On a sultry day early this summer, Marcellus Cadd stood in a trendy neighborhood in downtown Austin.

His phone used GPS coordinates to tell him that he was 20 feet away from the object he was aiming for. He walked to the bank of the building’s electricity meter, kneeled down and began to feel down.

“What a hell, I found it!” He said, pulling out a small metal container. Inside was a plastic bag containing paper logs. Cadd signed “Atreides was here” with a geocaching handle.

Groundspeak, Inc. According to Cadd, it is one of the more than 1.6 million active geocachings in the United States, supporting the geocaching community and One of the main apps used by geocaching..

He has participated in essentially high-tech treasure hunts every day for the past three years. This is a volunteer-run game. Some hide the cache, others find it.

But shortly after he started, Black Cad read a forum where people were talking about rarely annoying police during geocaching.

“And I was thinking, guy, I’ve been doing this for 6 months and stopped 7 times.”
