Ed Scott (edscott) admits, “I’m sort of obsessed with maps.” The Pennsylvania, USA geocacher discovered more than 2,500 geocaches using only maps, aerial photos and his wits. Watch Geocaching.com Presents: “Geocaching Without GPS” to see how edscott geocaches without using a GPS device.
He says, “In the beginning I preferred to do it this way. Then after that it became, well, people expect me not to have a GPS. So that’s what I’ll keep on doing.” The geocacher does use a GPS device occasionally, but says he’ll never use a GPS device 100% of the time.
