Dead drop or geocache?

Is it just me, or do a lot of the dead drops spies use in the movies look like geocaches?  Perhaps movie directors like to geocache and that's where they get the idea. Or do you suppose geocaching was started by a retired spy who was bored and needed something to do?  I mean, what do spies do when they retire?  Take up stamp collecting or knitting?  It's hard to think of James Bond sitting at home in a robe and slippers watching the telly.  Just saying!
