
