i think i've heard of this caching stuff before, but i'm curious... what sort of things do people cache? sounds fun to do, but it would probably be really lame if someone just stuck a candy bar under a rock or something.

Most caches will have a log book to sign. some will also include small trinkets for the kids. Some a number u need to include at the site to have ur log....logged as a find.
It's more of a challenge just to find the hidden cache with ur gps...some are hidden very well.
Caches can be from the size of a ammo box to a small camera film container or smaller. A gps will only be accurate to around 15 feet.
Imagine trying to find a camera film container hidden in a woodpecker hole in a tree in say a 30 foot circle. Specially if u don't know what that container even is. Usually they will give some sort of hint...not always....

May be stupid, but what exactly is this? I went to site and read about it but I'm still not sure? Why is a cache?

It is people all over the world that hide small treasures for others to find.
Using a gps we put out something...could be as small as a camera film container to a large ammo box usually with a small notebook called a log for people to sign.
When they find it they sign n go to the website where someone has it posted for people to get the co-ords to go try find it.
They are hidden....
They will post a find at the site if they find it or a not found if they couldn't find it.
Some just have a small container with a code in it for people to use to prove they found it. Code might just be some numbers/letters, etc.
Some container will hold trinkets for the kids for when they find them.
Mine usually have some change. for the kids....
Just anutta world wide past time....
