Curt Nickisch of South Dakota Public Radio reports from Sioux Falls on the growing popularity of a new type of scavenger hunt, using Global Positioning System satellites. Enthusiasts hide small caches of knick-knacks and post the GPS coordinates on the website geocaching.com. The game is outlawed in national parks, in order to protect archeological sites.
