On May 2, 2000, at approximately midnight, eastern savings time, the great blue switch was flipped, and changed selective availability on GPS units. On May 3, Dave Ulmer, wanting to test the accuracy hid a target in the woods. He called the idea the "Great American GPS Stash Hunt" The idea was simple: Hide a container out in the woods and note the coordinates with a GPS unit. The finder would then have to locate the container with only the use of his or her GPS receiver. The rules for the finder were simple: "Take some stuff, leave some stuff." The coordinates: N 45° 17.460 W 122° 24.800 Within the first month, Mike Teague, the first person to find Ulmer's stash, began gathering the online posts of coordinates around the world . And Geocaching was born
