Being an anglophone living in Canada, I have to choose words properly when we use French words in the
English language. I might get extradited to Quebec to face the language police. They exist, google it.

I was wondering if this hobby should be renamed:

Geocacher, Geochercher, and Geotrouver.
hide seek find

Because cacher without the chercher never becomes trouver.

it might make for a long website name though

www.geocachergeocherchergeotrouver.com

Oh never mind, I'll take my chances with the language police, I don't feel like typing in that long of a URL.

I think the term is expanded to cover hide/seek/find and even "Did Not Find" (the point when we have ceased to seek, for now). We say "we're going caching" to mean that we're spending some time seeking geocaches. So maybe the term will be added to the lexicon, and, with luck, we'll never have to say "geochercher" ever again. :D
