GPS Egg Hunt

ELKTON, Md. (AP) -- An old tradition meets new technology.

A Maryland woman is inviting area children to an Easter egg hunt tomorrow on her 23-acre farm near Elkton. But the kids will be using global positioning satellite technology to find the eggs.

Treasure hunters will be given map coordinates that will lead them to the vicinity of each candy-filled plastic egg. Then they'll have to look really hard.

Farmer Stacy Hindt says she'll have a few G-P-S units that people can borrow, or families can bring their own units.

Hindt's own children, eight-year-old Katie and three-year-old Brandon are veterans at treasure-hunting using map coordinates, known as "geocacheing."
