Geocaching - It's an activity or game done with a GPS instrument. Merit badge proposals were received in the years 2002 and 2007 and denied as such by the National Advancement Committee. However, a new Geographical Information Systems (GIS) merit badge is under study and is a possibility, which if it happens, would include a geocaching activity.

I took public speaking in college and it was one of the courses that i hated at the time but i think i have used it more than some of required classes i had to take.
