There is now a geocache merit badge available for Boy Scouts. It is very informative in how GPS works. I sat in on my son's class and really learned alot. I had not known how a GPS can zero in to one square meter and how they come up with the longitude and latitude numbers. I would encourage any parent of a scout to get the merit badge. It was also fun finding the caches.
I am glad to hear that BSA is keeping up with technology.
I am a geocacher and spend far to much time chasing them. A 1 hr roadtrip becomes several hours as I cant pass up a cache. LOL
