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.
