(Wauseon, OH) You won't need directions to find a convention at the Fulton County Fairgrounds this weekend.
That's because the 13th annual Midwest Geobash involves people who treasure-hunt using Global Positioning Satellites-- or GPS. You could call geocaching the original version of Pokemon Go.
Geocaching uses longitude and latitude to guide smartphone or computer users to hidden outdoor containers with a logbook inside to be signed by the user...and possibly a small trinket as a prize.
The three-day Fulton County Fairgrounds event usually draws about 1,500 game-players and their families from across the Midwest who camp all weekend. Geobash runs today through Saturday and features a poker run Friday with destinations to shops in and around Wauseon.
This year's theme centers on the Back to the Future movies with a time traveling penguin as a mascot.
