I know that not everything needs a label. And that there are some things that defy classification. But when it comes to being able to intelligently represent ideas to others, especially the uninitiated, it is helpful, if not necessary, to be able to describe something in terms of its classification. Geocaching is one of those ideas.

So, when you are talking about geocaching with folks, either trying to explain it to those who don't know anything about, or otherwise, what do you refer to geocaching as? Do you call it a sport? A pastime? A game? A hobby? An outdoor activity? What?

And does what you call it when talking to others differ at all from how you really think of it? I know most of us could probably consider it to be an obsession, but that aside, what to you think geocaching is?
