Geocaching

 Last week the kids and I were on Spring Break. While on break we decided to try our hands at Geocaching. 


 Geocaching is a free real-world outdoor treasure hunt. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS and can then share their experiences online. 

We chose 5 locations that were listed on the Geocaching site and set out on our hunt. 


I was amazed at how many caches are registered right in our area!! Unfortunately, out of all five locations, we only found one cache. It was super exciting when we found it, though!


Inside each cache are little tokens. The rules are that if you take something out, you have to put something back in of equal value. Once you find a cache, there is a log inside that you sign and date and then you put it back where you found it for the next person to find. The caches range in size. The one we found was a camoflauged pill bottle.


These are the tokens found inside: 


It was really a fun experience! We will definitely be doing more Geocaching!


If you want to give Geocaching a try, you can go to www.geocaching.com. You can register there and get tons of information. Have fun!!
