Looking For Something That Is Not Lost

Today the kids and I went Geocaching. Geocaching is the recreational activity of hunting for and finding a hidden object by means of GPS coordinates posted on a website.  This activity was part of my life list and I can now update the date!

Before hunting for the hidden objects.

The first search was conducted at a park near our home.  We used my phone in order to find the coordinates of the hidden object.

It was hard to know what to look for but the description and hints were  extremely helpful. Be sure to read up on Geocaching etiquette and terms.

Success! The first object we found.

We moved to our second location to a business park further down the road and found this one in a muddy field. Our shoes and socks got wet but the kids had fun getting messy.

We had so much fun looking for these that we plan on hunting for more in the coming weeks. I will be taking a vacation soon so I plan on looking for more objects where I will be headed.

Have you tried Geocaching? If so what was your experience?

  1. I’ve never personally been but I’ve been thinking about going. It looks like it could be a lot of fun. It’s on the list of things to do once we get up and rolling with a car again.

    That being said, one member of the family has been geocashing before. He’s suggested a few times taking the kids out to do it, so I’m sure he’ll be a great resource there. I’m not sure what’s out there in this area, but they can be found everywhere from what I’ve heard.
