How about rec.gps? It already exists. That's a big plus.
It's not an alt group, another plus.
There's no traffic there, so geocaching won't be an interloper. That's a plus.
It describes geocaching, although not having geocaching in the name might be a drawback. On the other hand, being more generic might get the notice of new people more than a name like geocaching would.
